The Plan Seems to be Working
i feel smaller. i hope on monday that the scale reflects the feeling. i've really been watching my calories and sugars. i count all the calories that i'm taking in. i'm trying to come in around 1800 a day. i've been doing good. the other day i went to almost 2000 because derek brought me a big 'n tasty from mcdonalds. i couldn't just let it sit there and make him feel bad, so i ate it. i made up for it yesterday by eating mostly vegetables. of course, by having veggies all day i could have cookies later. mmmmm, oreo fudgees. years ago i was watching a documentary about richard simmons and they were talking to some of his friends and clients. one guy said that richard taught him that he could still eat all his favorite foods, just not all at once. i still remember that. i've kinda been using that idea. i like cookies and cake, so i just need to plan my days better to accomodate those. i've also been exercising more. it's nice to have the elliptical machine at home so that i can go on at any time of day. it's so easy when i don't have to plan too far ahead. i just need to be sure that i have a half an hour to be on it. that's pretty easy to do. so every monday i will weigh myself at my mom's house. i don't have a scale, but she does and i go there every monday. it works out nice. sunday will be my day off. i won't exercise or count calories. that doesn't mean that i can go overboard, but it will be a day of rest.
