Hello! I am back from my little blogging vacation to talk about an exciting food program that I am going to be trying out next week. I first need to start off by talking about how I never, EVER cook these days. I buy lunch and dinner out and spend way more money on food than I can afford. I probably consume way more calories than I realize because I eat out so much. So, why did I stop cooking completely?
1) The single life: I had a boyfriend during the first couple of years of my blog and one of our fun activities together was cooking. We made whole wheat pasta, Mexican salads, chicken with vegetables, etc. Everything was pretty healthy and I probably saved a lot of money by doing this. Now that I am single, I can’t find a good reason to spend so much time cooking just to sit and eat the food by myself. Even if I am seeing someone and they want me to cook for them, I say no and we end up just ordering out! Sorry boys.
2) Laziness: I get home from the gym around 8:30pm. The last thing I feel like doing is cooking. It is just so much easier to buy a $15 salad from Equinox or make a $10 fro-yo conconction from Flavaboom.
3) Binge-eating: Yes, it is still an issue for me. I can’t have food in the house. This might be the main reason I don’t cook. I try to buy $20 worth of healthy food from Trader Joe’s but I end up eating it all in one day. I’d rather spend extra money to eat out and not worry about this.
I do not feel as healthy as I used to since I’ve been eating out so much. I have no idea how many calories are in the meals I order. I used to bring a turkey sandwich for lunch every day but now I can’t say no to ordering fries from the diner with my work team! I have been trying to figure out some solution to all of this for a while now. I’ve always considered at-home meal delivery because my calories would be set for the day, I would not have to sit for 20 minutes debating what to eat, and I would never have to cook! I think the only thing stopping me is the price. I’m also not confident that I can stick to the meals and not eat other temptations at work. Well, next week I am going to put this all to the test. The Fresh Diet has offered to send me a week worth of meals to try out! I am very excited about this, especially since I am going on a cruise in a couple of weeks and would love to get my eating under control before then! I want to feel confident in a bikini!

Sounds great to me! I created an account on the website a couple of days ago and was asked to enter my weight, height, and my goal weight. I was also able to choose how many calories per day I wanted to consume. I chose the 1500 calorie plan. I have no idea how many calories I eat right now so this should be interesting to see how hungry I get! I was also able to choose my meals. There were so many delicious-looking options! Are you ready for your mouth to water?
Every meal looked so amazing so it was tough to choose but I am super excited to try everything. I will be starting the diet early next week and will document my experience at the end. Instead of worrying about food and calories every second, I can focus my attention on the important things in life- like meeting boys in NYC.
By the way, if you are interested in trying the Fresh Diet, you can receive 3 days free with the purchase of a 31 day plan at $29.99 per day. The promo code is: singlmar29.
