So, I’ve been trying to improve my diet. I’m not trying to be perfect, or even amazing, just better than before. I’m eating more fruits, more vegetables, and less processed food, but I’m still finding it very hard.
Sometimes, it is the idea more than anything else. The feeling that I’m stopping myself from having something that I want. Other times, it is just that I’m bored, and it is really easy to eat and watch a movie, or eat and work on research but I know that if I’m eating at my computer, it has to be something reasonably healthy as I don’t keep very good track of how much I’ve ate otherwise.
I’m sometimes amazed at how difficult I find it to eat proper portions of good quality, healthy food, and drinking the proper things is even harder.
My juicer has arrived at Purolator, and this Friday, I’m hoping to make the journey across the city to pick it up. I’m hoping my scale will be at their depot as well when I arrive, so I can pick it all up.
This whole this is made more difficult by the fact that I don’t like doing dishes, and thus don’t own any, and as such, don’t cook things that would require dishes. I sometimes think I should find an apartment where I have a dishwasher so that I’m more inclined to cook, as I really enjoy cooking (though not as much for one person as for a group).
Even though, I haven’t officially begun yet, I’m hopeful that the small changes I’ve been making will start me down the right path, and losing the first recorded pound, while difficult, won’t be too hard. I’m also hoping that I can reach my goal each week, which will spur me on to continue and support from family and friends will push me forward on weeks where, for one reason or another, I don’t make my goal.
So much to learn about managing my diet, exercise, and thus my weight.
