Day 2 of the lovely so called ‘diet’

11 Jul

Hi all

Welcome to my daily update 🙂

Hmmmm well this morning, I woke up and the 1st thing I thought about was biscuits. Ummm, seriously? what’s wrong with my head. BISCUITS 1st thing in the morning?!! Sadly though, this is what I have been used to eating every day so guess my body had a little craving… but I did NOT give in to it B-)

Instead I ate a banana. What a difference. However, this banana was all newly yellow from green so it was too hard 😦 (get your dirty minds out the gutter, honestly *shakes head*) I like banana’s when they’re a little brownish and softer, apparently this is when they contain more sugar so sounds about right.

Had my daily tuna sarni today for lunch with cucumber which was nice… but as I have this for all week, I can see me getting bored VERY quickly so will change it up next week.

No idea what’s for dinner tonight, when I went home at lunch I saw my mum crying from chopping up onions, along with garlic and yellow peppers so it at least looks healthy so far.

I decided that, instead of eating snacks at work if I felt a lil hungry (although today I’ve felt quite full) and to not crave sugar, I would buy diet coke after my lunch!

The unhealthiest thing you can drink I know. Fizzy drinks are terrible but I find them filling and then I don’t want sweets etc. I used to drink a glass of diet coke every day, I don’t like the taste of full fat coke even though, really, it’s better for you as diet coke is riddled with sweeteners which link to cancers! (not that full fat coke is good for you even slightly by the way)

However, a few months ago I decided, for that reason, to cut it out of my daily routine. I thought it would be really hard and that I would crave it non stop, but you know what, it was easy after a week! Now, and take the few sips I had today for example, I find it tastes vile. Really do. Don’t even know why I bought it today because I’m probably not going to drink it so it won’t really settle any sugar craving after all. And to think, this is the drink I used to have daily.

Oh don’t get me wrong, if it’s a really hot summers day, I don’t mind drinking an ice-cold diet coke with a lovely slice of lemon or lime in a pub or restaurant, but that’s probably because it’s so weakened down that it doesn’t taste as ‘sharp’ as when you get it in a new bottle.

Must say though, I still do like a Dr Pepper. Just don’t drink it hardly ever. Nope, instead I drink water and just that. I don’t like flavoured water (contains sugar) and I only like juice that’s 100% pure and not from concentrate (especially the innocent smoothies… mmm mmmm) but I don’t drink juice unless it happens to be in the house. Again, probably due to the sugar content… although these are natural sugars so not harmful.

Funnily enough, talking about fizzy drinks, I work for a magazine company and we’re doing a Dr’s related issue and got talking about foods that are meant to be good for you but have hidden nasties in them. OK, obviously diet coke is not known to be good for you, but it reminded me of a certain weight loss meeting I had last year when the leader said ‘ohhh drink as much as you like, it has no fat so you can drink it all day’ I mean… seriously? Is this meant to be good advice? I actually found it quite shocking but hey ho. Probably why I don’t go back as most of these leaders are uneducated regarding nutrition sadly. I don’t believe being told that, and eating haribo sweets isn’t ‘bad’ for you contributes to good nutritional advice :/

My editor also mentioned the test on YouTube about pouring coke onto raw pork and you see worms or maggots coming out. OH. MY.GOD. I wanted to puke. Ok so that’s really more about pork than the coke it’s self but I mean, doesn’t it just make you think… what the hell do we put into our bodies! It’s ALL about being a vegetarian. It’s just a shame I know I would never be able to become a veggie. I like the taste of certain meats too much. Also, I’m Greek. How would I ever attend family functions when 90% of their food is meat!

I probably have come way off track to what I was originally going to post today. Ha, as always, I trail off into my own little world and go off subject. But as this is more of a daily diary than just talking about losing weight, I think it’s fine 😉

By the way, I would say my mood today is quite… content. I don’t feel hungry, I don’t feel like I’m craving anything bad (apart from my initial morning thought) and I don’t think that I can’t keep this up 🙂

Tell you what, blogging is really helping me. I find it so enjoyable and therapeutic and have even been offered to do it for the website of the magazine I work for so… yay! I’ll be an actual published blogger 😀

Until tomorrow…. goodbye and Godspeed 😀

    Well done for resisting the biscuits – the longer you do it, the easier it’ll get 🙂 Congrats!
