Bragging on myself...

Thursday, June 07, 2007

I'm feeling SO PROUD of myself today, because not only did I do my strength training for the first time since coming back from vacation, but I've already eaten 2 fruit servings and 1 veggie serving today. I know that the FDA recommended amount of fruits and veggies has got to be more than that, right? But it's been a struggle for me so my goal has been 2 of each, each day. :D Yesterday I did the same. So I'm getting closer. I've got to incorporate veggies into my dinners better. Dinner is the worst meal of the day, usually because I'm tired, don't feel like cooking, and/or, I'm trying to make something the DH is interested in eating. Which is not usually the healthier options. I'm looking forward to cooking the Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas again this weeked, although I couldn't find the low carb tortillas, so I'll have to add it as a new recipe.

ANYWAY. :) I'm at least starting to feel like I'm back on the wagon a bit.

I've also dug out this NALGENE bottle from the closet to take to work today. It's 32 oz, so if I drink two of those I've got my 8 cups in for the day, so that's cool. I still want an SP water bottle as well. And I want a shirt. But like... a small. :D As a reward for the future. :D That'd be cool.

    you're doing great! i've kept 2 veggies daily as a goal of mine since i started - it's so easy for me not to have them...so as long as i get a point for it - i'm a little more motivated - good for you!!! i love fruit so i dont struggle getting 3,4,5 servs a day in of that - i know it's hard come dinner time - i like making salads - like a broccoli salad i make days in advance - or coleslaw - so that i'm sure i'll get a serving of veggies with my dinner without having to prep it - even a green salad made a couple of days ahead - when you have 5 min one evening - it works for me - keep up the great work!!!
