Tweaking the meal plan logging
Thursday, August 06, 2009
Ok so Sunday I started logging my food. I did good on the weekend. That was a surprise to me. As in the past I would blow the weekend because we would be going out and things like that. Though now that we eat at home all but one meal a week that makes that an easier thing to handle.
My biggest challenge is the days that I work. I tend to want to binge after work. Not always hungry. I think it is more a comfort release. Something that says I am home. YEAH!! I am in my safe and comfy home. I also tend to not to write my food out on the days I work. I just don't have the time and when I do have the time I am tired and not in the mood to work more, specially about food.
I have been thinking about these two issues and come up with this solution. I make meal plans for supper, which I make my grocery list from. I need to expand these plans to include all meals and snacks. This way I will have good alternatives in the house. I can also log the meals a week at a time and then only change the things that differ (as a I realize the best laid plans sometimes get changed)
So that is my task tomorrow. I will plan next weeks meals (all of them and a daily snack) out. Not much different than I do now. Just a few more meals.
I can do this. I am worth it!!
