Once again the Ruthinator has hijacked the reins in Seekerville and holds the remaining Island-bound (but not for long, we HOPE) Seekers hostage...
So, here's the scoop.
We're writers. We work on our butts. We eat whatever's handy because many of us are keeping day jobs, or night jobs, or kid jobs etc, so life doesn't hand us a calorie counter with perfectly proportioned meals, right?
And we all know that extra weight is unhealthy, muffin top jeans are unsightly and certain people should never go shirtless.
Which means you should ALL AVOID the Jersey shore mid-summer. I'm deadly serious.
Oh my stars, don't those people have FRIENDS????
But it's so stinkin' tough to keep it together, balance food vs. weight, job, etc. And when your job is pounding a keyboard, not much caloric output there.
Share with us. We all know it's tough. I do Atkins every few months because (as you all know) my weakness is sugar. Candy. Baked goods. The fact that I'm a really good baker is part of my downfall. The high protein plan works for me because it keeps me cold turkey off carbs for at least a few weeks.
What do you guys do? What helps? What's your dietary downfall?
And feel free to eat all the cyber food you want because that one indulgence keeps us calorie-free and grounded.
Jump in here, feel free to share what keeps you motivated and targeted. And what doesn't????
Because even if we've fallen off the January 2nd wagon, we can jump back on, help one another.
