I could wait until school starts to actually do something about it, but that is like the teacher equivalent of a lazy New Year's Resolution Setter. Plus, I have all of these relatives that are losing tons of weight with exercise and really healthy eating. Seriously, my dad is managing to lose weight despite the fact that he has to eat out like two-thirds of his meals and is constantly traveling. My sister-in-law has two young children and a part-time job. How does someone lose weight when they are constantly surrounded by chicken nuggets and pudding? (just kidding, Emily, I know that's not what you feed your kids.) I'm a total wimp if I can't do this over the next couple of weeks. All I have is some light teacher training. What's my excuse? "Oh, yeah, about that, I haven't really been able to lose weight because I've been really busy sitting at Barnes and Noble blogging. It's just not a good time..."
So for the next two weeks, here it is:
1. No sugar other than fruit.
2. No snacks other than vegetables. What this really means is no triscuits. KILL ME.
3. High fat dairy only in extremely small portions. (I have a feeling that I'm going to have to avoid HEB. I will NOT be able to handle the temptation of cheese samples.)
4. Eating out will be a salad or sushi- the raw kind, not the tempura-fried, mayonaised-out kind.
Exceptions with be my birthday, and my long run when I will have cake and gatorade respectively. That's it. Now, I'm going to push publish and commit. It's not that hard, I will just press the button that says publish. Now. Do it. Press.....the.....button. PRESSPUBLISHYOU@$%^&WIMP!
