Changing things up

So, I mentioned in an earlier post that I was going to sign up for Weight Watcher. Well, I did! And looking over the food guide and such, I actually got excited. I mean, REALLY excited. .

I hadn’t realized how restricted I felt trying to do the paleo and low carb thing. While both are great eating plans, they weren’t great eating plans for me. At all. I literally ate the same ten foods all the time. But now I can really eat whatever I want. But I’m going to choose healthier choices because I want to. Not because I have a big-assed list of foods I absolutely can’t eat.

So today I’m going food shopping. And I’ll be buying low-fat Greek yogurt, popcorn, natural peanut butter, oatmeal, whole grain pasta, bread……… things I love but really haven’t enjoyed in over a year.

I think it’s going to be a bit of a shock to my system over the next few days. But I’ll ride it out.

The hubs is still going to do low carb, so the weeks that he’s home should be interesting.
