Jan 3 - Small Steps

Thursday, January 03, 2013

SO how I feel right now. Trying to slowly make healthier choices in my eating. Last night was taco night, made mine with just a few chips, lots of lettuce, some meat, a little cheese and 1T sour cream. Quite yummy, not the most filling but we had a choir potluck that night too so I was saving some room, we brought a vege tray...the only healthy item served that night...LOL

Tonight after worship team practice, we plan on hitting the gym before going home. I'm excited. Don't care if it's swimming laps or walking on a treadmill, it'll be moving my butt which is what needs to happen more often.

So far I've managed to cut back to only 1 cup of coffee per day, down from 2-3. Brought instant oatmeal into work as well as yogurt for breakfasts cause I can't seem to eat before I leave the house (40 min drive). And have packed myself leftovers for lunch the past two days I've been back, so eating a bit healthier, but more importantly not spending money on fast food.

Today's breakfast was 1 cinnamon/apple oatmeal pkt and 1 cup coffee w/sf creamer.
Today's lunch is leftover green bean casserole, and some homemade chili.
Also have an orange and popcorn if I need a snack.
Dinner i'm not to sure about

Down a bit from monday in my unofficial weigh in this morning (keeps me on track). I'm excited to see what the rest of the week hold for me.

Keep up the good work everyone!!

    GREAT steps! Sounds like you are doing well in the healthy eating category and joining the Y with your family and using it daily (when possible) will help to keep you motivated. Your upcoming fast sounds interesting - I'm glad to hear you are doing it as a family. Good luck purging your house of the "not included foods/drinks" will help immensely.
