Up with veggies, down with nuggets!
Monday, February 18, 2013
I need to get a handle on how I'm eating. I'm eating portions that are too big, and I'm not eating enough fruits and vegetables. The freggie thing is ridiculous, because I love vegetables. I'm just being lazy about planning my meals and snacks and packing my lunches for work. Part of the problem is that I am not giving myself enough time in the morning to get lunch ready, so there are days when I don't pack anything and end up eating the same lunch my students are having that day (which is generally salty, processed crap. Think chicken nuggets and instant mashed potato. Yuck.) What I need to do is take a few minutes in the evening to pack breakfast and lunch, or at least to plan what I am going to pack.
Goals for this week:
~plan or pack lunch each evening after dinner
~log food at least 2 days this week (I hate logging my food. I cook from my own recipes so much that it is really tedious)
~drink a glass of low-sodium tomato juice every day. I love it and I have a jug in my fridge right this minute, so that's no big chore.
~Make a simple vegetable soup that I can add to my meals this week.
Easy, peasy lemony squeezy. I've got this!
