Convincing myself to cook

I'm not much of a cook, and I live alone, so eating out is the easy solution for me. To talk myself into eating at home more often, I made a SparkStreak goal for myself: "Cook dinner at home" 4 out of 7 days. The last two weeks, I've made it 7/7, and I've lost three and a half pounds! Can't help but think there's a correlation.

Empty dishwasher right away

I never leave clean dishes in the dishwasher; I run it before I leave for work and empty it when I get home. That way, I never have to wonder whether the dishes are clean or dirty. If they're in there, they're dirty.

Make a change today

If you've fallen short on one or more of your goals (as I have), instead of beating yourself up, make a change today. Even if you've fallen short on several, pick one today and intentionally meet it. That may inspire you to meet another. Soon your intentional thinking has you back on track.

Quick meals

I buy bags of individually flash-frozen chicken breasts and frozen veggies and keep them on hand for nights when I don't feel like spending much time cooking. I can cook a healthy, filling, low-cal, low-sodium meal in 10-15 minutes.

Doing the math

When my weight loss slows down and I start to get discouraged, I pull out my calculator. There are 3500 calories in a pound, so even a loss of a pound means a lot of calories burned or not eaten. It helps keep me on track.
