Well... I ordered another bottle of colon cleanse. I did the last one about 6 or so months ago and I decided to do it again. I bought a bottle for my hubby too. I'm a bit frightened to see how his turns out seeing as how he has lots of tummy issues and has been to weird middle eastern places.
I have decided that I better check in. I haven't really done very well. I was sick all last week. Sunday, I got up early and went on a early morning stroll. It felt nice. I also went bike riding with the littles too. I ate okay until the evening.
I think the more I keep obsessing over it the more I gain. I mean low-carb, low-fat, calorie counting, no gluten, no sugar, soup diet, eat six small meals, eat 3 meals. There are soooooo many choices. I am all so confused.
I can't get a groove on the eating. I really think the best thing for me is to set a calorie limit and try to eat as best healthy choices as possible. But then when I want whole wheat toast I am thinking I shouldn't because it is a carb. ugugugughhhh.
I've been doing a 20 minute work-out every night before bed. It's not a lot, but it's something. I've been big time craving chocolate this past week and I keep picking at it. I need to just sit down and have a giant candy bar or something, because the picking here and there isn't satisfying the craving and I'm sure I'm taking in more fat and calories than if I just pigged out once and got over it.
I've been good at throwing away things that I'm full of or don't like instead of feeling like I'm "wasting" it and finishing it even if I don't want it. The other day I bought a natural sugar Pepsi because I was having a rough day and really needing some carbonation. The drink was really gross and I threw half away. I was proud of myself for tossing it since that would have been another 100-something calories and I wasn't getting any enjoyment out of it. Also at Costco, the kids and I had frozen yogurt. I ate half and threw the rest away because I was full. Usually I would just finish it, so it wasn't going to "waste".
I'm Angie! I'm a 32 year old single mom of 3. I have an on again, off again relationship with eating healthy and exercising. I try not to "diet" but just watch what I eat and work out. I journal to hold myself accountable. Wish me luck!
