Changes I Made Today

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Although technically I'm not planning on changing my lifestyle in a major way until January 2 (which is probably a poor way of looking at it anyway), I've decided to make two small changes today, just as a start:

1. Measuring all of my food, and recording it here

2. Stop adding salt, period. For most of my adult life, I only ate what sodium naturally occurred in food (or was added in recipes, as long as it wasn't a lot). It's only in recent years that I've started adding a ton of it. So, I'm going back to the healthier way. No added salt. Later, I'll actually be adding my total sodium intake.

So these are positives for today. I need to work on a more positive attitude, to find some ray of sunshine even when I'm feeling so down.

    Congrats on starting to make healthy changes! I was a salt addict and will probably always crave that extra dash...so good for you for making such an important change in your food habits. emoticon

    taking changes a little at a time I believe is the best way -- just work up to the ones you want to change in January.

    There was a really good Daily Spark Article today about what can happen if we wait.

    But also I believe that if you make changes and start formulating some changes in your mind you'll be ready come January!!
