Getting Easier

I've been sticking to my diet and exercise schedule
really well. I'm so excited about this. I've always known
that I wanted to lose weight before college, and I've been
trying to get (and stay motivated) since April, and now I'm
finally getting somewhere, not just wishing I could.

My bike ride yesterday was so much easier for me than it
has been since I started. Of course, it's still a pathetic
length of a ride, considering that last summer, I went on
an occassional 10- or 15-mile ride with my best friend and
hardly felt a thing. It's sad that I've gotten that out of
shape in less than a year.

After I finished the "miracle diet" last time, I found
another copy of it that my mother had. Of course, it was
right after I'd eaten those damn beets... And it gives you
an option of beets or carrots. Well, geez, I could go on
this diet a million times if I can eat carrots instead. I
can stand everything else on the diet, and what I don't
like, I'm acquiring a taste for.

So, I'm back on the diet for 3 days. I know that you're
supposed to wait 4 days so that you go in one-week cycles,
but the two days I was off the diet, I felt out of control,
even though I was fine. So I'm doing this until I can make
a few menus for myself. I think I do better when I have a
plan to follow which tells me exactly what to eat, instead
of my trying to pick the healthy thing.

I can't wait to start seeing results on my body and not
just the scale (even though seeing them on the scale is
VERY awesome)! I can't wait to get started on my workout
today! In fact, I don't have to wait...
