Between the Atkins, Zone, South Beach, Jenny, Nutrisystem, and Lord knows how many other types of diets there are out there – how is anyone in their right mind supposed to choose the right one? Holy crap.

For the two months and a half months that Ben and I have been engaged, I have lost a grand total of (most likely) ZERO pounds. There was a plan, just like there always is in these types of situations…come up with a goal, make goal happen. But right now it’s not coming to fruition.

Oh, don’t worry – I’m not going to dribble on here acting like I don’t know why things aren’t going my way. It’s the carbs, the fats, the sugars I can’t quite eliminate and the general deliciousness that makes up all food. Yup, I’m a foodie – hear me roll!!

But as a step in the right direction, I have been curtailing my diet to include more fruits and veggies and attempting to cut out the more useless simple sugars that only seek to destroy my progress and send my blood sugar on a roller coaster that would make a small child chuck.

The gym has been my companion after work for nearly 5 days a week the last few weeks, hoping to ramp up that metabolism and build up the muscle that seems to be hiding behind the dense layer of winter coat I have accrued since hurting my back a few years ago. But NO MORE!!

Those muscles are palpable. Those muscles are making a comeback. Those muscles are starting to peek out from behind their fatty curtain to show themselves once again. Victory. Will. Be. Mine.

So now, I’d really like to ask you all….what are your diets tips and tricks? What is your must do workout activity? What trick to do you use to stave off that last bite of the brownie? I am all ears!!
