Full Circle

Alright, so tonight's ridiculously sinful treat consisted of yet ANOTHER cookie sandwich from Whole Foods. Similar to the peanut butter one that I described a few nights back, this one was vanilla frosting sandwiched between two soft dark chocolate cookies. Damn. In other news, all my clothes are getting tight.

But I digress.

I was thinking today about a couple of things:

Firstly, meal planning. I really need to get on this. This weekend, hopefully. I've been wracking my brain to come up with some great, low-calorie meal ideas, and what I've decided (since I'm still breastfeeding and not really into chemicals and stuff) is that I can pretty much make anything and just eat less of it than I normally would. And, of course, if I'm loading up my plate with lots and lots of veggies then I probably can't go wrong, right? Having said that of course, I think I'll try not to use at much fat and sugar in general when I cook. There must be ways around this BESIDES stupid Pam and stupid Nutrasweet/Splenda/Saccharine etc.

Secondly, I was also thinking about how inspired I've been by other bloggers out there. There are so many motivational stories out there, women who have really taken charge of their health and lives, overcome literally years of unhealthiness and many, many, MANY pounds. It leaves me thinking: If they can do it, I can do it. And I love that. Ya gotta love the blogsphere.

I know in my heart and soul that this is it. That sounds so corny as I'm re-reading the sentence that I just typed. But really, I am SO feeling this! I KNOW I am going to be a lot healthier. I KNOW I'm going to be a lot smaller, stronger and more energetic. I KNOW my life is going to change.

By this time next year, I hope I'm inspiring someone else out there.
