I Fricking Love Coca Cola

I Fricking Love Coca Cola? Diet Update

I’ve managed to lose a bit of weight adjusting my diet as I said I would but it’s not being as easy as I had first felt.

I was ready to jump straight back into exercise, raring to go, but life doesn’t always work with your plans. A few unavoidable things have come up that have meant I’ve not always been able to cook for myself. However I have been making better choices largely.

Frugle = Not Fruity

One factor has made it hard to make as healthy choices as I’d like to though. Coca Cola’s evil work. I went to the cinema, as I don’t do it often so I decided a hot dog was an o.k. treat, not great, but o.k. as a treat. I just wanted a small drink of something healthy to wash it down with and drink thru the movie. However that was going to cost me a metric poop ton of money, but if I had a giant, and I mean as big as my head, cola, it would be cheaper.

“WTF?”

I bit the bullet and went for the cola, resolute to only drink what I needed from it, as little as possible. So aside from when I had a choking fit in the cinema and had to clear my throat I barely drunk any of this monster drink.

Fruit juice company’s need to be slutty

If fruit juice companies start getting in bed with cinemas etc like Coke do then surely I could be drinking a lovely fruit juice or water or such, instead of this head sized carton of sugar?

Can we vote with our feet/mouths?

When the choices are weighted as such can we be expected to vote with our feet/mouths as to what we’d rather have. If the prices were equal I probably would have had just a water that day as I’d already had a couple of fruit juices. But when the cinema tickets cost so much and the other food products cost are upto 85% profit then every penny starts to count.

If I’m heading out to the cinema in the future I’ll be smuggling in a bottle of water. I this what it’s come to?

First wobbly steps

So since making my post 14 Stone Wobble I’ve been making the changes I said I would. So I have up’d my exercise amount, lowered the amount of food I’m eating, and I’m eating healthier foods.
It’s actually been pretty easy to make the changes. However what’s not been hard is being hungry all the time. The only time I’ve not been hungry is when I had a protein burst in the form of a turkey stir fry for dinner. Turkey being lower in fat than chicken. 🙂

Hopefully tomorrow will be easier as I cooked double the portions for dinner tonight and the other half is in the fridge for lunch tomorrow.

I won’t blog continually about weight loss and such but these first few steps/changes are the important ones so I feel it’s best to put something down about them.
