sucking on a can of diet coke, musing about my life....
Friday, November 13, 2009
Yeah yeah, i know coke is bad for you and i feel my bones dissolving as i'm swallowing this vile phosphoric acid- laden concoction down my throat, but right this second i just don't care.
I've been keeping my diet thing for 3.5 weeks now, with VERY FEW SLIP-UPS. And, you know, it works. i'm about 10 lbs down, my brand new jeans that i bought right before i started calorie-counting (cute ones from Dana Buchman for Kohl's, only 20 bucks!!!!) are ALREADY too big on me. And, most importantly, DH has been extremely supportive (as he always have been) and I can totally see the difference in the way he deals with me when i'm in my usual slump vs. when i'm trying to hold it together. Somehow, I am much more appealing to him when I am determined and pushing along with the plan. Dealing with calorie counting is worth it if only just for this! I think the only thing that can make him more excited is my exercising. Well, that has been generally a problem. I'm PMSing in the worst way for the last week--have no energy and no desire to workout. Coming home late from work and having absolutely frigging unreasonable schedule full of unexpected things just plainly sucks. And, while I don't particularly plan on revealing what i do and where, let's just say I can't exactly exercise at work, as what's required for me is sitting and staring at the computer for hours on end, while being surrounded by people. While it is incredibly mind-numbing, it also depresses me quite a bit, and by the time I get home, i just wanna crawl into a dark hole and die, except i need to get up in the morning to do it (as well as my other work responsibilities) all over again. However, this too shall pass, and I do have an exit plan in motion except that i still have 8 months left. So, as i'm preparing to basically change my life 100% (oh yeah, i'm moving from the city to the boonies, buying a house and i changing my job), i'd like to also change my body. I hope this will keep me focused--what definitely helps is that i'm not feeling deprived.
is there is a point to this musing? not really. Other than, i'll keep on keeping on and so should you. I've always said--any diet works as long as you stick to it. i'm planning to stick to calorie counting.
