So I have decided to make an effort to get into better shape. I contemplated making a new category for the blog, but realized that making a category would make it feel like an obligation to write, at which point I would feel less like writing on the topic. I’ll just try to write about it as I feel the need and shove it into the Random Thoughts category…
In any event, part of my getting into better shape is being more conscious of what I eat and how much. So the other day I decided to read the label on my cereal box. I ran through the nutrients and it all looked pretty good, perhaps I could do without the sugar, but every time I tried a cereal that wasn’t a sugary kids cereal it tasted like cardboard. While eating things that taste like cardboard may, in fact, be healthier, putting up with the cardboard taste isn’t worth it. So anyway, I also notice that the serving size of all this morning sugary goodness is “1 cup”. I looked at my cereal bowl and wondered if it was a cup… so I got out a measuring cup.
One cup of cereal is a lot smaller than I thought it would be. It turns out my usual breakfast is actually about two and a half cups, sometimes three. So I poured myself a cup of cereal and a half glass of orange juice.
It seems until my body gets used to it, I’m going to be hungry a lot.
