I always do my best to look up the nutrtion information before I go to a resturant, find something I can eat and not feel guilty about. Also going light through the other meals in the day can create a little balance in the tracker!

Do your best!

Thanks, soups and stews are good idea. Good luck with your goals this week! I hope I can plan well during work this week---I have lots of lunch time meetings which means eating out---will try to make good choices.....

What sort of tastes are you attempting to accommodate for? Are they looking for meat so many nights a week or something like that? If you're like us, you're expecting snow and crummy temps this week, so I enjoy making soup! A big hearty soup with lots of beans and be tasty and filling. Chili, Chickpea, Ham and Bean, all yummy!

This week, it's my spring break, so I have a few goals associated with not having the madness of school in my life. I would like to get up every morning at 6:30, do yoga for at least 5 days this week, I would like to make sure I get 10k steps a day, and create healthful meals this week for my boyfriend and I to eat!

This is my first post, 2 weeks into the plan and feeling pretty good so far ! This topic caught my attention because I am going to do some food shopping today and thinking about the week ahead and how to ensure I stick with the plan. The pull of accomodatiing my husband and son's food preferences is also a challenge (without making 2 different dinners,etc). Tonight I am going to make the Skillet Lasagna recipe I found on the recipe site, and another night I think I will make the Slow-cooker Vegetable curry (any other ideas?). Also, I will try to stock up on some on-the-run breakfast ideas. Hoping for a good week ahead !

Sounds like a great idea, Etroyer, What sort of dishes are you looking to modify? I do enjoy a good time in the kitchen, and could possibly help to make some suggestions!

This is a great idea for a post. Thank you!

This week my father came down to visit and whenever other people seem to be in the house, my healthy living motivation goes out the window. I know better, but we eat out more and I try to cook food "they" will like in order to make them happy. Instead of eating healthy food that I know would be good for us all and also delicious, I reverted back to full fat family favorites. Luckily, I held steady this week, but it's a bad life pattern.

For the next week, I plan to try finding healthier but delicious versions of the these old family favorites in order to have them ready for when my parents visit again.

Happy Sunday everyone!

I think analyzing progress and modifying plans on a weekly basis can be helpful. So in reflection, did anything go wrong this last week? What have you learned from it? As a result, how do you plan to modify your plan for next week?

I was reviewing my protein intake for the week. Most days I was under by at least 5 grams. I know protein is an important macro to consume, and will keep me healthy! I made some simple switches in my diet, I added peanut butter to my breakfast, instead of butter. I started drinking Soy milk when I'm eating meals instead of fruit juice. I'm going to do my best to find a new source of protein I can add to my diet without overwhelming my schedule. I usually eat a lunch meat sandwich for lunch, so I may just up my intake from the 2 oz serving to a 3 oz sandwich. Minor changes will add up overall.

(I am a bit picky about my sources though, I prefer to eat vegetarian, and if I do eat meat, I usually look for organic, and happy animals)

Remember everyone!
It doesn't take a new year to make a change to your life, it takes a Monday!
Do your best this week, everyone!
