Meal Planning

Monday, April 29, 2013

So far I'm doing okay with my baby steps. I bought a 4 set of Rubbermaid reusable bottles (my kids took the other 3 but I got my one!) and I just keep refilling that up with water every day. Coffee hasn't been a problem much because I am down to just one K-Cup for a while. As for exercise, I should have held off on that baby step because I forgot about my LEEP and how I'm not supposed to really do anything for 3 weeks, well anything I enjoy. I rode my bike to the store the day before the procedure. 4.4 miles, my body was screaming at me, my lungs were hating me but I felt accomplished and awesome. It was a real "I am woman hear me Roar!" moment. I also enjoy dancing and swimming. Sure I can go walking, and I do my best to stay on my feet through out the day but it's not the same heart racing vigor as the other activities I like. Last night while on the phone with a friend and watching Bitchin Kitchin at the same time I realized I need to start meal planning. The problem is healthy meals that kids will eat! That show last night though had some GREAT ideas. Baked cauliflower tater tots for example! Also a recipe to make some cheese crackers and know what goes into them and how many calories they are! There was even a recipe for turkey burger sliders and some awesome coconut and yogurt fruit pops. So in the next few days, I'm going to come up with a 2 week meal plan. I will take note of what I will need and what I have and stick to my list! I will continue with my water though because I've noticed my body craves it more and more.
