My Diet Watch II

A week after my desperate move to 'diet' myself...

Not really giving me a very significant change, but one pound is not bad at all.haha! Oh yeah, only a mark on the weighing scale, but that won't stop me. Another week more and we'll see.

I have been religiously following my 'riceless' diet, stuffing my tummy with bread, wheat and sometimes just white, and my favorite orange sweet potato. I still eat the usual meal, just omitting the sinful rice in my plate.

I have tried to do a little walking just around the village last week, with my 3-year old chit-chatting with me. Been thinking if I can try jogging. Maybe after I get my sneakers off somewhere, still trying to figure out where I last placed it.

So for the record, one week - one pound lost.. Hope to maybe get two or three more off next week.. :)

My Diet Watch

I have not been able to post new ideas lately. One main reason is that my over tendency to eat a lot whenever I'm in the kitchen cooking.haha! But that won't stop me from cooking meals, so I will still be posting interesting menus from time to time. :)
I'm forced to try to start a 'simple diet', after realizing that I need to add extra effort when pulling up some of my favorite pair of jeans. Whew! Not easy.
So I officially started my Diet Watch this morning. I'm thinking of doing it 'rice-less', so here we go...
Breakfast was a cup of sweetened oatmeal, no milk. I could have tried unsweetened, but it was just blunt. A teaspoon won't hurt, I suppose. And 2 small pieces of boiled sweet potato. Oh yeah, camote. And that's my favorite 'orange' camote, mind you. I have searched almost everywhere, and luckily saw it at SM, so I bought almost 2 kilos. Good enough for 3 or 4 days of my fasting. Love it! I grabbed 2 more on the way out and had it for lunch, with 'ginataang langka' on the side. Yum! I almost survived till the afternoon, but took crackers and a cup of tea latte for merienda. Was that sinful enough? Oh, I don't wanna get ulcer instead, so I think that's just okay. :) Dinner earlier was still with my orange potato and a bowl of Vietnamese noodles. And 1 small slice of Spam. Sorry, saw a few slices left from my 3-year old's breakfast. :)

So that's for my first day, hope it will help my 130-lb weight to go down a bit. Even just one mark. We'll see... Ciao!
