Exercise vs Food

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I feel like I'm doing pretty well hitting my exercise goals. Now I really need to tackle the one thing that I have the hardest time with - keeping my calories in range. I have been tracking all of my food and trying to hit at least 3 fruits and veggies per day but I very rarely stay within my calorie range. I know what I need to do to eat healthy and I know why I go over my calorie range. Now I just have to use what I know and find some will power to control the sweets I eat, mainly chocolate.

Here's my current plan, which I expect to have to modify more than once, but I'll keep trying until it works:

If I eat healthy all day (3-5 fruits and veggies, no getting overfull at any meal, no alcohol and no other sweets) then I will get 2 pieces of wonderfully awesome Lindt dark chocolate with sea salt before bed!

    Try a smoothie with fruits AND veggies in it! Add a little Stevia, and that makes it sweet and enjoyable! You can get your fruits and veggies in one drink!...Then...ON to the chocolate!

    I also love chocolate. One trick that I found is that chocolate covered strawberries are the height of luxury for me. I'm eating less chocolate, but feeling much more indulgent. Two birds, one stone.
