Planning ahead

Friday, January 24, 2014

so ive been thinking lately that it wouldn't be a bad idea to make out a meal plan for the week so I don't have to stress about what to eat and then I wont make bad choices! Cause it always seems like I do good for a few days then fall off! So I already planned out what im going to eat tomorrow! For breakfast im going to have a bowl of cheerios and a banana. For lunch I might not be home so I might go out to eat if I go somewhere I will get a chicken or taco salad but if I am home ill have an apple with peanut butter! And for dinner im going to have shake n bake chicken, broccoli, brown rice, and maybe cottage cheese! And I am going to start portioning out snacks into bags so I don't over do it! I have been debating on whether or not I should go talk to dietician! I do good one week then I mess up for a couple days! I think I just need someone to explain to me on how much I should be eating and portion control cause during the day I end up barely eating then over eat at dinner and go crazy with snacks at night! LOL

Just a random blog!

    Planning ahead definitely helps me. I plan each day in the morning so if I need to adjust anything I can and then I usually eat that way for about a week so I just copy and paste my meals and make any adjustments if I need to. I find the daily nutrition feedback under reports here on sparkpeople to be extremely helpful. In the beginning I just aimed to get my percentages right. Of course it's never perfect, but I try to get in the same area.

The time of day that I have the hardest time with is in the morning so my breakfast is like two snacks. Maybe try eating two meals smaller meals at night? Just a thought. You're doing great and sounds like you are making great food choices!

    I find that planning ahead actually helps me figure the portion control piece out. I start with my total calories for the day, then divide that by 5 since that's the number of times I eat in a day. That gives me a rough idea of how many calories I should be eating with every "meal." From there, I just try to get in both some carbs and protein, and to vary my fruits/veggies. Once you've tried it a few times, I really think you'll get the hang of it.

Way to go!
