All this food tracking is driving me nuts!!!
I get my protein right, my calcium is too low.
I get my fat right, my fiber is too low!
I cant ever seem to get just the right amount of nutrients in food and still stay under calorie range.
Tweak my menu and still end up having to tweak it again.
But at least I am eating healthy. And walking once again. I walked 3.6 miles on Sunday and 3.4 today.
Saturday I didnt have my tracker, but I walked at the flea market, alot, for at least an hour.
Of course, it is stop and go, wait in line.
But I enjoyed being outside, in the sun, with NO wind for a change.
Now, the weather change.
Feeling pretty good this day. Have the dreaded doctors appointment on Wednesday, but not dreading it too much.
I am doing the best I can....well, back to tweaking my menu.
I really need to find more fiber!!!

    I plan each meal- one fruit, 2 or three whole grain choices ( whole wheat etc), and protein and a low fat dairy. I get an average of 30 grams of fiber out of this. The suggestion to add flax seed is an excellent one! Keep tweaking, you will find the right combo! The important thing is that you are tracking. Remember to look at the weeks averages. Our health is built one day at a time, but being healthy is a longer look.

    If you need more fiber, try adding flax seed to your meal.
