Lately I've noticed a "hobby" of mine increasingly getting worse! I am the worst cover/back-up singer when it comes to driving along in my car alone. I tend to turn the music up a little louder, mix in a little hand choreography, & go for (dare I say it?) the high notes; yep the mother load(think Mariah Carey or Celine Dion!). Sometimes I believe my mind puts me in that person's place as an artist or even at a concert! I used to feel so much shame while belting it out that I would pay attention to where the cars are around me & stop singing as they came into view! So you ask: "how could it get worse?", well, I still sing, but now if a car is near me I continue to sing, but try to mask it as I'm talking on a blue tooth or something! I know I'm not alone in this & it actually gives me a giggle when I think about it, but something must be done!
Okay on to the more serious part of this post & I'm completely aware of most people reflecting on this because of the time of year; Diet! There are so many options now, that it really is hard to decide which diet to choose. I've decided to list my options & weigh them out, while considering the time it takes to see results, easiest to maintain, & the best overall in the long run; here are my options:
Weight Watchers: Old faithful, I know it is because I've lost 30lbs this way before, I was a bit younger but it wasn't so hard after the 1st week of seeing a 4lb result just from habit change. I already have the materials, but feel like I would benefit from the support of a meeting, the funds just aren't there for a $40/month weight in & chat. This is the diet that gives me the most flexibility, but this isn't always good in the sense if you give me 1 chocolate I'm going to eat 35!
South beach/Atkins: these may work for some people, but not for me; I do not have a love for "meat" & really could do without a diet with so much of it involved
Nutrisystem/Jenny Craig: Completely out of the question, if I don't want to spend the $40/month then $300 is way out of range
Raw foods/All veg: This is my clear choice as it's the easiest to go with, & obviously will yield pretty fast results which I need to stick with it. I worry about the after, but in my head I imagine that once I get started my insane sugar cravings will decline. Who knows, we'll see since this is the diet I've chosen to start a week from today for 10 days just to see if it's even possible!
