Long time come [Mar. 14th, 2007|05:15 pm]

Wow.  I can't believe I haven't posted to this LJ since the day my mom died.  Wow.

I've been following the Abs Diet.  It isn't really a diet.  It just gives me more structure when trying to eat healthily and happily.  I really like it.  I had been working out at the fitness room at my old office building, but there is not gym at my new office.  I'm going to do as the author of the Abs Diet suggests and just hang tight during the first two weeks.  This is my second week.  I'm not following it to a "T" so I'm not losing weight as quickly as I probably could.  I actually don't feel bad about that.  I'm still losing weight.  Not much but a little is still more than none!

It is cool that just a week and a half into changing my eating habits, and my body has already adjusted A LOT.  I am not craving sweets and junk food anywhere near as much as I was.  In fact, on my "cheat" meal I can barely stomach the junk!  AND my portions are really getting in line with what they should be.  I never realized how easy it is to over eat when you don't know how much a portion should be.  Have you actually ever checked out how much a serving of peanut butter is and how much that looks like after you've measured it out?  It is so, so, so much less than I thought.  And you know what?  The smaller portions are starting to fill me up.

Anyhow, I like the new way of eating.  Sandra and I really needed to do this and it has helped me tremendously. :)  I can't wait til I start working out!
