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.

    Fruit, vegetables, beans, and nuts are so good for you. People don't give leafy green vegetables enough credit for all the protein they supply.
    Good for you, increasing the walking. I'm retired now and much more sedentary because of health issues, but I can still get up and move, even if it is slower that it used to be. Do what we can do!

    There's nothing wrong with starting simple. I actually think it's the best way to start. Keep focusing on eating healthier and moving more without putting to much pressure on yourself and know that you CAN do it!
