Dieting is easy. It’s like riding a bike. Though, the bike is on fire, the ground is on fire and you’re in hell. I hope that sentence really brings home the fact that I hate dieting. Yet here I sit, writing a post about dieting because I am trying to lose a little weight before a vacation. The struggle is real but here are a few funny things that I do and others do that make me feel a little bit better about myself.
One thing I have tried to do is put skim milk in my coffee in the morning instead of creamer. My roommate drinks it and “loves” it. So, I thought, “Hey, this won’t be so bad!” Spoiler Alert: It is.
I admit that I am one of those losers who Instagrams (is that a verb?) pictures of my food. In my defense, this is a tactic I use to hold myself accountable to eating health foods, and as someone who had struggled with weight a lot, I need that!
Don’t tell me that my oatmeal doesn’t look aesthetic.
However, I have learned that if I make healthy food look pretty, I am way more excited to eat it. Maybe I am just a nerd though.
I think one of the worst things about losing weight is all the damn salads you have to eat. Don’t get me wrong, I love salads
smothered in ranch ! Salads to me are just one of those foods that you get sick of in an instant.
And you know when you tell all your friends and family that you are on a diet, they all have to chime in with their remarks. For example, this is a conversation I had with my roommate yesterday.
Rommie: What did you put in your wrap?
Me: [proudly] Just some grilled chicken, lettuce, beets and half an avocado.
Rommie: You know that if you want to lose weight, you can only have like 1/5 of an avocado, right?
And when you’re at that point in the diet that your search history looks like this:
One thing I’ve been trying lately is drinking apple cider vinegar. I’ve been using some for my face and it has been really working on clearing up my skin, so I thought why not see if it helps me lose weight?
I’ve heard promising things, but apple cider vinegar tastes like what I imagine battery acid tastes like. I loath it. I’ve been trying to do one tablespoon in a full glass of water with some cinnamon.
This is my face when I drink it:
Yeah, it’s that gross.
And when you finally succumb to the carbs and just call it a cheat day…that turns into a cheat week. It’s a snowball effect, my friends.
Bye diet, try ya in a few weeks.
How do you feel when you diet? Is the struggle real?
