Planning Meals Should I?

Thursday, June 07, 2012

I have never been much for planning any thing. Didn't plan today but it still happened. What happened? I stayed in my cal. allotment. I had a healthy breakfast, a light lunch and then went out to eat. I made health choices and did not get carried away. I ate as much as I wanted and left some on my plate. I did eat more vegetables then I ordered, I ate my husbands cabbage too. I love cabbage. My cal. allotment is done for the day and I forgot about a snack before bed time. I eat dinner at 6:00 pm and go to bed at 12:00 so I get hungry just before bed. I have tried to make dinner later but my hubby gets hungry and cranky. And if I don't have a snack before bed I go to bed hungry and I don't like that.

I have looked at what Sparkpeople suggests that I eat tomorrow and made substitutions with what I have on hand. It sounds like more food then I usually eat but I guess it is healthier. So tomorrow I will eat what is planned and see how that goes. There is a planned snack and I will have it before bed time. That should work.

If I get too hungry during the day I well have some raw vegetables. I have nice red and yellow peppers that would just fit the bill.

So that is my plan, I will try this planning meals thing everyone has been talking about.

    i don't know why meal planning is so hard, but for me it is. i still make good choices on the day itself, but somehow i can never figure things out in advance.

good job of staying within the calories!

    i have food amnesia....I can't remember what I had by the end of the day.
So I plan out what I intend to have...
I see how the calories and portions pan out...check that my numbers look right
and then adjust with changes. It's a lot easier...and it really isn't all that time
find a method that works for you and you'll enjoy good results

  Congrats on staying within your calorie allotment for today. That is a real accomplishment. Go to bed early so you don't have time to think about a bedtime snack.
