Tomorrow, I start a new chapter.

I am starting the carb sensitive diet from the Curves book. I've been counting calories and not getting anywhere. I picked up the Curves book at the thrift store and decided it's worth a shot.
So in preparation, we went and got week 1 groceries. I'm a bit queasy from the cost but my husband reminded me that we bought other stuff too like trash bags, some baggies, a couple of some new style ziplock bowls. I managed to find everything I need except for something called Kitchen Bouquet and protein shakes. I could only find slim fast or special K brand version both at the store or at CVS. Neither is the right kind, so on Sunday I will not have a shake but on Monday our plan is to go to a couple other stores during errands and I'll check for shakes.
I'm a bit squicked by the plain yogurt. Ohmygosh.. just writing about it is making me grossed out. It's plain, people. I am not sure how that is going to go but I will give it a fair try. Flavored yogurt is a bit squicky, plain.. is.. ick.
I got two batteries, replace the one in the scale so I can do proper weigh in (without having to step on it repeatedly to get past the "LO" it flashes hehe) and another for my pedometer that croaked recently.
Feeling better from the illness I've had for the last few weeks, but the lupus isn't doing so hot. I am okay for light exercise. Biking goes well again, I still have to get it done tonight. I'll get back to strength training again as well. I'm hoping that with this protein based diet I will have more energy perhaps in which to get things done.
Tonight I'm thinking I might break out some of the stuff we bought and start pre-sorting it into baggies and get it into the box I'll use to hold all of that stuff. Six small meals a day is whoaa... I think though, that I will feel better. I find it very difficult to hold out till meal time on any given day, by the time it's time to eat I am so beyond hungry that sometimes I find it difficult to even eat because my stomach feels like it's just so cramped it can't handle food. So I am hoping that will be a nice benefit to having to eat so often. The good news is, I should be able to just fit the stuff into my bento box for days we are out running errands. I can pack a small bag with a freezer cube, my bento, a Nalgene full of water and be able to hold over till we get home.
I feel motivated tonight, we'll see how I feel tomorrow.. or better yet.. we'lls ee how I do on whatevre days require plain yogurt. Dude.. seriously.. gross me out! My husband suggested I pre-measure it into the popsicle forms we have and make myself some frozen pops or put it into a small plastic bowl or something and eat it like icecream. I could do that I think, it'd be so cold it wouldn't taste like much anyway.
Working up energy now to load the dishwasher, wipe the stove, and get my biking in. I have another episode of Rosemary & Thyme to watch from Netflix! Netflix makes exercising more fun when I have dvds or streaming to watch.
I hope I can do this, I hope I see results, I hope I am not doomed due to medication to remain at this weight. I have stayed at the same weight.. no gains, no losses really.. for months and months. Holding steady makes me feel a little more confident.
I have eaten a bit like crap some days, so if I eat real good.. surely.. I'll be a thin cat eventually, right? I hope so.
