Decidedly Delicious Dedication

This is the 2nd time I’ve gotten an orchid to bloom

I started restricting my calories this week, so I feel low energy. My goal is to follow my diet for three days in a row, which I can accomplish today. With how I’m feeling now, I don’t know if I’m going to be able to stick to my diet, but I’m trying. My success over the last two days means I’m more likely to accomplish three days in a row next time if I don’t get it today. Even if I do get it today, I’ve got a long future of dieting ahead of me and need to get accustomed to restricting myself. If I keep pushing to diet even after I fail, eventually something will click and I won’t feel as low energy. Cravings also go away with time. On Monday I ate the right number of calories, but still had sugary foods. Yesterday I don’t think I ate anything with added sugar, so that could be one reason I feel the way I do. I don’t feel bad, but mostly I’ll be worried I won’t have the energy required to make my food and then I’m more likely to microwave something. After that my might taste buds adjust and I’ll be more likely to eat junk food for awhile. I already did my reading, and writing this will probably require the most brain power of anything today. I have to cook my healthy breakfast instead of reaching for the cereal, because man do I want to eat some cereal right now. Cereal would be comforting, but it’d be gone in a minute. The energy I gain from cereal doesn’t last very long either. I’ve still got about 40 minutes till breakfast, lets hope I’ll remain strong when the time comes. Bit by bit I hope to improve, I know it’s tough now, but it gets easier the longer you stick with it.
