Monday is the big day: out with carbs and sofa surfing, in with keto (like) cooking and cardio.

Our house is almost completely purged of the evil sugar and carb-loaded holiday treats, but I still had some gluten free bake mixes left in the cabinet that I never got a chance to bake over the holidays: irish soda bread, blueberry scones, brownies, and chocolate chip cookies. I baked them all today, with the intention of sampling a little as a last hurrah, then bringing the rest to work Monday to dispose of. To quote a brilliant, charming, dashingly handsome fellow blogger: “if it isn’t around we can’t eat it.” Then, the only food coming into our house will be veggies, fish, eggs, meat, and cheese. No treats, breads or pastas of any kind. I have absolutely NO will power when it comes to snacking. I am a compulsive binge eater and if it’s in the house, I will consume it. (Seriously: sit me down next to a tray of cookies or a sheet cake – it’s frightening.) So, the first hurdle is eating better.

The second hurdle is regular cardio – whether it’s treadmill, stationery bike, or wii fit – I need to do it. While I do want to be a little lighter for my inaugural San Diego Comicon event in July (with yet another brilliant, charming, dashingly handsome fellow blogger) I don’t really need a special reason to want to be healthier. And, while evidence reflects that I may be losing the life-long battle of the bulge, I’m going down fighting…

…and I’m taking this tray of brownies with me!

    No carbs or pasta? What’s the point in living?!?!? I will start a healthier eating campaign (again) soon, but not until returning from Beef Dip (bear week in Puerto Vallarta). Good luck to us all!!

    I need to do the same. My Instant Pot will arrive on Tuesday, which means I have to go shopping on Monday for for items I’ll need to cook whatever I plan on eating for dinner the day it’s delivered.

    My comment got lost! It was to say I too have started a better diet; I hope we both do well.

    We’ve been pretty much carb free for six months. Although now that we’re out of New England and in the Atlanta area we’ve been eating rice, beans etc. Heavy sigh.


  7. Good luck with your new diet. I am the same way. If it is in the house I will eat it. Last night I ate 1/2 of a bag of twizzlers.


  8. Now I feel guilty for that big batch of chocolate chip cookies I made last night. Good luck with your new diet!


  9. Squeeeee! I can’t wait to have you join us here in San Diego! and finally get to give you a big hug and a wet kiss!

      Aww…thanks sweety. While I won’t deny some vanity is involved, I’m mostly compelled to shed some pounds for health reasons. Can’t wait to meet Fearsome and (hopefully) Ravager.
