The reason I'm writing right now is because I'm feeling good. My eating is clean today and I have good energy. I never write when I eating crap! Ever! I write when I'm feeling good or possibly when I'm about to eat crap. If I haven't, I will start coming here to vent about my feelings regarding my cravings and desires to eat foods that are not on the list. Good point, maybe I'll make the list now. I wasn't planning on doing this, but I feel it would be a good exercise. Speaking of exercise, I was recently turned on to Bikram yoga. I'm so stoked on this new find. It may be that my yoga practice is helping figure this stuff out. All I know is if I eat like shit the day or night before doing bikram, the classes are harder and I struggle. More on Bikram later...Back to my list of foods to stay away from:
- Coffee--> I have to stay away from coffee. I'm a total addict and I LOVE a good caffeine buzz and it totally fucks with my energy and food intake.
- Refined flour--> I can hardly imagine not ever having slice of sourdough bread again, but need to test the waters here. (I actually have an appointment with a nutritionist next week. Hoping she can shed some light on my struggles!)
- Potato Chips--> They're not that healthy for you and it may be a food that I should stay away from.
I think I'm starting to get tired writing now! It sure does feel good to write again. I love this forum. I found some great Bikram blogs that are so fun to read. I can't believe how much I love doing Bikram yoga. I feel soooo gooood when I'm done with my practice. I want to be a Bikram instructor! I'm gonna start saving now! My goal is to do it in 2012! Stoked! Stoked! Stoked!

I need to write down yesterdays intake:
2 venti coffees from starbucks
steel cut oats with banana and brown sugar
spaghetti with alfredo and veggies from cafeteria (bland)
beans and tomatoes (cafeteria) --not bad
peanut butter cookie (cafeteria) very good, but super greasy
When I got home from work at 11pm then I had:
ritz crackers and cheddar cheese
ritz crackers and smoked salmon (from costco) very good
small lunch bag of lays barbecue chips
2 bowls of lucky charms with almond milk
I think that's it. I may be forgetting something. It's the night eating of junk food that's been hard to break, but that's about to change! At least that's my honest intention! I will go to a meeting tonight, maybe. Tomorrow for sure! We'll see how I feel at midnight. I'm kinda sleepy eyed right now...therefore, i'm signing off
