Winging it

Sunday, August 11, 2013

I think I did pretty good winging it yesterday. I was really mindful of my eating and choices. Still I wish that I could have tracked to the "t" yesterday.
I wonder... after a while of getting to the goal will we always have to have a tracker in hand or will we all just start thinking and eating like slim people always do? When do we get to the permanent point of eating to survive not surviving to eat?

I think it is funny how even the President's wife has made it one of her goals for a healthier America, yet junky food is still the cheapest to buy... I wonder why the leaner cuts of meat and the organic healthier foods are not as within the average to lower income bracket consumers reach as are the less healthier foods?
With the help of my husband, we have made it a goal to find healthier ways of eating within our budget (which isn't much). Due to the rising cost of good cuts of meat, we are seeking non-meat alternatives that meet the healthy criteria. It is kind of fun and we are feeling healthier.

Another thought on my mind.. why can't plus size clothes be inexpensive, well made, and designed to make plus size people look good rather than look like plus sized people in a skinny people design? I wish I had a lot of money, I would design clothing that was flattering to plus size people that didn't cost an arm and a leg and that didn't have unflattering cuts or horizontal stripes. I realize that most of us (at least on here) do not want to be a plus size anymore, but it still would be a great confidence booster if clothing was made more for us in mind that we could afford to buy while we are here.
That is all for my random thoughts today. :)

    That is some really great points you bring up. Why should it cost more to be healthy and to live a healthy life style? emoticon emoticon emoticon
