Lets just say that I dislike the word “diet”. Diet seems like a fad, rather then a real fix.
My weight is out of control. Ever since I took an office job I have been packing on the pounds. For the first 14 years after graduating high school I worked in various welding shops across southeast Texas. Being on my feet for 8 – 12 hours a day, and doing hard physical labor meant that I could eat just about anything I wanted.
I no longer work in welding shops. Nor I can I eat anything I want.
I guess I got spoiled to eating whatever I wanted and not gaining any weight. That is just how it was until I was in my early 30s.
In my late 30s I feel that my health started to go downhill. Weight started adding up, which was probably promoted through beer consumption.
There are two things I need to do – stop drinking and start eating healthy.
I feel better when I do not drink. As soon as I drink something I feel my blood pressure going up, and I feel bloated the next day.
Eating healthy, I like healthy foods. I will eat all kinds of fruit and I will eat spinach with just about anything. And not canned spinach either, I like the fresh spinach.
Oranges give me mouth sours, even though I love oranges I can not eat them.
For the past few days I have I have swapped a breakfast sandwich for granola and a banana. Changing my breakfast probably saved me 300 calories per day. And the granola and banana contain less fat then the cheese and egg.
Bedtime sank has been a kiwi and cherries.
Hunting season is just 2 and a half months away. I need to get active so I can walk to the deer stand.
