Well I just finished my lunch halfway through day four. A small/medium lettuce & spinach salad. "Borrowed" some lite salad dressing from a coworker since all I had in the frig were heavy creamy dressings. It's been a challenge to figure out how much of each thing I'm eating, but it's starting to feel normal to look at the nutritional facts of everything.
On Wednesday (day 2) I had purchased some organic almonds and some cajun sesame sticks for snacks from the health food store. Once I looked up the nutrition data on the sesame sticks, they aren't quite so healthy. BUT they are really spicy so if I eat just a few, then I HAVE to drink some water to save my mouth. I will be using them for that purpose. I have never been a big water drinker.
This afternoon will be my first trip to the store to get lots of fresh fruits and veggies as well as other stuff. I can't wait to try some of the great healthy recipes. I will be reading labels!
I am looking forward to a busy weekend getting stuff done around the house and yard. We are doing a lot of updating, painting, remodeling in and out. It's work and it's exercise. I will still get my walks and strengthening in as well.
Have a great weekend!
