welcome back old friend
Do you want to know what happens when I lose weight? ....I start to feel skinny, and becasue i no longer feel like the state of Texas, I remember how much I enjoy cheese and crackers and french fries....and who am I kidding - beer too. Pretty soon I am right back where I started. Not any higher, just back to looking puffy in pictures and hating the way I look in a bathing suit. Because of this I am returning to some pre-easter eating habits which include: no alcohol and my favorite snack (pictured above) 100 calorie packs of popcorn with balsamic and tapatio hot sauce. Seriously it is delicious. And the hot sauce totally killls my appetite. I also bought these delicious little things:
These are also very low cal, very refreshing, and quite tasty for a little at-work summer breakfast. I have only tried the red grapefruit cups but I would highly reccomend them.
So anyways - this is the new plan. Starve a little bit, and start weighing myself again. I haven't had a scale for about 5 years and guess what? I have been "puffy" for about 5 years. I would also like to follow some of the workout plans that people post on facebook incessantly but that seems sort of unrealistic. I truly don't understand how some people manage to go to the gym at 11am, do yoga twice a day at 10 and 3 or go for a run at 4:30......what about work? Who pays the bills when your job is to work out all day then rub it in the faces of bored people who are actually working and consequently become too tired to work out afterwards? I don't get it.....but i want to.
