Today I watched a video of myself singing and playing violin. I was mostly fine with it, but it was hard to ignore the fact that I have put on more than a few pounds this year. The problem is, I want to be thinner and I am happy with making an effort to eat better, but in all honesty my free time is so limited and there are so many things I want to do, I don't realistically see daily trips to the gym in my future.
I wonder how much weight I could lose just from eating better? I walk a mile and a half to and from work every day and sometimes take a walk at lunch, but other than that, I am not getting any exercise. I have started practicing violin regularly, which probably burns a few calories, but I'm not doing any hard core exercise at all. And, I have been eating a lot of sweets and pastries lately... I wonder what would happen if I were to just cut out refined sugar and flour? I guess we'll see... That's going to be my New Year's Resolution. Wish me luck!
