The Plan Keeps Coming Up Again
November 4, 2009 § 4 Comments
I have a plan.
For the entire month of November I am going on a diet, which I have made up myself. Because I don’t care to follow diets made up by random people I don’t know. This one’s for me.
I tried it out for a week last month, and it was kinda hard, even for a week. But I’m going to stick to it. So far (all three days) it’s been going all right.
Here’s what I came up with.
Meal 1: Cereal
Meal 2: Yogurt
Meal 3: Soup, Sandwich or Salad
Meal 4: Fruit
Meal 5: Whatever (within reason)
Rules: 1) Meals can be in any order 2) I reserve the right to substitute lunch with leftovers so I don’t waste food (because food wasting is bad!) 3) It is required to drink at least 5 glasses of water per day 4) Diet soda and ice tea are allowed
That’s all I can come up with right now. I’ll let you know how it goes at the end of the month.
I’d also like to start some sort of exercise routine but it’s hard trying to decide what will fit into my schedule in the long run. The only exercise I really enjoy enough to stick with is yoga. Right now, I could start going back to my gym for yoga class, but the time is so inconvenient. The gym is on my way home from work which would be great if the class didn’t start at 7:30 pm. I’m not staying at work that late. That’s just craziness. 4 pm and I’m outta there. And when I get home… it’s just so hard SO HARD to go out again. And then there’s Matt. Now that I’m home during the week, I get to spend more time with him. I don’t want to waste that time by driving half an hour just to go to yoga class and back.
I know, I know. Excuses excuses. I have a couple other options. A new yoga class just started up at my apartment complex. I could try that for now, at least until next semester at school starts and my schedule changes again. There’s also $5 yoga at a studio right down the street from my office. The time’s a bit inconvenient for that too, but I might try to work something out.
In other news, I’m participating in the month long writingfest otherwise known as NaNoWriMo. And I haven’t written one speck of a novel yet. Ok, that’s a lie. I wrote a little bit last month because I was inspired for some reason. But it seems that inspiration went out the window with the end of October, or the end of the field season in which I spent many hours on the road dreaming up what I’d write in aforementioned novel. Thoughts, however, are no good unless I write them down. I really need to kick it up a notch.
Not tonight, though. Tonight I have to eat dinner and watch Dancing With the Stars with one very good-lookin guy.
