Going Shopping

Monday, May 20, 2013

I recently had a shopping experience that I found very exciting. No, I did not visit Belks, Macy's , Penney's, Nordstrom's or any of the other department stores. Instead,my shopping experience took place in my very own home.... out of my very own closet! To my delight, some of my favorite items that had been "pushed to the back" were able to take their place "front and center." It was truly exciting to be able to wear some of the items that I had previously given up on. Things that were too tight or worse yet....things I could not get in at all. Yes, I still have some items that I cannot wear. But I am a work in progress and the end has not yet been written. I have no doubt that the end will end with emoticon because I will emoticon until I can give myself two thumbs up.

Just a simple and heartfelt thank you for all the encouragement and advice you've all given me. We're all doing the best we can on our own, but positive reinforcements from our team mates can literally push us to the next level. So thank you to all my fellow dawggies. I am better because of you. Let's keep our positive momentum going on our way to the UK. emoticon emoticon

    Smoothies. You can "drink" 3 or four servings of fruit in a smoothie. I also like frozen grapes and blueberries. Good luck!

WhaT Can I Improve Upon?---5% Day 5

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

The main thing I can improve upon with increasing freggie consumption is to plan and shop ahead. Not taking the time to plan meals adequately limit my choices at meal prep time. I would like to get away from canned products and rely more on fresh and frozen. Just gotta take time to get the shopping done.

    Boy, are we thinking the same! My habit to work on this week is the same one.

Frozen works for me, but takes up some ice cream space in the freezer! emoticon

Good luck with yours... emoticon

    Sodium is a silent killer that is used in prepared foods more than when cooked at home. Frozen veggies are usually fresher than "fresh" veggies in the stores. I am addicted to the steamables when my garden is not producing.

    I buy a lot of frozen and there are some canned veggies that have 50% less sodium or no salt added. Yours is a good plan.

How I'm Doing Day By Day---%5Challenge Day 4

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

I'm staying on track better some days than others. I was super busy today and got a late start eating. Really only 1 meal, which was dinner.....and only 1 vegetable. So today was not a good day, on the other hand, it's the worst I've done since targeting increasing my freggies consumption. Tomorrow will be a better day.
