I've done well so far this week. Curry I batch cooked over the weekend, roasted beets or sweet potatoes, cara cara oranges, brazil nuts, yogurt with blueberries (expensive this time of year, but there was a sparkpeople article saying berries are one of the best nutrients-for-cost foods, so I'm rationalizing). Now is when I'm in trouble - my curry and oranges and berries are gone, and I need to go to the store before cooking again, but it'll take me 15 minutes each way to get there, and the State of the Union starts in 54 minutes. If I wait it'll be too late and I won't want to cook. Guess I should be on my way to the grocery story instead of doing more screen time, eh?
I would also like to be a buddy. I bring my lunch to work every day and it is wonderful. I've saved a lot more money and I know what I'm eating is good for me. Once a month I do go out with friends. You'll do this. Just remember you are on a journey and it is one day at a time.
I was a member of this team when I first joined SparkPeople and then dropped out because I had more teams than I could keep up with. My first start losing weight was realizing I was getting breakfast almost daily from Dunkin' Donuts , and stopping that. I don't even LIKE junk food, but it's quick and available (and ridiculously expensive!) Now I've faded back into those wretched egg and cheese croissants (AKA lard bricks) and although my weight is holding at my goal weight , I don't FEEL good, and I don't like what I'm eating. I eat well if I pack my lunch the night before , but if I get to work with out a brown bag, I'll eat the crap they serve in the lunch room (it's even worse than Dunkin' Donuts) . Anybody else for whom this sounds familiar? I'd love to find a buddy who would expect to hear from my every evening saying that I've packed a good lunch , and who will harass me about it if I haven't. I will cheerfully return the favor.
