eating like mom
Monday, August 26, 2013
I'm making progress with consistently exercising and tracking my eating. All good as I feel like I am being accountable for what I am eating.
However, it's shocking how many calories what I am eating is adding up to. Again, no surprise that I'm not losing weight.
Today I had a new idea. What if I eat like my mom eats? Every time I go to visit my mom, I eat what she eats and I feel satisfied (even though I know I am eating way less than when I am home). Now, mom is a very healthy eater. She eats everything in moderation. On days where she goes out , she eats whatever she likes but balances it with eating vegetarian the next day at home.
So, I planned my food as if I was eating at her house....fruit and cereal for breakfast, vegetable soup/half vegetarian sandwich/coffee and small piece of really good chocolate for lunch, 15 almonds and some fruit for snack, grilled fish/corn on the cob/lima beans/kale salad/fresh raspberries with 1/2 cup homemade chocolate pudding.
It was all delicious and satisfying. Its now after dinner, and I feel like having more but I had a lovely dinner and its after 10pm. So I should just tidy up a bit and head to bed.
