Eating "normal" (I think I need to add the quotation marks because normal means different things for different people) is the goal I will focus on most during this challenge.
Previously I blogged that tracking was the way I was to stay accountable in this endeavor, however, tracking is not going make a big enough difference in my quest for a healthy lifestyle.
What I need to work on until "normal" eating becomes routine is.....
I love to cook and I own, shamefully, at least 100 cookbooks. I like all different ethnic foods and my DH & I like to try a variety of cuisines. When you combine the recipes available here on SP and the Web my arsenal is quite impressive.
My next step is to plan. But, sometimes it is somewhat overwhelming.
This week I want to spend the time to plan out some meals.
Breakfast is simple. I have WH toast w/ peanut butter. I read somewhere that it helps that if one of your meals is the same every day there is less temptation and easier to stay within the range that fits your plan.
That leaves lunch and dinner.
So, I will work on this.
I also need to "plan" for the unexpected. I need to have some go-to foods that are already in my pantry or refrigerator to fall back on. Sorry, no carrots for me, though. Back in the old WW days I pretty much turned orange with that go-to food.
So, plan, plan, plan until it becomes habit, habit, habit!
