Every Day is Yesterday
I keep starting my diet "tomorrow" and tomorrow never comes, so I guess most days are "yesterday." I've tried to just change habits but it's getting harder all the time.
My office is around the corner from vending machines, which is a huge challenge and money waster. When I take snacks to work I wind up eating too much at my desk
Part of the challenge is that I'm reeeally not a morning person, and having sleep apnea doesn't help. I can come home for lunch, but sometimes I don't have time to do that and I wind up eating fast food. Naturally, if I'm having a crazy day I don't get the salad at Wendys or Burger King! I get something I can eat while I'm driving back to work.
I do have a few good habits, though. When I buy frozen meals I have a few rules that the meal has to meet: No dessert, has to weigh at least 12 ounces, have over 20 grams of protein, and under 400 calories. Meals that make the cut are usually pretty satisfying.
I have a trip coming up that will include a long plane ride, so my goal is to be a little more comfortable on the plane. That's about 3 months away, and my goal is to get from now (230 lbs) to then (200 lbs or less).
Anywho, *waves* I've been using the food, weight & exercise features here off and on for a few years. I didn't realize there was a forum too until today.
