I hope all the food I eat in 2008 is eaten with the same attitude.
Now on to what has worked for me in the past …
- Menu planning
- Exercising daily
- No evening snacks
- Lots o' water
- Monthly progress photos
- Daily – or almost daily – blog posting
- Daily weigh-in
- Food journaling [I use CalorieKing software for this]
- No sugar
This year will be different because Mr. Shrinking Knitter has retired and will be here all the time. He expects at least one meal a day. [He manages to feed himself for breakfast and lunch, if he wants food during the day, but does enjoy having a nice, home-cooked dinner.] When he was working out of town, I had three nights where I didn't have to eat at all if I didn't want to.
Obviously, when I look at my lack of weight-loss progress in 2007, I wanted to. Heh.
Here's what weather.com told me this morning:
I have a dentist's appointment late this morning, an hour's drive away; not sure if I'll make it. I will make it to the treadmill today, and the weight bench as well. My shoulder/arm/bicep still hurts, but I need to do some strength training or else!
