Realizations

My experiment to go without meat yesterday was a raging success. I did not eat breakfast, basically because I wasn't hungry, but I did have a banana around 9:30. Then at 11:30 I had lunch which consisted of a large salad with beans and beets and all kinds of good stuffs. Then around 2 I started to get hungry so at 2:30 I ate my apple. Finally for dinner I had burritos made with ground chicken. Actually, I had one with ground chicken and the other with refried beans. That was it, oh wait, I did have a handful of Fritos and some peanuts, but that was it. I felt pretty darn good and I was in bed by 9:30. Woke up at 4 when the alarm went off and realized I was awake so by 4:15 I was up and I feel good this morning.

The realizations? I think I've been eating way too much food. In spite of the fact that I eat pretty well, I think I've just been eating too much. Also, not eating meat during the day is a good thing. There are all kinds of other things that provide prot…

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, ob…

Small steps

For just one day I am going to workout and track everything I eat. Every night I am going to make a to-do list of the things I will do the next day for just one day. No looking any further than the next day. No worrying that my workout calendar I full through most of May. No thinking about the things coming up. Only think about just one day. So for today, and today only, I will:

Goals

I really haven't set any goals in a long, long time. Of course looking back through the archives I realize that I did this in February. That didn't work out so well but I'm willing to give it another go.

Tomorrow is May 1st and I would like to have a plan for the month. My big goal is to, of course, lose weight but I'm really tired of focusing on that. I want to try it from a little different angle this time. My plan is to focus on the activity and let the eating take care of itself. There will be some limitations on the eating; dessert once a week, on free meal a week, use the small plate for dinner, and have a salad with every lunch. Nothing earth shattering, just some common sense stuff that will help me stay on track.

As for the activity part, I plan to attack that on 2 fronts. First, I really want to work out more and I want to start running. In the mail today I got my Women's Running magazine and I was leafing through it. They have a training plan …
