Diet, Day 4

According to The Daily Plate, if I want to lose weight in a safe/sane way, I should take in 1881 net calories a day, or less. So far, so good. I've stuck to it, and it hasn't been too painful.

I have decided to only stick to the diet Monday through Friday (or 5 days/week). I am trying to set myself up for success, not failure, and so I'm building in some "cheat" time.

Next week I return to the gym for the first time in two months. (I exaggerate -- I have exercised a handful of times since November.) I not only hate how fat I am, I hate how easily I become winded. So here's to a fitter 2011.

I stole it from Endomental ... who stole it from Kwizgiver. If you steal it from me, let me know.
