Trying to find a long term way of eating
Friday, October 14, 2016
I really hate tracking. I hate counting calories. I hate counting how many steps I take or try to figure out what the conversion rate is for various activities.
Lately I've been just trying to find a way to get a little healthier lifestyle, one I can do long term. I have made a couple of changes that may be doing a little good, and definitely won't hurt. First, I'm getting out more with other people. Even if it's just to the grocery store, and I only need a loaf of bread, I can still do a mile or more by going up and down all the aisles. Second, I've cut back a lot on meat. Not eating it every day, not eating multiple meals in a day. I still have plenty of dairy and eggs, beans and so on for protein. But without basing my meals around meat, I'm eating a lot more vegetables, and the protein becomes a secondary choice. Or a non-issue. I'm not becoming a vegetarian, I'm just eating more vegetables. So far so good. Lost a couple of pounds.
