Anyone who knows me knows that I am a documentary fanatic. I love anything that has to do with food period. I also tend to be a hypochondriac, so the simplest sign of an ailment sends me into a frenzy that always ends with me thinking that I am dying.
I recently watched the documentary Fed Up because I have been wondering why is it that I just can’t lose any weight. I eat minimal carbohydrates for crying out loud. If I do eat rice it’s about two tablespoons. I don’t even eat pasta because I quite frankly don’t like it.(Vince and Nathan are a completely different story). So why can’t I shed these awful pounds that make me want to run into a corner and hide. Underneath all this stored fat is a shapely figure that is dying to be shine.
Don’t get me wrong however, I am a glutton, I like to eat. I also remain a couch potato. I have tried doing Cize, Insanity Max 30, Insanity, T25 and P90X and failed each and every one. I don’t ever have the drive to push through and no support system. Although one’s four year old child telling them that “you so squishy, mommy you fat,” should be a wake up call. 😦
I have, however, vowed to try something new that I think is going to kill me figuratively of course. I have decided to forego sugar for a month. My sugar intake in my opinion is minimal but I do enjoy the thai chilli sauce, and I eat baked bbq chicken 3 days out of the week(don’t judge me please). I eat salad with salad dressings and I like tomato sauce and will have the occasional cookie. I have a sensitive tummy so I do drink ginger ales once in awhile.
Tomorrow begins my foray I will try to detail my ups and my downs as my body decides I am a horrible person to deny it what it so craves. In the meantime look at my last long island ice tea as I also quite alcohol. However, that’s a story for another time.
P.S. If anyone even reads this, and have attempted this diet please share tour experiences as well as tell me what the heck can I eat. It seems like I will be going into starvation mode.
