Boring Eating

So I met with Christine this morning and she diagnosed me as being a "casual dieter" and compared it to "casual dating" in that I do it when I do it, but then other times I don't. I flirt with dieting... but not all the time. For example, ordering pasta with seafood instead of with meat sauce and justifying it because clams have like ... NO CALORIES!

Alas. I know it doesn't work like that.

She suggested that for the next 10lbs I be a boring eater. To not get creative with my choices but instead have an easy routine of foods that I know are fine. This is beneficial in two ways... it's like ... only healthy food ever and also takes out the uncertainty of eating. I KNOW what I'm allowed to eat and so no guessing and no approximating.

Here is the general outline:

English Muffin Light OR Bagel Thin
2/3 cup of cottage cheese OR two slices of Jarlsberg lite OR 1 whole egg

Mid Morning
Cabot Cheese Light Square AND 100 Calorie Snack Pack
Chobani 0% Yogurt
2 Fruit

BIG Salad with Chicken or Turkey and pretty much whatever veggie toppings I want. Stay away from nuts, avocado and cheese if possible.

Zone Bar
Luna Bar
Chobani Yogurt
2 fruit

Chicken OR Fish OR Salmon OR Shrimp

Skinny Cow or WW something

That's it. Boring, right? I'm going to Hawaii in June and I'm thinking I should resolve to stick to this for the next few weeks. I gotta look good in a bathing suit right?

I'm also thinking I might try some at home yoga videos Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

  1. skip the dessert grrrrrrl

    also, the home yoga's a bit iffy if you get into the wrong poses. you might end up pulling something.

    i wouldn't think of it as BORING eating though. surely you can spice up a couple things with cinnamon or other flavorful...spices.
