Day Four

Friday, May 18, 2012

Well I just finished my lunch halfway through day four. A small/medium lettuce & spinach salad. "Borrowed" some lite salad dressing from a coworker since all I had in the frig were heavy creamy dressings. It's been a challenge to figure out how much of each thing I'm eating, but it's starting to feel normal to look at the nutritional facts of everything.

On Wednesday (day 2) I had purchased some organic almonds and some cajun sesame sticks for snacks from the health food store. Once I looked up the nutrition data on the sesame sticks, they aren't quite so healthy. BUT they are really spicy so if I eat just a few, then I HAVE to drink some water to save my mouth. I will be using them for that purpose. I have never been a big water drinker.

This afternoon will be my first trip to the store to get lots of fresh fruits and veggies as well as other stuff. I can't wait to try some of the great healthy recipes. I will be reading labels!

I am looking forward to a busy weekend getting stuff done around the house and yard. We are doing a lot of updating, painting, remodeling in and out. It's work and it's exercise. I will still get my walks and strengthening in as well.

Have a great weekend!

    I carry a little snack bag of almonds in my purse so I am if I am tempted by the "fast food" sirens when I am in town running errands I can reach for my little snack. It works for me...

    Sounds like you are motivated and are putting together a good plan to meet your goals. Best wishes on your journey.

    Have a nice weekend.
