Eating right is so hard sometimes. I really have no real problem with it when I'm at home, but when I'm eating out or am just out on the town, having a fun day, I am always tempted to go get Baskin Robbins at least. When eating out, I always want a Coke. So, here is what I want to do...I did it a few weeks ago, and have done it several times in my life very successfully...and it really is very effective:
1. no soda
2. no sweets (includes added sugar, which I rarely ever do, but sometimes tempted to add to my bran flakes in the mornings)
3. lots of water
So, I plan to do this at least until Friday. I know that isn't too long at all, but I'm going to Louisiana for Easter weekend and it wouldn't really be realistic for me to say that I won't eat some of Granny's desserts. Um, hello...please. I'll re-evaluate next week and fast from the soda and sweets some more maybe. We'll see.
I don't plan on making this my lifestyle or anything. The "no soda" thing and the "lots of water" thing...completely do-able. But, I have to have my ice cream occasionally..."occasionally" being the key word. A complete fast is always a great idea for a while though and really gets you jump-started into less of something as a lifestyle for sure.
So, friends, hold me to it.
