HOW IS YOUR HEALTHY NUTRITION MONTH GOING?
Monday, March 14, 2011
Well I'm doing much better and learning a lot. I also have learned a lot from the quizzes that they have placed on the points page. I actually learned that a serving of meat is only 3oz and not the 4-6 oz that I would eat sometimes. Not all the time. It's important just like making the correct moves during workouts, to eat the correct portion control. I have decided that I will load up on the green vegetables that can be considered a FREE food. That's why I think a salad before a meal with out all the heavy dressing is the best weapon against too big of a protein serving.
During this month I am also working on eating more and more vegetables especially the ones that I don't eat a lot such as asparagus. As always I'm working on getting my 8 glasses of water per day.
Making a better choice in the type of food that I eat is very important for me. I want to eat enough that it is filling and not calories that contribute nothing but useless extra calories when I could have eaten a serving of brown rice or mashed sweet potatoes. It's a conscience choice and ours to make for success. This is the beginning of our entire lifestyle change.
May you have a GREAT week in every area of your life. You are ABLE to take the steps needed to be a success. One day at a time and one step at a time! I love you!
