Ever since we moved a month ago we have been kind of stuck in the routine of eating out 1 or 2 times a week. I don't like this at all. Like I said in my previous entry I have been on a plateau now for 3 weeks. I lost1 pound in the first week of June and ever since then the scale has stayed relatively the same give or take a few ounces. I think that eating take out and delivery food is the reason.
I set a goal at my meeting this Tuesday to eat food that I have cooked myself for at least 2 meals of every day but I really plan on only eating home cooked food. I know that when I can measure and cook my own food I do much better overall. I hope that this will help me make the scale move this week and from now on!
At one of our last meetings the group leader talked about how she doesn't judge what we eat. She wants us to stay under our calories but if we decide to eat 1500 calories worth of chocolate ice cream she won't tell us that we are bad people or anything. I think this has been my problem. I've been staying in my calorie range but the food I've been eating is NOT nutritious or beneficial to my body. Such as Twix or Dominoes pizza.
I know, I know it's terrible!
This is my chance to get into the routine of being healthy my new apartment and making it a permanent change. I made a big pot of veggie & turkey chili, 12 blueberry muffins (a Sparkrecipe btw) and I'm making some balsamic chicken tonight for dinner. I'm very happy to be off to a good start already
