I admittedly have a problem with breakfast food. I love it. Bacon especially. It is my weakness. So, while I've been convinced that I need to give up my daily breakfast sandwich and go "cold turkey", I'm just easing myself out of it and making some modifications to save calories. This week, I switched from using an everything bagel to a toasted english muffin. I also eliminated the butter on the muffin, and cut back from 3 slices of bacon to 2. While this isn't the healthiest meal around, I've saved myself 300 calories just by doing those things. I'm happy with it.
This will also be the week that I will consistently drink my 8 cups of water a day. I've got 2 days down already. I leave town for Mississippi on Friday, and I will make a point of buying a bottle of water every time we stop for gas. I will probably throw in a diet soda here and there, but overall, I will just keep at the water.
I probably won't be able to get on here while I'm away, but while I'm gone I'm still going to hold myself accountable. I'm going to write everything down that I eat so that I can attempt to add it when I get back. I'm not going to give up just because I'm going on a trip.
Well, back to work. Have a loverly day!
