A Little Less of ME

So, yes, I’m a terrible updater. I could use the excuse that Cam ended school this week but it’s been weeks since my last post. O.K. actually like a month. Anywho, my wife irritates me to all end when she’s too wordy so I will just say, yup, I’m a terrible updated.

I’ve been on a bit of a diet this week. My first week not working at a bakery and therefore not having access to yummy fresh baked cookies seemed like a good starting point. I didn’t factor Cam being home all day and I being starving might wear on my patience. Needless to say, I had to jump in full force. This was all sort of jump started when I went shopping for ME. Yes, ME, not in the kids section but clothes for ME.

I’m not fat, no doubt, so please don’t give me that, “you don’t need to diet”. We’re coming or actually we’re in bathing suit season and man, I used to be hot! I’m 30 now with 2 kids but come on; I should still be able to rock a bathing suit without feeling like a total heifer.

So this week it was all conscious eating, no sweets. I will admit that I broke down one day and had a BLT and orange soda. Though I will note that same night when I had a salad and water, Mary had 3 pieces of pizza, 2 beers and the rest of the previously mentioned orange soda. I think she followed this with some sort of dessert and it was after 7 p.m. Obviously she’s not joining me in getting fit adventures. And last night, I did have a beer but we had a little cook out here with some of Mary’s students and co-workers. And for someone who usually drinks 1-2 beers/night, I hadn’t had one in a week. Maybe that’s another problem I should address…oh well, another time.

But I’ve been writing down everything I eat, in a way to “hold myself accountable” and exercising like mad. Mary keeps making fun of me but when we’re at the beach this summer, I’ll be happy that I’m not the one in a t-shirt :-) *hopefully*

  1. still are hot! But I do know what you mean. I am back to writing everything down this week too. At some point though, I wonder how much of my body is what I see vs. what is real. Or how others see me. I was fat in my 20s and after my kids, it is tough to not see that same person in the mirror sometimes or to feel like, just another 5 lbs to thinner thighs, perfect ass or that dang pooch to go away!

    Are you using a tracking tool? I switch back and forth between WeightWatchers (writing down points) and Sparkpeople (free online tool calorie based).
