Mid-month update

It's been half a month since I started my new regimen, and everything seems to be going smoothly, except I am constantly hungry, which is normal with a diet. I have also begun my T-Tapp "Bootcamp" (exercise program), and it is a LOT harder than I thought. Every muscle is used and man do I feel it afterwards...but I remind myself that this is a good soreness.

I have been munching on Clementines as snacks, but the ones we recently picked up are gross and I have to make another run to a different store where the produce is better. I hate the smell of peanuts and don't really like to eat them as much as I used to, but they have been a great snack for me as well. As for dinner, that's when I have the most of my carbohydrates. Like I said, I am not militant about my diet, but I am trying to be very mindful of what I eat. For example, last night I made a spaghetti and experimented with crushed tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. It came out good but next time I will be following Mommy Chef's Pasta Bruschetta recipe. It looks delicious!

My child is even hunkering down and eating salads without causing a stir. This is great!

Oranges and any type of fruit is done in moderation, usually I try to have a protein based snack. Bananas are good too but they don't last long in my house! My daughter is a monkey (Monkay?).

I find that if I'm mindful, I succeed. You have to give yourself a little wiggle room to cheat, but even without that it sounds like you are doing great!

You are doing great J!! I'm a sucker for those Clementines...I have to stop myself or I'll sit there and eat half a box. :-)

Thanks everyone! I feel I am doing good and as long as I keep a positive attitude I know I can do this.

And atticus, I LOVE those Clementines...man they are GOOD! And so easy to peel too. Unfortunately though, the price will go up because of that freeze California went through recently.
