Eye-opening

Now that I'm actually counting calories and reading labels at the grocery store I am amazed. It does suck having to watch everything I eat, but I think that this process will be good in general. I think it is important for me to have a general clue as to how many calories are in foods. Then once I meet my goal I can maintain better. When you snack and eat in general with no mind to what you're eating, it is easy to overindulge.
I have never been a breakfast eater. I didn't want to take the time to eat. But for the past week, I've had cereal every day. I think it helps. I don't know if it is really true that it jump starts one's metabolism, but I think it does keep me from overeating at lunch. I still haven't had a coke. I can't stand regular diet coke. I might try a coke zero and see if I can tolerate it.

The new season of American Idol started tonight. Not that I really need to be watching t.v. But Chuck was on last night and I used my DVR to record it. I caught American Idol tonight but will probably have to use the DVR more. I was really tired this morning. I need to make sure I get to bed earlier I guess.

It's really nice having a clean house though. (Except my bedroom is still quite the disaster area - and Mago, I'm already at the point where I can't get around stuff in my room.) I'll try to get it cleaned this week before hell week starts next week.

Well, I'm going to tune back into American Idol, play a couple of games of boggle and call it an early night.

Boggle?

Coke Zero is way better than diet coke. Cherry coke zero is even better. But the best, most non-diet tasting diet soda is Diet Dr. Pepper. I have an unfortunate addiction to that stuff.
