Eat, Drink & Be Merry - For Tomorrow We Die-et

So I went to a wedding this evening that took place on a baseball field, complete with peanut vendor (from Dodger Stadium) At the reception we had popcorn, salted soft pretzels, nuts, beer, wine, hot dogs, salad, tri-tip, gelato/ice cream, champagne & traditional cake - and that's just what I had! I enjoyed it all because tomorrow morning, come hell or high water (or just an over whelming craving to eat some hidden chocolate eggs) I am going to start the process of losing weight!

That's right folks, between work deadlines and internet downs I will also start a diet to finally shed those unwanted post-baby pounds! I don't have much to lose, just enough to find my waste again. It's the disciple of doing it and the act of maintaining the healthy eating again that I need to cram into my little brain.

And if that isn't enough for me in one week, I will also be getting my locks chopped off! Yeah!!

Finally, I will be discarding half my closet, as I have not worn over half the clothes in there for 3 years. The word is, if you don't wear something for a year, get rid of it. But as usual, I can't let go of things.

I hope I like the new hair cut (the big event is Tuesday). I'll let you know.

As for the diet. I'm prepared and ready to go. And *gasp* we're doing the Atkins diet again. We had great success with it the first time and I lost 30 pounds. That was 4 years ago. But I've been undisciplined and anything that comes into the house that I don't let Harrison eat, well... the G.I.D. and I eat it.

After all, we have to protect our child from junk food, right?

So, with the junk food, and increased pasta intake and processed foods lately (for the convenience) our weight has gone up and our healthy eating habits have gone down. Atkins helps us kick start back into healthy eating and whole foods again, as well as burning off that unwanted fat layer.

I've got to stop the sugar craving COLD TURKEY!

Good luck. I love pasta and bread too much to give it up. And I can't wait to see the new do.

STOP the sugar? Just typing those words made me shudder! Good luck.

That is a lot of change in a short period of time! I've been eating healthier and working out this past week too. I hope I can keep it up.
Good luck to us both!

Dang girl, that's a lot of changes coming your way all at once! I wish you the best of luck...and send some inspiration my way, okay? I really need to do the same thing. How's the new 'do? BTW, that sounds like one cool wedding.
