Busy Weekend = Not So Healthy Diet

I find the less planning I do, the more spontaneous the time, the less likely I make the best choices.  If I have a plan, sometimes I don’t stick to it exactly, but if I have a plan to start, things go much better.

I’m starting out this week better.  Went grocery shopping last night and have healthy food for this week.  I know it will help my motivation.  All the breakfasts and lunches are planned.  Check number two.  Now, get the dinners and snacks undercontrol and I’ve got a great week ahead.

Back on Track with the Healthy Focus

Last night I was able to get back on track.  After a big breakfast of egg beaters and bagel with cheese, a light lunch of progresso soup (wow it tasted salty this time) and a fiber bar, I was able to finish the day with 2 boca burgers on skinny arnold’s with a big tomato and no fat cheese. 

And now I’m good to go this morning.  Back in the groove. Back on track. Back in the saddle. 

Having a “good” day makes it easy to get back on the horse.  Ha ha.

Just keep tracking that chart

Filling in the weight and the dates once a week is helping me keep on track.

Just filling in the dates and the weights helps keep that slope heading down, not up.  Gotta maintain the motivation.

Have a new pair of shorts hanging outside my closet.  They’ll look good with a couple more pounds gone.

Had green beans, broccoli roasted in the oven for lunch.  Sweet potato for snack/dessert.  Yum!  Shorts. Here I come!

Dealing with the Pain of Arthritis? That’s Motivation

I have the early stages of arthritis showing up already in my hands. Avoiding bad arthritis is part of my motivation to have a healthy diet.

I want to lose the weight and keep it off because, just like the LA TIMES reports:

• If you’re overweight, try losing a few pounds. When you walk, your knee bears the pressure of five times your body weight, Gillespie says, so losing 5 pounds will take 25 pounds off your knee.

Twenty five pounds… that’s like two or three milk gallons right?
