One Day at a Time

Following a set diet is not for me so I am working on what suits me.

New recipes and new ways of cooking are being introduced to lessen the fat content. Flavour is important so finding ways to add interest to vegetables without adding extra calories is being explored.

Following a set diet is not for me so I am working on what suits me.
For me that means a smaller plate (9 inches) and dividing it into quarter protein, quarter carbs and the rest vegetables.
Water is drunk and out goes all fizzy drinks and soft drinks like squash.
New recipes and new ways of cooking are being introduced to lessen the fat content. Flavour is important so finding ways to add interest to vegetables without adding extra calories is being explored.
Exercise is an issue due to pain but not impossible, chair exercise and seated yoga help along with walking, dancing and strength exercises.
I am doing all I can to improve my health and keep active, I care for my Husband and that means I have to be as healthy as possible.
Me time is part of my plan and being creative with keeping a journal, knitting and making items for fun helps me to relax and be as stress free as possible. This in turn helps me be more relaxed about my eating as I am not souly focussed on food.
This is an ongoing thing and not a quick fix progress may be slow but I getting there one day at a time.

emoticon Thanks for stopping by my page to read and comment on my Memorial Day blog. I'm glad you enjoyed it. emoticon
It appears we have even more in common. Regardless of the country served I think once you've enlisted there exists a connection with others who share the same experience.
