Beginning Weight: 238

I forgot to weigh in yesterday so I am using today’s weight as my beginning weight. I will weigh in again at the end of the month. This isn’t a challenge where the goal is to lose weight; it is becoming a healthier eater. I believe that weight loss with be a natural side affect to changing the way I eat.

Day one did not go well. There was a snickers bar and some brownies. That’s okay. One bad day is not gong to knock me out. It’s a process. It's about learning new ways to deal with things. For instance the brownies, which were left over from small group the night before and should have been thrown out, happened because I got stuck in traffic and it took twice as long to get home. I was feeling a bit stressed and annoyed. Not a good reason to eat I know. I have to learn to handle it differently. I could have walked on the treadmill (it was raining outside) or worked out to a DVD.

Hopefully I can learn from this.

Today had the potential to be off track. I had prepared my food for the day as I do ever morning and packed my cooler. I had to leave 10 minutes early because they are doing roadwork on the street I am off of and I wanted to stop at the ATM and get my weekly cash. In my haste I left my cooler on the counter.

All of my lovely prepared clean foods were left at home.

For the most part clean eating takes a lot of planning and preparing. Food on the fly is not so easy. I stopped at the grocery store and did my best. I picked up some cut up pineapple and plain greek yogurt for breakfast and Amy’s pizza snacks for lunch. As frozen prepared meals go I feel comfortable selecting Amy’s products because they use all organic ingredients have no additives.
