Inching My Way Closer to South Beach!

Posted on: July 13, 2010

Today was INSANE. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this but I’m working as a Personal Care Attendant for the State of Vermont which means I work for families who need help with their mentally ill children. I’m also a youthworker/companion for Casey Family Services here in Vermont. So far I love my job but today was just crazy. Not because of the nature of my job–just because it was one of those days. I don’t have to bore you all with the details but I’m thinking that it’s going to be way harder than expected going on this diet. Previously I’ve been excited thinking about how well I’m going to eat and how happy I’m going to be but today it hit me that after a tiring work day I’m not going to want to spend my time cooking the perfect meal for dinner and the next day’s breakfast and lunch. I’m probably going to have to start planning my meals for the week out on Sundays if I’m really serious about this. I have the day off tomorrow so I’m thinking about starting my diet tomorrow and doing all the necessary prepping.

I went to the library today and checked out the South Beach Diet book to refresh myself on the principles as well as the South Beach Diet Cookbook. Step one is knowing what I have to do! I plan on reading/skimming enough tonight to make a decision whether starting tomorrow will work or not. I’ll keep you all posted!
