Yeah, I’m still around. Just posting a few Fitbit stats here and there, but nonetheless, I’m still here. Folks, I have to admit that lately, I’ve been doing a lot of soul-searching and have decided that I’m breaking up with “calorie counting.” I know that counting calories to lose weight works, but is not for me anymore. I use to be cool with analyzing food labels and writing down every morsel of food that touched my lips, but micromanaging my life isn’t working anymore. Lately I’ve been more frustrated with accounting for every piece of food and meal that I cook. So much that in fact I’m not even enjoying the food that I’m eating. On top of eating food just for survival and for the sake of reaching a 1600 calorie a day quota, I’ve been sampling a lot of tasty goodies as I try to start-up my own baking business. Now, that’s not an excuse to get buck-wild-crazy, but it’s tough to avoid eating a little suga’ suga’.
Is it possible to start a baking business, sample awesome food (gotta check out the competition), and lose weight? Well, call me crazy, but I think so. If Chef Ramsay can do it and still manage to look like a hottie, why can’t I? Moderation is key. Eating healthy and well-balanced meals are also important. Look, I know what has caused my weight gain in the first place. I didn’t gain 17 pounds because I’m a carrot-beet-lettuce-tofu binge eater. I know that eating nothing but junk and processed foods will definitely bump you up to another pant size. I also know that no one can live a sane, productive, or continuous healthy life if this is what they eat everyday. I’m not Super Woman and the same thing applies to me! I’m getting it together and not giving up. Just you see!
