There hasn’t been any movement on the scale yet (I’ve been checking), but my eating has been better this week. It hasn’t been perfect, and that’s okay. Except for last night, all my meals this week have been prepared at home.
I even cooked dinner on Tuesday night and will again tonight. I hope my husband doesn’t have a heart attack as I am sure that having me cook two nights in the same week is sure to be quite a shock. It hasn’t been anything fancy; I’m keeping it simple right now. Once I get back in the swing of cooking on a regular basis, which let’s face it may take some time, I may look to cook more adventurous recipes or at least with more variety.
Since Monday, I have also been tracking my eats. I’m hoping this effort helps me stick to my goal of 1500-1800 calories per day. By the looks of things, not that I needed myfitnesspal to tell me this, I need to start cutting back on the sodium rich foods. My swollen legs are also a good indicator of this. Boy, are they swollen.
There is a lot of work to be done on my eating habits (understatement). I am hoping this week will be the start to some of the changes I need to make. Eating at home the next few nights would be a huge improvement over last week.
Today is going to be a busy, stressful work day. Never mind that I will be crossing my fingers all day and hoping that I actually cook dinner as planned tonight instead of making some comment about eating out on the ride home from work today. The commute home is a weak time for me.
Hope you’re having a great week so far. Hang in there, Friday is approaching.
