Today hasn't been a very good day. My motivation I am struggling with, as well as my emotions today.
I had a good weekend, but my food habits were terrible this weekend! I tried for the most part to pay attention to what I was eating, but I know I ate a lot more FAT than I usually do. I had way to many starches and carbs this weekend too. DH was in from out of town, he has been training in Houston, and I guess i'm having a hard time figuring out the medium between our eating habits. I did, however, notice it affecting my mood and my energy and for the first time I felt guilty about what I ate. I gave up fried foods and sweet drinks for this month, my effort at changing my habits little by little. I ordered a sweet tea, out of habit, and had to order water because I felt like I was drinking straight sugar!! So I find that a great thing, its only been since the first of the month and I already couldn't stand to drink anything sweet!
Hopefully this week I can get my breakfasts, lunches and dinners all planned out nicely and not be cooking for an hour every night!! I find this very difficult to do, and we are tight with money right now because of this new job leaving a week or so without an income, so I am trying to make everything stretch!
I am also having a hard time remembering to snack between meals! I think I am having even a harder time coming up with snacks to eat during the day that have protein in them.
