good start...


Monday, April 07, 2014

I'm still crazy busy, so I'm sorry I'm not around as much to check in on all of you!! Thank you so much for your comments & support; I know I haven't returned the favor much lately.

Still working on my mindfulness of what works for me right now.

I DID go shopping on Sunday, and instead of getting all excited about all the fresh veggies I would love to prep and cook and feel all healthy about (which would end up rotting in my fridge!) I got practical:

1) turkey breast, roasted for sammiches (done!)
2) "grab and go" fruits and veggies - already washed & cut up carrots and celery, mini peppers (which I will wash for each day so they don't get moldy from being damp), and easy to grab, no-prep fruits - apples, oranges, bananas.
3) extra healthy but can be pre-prepped - pre washed & cut kale + one of my favorite dressings I already had made in the fridge.

So check me out!



That's 5 servings of kale salad + 3 days of carrots & celery. The turkey was in the oven; once done I let it cool then made my sandwiches.

This week will be busy but I feel super prepared. Each night I will make my sandwiches (lunch & dinner, as I'll be running right from work to the theater!) and wash any additional produce if needed.

This morning I packed 2 big bottles of water, an empty bottle & some cold brew iced tea bags, 2 sandwiches, kale salad, my salad bar salad I forgot to eat for dinner last night, an apple, two mini oranges, a banana, a container each of carrots & celery, and a container of mini peppers. Lunch, dinner, snacks!

I had time to make my blended protein shake this morning, but for mornings I don't I don't mind the powder plain in water, which is quick, or I can do that + a half PBJ made the night before.

I'll let you know how the week goes with this new plan!

Ignoring the scale right now; I need to get my habits under control before that has any chance of changing, and I know I'll just fall into destructive thought patterns if I let myself.

Saturday is my birthday, so there will probably be some overeating there (I'm throwing a tamale-making party, haha) but all the snacks will be fresh veggies - munchy ones + more kale salad, so it shouldn't be too terrible.

This week is all food focus. Next week I have fewer work travel days (work travel day = have to leave my house ~6:30am, so that means no AM gym) so next week I will focus on adding some early morning gym days to that. Baby steps!

I hope you all have a lovely week. emoticon

    I did pretty much the same thing. Except the kale. I just can't do it. I DID get salad stuff, and I'm learning to eat RICE (under protest, but I'm learning) and other healthier stuff. I did forget the spinach, but I can get that tomorrow on the way home from the pool.
