New unforseen challenge....

Thursday, February 06, 2014

Well, I certainly did not expect this. While some people may go: "You're complaining about ths?", keep in mind that I'm trying to lose weight in a healthy manner, not starving myself.

I work four days a week, 10 hour days, but I'm gone from my place for 12 hours because of commute. For the past couple of weeks at work I usually had enough for breakfast, lunch and dinner (within my calorie range), but not for the past few days. I got two cans of soup (being only 90 and 140 calories only, respectively), and thought it was enough for lunch. Just breakfast, lunch and snacks while at work, no dinner. Apparently, thinking that I can handle only having less than 600 calories between the time I get up (7:30am) to the time I get home (8:30pm) is a VERY bad idea. Several repercussion to that include: me wanting to eat more when I get home to compensate (haven't done that. Yet.), and me being cranky. Both of those things aren't exactly beneficial.

Which I guess leads me to the point that I've been avoiding: I have to cook more instead of being lazy. I hate cooking, and it takes too long; I would much rather bake (I can at least do something while it's in the oven). I've been cooking for 15 years and still hate it. However, if I expect to remake my image into a more healthy one, I will just have to learn how to love it and make healthy, delicous things. Besides, having a garlic roasted chicken with a side of greens and nuts sounds a lot more delicious than just plain canned chicken noodle soup.

    Our local grocery store is happy to cook our food - rotisserie chicken, side dishes, etc. - all with nutrional information on their web site. Maybe you can look into something like that for part of your needs?
