So, as many of you regular readers know, I’ve struggled with a godforsaken ten extra pounds for the last - oh, year or so?
It’s driven me absolutely nuts. Now, given, I have shown no real ability to buckle down and “diet” or “exercise” - at least not for more than a few weeks - before inevitably I have to travel, which, despite my somewhat-okay intentions, mucks up even the best-restricted-calorie-no-dessert-sweat-at-least-once-a-day plans.
So, as I said on my Twitter, on November 20th, I leave for SF, then LA, then Chicago (for Thanksgiving - and my ten year high school reunion!), then Hawaii for a week long vacation. If ever there were a moment to get serious about D&E, this would be it.
The truth is, I’ve been
halfquarterheartedly trying to shed these stupid ten pounds for so long that I’ve almost given up. But I feel like this upcoming event is offering me one last opportunity (before the holidays, at least) to get my diet act in gear, once and for all.
With all that said, I weighed myself this morning, and it’s still that same damn number: 138. UGH. I hate that number!!! Listen, I know I won’t get down to 128 by Hawaii - but I’ll be happy if I get to 132. Screw that - I’ll be happy if that number moves AT ALL.
To that end, I’ve decided the only solution here is to write what I eat, every. single. day … Here. On this website. And with that I’m going to go throw away the peanut butter I just bought from the health food store, because I don’t want to have to admit to you that I ate half of it tomorrow.
The other issue I have is … I actually don’t eat THAT much. I think? Hmm. I think I may have severely messed up my metabolism, which is another issue. How do you get that working again?? My friend Tim Ferriss recommended I have two eggs every morning, to get my protein up (as I don’t eat meat), so I’ll be trying that (and a few of his other recs, too).
If anyone else has suggestions, I’m game!! Frankly, it can’t hurt, at this point. I have to wear a bikini in three weeks, and I’d love to look the way I did two years ago …
Although, frankly, part of me thinks this whole thing is really stupid, anyway. Who cares about an extra ten pounds in the scheme of things?? It’s so irrelevant. And almost embarrassing when people have real medical issues.
