So this whole ‘I’m on a diet’ thing is getting old real fast. It’s one thing when you’re just starting out and are motivated and all that, but 3 months down the line and I swear I’ll scream if I see another salad let alone have to eat it! I don’t care what the health gurus, science or common sense says: eating raw veggies for lunch every single day is not normal behaviour.
I have a theory: whoever comes up with these so-called diet plans must be insane. I mean, come on people! What normal person is going to think that its ok to eat nothing but apples and watermelon for 3 days or eat breakfast cereal for dinner? How is this a normal expectation to have of people who are obviously fond of junk food?
I’ve never really been a ‘following a diet plan’ sort of person, partly because I’ve never really needed it and partly because I’m too fond of food to willingly forgo it. After I had my baby though, I realized that there was nothing to do but diet if I ever hoped to go back to a normal weight. After all, the only other alternative is exercise and who has time for that with a screaming baby demanding your attention 24/7? Though to be fair, I did at least attempt to start an exercise routine, ANY exercise routine. I even downloaded this app which offered 7 min workouts (that shows commitment, right?). I figured what the hell, I can take at least 7 mins out of the entire day to exercise, right?
Apparently I’m lazier than I gave myself credit for. So not only did I not even open the app since the day I downloaded it, the thing now keeps sending me alerts that go off like an alarm and state ‘Got 7 mins?’ in a bid to guilt me into exercising. Did it work? Well, let’s just say I’ve contemplated deleting the app instead of opening it long enough to figure out if that darn alarm can be turned off.
Oh well, if dieting won’t work, and exercise is apparently my kryptonite, there is always plan B:
