Wicked Dieting

I've decided that I'm going on a diet. Not only do I want to look better, but I want to feel better and be more confident. The food that I usually eat (I eat a Quaker chewy granola bar for breakfast every morning, eat school pizza for lunch everyday, and usually have some sort of white pasta or chicken for dinner everynight) makes me feel really sluggish and gross, and I'm (literally) sick of it! I want to feel good on the inside and out! Now I just need to the willpower/willingness of my mom to buy the right food...

Whats been stopping me for so long about starting a diet and getting healthy is really not knowing what to eat. My idea of "healthy" is a an apple every once in a while and maybe some carrots thrown in with dinner. Not very healthy at all, I know. I really want to work on changing that an educating myself on whats best to eat. You're probably going to think its silly, but Glamour magazine has some really good tips on their website for healthy foods! I'm going to take their advice for every meal and snack. Over the past week I've made up a list of all the foods I think will be healthy, still taste good, and not be too overly expensive.

- Homemade oatmeal with cinnamon or instant oatmeal with apples and cinnamon
- A glass of orange(with vitamin C and D) or cranapple juice
- An apple or an orange

Lunches: (I'm going to start brining my own lunch)
- A turkey sandwich on whole grain bread with lettuce, a tomato slice, and mustard
- Garlic hummus on crackers
- Low sodium chicken noodle soup
- String cheese
- Strawberries, blueberries, and peaches

- Grilled, baked, or rotisery chicken
- Whole grain pasta (with whatever we would normally have with pasta)
- Scallop stirfry with lemon juice, veggies, and whole grain pasta
- Shrimp stirfry with lemon juice, veggies, and whole grain pasta

Snacks: (I usually have something small when I get home from school)
- Sliced apples with peanut butter
- A low fat granola bar
- Frozen yogurt
- Mixed nuts with sea salt
- Dark chocolate

I think all of this is do-able. Well, I hope so. I really want to stop feeling gross and start feeling and looking amazing! Wish me luck.


Tomorrow night I'm seeing the Broadway musical Wicked! I'M BEYOND EXCITED! :D The cast is touring the country and performing in cities and, yay!, they're coming to my city! I know a lot of people that have already gone to see it and they say that it's spectacular. :D ! expect lots of pictures (especially of my outfit!)
