Well, I guess I'm supposed to be excited, but not so much. I'm sitting here thinking about how tasty a Kit Kat bar would be right now and about how satisfying a (pack of ) Grandma brand vanilla creme sandwich cookies would be. I have something of a sweet tooth. I LOVE sweets, so this is going to be the hardest thing for me. I don't care about sodas, alcohol and juices (I don't drink either; only water, kicking that habit last month was actually easy). Fatty comfort foods aren't really a problem either, but candies and sweets . . . . sigh . . . So as a result, I'm going through withdrawal. I know that I can have sweets occasionally and it won't be an issue. I plan on getting some Dove dark chocolate bars, since they are apparently a "good" chocolate. I also plan to get a boatload of healthy snacking foods (like dried apricots and the little tangerines, which are like candy to me - yummy). I got my grocery list from Women's Health Magazine. So tomorrow, I'll be going shopping.
So when you start anything, you should want to have some kind of goal/expectation. Where do I want to end up?
LOL, not likely. It's not even really where I want to go. I would like to just be flat in the tummy area with toned armed arms (like Michelle Obama) with over all great health. More so like this . . . .
I know this is not an over night thing. I don't have a weight goal, I just know what I hope to look like. Hopefully I'm happy in the end. For right now, I'm going to make myself a snack of peanut butter on some raisin toast. Yum!
