With work taking up a bit more of my time lately I've had less energy for working out when I get home. There is no way in hell you will find me setting my alarm for 30 minutes earlier in the morning so I can get a workout in before I do my morning prep. My mattress might have seen better days, but it's comfortable when I am on it! It's even better with the giant comforter, Egyptian cotton sheets, and 4 kick ass pillows. Like an overdue baby that doesn't seem to want to drop, I'm staying in there as long as I can dammit.
So this has led to a bit of a conundrum for me. How do I manage my desire to eat pretty much everything salty, sweet, fattening, creamy, or crunchy when I am not getting nearly enough cardio? I considered complete starvation, but I have no willpower. Perhaps I could force myself to do the workout anyway, but I nearly fell asleep putting my trainers on so I nixed that idea. Then I came up with a brilliant plan. Fiber.
According to WebMD, if you are interested in losing weight you should eat a diet high in fiber. Since I only care about not gaining this week it seems like a stellar plan. I bought myself a bottle of Fibersure, a couple boxes of Fiber One bars, and some Fiber Choice supplements.
I will be sprinkling this on everything. I made a giant Crystal Light this morning and added (poured) it into my water before adding the CL packet. I mixed (dumped) some into my wild rice and tuna at lunch. Later I will add a dash (1/8 cup) into my marinara for my Healthy Choice manicotti.
We all need a snack sometimes to get us through the day, right? Well what more perfect answer to that than a cereal bar? Convenient, doesn't get all over your desk, doesn't make you fingers sticky, no need to leave your desk to get it. Just sit on your ass and eat. Honestly, I gave some consideration to sprinkling some Fiber Sure on the cereal bar, but thought better of it when I realized it could cause me to lose all control of my bowels.
As much as I would like to tempt fate, I think I'll just have one a day.
Now, I know it's not the ANSWER. It's not going to be a magic powder or pill. And even if it doesn't work as I planned... I might still call to schedule a colonoscopy for next week. My colon might never be as clean as it will be by the end of this week. There should be an award for it and it should probably be given to me.
