Where do I go from here?

I'm at a point where I'm not sure what to do.  I plan every night to get up in the morning and workout but that just doesn't happen.  I'm eating pretty well, except for the Snickers and cake on Tuesday.  I feel like a behemoth and my pants are getting tight.  I'm really not exactly sure why as I haven't been going crazy.  Also, I'm tired. Constantly tired. So I'm not sure what to do, I'm really not.  It's the first time I've ever been so completely stymied.  In the past, working out and eating right has always brought me around, but this time it doesn't seem to be working as well.  So maybe it's time for something drastic.  Maybe I should consider some cheap adipex just to get the ball rolling.... IDK.......

In other news, there is a new movie coming out, Forks over Knives, that looks really interesting. The premise of it is that a plant based diet can alleviate many of the medical problems we have today; heart disease, diabetes, obesity, etc. Know I don't know for sure if that's really true, but what I do know is that for a long time I was a quasi-vegetarian in that I would go a few days a week without meat. I did it for health reasons and really liked the way it made me feel. I should clarify my views on vegetarians. I believe, beyond a reasonable doubt, that humans are supposed to eat meat. The teeth we have in our mouths and the digestive tract that we have indicate that we are supposed to be omnivores eating both plants and animals. However, I do not believe that humans should eat as much meat as we do. For most of human history meat has been very hard, or expensive, to obtain, so it was a rarity. Look at the cavemen, only when they killed something did they get to eat meat, and then only for a couple of days until it was gone or went bad. Also, the meat we get is horrible, full of fat and all kinds of gunk that wild animals never have. So eating meat everyday for every meal is completely unnatural - in my opinion. I believe that is also why meat keeps you fuller longer. The human body is not really "used" to eating it so it takes longer to digest and fills you up longer. So, what exactly am I babbling about? Well, I think it's time to go back to skipping meat once in a while. I'm going to try and center my lunches around vegetarian meals. I'm going to reduce the amount of meat I eat at dinner and some nights cut it out completely. Ultimately I want to reduce my intake of meat, sugar and processed food, and considering the way I feel now it's a good time to start.

 I have always said that I'm someone who likes routine. I like knowing what I'm doing when. I like knowing that things will get done...
