FOOD is key

Monday, February 25, 2013

I am very upset with myself. For breakfast I had a large bowl of chili with crackers and cheese and a coke. I had it around 930 and my thought was, it will take the place of both breakfast and lunch. Since it was a large meal I wont be hungry till about 2 or 3 and we aren’t going to eat dinner till 7.

I have been telling myself that I need to eat 5 small meals each day. That’s easy to do so why cant I do it?

I grew up where food was just thrown on my plate. I was never shown or told about portion control. My mom knew that its important to eat before going to school but she never really cared what I ate. There were a few times where I had a sundae for breakfast. There are so many bad habits I need to change.

There is a part of me that feels like I’ll never change. That this is going to be too hard for me to do. Then there is the other part of me that knows I can do this. I don’t have to do it all at once. If I slowly change, but not too slow, I can start eating and thinking more healthy.

Friday is day 1 of my 3 month challenge. I have the rest of this day and 3 more days to get ready for it. Friday when I get up Im going to stretch, do the kickboxing video and the booty ball workout. Later in the day im going to stretch some more, take a walk, and do my resistance band DVD that Ive had for over a year now.

In order for me to do this I need to eat right. After todays “breakfast” I felt sluggish, blah, and just didn’t want to move. Since then I have been drinking water like crazy and starting to feel better. When Im done with the housework I plan to sit here and work on my meals. I HAVE to plan out the meals if I want to keep up with my challenge. Food really does affect everything that you do.

    A suggestion: plan your meals, prepare them in advance as much as possible. It will take work, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes much easier.
