2 Months ago this project started. From the beginning I’ve had good weeks and bad weeks. I started out at about 219 and now, after 2 months WITH the Olympics (where I completely pigged out for over 2 weeks and did NO exercise) I am happy to say that as of Friday, I am down 204 (or is it 205…) Either way it’s pretty fucking good right?
So this week was my first FULL week of meal plan, and this was also the first time I realized how addicted I was to sugar, and junk food. The interesting thing is that sometimes my cravings are like worse than any other craving I’ve ever had? Now why is that…is it because I have just been programmed throughout my entire life by fast food marketing? Has my grandmother’s hearty made with love homemade food taken over my whole life so much that I can’t go without for even a week? The answer is…yes. Fast Food and bad food while yes it may be really tasty, and you feel extremely satisfied after eating it (it is called comfort food for a reason), it has become almost as big as an addiction as my last one, except this one is socially OK.
I have been watching Jamie Oliver’s food revolution, and it is the most surprising thing I have seen in a long time. Have you seen it? If you haven’t you really need to check it out. The stupid thing is they put it on Friday night…television graveyard. I bet it’s because if people actually start watching it they will start to think about everything they are putting in their bodies.
OK, so I have my first CHANGE photos. I’m still a LONG ways away from where I finally want to be, but it’s definitely on the right track. Now I’m going to my parent’s house to enjoy an Easter lunch, and maybe a couple mini eggs or 50.
