I know how to do this...

Monday, May 21, 2012

I know how to do this…lose weight but I’ve been struggling for a long time. I track, I don’t track. I exercise, I don’t exercise. I eat whatever I want, I watch what I eat. I have a plan, I don’t have a plan.

My plan for now…

Eat right. Portion control. Say no to sugary foods. Say yes to veggies.

This is where I’m starting this week.

I planned dinners for most of the week. I bought the food. I planned ahead.

I didn’t buy lots of processed foods at the grocery store. I bought lots of fresh veggies and trimmed meats. I also bought frozen veggies for use when ever. I planned salads and low cal but tasty sandwiches for my lunch.

In the future I will begin to lean away more from processed foods including granola bars, protein bars and chex mix. These are the three items that are consistently in my lunch every day. I can make my own if I still want them but since I purchased these items and no one else will eat them in my house, I will continue to put them in my lunch until they are gone because I simply can’t afford to just toss them. Plus, they are fine as part of my diet for now. But I do want to get away from eating so much processed foods.

Less processed foods will mean more cooking for me. Which is fine. I don’t know why I stopped cooking so much. I like to cook…maybe not every day but I do like to cook. Of course that’s what leftovers are for.

    Good for you.
    I got the spark people cookbook, and have been trying those recipes. Always seem to have leftovers- so we have it again two days later. :) Each recipe we've tried so far is SO good!
