As usual, this is my lunch for tomorrow. Just a simple salad as I'm trying to shed off some weights and inches. Currently planning to go on a low-carbodryhate diet to see if it works. I'm quite a carbo-person and I think that makes it why I decided to choose the "Semi-Atkins" diet.
Once my carbo intake is reduced plus with the exercises I'm currently engaging, I hope to shed off 10 pounds by begining of May!

Wish me luck my friends!
