After many unsuccessful attempts to consistently create a calorie deficit, I now find myself here. On a Monday afternoon, after a long day at work, eating a piece of frozen key lime pie. In my bed. (Yes, I am ashamed to admit it, but hey, I did get up at 5:30 this morning for a sweaty spin class at the Y. ) It is quite tasty, but after I have finished, I think to myself....was it worth it?
Moderation is a word I hate. It's either all or nothing. That's one reason I suspect calorie counting to be so annoying. You can still eat cookies and lose weight?! Yeah, a cookie the size of a quarter! No, thanks. Because, I will end up eating 30 quarter sized cookies. I'd rather cut out certain foods all together, but that usually backfires when it comes to dropping lbs. I was vegan for a long while, but that's expensive when you're in college. I got tired of black beans, and tofu is pricey and hard to make! And then I was strictly GF (gluten-free) for a long time, because I found out I had a wheat allergy. But, I think I got it out of my system or something, because I haven't had a wheat headache in forever! So, I eat baked goods again. Then I was a gf vegan for like a month. I felt great, but it's a big lifestyle change, and I wasn't completely prepared to make the total switch over. Maybe when I have my own refrigerator.
So, yeah, here I am. Relaxing under my down comforter, with my fan on high, hiding out in my room because Florida is stinkin' hot at 5:30 in the afternoon. And yes, I am wishing the pie was still in the fridge.
And, so begins phase 1 of my tri transformation.
I start tomorrow since I am definitely done eating for the day!
I can't go any further in my training until I shed 15 lbs.
So, please share your tips, tricks, and recipes! I want to hear what's worked for you! And, if you want a calorie partner, I'm your gal. Two is better than one, but not when you're eating pie...or pancakes...or brownies...or....nevermind.
And, tomorrow I will start posting my food/training log.
If I can do it, you can do it.
