SO this is my pre new year blog. I love to blog, but have neglected this and my regular blog for a while now. I like to put time into my blogs, but I am so busy with work and the kids, I clearly don't have time for all this. So for my first goal of the year, I plan to blog photos of what I eat. This is much easier that entering all the info into the calorie tracker. It also might shame me into eating better, for the sake of your eyes. I am also a visual person, so seeing just how much crap I eat might shock me into making changes.
I have also been making some changes over the past months on my own that I am proud of. I have cut down a lot of my fast food consumption. I am only allowed to eat out 1 week day for lunch. I have done quite well with this, and it has saved me a lot of money. I just wish it would do more for my waist line. I have also started eating out dinner less. I did this for my kids, as well as my wallet. I have been feeding them more real food. We do have hamburger helper or frozen pizza, but these foods are still better than the local fast food drive through. I am also putting more veggies on the kids plates. The Crock pot has been my salvation. I can cook chicken in the crock pot while I am at work, or overnight while I am sleeping. This is great because the last thing I want to do after work is cook for an hour, and waste money using our old oven.
So starting tomorrow, I am going to keep up my fast food challenge, and add in my photo blog food diary. This probably wont be pretty as we have birthdays coming up in January, but this goal is about looking at what I eat and being accountable for it. No more denial! When I meet my blog goal, I will be able to purchase an app for my phone as a reward. Here is a test pic of my Christmas food choices. Eeek
