Finally started after grocery shopping yesterday. I believe that eating at home from meals I make is critical for success. Now supper time will be the challenge as the urge to go out for something is strongest then. After that I will be making up a bean salad so that I can bag some of it for times when i don't feel like making something. That would satisfy my goal of making a batch meal each week so I have a variety to choose from.
Seeing my doctor this afternoon for results of lab tests taken 2 weeks ago, Timing is interesting as test results will give me another way of monitoring how I am doing with diet and exercise.
Seeing my physiotherapist tomorrow and will ask for ideas for cardio and strength exercises i can do.
Look at that. my stars are all aligning for a good concerted effort. Here's hoping.

    Planning and preparation are key for me. Otherwise, it's too easy to make bad eating choices when I'm hungry with no plan.

I hope your stars keep aligning!

  Thanks Chocohippo (Interesting nickname.) Plan and, to a lesser extent, preparation is a lot of work but SparkPeople provides an excellent resource for reducing the work and providing readily available resources. And Firecom you serve as a good trail blazer. Thanks

    You are so right. I do my best "losing" when I eat meals at home. Planning is a lot of work, but I figure so is going to the doctor to monitor a variety of I'm good with it. I like simple "clean" recipes that don't involve a lot of time or ingredients but taste fantastic. You sound like you're on a roll! Good luck with keeping those stars aligned!
