I decided that I can deny it no longer…after my last diet, I went right back to gaining weight. Soooo….I’m back to dieting. I can’t help but to wonder how the extra weight adds to my injuries by adding extra stress to my poor little tendons.
To succeed, I have some new weapons by my side:
- A fancy new kitchen scale. My old one kind of barely functioned…it wasn’t digital, and I often doubted it’s accuracy. Plus, it could only weigh up to a pound at a time, so I had to individually put each food item onto it to measure out my dinner each night. With this fancy new one, I can put the whole plate on the scale, tare it, add the meat, tare it, add the veggies, tare it. It’s pretty much way more convenient and exciting!
- Hummus. I get so bored with too many veggies, but the hummus keeps me excited about them…for now.
- Sugar Free Jello. I know, I know, many people are scared of fake sugar. Guess what? I’m a little afraid, but I’m okay with occasionally indulging in a little aspertame every once in awhile.
Of course, I’ve got my trusty old diet weapons along as well: the MyFitnessPal app, my homemade greek yogurt, and of course, liquid egg whites. I’m ready to do this thing!
What’s your best diet weapon?
