Feeling fat...

I feel very fat today. My stomach still feels bloated and swollen, and it's still sore. I overate last night (had a bowl of cereal after dinner), so I'm not feeling 100% today. Yesterday afternoon was BEAUTIFUL outside, and I really wanted to go walk, but just didn't feel like it. All I wanted to do was lay down, so I listened to my body and did just that. I'm entitled, right?

Okay - I have decided to give up sugar. I'll probably start out South Beach Diet style, and start out with nothing the first two weeks, then gradually add the good grains/carbs into my diet. I am tired of being RULED by sugar cravings. I have to admit, since I have made a move toward eating clean it has helped. I haven't had a Cadbury egg in nearly two weeks! But once I eat something sweet, I go crazy! So I am going to tough it out and let my body detox. I haven't decided WHEN exactly, though. I'm thinking the Monday after Easter...?

We have soccer practice this evening, and they have moved the location so I no longer have a track to walk at:( Maybe after we get home I can do 30 minutes on the elliptical. Thing is, my elliptical feels like it's falling apart! Maybe it just needs to be tightened up? I dunno...
