No sugary treats - check
Work out on stationary bike - check
Thanks for the comments, guys, I appreciate it.
I have never been one to journal my food intake - one of the reasons that I liked South Beach so much was that Dr. A. said that you didn't have to measure, track, etc., just eat the "right" things ..... his original "theory" has undergone some change since the early '90s but his approach was just right for me at the time. I am very good about my basic food needs each day - fat free greek yogurt with fruit and walnuts for breakfast, a big salad for lunch with lots of vegetables and chicken or ham with and my own balsamic dressing (never tire of it) and either chicken, salmon, lean beef (on occasion) or high fiber cereal (!) with low fat milk for dinner (my husband and I both often work late so cereal is a healthy, quick option). My problem truly is the number of times per week that I now permit myself to have high fat desserts. I just can't do it more than once, max twice per week. And for now, each day my goal is not to do it at all to prove to myself that I still have discipline!
I have been so annoyed with my self that I failed to recognize that in mid-October I passed my 5 year mark on South Beach - it is only this year that I have started to gain and not had the discipline to reverse the trend.
On to Day 2 ....
