On the days I work, I don’t usually get a good picture of any food, because it’s usually dark by the time I have supper ready, and my camera requires sunlight for tolerable pictures. So tonight I thought I’d share what I learned from my first day of dieting. (If you missed the memo, I’m using My Fitness Pal and am attempting to go from 128 pounds to 118. Even if I don’t necessarily get that low, I want to exercise more and lose my belly fat and gain muscle.) Although I don’t have much on my profile on My Fitness Pal, you’re welcome to check it out.
Things I learned:
1. Dieting is hard.
2. Keeping track of what you eat is really not that hard. (What’s hard is restraining yourself from eating things you shouldn’t.)
3. Dieting is hard.
4. I really, really like food.
5. Did I mention that dieting is hard?
Most memorable part of today: Carefully measuring out 1/5 cup of milk, because I really wanted some and that was all the calories I had left (unless I were to go out running again!).
On the agenda tomorrow? Exercise a lot more in the morning so I “earn” more calories to consume throughout the day. 🙂
Do any of you have dieting tips?
