My Lame Plan

Hi, all! Since The Boss said we needed to post our diet/exercise regimens, here I am. I've kind of put this off because I don't have any exercise plan. I'm the laziest person you will ever meet.

So far, my plan has been to quit eating fast food and not eat anything that is just straight up crap. Since ending my affair with Burger King, I've even noticed that my skin has cleared up and I don't feel like a slug all of the time. I've been eating a lot of salad, apples, lowfat cheese (Ick. Sawdust. But it is still, technically, cheese. And I love cheese!) and just a small portion of whatever I cook for the family for supper.

For what it's worth, last week, I thought about getting on the treadmill. That isn't a thought that has ever crossed my mind before. Maybe I will get on it sometime.

Sounds like you've concocted a great plan, Chickie. It's cutting the food that's the most important. Exercise won't do much unless you cut the calories back. Keep it up, yer starting off fine.

Lowfat String Cheese is pretty good.

Actually, regular string cheese is VERY good - and only 70 calories per stick. Makes a good snackie.

Yea, I gave up eating junk food too. And I feel so much better -- but if I slip up and eat a burger I can tell a difference in the way I feel. Also, I am taking vitamins -- a multi, B, D, and Magnesium -- I am loosing weight without ever trying -- I think my body was hungry for nutrition. Good luck -- Oh, and I understand the back fat thing too.

It's weird how when you cut something naughty out (foodwise, anyhow), the visible effects are almost instantaneous. Way to go!!

Lowfat cheese though, I don't know. I'd almost rather go without.

I went out last night and bought some "regular" string cheese to supplement the sawdust. It gives me hope.

And this morning? Instead of getting up and scarfing down two cookies and a glass of milk? I had turkey slices, cheese and some pickles! Go me! I have a habit of eating when I'm half asleep so this was a huge accomplishment!

Go Chickie! Oh crap, now I've got this song stuck in my head. I wish I didn't.

I was out with some friends last night, and had a Carolina burger (with chili on) and the best fries ever. After only a week of cutting back portions, I felt way overfull, and I didn't like it one bit.

I'm with you on the sawdust thing - I'd rather have a carrot or a dry cracker

AND!!! String Cheese meets the "Coochie Test"

One nice thing about getting on a treadmill now in the winter is that you'll be ready to rock the outdoors come springtime!

Congrats on breaking up with the King. I hear he's in Kalamazoo, heartbroken.
