So the eat healthier thing? How's that going you ask? It's going. Here's the plan so far:
I have been eating healthier. I have decided that wheat tortillas with beans and hot pepper cheese is my new favorite food. I bought some roma tomatoes last night to add to them.
I am the world's biggest grazer. I love to eat bits and pieces all day long. I have brought some healthier snacks to work like crackers and summer sausage, granola and yogurt. I hate yogurt. I make myself eat it. I have found it I put something crunchy in it I do much better. I have began to add some Grape Nuts cereal in it so I get some wheat and barley. Makes me happy!
I still have yet to drink soda. I think I have it licked. I no longer crave it as long as I am not thirsty. The key for me is to constantly have water around. When I get parched I want a soda more than anything!
Other than that I am simply cutting my portion sizes. I know that I do not have the willpower or the time to drastically alter my eating routines. I also know that if I do it will not last.
We are starting a weight loss program at work. It includes monetary penalties for gaining weight. That is a huge motivator in my book. The person who looses the most weight by May 1st wins the money we all paid to join as well as all the penalty money. I am all for that!
Wish me luck!
