dboothsummers Posted April 17, 2012 Share Posted April 17, 2012 So I have a log over in that forum, but I haven't written down any specific goals just yet. Here goes: 1. Cut the diet sodas. This is a mandatory part of whole30 but it's something I want to do permanently. Unsweetened tea and coffee are okay for me (I usually have half a cup of coffee and a full cup of tea a day), I'm not terribly concerned with caffeine, but diet soda is expensive weird addictive chemical poison bad for a sugar hound After a little over a week, I feel it's somethign I can get used to. And I was NOT an occasional diet coke drinker. It was my lifeblood. 2. Get used to real food I know that seems like a silly goal, but from where I started, it's huge. A week ago, I would have rather had ANYTHING but steak or chicken for supper. Last night I devoured 3 chicken thighs like nobody's business. Now to cook my own fish without frying it in cornmeal like dear old Dad (who also catches the fish) taught me so well. 3. Stop grazing; eat when I'm hungry I'm a snacker. Snack between B&L, snack between L&D, snack after D, and most of the time I'm so full by dinner I'll only eat the fun part (aka give the meat to my husband, eat some of the salad and diet ice cream for dessert). I'll allow myself something if I'm actually hungry, but when it's just habit I need to cut the crap. Yesterday I had no snacks! 4. Lose some weight By changing my relationship with food. I'm not fat because I eat too much, I'm fat because I eat too much because I have a messed up relationship with the wrong kinds of food. 5. Stop using food as a reward So far I've rewarded myself with a couple of cheap clothing treats. Yoga time and a manicure are up next when I make it through week 2.
