Yesterday, I started a new diet. It's an eating healthier with less white carbohydrates diet. I made it up based on some reading. The difference between this and say the Atkins diet is that you can eat healthy carbs, like vegetables, just no starch.
Breakfast may consist of egg whites, some vegetables and black beans; lunch a chicken breast, spinach and lentils and dinner pork chops, asparagus and pinto beans. Lots of legumes. Like a lot of diets you're supposed to eat several small meals a day, 4 - 6. I just have a hard time fitting that into my schedule so I'm doing 3 for now. We'll see that how goes.
On the vacation front, we are going to Puerto Vallarta in April. This warrants a bit of motivation for my diet: I want to look good in my bikini. We're staying in a very nice resort with all the meals and alcohol included. We'll be spending most of the time on the beach or by the pool. We bought one excursion to see the old town but other than that just a lot of rest and relaxation. We can always decide to add other packages (zip lining, swimming with the dolphins etc.) when we get there. I'm excited about it. Though, as you know, this means no flat screen television this year.
