Nutritional Tracker

Sunday, January 02, 2011

As I am trying to stay on the right path, I've discovered the nutritional tracker. Not really a discovery, but new to use for me. I have been tracking my meals and reading the follow up information. It's great to get such immediate feedback on what I'm eating. I know that I'm supposed to stay within a certain range, but the tracker helps me to see where I need more work.

Tuesday I will grow grocery shopping. I've always tried to choose healthier items and stay away from processed foods. I always buy all the items necessary for a good salad, any never use them emoticon. I was hoping I would get tired off wasting that money and either eat the salad or not buy anymore. Well, I'll be buying more salad fixings this Tuesday, buy I'm confident I will be eating salad this week. I need to concentrate on finding healthy snacks. It's so hard to find good fruit. I know fresh is better than canned, but I might have to settle for a mixture of both.

Next step...... fitness!

    LOL! We're kindred spirits! I LOVE salad when someone else makes it, but when I buy the "fixin's" they just seem to turn brown, mushy, and smelly in their pretty little bags, and since I buy organic, it's REALLY an expense. One thing that works for me is to get romaine leaves and use them instead of bread. I love wrapping my turkey burgers in the leaves and eating them like a wrap. It works best when you cut the burger in half. Lots of things are really good rolled up that way.

Camillemans idea sounds good too. I thonk I'd do better with the salads if they were just "grab and go." I may add that to my list for the week.

    You should try to prepare the salad in 2 or 3 portion sizes in tupperware and leave it in the fridge. Then when you prepare your meal whether it's lunch, dinner or a snack you can just pull one out and munch away. Viola - you used the salad fixin's. The hardest part is setting aside the 10 minutes to do it without procrastinating.

    My husband says that alot to me...why did you buy it if you aren't going to eat it? So, I have resolved to eat whatever I do buy. Which honestly hasn't been that easy! :) But I am really anxious to lose this weight and I have been walking on the treadmill everyday and I am so motivated! Good luck to ya darlin!
