continuing on clean eating

Friday, February 08, 2013

Well I am pretty proud of myself this week.I have made healthier choices in eating and drinking. Although My mother in law is out to sabotage me!! God love her,she brings us groceries from time to time(she knows we struggle and she has such a helping heart) But she brings all the soda and cookies and all that kind of great wonderful bad for you stuff!! I gave up soda about a yr ago. I do have one from time to time,but i don't normally keep it in my house. Well mt dew is my favourite! She brought up 12 packs of it and pepsi!!! I wanted to hug her and say thank you mt dew is my fav...but on the other hand i wanted to smack her and say do you realize what you've just done! I did hug her,because she is always thinking of us and it was sweet of her!

So wed night Jacob feel asleep at 8pm and i thought to myself its tv time i can watch whatever i want with no interruptions,and why not make some food to go with it! see i associate food for all of my moods. If i want to get cozy on the couch i like a snack to go with it,If I am stressed i want bakery,and on it goes!! So I put a little pizza in the oven,and not even thinking,I get a bowl out and put sour cream and onion chips in it and to top it off i pour one of those mt dews into a cup! I took about 4 sips,then it hit me! What am I doing??? I don't need all of this...I'm really not even that hungry! So I don't like to throw away food,but I dumped the soda down the sink and got a water,and i put the chips back in the bag!! I did have some pizza,but I am making better choices now!! And for the most part I have had healthy meals this week,and eating more fruits and veggies. The veggies is tough for me,i just dont really like much of them,but I am going to try. I read in a magazine that the more you try them,your taste buds will change.

I feel pretty good,less bloated,and I lost 2 lbs!! I really have not even switched oil's and dairy and all that yet,I am going to use up what I have and then when i shop i will start out slow like using almond milk and hartzlers milk and real butter and so on. But the past few nights I have felt dizzy. Not like i am going to faint,but just like I am tipsy or something. And no i have not been drinking! I feel dizzy in my head like it is spinning and i feel like my body wants to lean to the right side. Weird feeling! I think it could be lack of caffeine...I don't know! I have not had any sweets (like cookies pastry choc stuff) I do have low blood sugar,it was real bad when i was younger. I will see what happens...if it continues i will see my doctor.

I am excited to go shopping and start making the switch to more fresh healthy foods! I will admit my family is processed food junkies,and I want it to stop!!! I just hope my hubby will be on board and support me on this!

    Until you get comfy with veggies, try making muffins with them, such as carrot or chocolate zuchini. Good luck!
