The meal planning and prep work that I did this weekend has helped my eating this week. So far, most meals have been prepared at home. That’s right, I said most meals, not all. Because I didn’t finish all the prep work that I had wanted to do this weekend, my laziness won out a couple of times and either I didn’t pack a lunch or I didn’t fight my temptations to eat out.
I’m eating somewhat better than I have in the last few weeks. I mean I am actually eating vegetables again and I don’t mean potatoes. I even tried a new vegetable. Well, not really new. As a kid, my mom used to steam brussel sprouts often. I didn’t care for them but would usually digest a few to make her happy. Lately, everywhere I look I am reading about people roasting brussel sprouts and how much they like them. After weeks of buying them only to not use them and throw them in the trash come garbage day, I roasted some Tuesday night. While I thought they tasted better than I remembered from childhood, I was disappointed and will not be trying them again anytime soon. At least now I know and can quit wasting money and food.
Tomorrow is another chance to eat well and on plan. I’m looking forward to it. The fact that it is a Friday is just a bonus. Hope you enjoy your Friday as well.
