And what a day it's been.
Yesterday, I was sitting around and got to see Rachael Ray show. The one with the Carb Lovers Diet book.
I did some checking, and it seems that it's not as much a diet as it is a re-programming.
I called the book store here, and found out there was one lonely copy in stock. So I dug up the $30 Canadian and got it this afternoon.
I spent a few hours reading the first few chapters of it, out loud to my mom. Why? Because, I was not the only one who was sitting there watching the show yesterday. My mom and sister were too.
We're all major bread/pasta/potato people.
This book is going to get a hefty workout I'll tell you that much.
It will be interesting seeing how well I can get this to fit my vegetarian lifestyle; and it will be a challenge to get mom to eat anything in the fruit/vegetable category. But I've already spotted a few items that I can add to my food intake that I normally do not eat (like orange juice. Love oranges but never drink juice) and walnuts. (high in Omega 3s it would seem. Did you know that? I did not know that)
I think the hardest part for me is going to be the food diary. I journal about everything else in life, in both blog form and handwritten journal; but I've tried keeping a food diary before and after two days gave up.
My weight loss goal is 2 dress sizes. I had bought a few little black dresses few years ago right before my car accident, and I never had a chance to wear them. Since my car accident I've gained 30 pounds that I can not seem to loose because I can no longer work out. (I used to work out 4 times a week)
So the goal, to loose enough to fit into my little black dresses that I've had hanging around for 4 and a half years.
