Hey there, kiddies, and welcome to 2011! So did you make a New Year's Resolution? I never, ever have. This year, however, I have started to diet. Yes, die with a T, as Garfield says. The truth is, I really am at an unhealthy weight and I've begun to feel it. Shortness of breath, borderline high blood pressure, all that badness. So the diet has begun.
Actually, my husband and I struck up an agreement. He has used chewing tobacco since he was 13. He wants to quit but it's a difficult thing to quit nicotine. I know that I need to lose weight and it will make me feel better. So the agreement is that hubs quits the tobacco and I lose weight. We are accountable to each other and that makes it easier for both of us.
Sooo, I'm on a diet. I actually started it New Year's Eve, but it was totally destroyed by the bottle of champagne that I drank (totally worth it!). Now the plan is healthier eating, counting the points, avoidance of simple carbohydrates and more meat, fruit, and veg. For three days, it's been going well; we had Swiss Steak tonight, pita chips are in the cupboard along with lots of healthy nuts and twigs, and the good thing is that I actually like everything that we are eating. I don't intend for this to become a diet blog, but I may keep you updated every once and a while as to how the agreement is going.
Oh, and I'm also getting out of the holiday rut and back into life as we know it. Laundry is getting done, cooking is happening, and look, I wrote a blog post! I've been actively posting to my Tumblr blog, so if you need another thing to add to your web cruising, check it out!
So how about you? Resolutions or not? Getting back to the old ho hum? Please do share!
