Diet Time!

Ok, so I have been needing to go on a diet for a while now. Seriously. I have gained about 30 pounds since the wedding last year. This had a little bit to do with the fact that I was working at Starbucks, and then got a job sitting at a desk all day that was so boring I would snack. Not good.
Well, now that I got a new job where I am busy all the time and eat on a regular schedule and don't have much time to snack, I decided to start trying to eat healthier. Josh even mentioned it a couple days ago... We both want to lose some weight.
Well, when I logged into my email account this morning, I had an email from Beth at Womans World magazine... Inviting me to test out a diet program for them! Yay! I signed up via email sometime last year... So anyways, they are paying me $25 a day for 7 days to follow this diet plan. It is a pretty simple menu to follow, and I have to "walk briskly" for at least a half an hour a day. I am not usually the best to follow diets, but the motivation of money is a big thing for me! I can do this for a week! and who knows, maybe it will stick for longer.
So yeah, I will update you all on my progress in the next week, and we will see how it goes!

On another note, I ordered a pair of Nurse Mates Shoes for work. I went through Did you know if you order through them, and register on their site, you get 10% off, and if you CLICK HERE, you will get a $10 off coupon. =) (and if 5 people click that link and buy shoes, I get a gift certificate! fun!) Just thought I would share the savings!

Good luck with the diet!
Yeah, I brought home a box of the No Sugar Added Banana Nut Cake one day that we hadn't sold. As I was eating it, thinking "Wow, this is great with butter", I noticed that *one* slice had almost 500 calories!! And hardly any nutritional value! Crazy!
Lately I've been putting a banana in my purse every day. It usually gets me through my shift until I get home to have some "real" food. :)

And thanks for the suggestion of crocheting! My friend Lindsay tried to teach me once how to knit - I made a very successful... something. :-P Maybe I'll check it out again - it's not expensive at all!
