Day 2: Asking the Tough Questions.

The toughest part about being so conscious of what I eat, is that I'm no longer letting myself eat out of boredom. When I walk into the kitchen, looking for something to snack on, I am now asking myself - "are you really hungry?". More often than not, the answer is "no". Damnit that makes me cranky. I can't shop for crap I don't need, I can't eat crap I don't need, what's a girl to do? Just kidding, but seriously - it's hard to ask yourself the tough questions. Another thing I do is eat to make up for lack of sleep. As if somehow the fuel of food will help me feel energized, which it doesn't. Coffee, on the otherhand, that's good stuff.

Yesterday was a pretty good WLC day. Still did not get out for a walk, but I once again skipped the carbs at dinner. I know that for me, skipping carbs in the evening is a huge component to weight loss. The other thing I did was make a big jug of decaf ice tea for myself. Water seems unappealing to me these days and I need to do a better job of staying hydrated, what with the breastfeeding and all.

In other positive news, I just checked my Visa card balance, and I am on track to have cut my monthly expenditures by 50%. Since last month included the not-so-nice surprise of new tires for my car, I am hoping I can cut my bill by 50% again this coming month. That would get me to 25% of my original spend - not bad, eh?
