So, ask me how the dieting thing is going.
C'mon. I DARE ya.
(Chorus of Constant Readers) HOW BAD IS IT??
It's bad. It's gosh darnitall freakin' annoying, is what it is.
I don't think I had super crazy expectations. I am not out to starve myself, just to be healthy. And to avoid purchase of size 13 pants. I just want my Wii Fit to tell me that I am "normal" instead of "overweight." Just ONCE.
So, I started up a spreadsheet and allotted myself meals for a week, with reduced caloric intake. I had a birthday dinner to attend, which included a gallon sized sangria. One cannot really plan for such things, but, well, I adjusted. I went to the gym for an extra class that week, and I walked a bit longer at lunch. I didn't get around to weighing myself until the end of the week, but when I did, I set a modest goal to lose 2 pounds in 2 weeks. Nothing nutty. Just keepin' on keepin' on. Right?
Wrong. This past week I have had one beer after work. One!
I had one serving of cookies when they put out a tin chock FULL of servings in the kitchen at work. One!
I ate my stupid egg white omelets with kale, and my (actually delicious) turkey chili daily.
I went to the gym three times, and I went on walks at lunch every day despite it being 18 degrees out side. Every. Freakin. Day!!
And, I gained 0.2 pounds.
My Wii Fit informed me (after pointing out that I am overweight) that if I continue with my current pace, it will be very difficult to achieve my goal.
Which is now to lose 2.2 pounds in one week.
