I typically try and cook large meals when I can so that we can eat them twice or I can take them to work and eat. Depends on the weather and sports really. My long term goal is to continue meal planning (tonights project) and cooking in large amounts when I can.

I have to quit cooking such large meals that I am stuck with leftovers that I get sick of eating. Some freeze quite well, but others don't. I need to plan better to cook more often, but in smaller portions.

I am at the point now that proccessed food does not seem appealing at all, still have some difficulty with staying 100% with it but by cooking my meals in advance helps so much, I made garden chicken salas for my lunches next week and chicekn alfredo for dinner using whole wheat paste and light alfredo, have fruits and veggies for sides and to snack on, a few water bottles in fridge and larger ones for workouts and while I am at home.

self control is knowing you can and deciding you wont

I will continue to plan my meals, find ways to cut fat and sugar from the recipes, using substitutes. We eat out a bit, so will have to make healthier choices when I do. I have been trying a new Spark recipe every week and I will continue to do this,I have also been choosing fruits and veggies I haven't tried before, adding some variety to my menus!
It seems to be a common theme with the long term goal to continue with the planning of meals. I have to admit that it's the thing that I've not mastered and need to continue to work on. I need to account for more "left over days." I find that I have food that needs to be eaten before I have to toss it and then my meal schedule is thrown off and I get discouraged.
I'll continue to refine the process until it feels like second nature!
That's my goal, too! Planning everything from breakfast to dinner including all snacks insures that i will have all the food i need on hand. it makes life sooo much easier, takes out all the guess work and helps me stick to healthy choices.
I already cook at home a lot. It just isn't practical to take 5 people out to eat very often. It costs way too much. So my goal is to continue to plan my meals for the week. If my meals aren't planned, that is when I end up eating out or fixing a quick unhealthy dinner.
