I did ok yesterday. I ate around 1200 calories. We were in the car for about 6 hours and I ached all over when we got back, but we made it there and back with no incident and my daughter made it to the convention. I'll rest easier when she's back at home. I'm not feeling as anxious right now, but it'll come.
They ate at Whattaburger and I ate my tuna. I felt really hungry by the time we got to eat so I didn't think I was going to make it, but I did. How did I do it? I don't really know. I drank two massive (it turns out Whattaburger's large is actually massive) cups of Coke Zero and ate my tuna on the way home (StarKist Lunch To Go tuna salad kits are pretty good). I drink a lot of Coke Zero. I just have to keep reminding myself that I have to lose weight by the time my daughter graduates college next year. I don't want to attend graduation looking like I do now. Which is why I started this blog - to MAKE myself stay on a diet.
I haven't really talked about what I eat. I don't cook or fix anything special. Everything I eat is pretty much ready to go when I buy it at the store. I eat frozen dinners and the tuna salad kits. I don't drink enough water. I drink Coke Zero. Hopefully, by the end of this thing I'll be eating healthier... and not smoking. I wanted to get used to eating less before I try to quit smoking. By April 1st next year, I want to have completely changed my habits.
I've been like Clark Griswold waiting for my bonus. I was thinking I would get on a stop smoking program after I get my summer bonus. By the end of the summer, I want to have stopped smoking. So, there, I've said it - now I've got to do it.
So there you have it... not very healthy... hoping to get healthier. If you can relate, I'm really glad you're here. Contact me and we can do this together! :)
