*gasp* No, not the dreaded D-word! "Diet" is Die with a T!
Yes. It has been decided. I'm cutting down on the chocolate and sweets (not like there's any around here anyway), and trying to cut down on fast food, although that part will be hard because unless I bring something that doesn't need to be put in a fridge to work...yeah. Then I gotta eat McD's at work on break. But that is only (*scoff*) four days a week now, and I'll try to eat the healthier items, like salads and grilled chicken. (I'll miss you, cheeseburgers!) And no soda, unless it's diet! Which will also be hard because I get free soda at work, and the only diet kind we have is Diet Coke. Damn our non-variety!
And OF COURSE I'll be making an exception for Halloween. DUH. How can you not? I mean, come on, it's fricken Halloween!
You ask why I am doing this? What has pushed me over the edge? It's simple really. Sorta.
One - I've been doing my workout for Fitness Center and...well...I really like it. I can tell a difference, and I'm sure there would be more difference if I would go on a diet as well. I'm becoming happier with how I look.
Two - Going to my cousin's wedding in a couple months, and yesterday I realized.....I need to get a new dress for it. AH! I HATE, no, LOATHE, dress shopping. Especially with my mother. I can never find anything I like. Long story short, I want to look good considering I haven't seen my family in a year or more.
Three - Just tried on my costume from last year that I was considering wearing again, and decided it looks horrible. But it looked so cute last year! Which is really fricken weird because I weigh less and am more fit now than I was last year when I bought it. Huh, go figure. So now I have to go costume shopping for this year. And dammit, I want to look good! I want to look sexy! (For two reasons...heh heh, certain someones know who I'm talking about.)
Four - checked myself out in a full-length mirror earlier while trying on said Halloween costume and decided that bulge around my middle looks absolutely horrible. Not that it didn't before...
Still, I know I'm not that overweight, and on some good days I think I look spectacular. But my goal is to lose (thebulge) twenty pounds. Let's hope I find the motivation and willpower to keep at it!
In other news, today I bought Halloween decorations and a big cookie. Irony much?
