recently, due to stress and frustration my blogs have let's say changed a bit. humor isn't really there anymore. i wouldnt say that ive been phoning it in per se. more that im just more focused on getting to 195.
My blogs tend to be about
* my weight and how close to 195 I am
* # of vegetables
that being said, over the past month there have been some concepts that have actually improved in my life. “Non-scale victories” in Sparkese.
I regularly eat 3 servings of low-fat dairy per day. Usually at least 1 of them is low fat plain yogurt
TD’s yougurt snack recipe
* 1c plain non fat yogurt (130-150 cal)
* 1/2c berries (usually blueberries or raspberries) (60 cal)
* 2T-1/4c nuts (almonds or walnuts) (90-200)
speaking of berries…..
usually 3-4 per day. Kiwi’s, berries, banana’s, cherries, nectarines. When September hits, I will probably start eating more apples, oranges, apricots etc.
Organized grocery shopping:
I don’t throw away a lot of food like I used to. I have a strong sense of how much food per week I need. The day I shop, my refrigerator has usually 2 cups of milk and a few pieces of fruit left. If I know that im going to eat out more than usual in the up coming week (like last week), I’ll by less perishables
These are things that I have taken for granted, but they are very real. Even if I have a few years to go on the vegetables and whole grains, im getting enough calcium, vitamin c and anti-oxidants. My refrigerator is far less cluttered. I feel less guilty about throwing out food (bc im throwing out less food)
Just wanted to share
