RA! RA! for myself and other thoughts...

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Rough patch there, kept up as much as possible. Exercise went to the wayside for 2 days, but then I sprang back! This has always been my biggest roadblock. Getting back on track after a setback. I DID IT THIS TIME! I am proud of myself (for once).

So for lunch, I picked up a Michelina entree that I *thought* would be good for me on the dash out of the house (kid missed the bus). Looking at it later, EEKS! So, I decided while eating to eat all my "veggies" (I have raw veggies for snack today) before I eat the entree. Well, it seems to have worked for me, because the broccoli is all gone, the water is mostly gone and the entree is still half here. Not sure if this is a good strategy to adopt.

    that's a great strategy! Kind of like what I do when I make dinner for everyone else- I pick a vegetable to cook for myself- a large portion and then just add a small portion of some of the dinner food. So far it is helping me to not feel deprived but still satisfied emoticon

    I always try to eat my veggies first. ESPECIALLY if there's broccoli on the plate. Broccoli is so filling, and it's the GOOD kind of filling, that really sticks with you. Watch those frozen entrees... they tend to be super high in sodium!

    I think that's a good strategy---to eat raw veggies first. They make me feel fuller longer. Sounds like you did good and you're back on track.

    Hey good job on the bounce back -- and great idea on trying to fill up with veggies and water before your less-than-healthy lunch entree. Sounds like you've got a real plan of attack -- keep up the smart choices!
