Evaluation of my nutrition plan
Saturday, March 30, 2013
When I take a look at my nutrition plan I see that there are some changes I still want to make to my diet and I also want to make some occasional things a normal way of doing things.
I haven’t been eating well within my range. I need to work to get back on track and eat within my calorie range.
I have increased my veggies by eating salad and carrot sticks for work lunches. I have had protein shakes for breakfast mixed with fruit and have had fruits for snacks or to go with my lunches during the week and have been surprised that I have been ok through breakfast and lunch. I have found that by the time I am heading home and getting home I am starving, and eat an early supper. If supper isn’t easily prepared or ready when I get home, I have been losing my mind and throw off my day.
This has been something I have been noticing.
I am doing well with the water intake.
In the past few weeks I have had some unhealthy things in the house which has added some temptation. Such as a jar of frosting in my fridge. I would grab a spoon of it here or there. Then I decided not to indulge and ran it under water to clean the container for recycling. The container was about half full and the frosting did not break down!!! I soaked it changed the water, and it didn’t go away. I then realized – What am I putting in me!!!! I was disgusted to see this.
I have been making sugar cookies lately and so there have been a lot of that around. I have eaten them here and there. I made a ton of them to test how they are if they are frozen. Then I sent the cookies with my husband to his work. His co-workers were very happy, and I was happy to have them out of the house. I am going to be making these cookies for Abi’s graduation party at the end of June, which is why I have had so many because I am trying to see what happens if I make them in advance, and then I made them with the girls for St. Patty’s Day, and then we had them before that for Christmas….so they have just been here a lot.
I still like my fried or salty foods. I make popcorn once a week and I eat way too much of it. Sometimes that is my dinner on Thursday nights. Or I get a rotisserie chicken and a salad from the grocery store for my Thursday night dinner.
I have made a lot of good choices, but I make a lot of bad choices too. I think I feel like for all the good choices I make I should be ok when I indulge, but that is not the case. My bad choices negatively impact the good choices I have been making to the point where I stay at a standstill in my weight loss journey.
This inventory has been very helpful, but it is also sad because I still haven’t changed my diet enough to lose this weight. It is very hard being the only person on a diet in my home, and I haven’t had success in this because I haven’t put my mind to it and I haven’t fought hard enough through it. If weight loss is mental and not physical…where is my mind at???
