Laziness

Lately I've been really lazy, but today I woke up and was full of energy. I got up and made myself a bowl of oatmeal (thank you so much HeatherMB for the tip, mines not as low cal as yours but it's a start) which I've discovered that I love. I thought it was going to be like crunchy oats in warm water, but it was nice and soft and mushy which I loved. I put a little bit of cinnamon and brown sugar on it, I know I know, adding sugar to things is just stupid. I want to get a brown sugar like artificial sweetener so that's on my to do list. If anyone knows any good ones that aren't too bad for you let me know :)

So I've been cutting up veggies constantly for my dad. He's not on his diet yet, he says he won't until after we go to the buffet, which might be never because there's never a time when my whole family is off work. I've been trying to get him to eat more fruits and veggies and stop eating chips. So far it's going okay. My mom is really happy that I'm doing this because every time that she mentions his weight to him he gets extremely defensive and thinks that she wants a divorce. He's just a tad oversensitive about it. I'm really glad that he's starting to eat a bit better, but at the same time I feel bad. Is it fair for me to look down on him for his weight when I'm hardly better. I'm no where near as heavy as he is, but still, I'm not perfect. Time to get my butt in gear.

My goal for the next week is to eat 1000 calories a day or less. I figure that way I can eat less if I'm not hungry, but if I do get up to 1000 I don't feel terrible and then give up. I need to stick with it for at least a week and ten maybe I can try something a bit more difficult.

I'm off to clean since I'm so full of energy today! Hi to all the new followers Ally, OceanicMelody73, Zasha, Gun_Metal_Barbie, Aurora Ate, Jinx ANA UnRiddled, and Alice, thanks for following.

Love you all and hope you're all having a lovely thursday,

  1. Oatmeal is soo good! I have a bowl of it every morning. I usually make the 100 calorie packets with cinnamon and raisins and sweeten it with truvia. One good thing I've tried is adding some sugar-free maple syrup. It's really good too.

    Thats good about your dad trying to eat better. I'm trying to get my mom to eat better but it hasn't been working so far.

    Good luck with your goals this week, I'm sure you can do it (:
