Last night I was naughty. I ate a good dinner, but the wife made oatmeal cookies with no raisins. Mmmmm. I had 2. I also ate 3 mini reces. My bane.
I did start to realize how important it is to eat. A big mistake I have made in the past thus failing at dieting was not eating enough. I would eat a couple eggs for breakfast, a grilled chicken salad for lunch, then some fish or meat and vegs for dinner. Total probably about 1800 calories. My body requires about 2500 a day to feel right including a combination of carbs and proteins. Eating a drasticaly reduced amount of calories, with almost no carbs was my plan, but I always found myself waking up in the middle of the night and scarfing bread or stuff.
The trick that I need to master is giving my body the carbs it wants but in a controlled way, and they need to be "good" carbs. Whole wheats and fruits.
Ok I am off now to do my 30 minute walk. I'm going to bring my camera and maybe snap some pictures to make it a bit more fun!
