I learned something really interesting and beneficial tonight. Turns out butternut squash is considered to be an “unfavorable” carbohydrate. Honestly – can’t really say I’m all that sad about having some justification to not eat it. I like it – and would continue to eat it since it’s in season, blah, blah, blah – but I definitely don’t love it.

We went to a nutrition talk tonight at the CrossFit location Jon goes to. It was very well done and interesting – and validating since I already do almost everything they talked about.

(The thing I don’t do? Fish oil. Jon takes those huge pills, but I just can’t.)

I am not a big fan of “diets” and haven’t followed any sort of specific diet as I’ve lost weight – I like the primal approach and I see the benefit of WW and I count calories here and there. Mostly? I just don’t eat shit. That said, I think I might try the Zone way for a little while. I’ve read (skimmed) about it before and determined it was too much trouble – but what I learned tonight wasn’t so bad – potentially easier than counting calories and carbs.

I’m not planning to change the way I eat at all – just looking for some portion control. I’m going to go back to posting pictures and info daily, too. Taking the time to do that helps me focus and keeps me accountable – so my goal is to make it one month before I reevaluate.

I need to do something. I’m losing motivation re: weight loss because …. I don’t know. I’m just tired of thinking about it. I really enjoy thinking and talking about health and fitness. The weight loss part? OVER IT. I’m not done, for sure – need to work on tightening up my portions and get it over with for chrissakes.

I still need to lose about 20 pounds to make my 2009 goal – I WILL MAKE IT if it kills me. After that? Not sure. I’ll think about it when I get there.
