Ok, it's been an amazingly long time since I last updated. This is due to numerous reasons and none of them good. However, I'll be trying to update more often from now on.

Some things that I have decided recently about diet and eating right I'm going to be starting tomorrow.

1. Portion control: I'm going to try to get a LOT better at this. I may be eating things that are good for me and not incredibly high in fat, sodium, calories, but there is no reason I should be eating 2-3 helpings.

2. Drinks: From now on, I hope, I will only be drinking water on weekdays (not including milk for cereal), and the occasional Diet Soda or Alcohol on the weekends ONLY.

3A. Food: I will avoid sweets during the weekdays pretty much at all costs. Saturday and Sunday are the only days I'll have sweet things.

3B. Food: I will be trying to eat more vegetarian meals.

4. Caution. Though I give my self allowances on the weekends, I have to be careful not to over do it. One or two sodas will not turn into six or seven one day and six or seven the next. One candy bar/bowl of ice cream will not turn into two King-Sized candy bars and/or one MASSIVE bowl of ice cream.

5. Vitamins. This one is some what more difficult because it's a small item and I frequently forget to take them. I'm not adverse to taking them, I just need to be smart and actually remember to take them. (Tips would be awesome for this).

I figure if I work on these points and exercise with weights at least three days a week I should lose weight slowly enough and healthy enough so as not to have extra skin by the time I'm near/at/past my goal for weight loss.

As a side note, I have still lost weight even though I haven't been updating. But very very slowly due to slacking off in a major way. However, one good thing is that I'm still losing weight and I'm most definitely getting stronger.

Hopefully, I'll remember to do these things and remember to update more often.

  1. LUKE!!! I'm soooo glad you're back to blogging!! I missed reading this. A tip for remembering to take vitamins: it helps if you get into a routine (i.e. taking them right after breakfast--that's what I do!!).

    I hope everything else is going well for you. Tell Dana and Burke I say hi!!
