Day 155: Bye bye Sonoma Diet?

Submitted by BaylorBlondie on Thu, 09/28/2006 - 4:11pm.

I have been contemplating finishing the Sonoma Diet and pursuing a new one that is more in line with my lifestyle.  I really do not have any time to cook the fabulous meals on the Sonoma Diet.  I am also a very bad cook and hate cooking in general.  I have not acquired the skill of sitting down and writing out the weekly meals so I can go to the grocery store to purchase all the necessary items.  As a result, I feel that I am a horrible example of somebody on this diet.  I cannot fault the diet.  I have just found that this diet is very difficult for a younger person with an extremely active social life that includes dining out and spontaneous weekend trips.  I have learned a great deal and altered my eating habits. 

For instance, I have a caffinated soda maybe once every other month.  This is amazing for the girl formerly known as Miss Dr. Pepper.  I have also really cut back on sugar.  I pass on dessert often to the amazement of others.  I have also really limited my portion sizes.  This may have been the hardest part for me, especially when it comes to my macaroni & cheese.  I have to consciously put the bowl down for about 10 min and then re-evaluate if I am still hungry.  99% of the time, I am quite full. 

We are off for our cruise tomorrow and then I am out another week for business.  I will do some research about a new diet to see if there is one that better fits my lifestyle.  Stay tuned….
