me pack the lunch the night before? nah, I go brain dead

Thursday, June 10, 2010

in the evening it's as if I'm in lala land...then in the morning, it's hurry and grab.

But, I do put things in baggies, and they are either in the refrig or freezer or shelf. and when I pack the lunch bag, I put the handle on the door, no more going out the door and forgetting it.

Today's lunch was protein, mixed nuts, strawberries, cherries, veggies, it was really good. when I pack good food it takes longer for me to eat lunch. Can't eat as quickly as I do the fast food.

Best to all of my readers, and I appreciate your comments, thanks!

  If you have things in baggies, ready to go, then your lunch is mostly packed the night before. Give yourself some credit! I can relate to being in "lala land" in the evening, but I'm not much better in the morning so I know I have to have things ready before I go to bed.

    emoticonI do pack my lunch everyday for work. Most days it is healthy. It was hard to get started years ago. I does get easier as you get used to doing it regularly.

    Good idea, don't know how many times didn't take my lunch because I did not have enough time to put it together.

    I try to pack my lunch the night before so all I have to do in the morning is grab. Is that what you do?

eating right

i brought my food today.....what I like and is good for me


like what you eat

Monday, June 07, 2010

..someone I know got out of their comfort zone and into mine and we had quite the telephone call concerning what I eat. I rather thought that i was old enough to choose what I eat...

the topic was, am I eating what I like or am I people pleasing.....and what are the consequences to me if I don't follow what someone else wants me to eat.....really some things that were ingrained in me as a kid......

long story later and this person stayed in my face and walked me through a virtual trip through the grocery store, yes, I could have hung up

I didn't buy the better quality green and wax beans because I thought it too expensive (a whopping .25 more a can, when I spend that on an ice cream sundae.

it cilcked. there may be some other things but I got it, and when I went into the grocery store and got overwhelmed with all of the stuff and started to buy the old habit stuff, I looked at my notes and the list of things that I like....and bought that

it was one small thing that hadn't clicked yet. I was good with the water, and buying and bagging etc this, though. I had missed

I bought watermelon, and strawberries and dark turkey legs and apples and lots of other things, and I'll either count weight watchers points because I have an old book which has been lying around here, or calories,

i have to figure out what those old tapes in my head are playing and turn them off.
It's ok to buy watermelon because I like it, and strawberries I like as well.
the world won't come to an end....well, someday it may, but not because I bought strawberries or watermelon

    It is good to eat what you like; there's nothing wrong with watermelon and strawberries. It would be the ice cream sundae that I would be concerned about. What I do when shopping is try to stay around the outside and not go down the aisles, especially the ones with snacks and sweets. Bulk food bins are my weakness, but I am learning to choose the healthy items rather than candy , cookies, or even full-fat granola.
Those old tapes are a real bugger; I know. It helped me to replace them with positive affirmations. I look at myself in the mirror and say "Hello, Beautiful! God loves you, and I do too!" I felt really silly about it at first, but then it was not so uncomfortable, and then I grew to like it.
Keep trying, and don't give up!

  Make a list of the healthy foods that you like and make sure that they are the main part of what you buy. Then if you know that an ice cream sundae is a comfort food, maybe that can fit in somewhere within your calorie range for a special treat occasionally. I think the key is to do things intentionally and not just out of habit or not realizing why you are doing it.
