|I am pretty sure I'm, like, five weeks away from achieving Ferrigno-ness|
As per the calendar thing - its a terrific idea! I think I know where I'll put it, and everything. However, I will likely wait until August when the 16 month calendars debut. Who knows? They might be out now.
And, I already eat some cottage cheese. Its a delicious treat. But... how about a Wagon Wheel?
Mostly, I swapped out my other snack foods for carrot sticks. That seems to have helped. Jason knows I will power through a bag of apples, but they're not always in season (especially Red Delicious), etc... And I get really grossed out by oranges that are out of season. Also: trying not to eat chips at Tex-Mex places (or skipping Tex-Mex). Stuff like that. And I've been trying to avoid guacamole, which I think is pretty much awesome, so that hurts.
But just not having junk around the house is helpful. Of course, after our 4th of July party SOMEBODY (and I'm not naming names) left some delicious fudge at our house that calls to me in the wee hours.
Oh, and diet soda. The problem is: diet soda is like carbonated environmental catastrophe, and studies keep coming out saying that its going to make you fat, anyway (which, honestly I totally do not comprehend) so I try to drink those canned, carbonated waters from HEB (ie: generic La Croix). Secret hint: of everything at my 4th of July fiesta, that stuff went fastest. Who knew?
Things I need to do better in the short-term:
- If I know I'll be out in the evening, work out in the morning. That's how I wind up missing days.
- Get that calendar system going.
- Try not to abuse the "you get to eat whatever you feel like 1 day per week" rule.
- Probably put down the computer now and go work out.
