5K done!

Sunday, October 07, 2012

Whoo hoo! I walked the Crawling Crab 5K. I couldn't have done this without having regularly worked out. I am more determined to stay on my plan.


Office temptations

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

I'm finding that it's getting easier to say no to all of the everpresent munchies in my office. My co-workers are starting to say "Don't offer Kim any - she'll just say no". I don't feel like I've let them down anymore. I've decided to transform that old negative reaction to a positive one and think they are reminding me of my goals before my hand reaches for temptation.

Meal prep

Saturday, August 11, 2012

I'm going to try to do some batch cooking this weekend so that I can make my own TV dinners. I have to take my lunch to work and this will save time in the morning if they are already prepared. I'm getting a little tired of salads.

    I read the comments before i went to the store. I was standing in the check out when a little voice said "you forgot to get fruit for dessert". I went to the produce areas and the pears were actually speaking to me :) Thanks all for the support!

I made Morning Glory muffins (from Drop 5lbs show on Cooking Network) and Simple quinoa for the week.

    Go for it! I LOVE batch cooking, as it makes my weekdays easier and it makes staying within my appropriate food choices a snap.

Best of luck to you on your journey back to good health. emoticon

    Great idea. I used to do this all the time. And when I didn't have time I would just double my nightly cooking to have left overs for lunches. You will appreciate the time spent doing this.....especially because after awhile salads get boring. emoticon Don't forget a fruit for dessert.
