Me = chicken.
This morning I looked at the scales and was too wimpy to stand on them. I know I feel heavy and my clothes appear to have shrunk in the wash over Christmas – all of them or at least all the ones that have waist bands.
So the massive cliché of having a New Year’s Resolution… one I actually intend to stick to though – so that’s a bit novel. I WILL LOST WEIGHT. AND EAT LOW CARB. AND TRAIN.
I’m doing better with the food now that New Year is out of the way. I admit that we’ve been going down the ‘use it up before being good’ train rather than the ‘get rid of it because its bad for you’ train but I bought so little that even including the gifts we got in the chocolate line there wasn’t a lot of scope for evil there. The booze bought in for people visiting has been another matter but now I’m sick of it and how it makes me feel so that’s stopping too. I hope that the high carb nature of my eating over Christmas caused some water retention and bloating that will disappear fairly quickly not that I’m not doing that any more (hello scrambled eggs for breakfast… every day) but we’ll have to see. I plan to weigh myself on Sunday as the official start point so if I don’t post for the next month you’ll know exactly has well that went…
I’m also reading more motivational books and watching the plethora of diet shows that appear on TV this time of year to help get myself started. I’m currently reading The Calorie Myth by Jonathan Bailor – only just started it so its too soon to comment. (Diane I haven’t watched the show you mentioned in your comment yet but I did record it and plan to watch to today along with any others I can find.)
I also want to be a lot more consistent with filling in my food diary on MyFitnessPal.com and keeping this blog updated. So much as I don’t want to and would rather hide it when I weigh on Sunday…. I’m going to fess up and tell you what the bastard scales say…
