Not a New Year's Resolution

Sunday, January 01, 2012

This is not a New Year's Resolution, but desire to change some of the eating habits that I have let fall by the wayside. My weight has been increasing over the past few months and I want to get back to my 'fighting' weight.
I spent the morning rereading parts of my Dash Diet book and planning my week's menu to allow for a daily plan consisting of 4 servings of fruits, 4 servings of vegetables, a 1200 cal. per day plan, a maximum of 1000 mg of sodium and an attempt at increasing my potassium intake to 4500 mg (something that I find very difficult). I deliberately created a general menu that I can adjust day by day as needed.

    How are you doing, Jody, a week or so into the new year? I find that as long as I keep my potassium/sodium ratio at least at 2:1 I'm doing ok.

    Good time to re-think our goals for the coming year. Sounds like you have a solid plan & that's a wonderful beginning.
