Dear Diet Diary: It was a good day

Sunday, June 13

Dear Diet Diary,

I’ve certainly had my fill. A week’s worth of leftover christening cake is more indulgence than any woman needs! I’m ready to bid farewell to the sugary treats for awhile. I don’t even think I’ll miss them.

My fitness assessment is just four weeks away. I’ll be nine months postpartum then. You know what they say – it takes nine months to gain the weight, and at least nine months to lose it. I really hope to fit into my favourite jeans by then. Hence the not-so-bitter sweet farewell.

Today was my first really good diet day. (Not diet, like DIET; diet like nutrition). I ate well and had a healthy calorie intake. Plus I had good fats and a total fat intake within the recommended daily allowance. 27% of my calories came from fat. It was a good day.
