My birthday! And some thoughts on dieting…

Well, today is my birthday! 36 years old! I don’t really feel any different than I did in my twenties! I will not be following any kind of diet today as I already had my free birthday sub from Firehouse and tonight will be going out for yummy birthday seafood dinner.

I have stopped the Military Diet altogether. On further reflection of doing it for two days, it seems like just another crash diet. I was starving and on top of that had headaches all day, the shakes and was absolutely exhausted from lack of calories. I’m sorry, that is too much to put up with, even for three days out of the week.

Upon further thought on the matter, I have lost 5 pounds in the past month when I weighed in on Tuesday. I am obviously on the right track. If I cut out the fast food completely and eat more fresh veggies and lean meats, along with the new exercise program I plan on ordering next month, I should be able to loose weight the right way, no problem. The best part is, it will be a lifestyle change. Not some diet I will go off of and then gain all my weight back.

So, for now, I’m off to enjoy my birthday!

Have a happy, hectic, handmade day!
