Wow... I am doing this wrong....

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

So I just read through a whole bunch of different articles on portion control and how much of what food group to eat per day. Quite interesting, to say the least. Although I have been eating much healthier, my portions are seriously out of whack. I eat a lot of protein; I love meat, it's one of my favorite things. However, this is quite bad when it comes to proper portion control. Additionally, I'm not eating enough fruits and veggies; they usually take up about a fourth of my plate, not half like they should.

So now the game plan is to really be more careful and measure out portions more properly. If I can stick to it I think I will do much better in terms of losing a bit of the extra weight.

I did my workout this morning and while I only made it through two circuits, I felt really good once it was over. I'm hoping that this week will be the week that I increase to three circuits.

I also have a fourth and fifth goal I'm hoping to start either sometime this month or sometime next month. Goal four is to begin doing yoga 1-2 times per week. I miss doing yoga; it made me feel relaxed as well as stretching me out and I think it also benefitted my belly dancing, too. Goal five is to begin doing the couch to 5k plan. Like I said before, I want to be able to overcome my asthma and run in a marathon or something like that. This would please us greatly.

In a very positive mood today. This is a good thing :o)

    You are definitely on the right track. It's all about portion control first, then you can start worrying about fine tuning your nutrition.

    I have this really cool magnet on the fridge, that shows a plate and the portions of different food groups it helps keep me on top of things!
