Got way too occupied and didn't get to post yesterday. Part of my time was spent trying to figure out my new jump rope. Let's just say it brought rushing back why I have few fond memories of childhood
. But, I'll keep plugging away at it lol.
One new thing I am working on is keeping a food diary. I try to eat properly and do a pretty good job on the whole, but I know there are some thinks that "sneak" into my diet because I am not accountable for it (i.e. - I don't write it down so it doesn't stare me in the face!
) You know - someone at work brings in cookies or you fudge on the serving sizes of things at dinner, whatever. Also am working more fruits and veggies back into my diet. Got the urge to do this at work on Saturday - a number of folks at the hospital had ordered McDonald's for lunch. I was being good (at the moment, at least) eating my bean soup. Amused myself for a few minutes checking on the web site for nutritional content. We all know how high in fat, calories and sodium fast food can be, but for some real eye-opening shocking numbers, check out the following sites:
One guy who c/o not being able to lose weight had a 2100 calorie lunch between his big mac, super-sized coke and fires, and a McFlurry on top of that. Again, it's all about arming yourself with the knowledge. It's pretty hard to go overboard when you're truly being honest with yourself about what your eating.
Will edit in the recipes after a little bit - gotta get showering
Have a great day!
