Rules, and Vow Renewal

Ok, its time to write out the rules. Mostly so that is Fatty catches me breaking one, he can beat me.

1. Keep carbs at or below 30g per day.
2. Keep calories between 1200-1600 per day.
3. Track food daily.
4. Measure foods properly, before cooking.
5. Exercise as much as possible. ** (See below)
6. Restrict Splenda (& artificial sweeteners in general) to 2 servings a day.
7. Restrict caffeine to one serving per day.
8. Restrict Maltitol (& sugar alcohols in general) to 1 serving per WEEK.
9. Allow fruit (within carb limit) once every 2 weeks.
10.Be POSITIVE. 10lbs is coming off, for sure!

** I have a new little trick I am going to try regarding exercise. I absolutely always exercise when I am wearing my work out clothes. My new rule is that, as soon as I get home from work, I immediately change into my work out clothes. I will leave them out and ready every day. When I am wearing my work out clothes, I will make everything into a work out, I will jog up and down the stairs, I will do lunges while washing dishes. Seriously, it's ridiculous, but it works. So, I'll use it to my advantage.
This also makes me do two other things I really need to do -
1. Buy some new work out clothes (& socks!)
2. Keep up with my god damn laundry!

Ok, that's all for now! Happy Monday people!
