HI Ho Everyone and happy Sunday Or monday if you are on the other side of the world in Australia or china
So yesterday was a bad day... i sucked down a bunch of cheese.
I had a taste of something while we were at Costco and Blargggh! Obviously I have issues with cheese and pretty much most packaged food! Anyway back to the basics today and pushing forward with my goals.
SO more tweaking is going on with my diet... at least there is a plan for this week. I was reading that post Jeff made about amounts of food.. and realized I may have been sabotaging myself by not eating the right amounts of stuff. anyway the plan is 2 cups of a starchy vegetable(Sweet potatoes or yucon golds) 2 cups of either salad or veggetables and 1 fruit at each meal, or 2 cups of a whole grain and 1 cup of fruit. So today and from now on at least thru the holidays Sundays will be preping food for the week.
So today I am making the squash pear soup, a pot of beans, a vegetable soup(zuccinin greens carrots etc) salads ready to grab. enough sweet potatoes and yukon golds for the whole week so I just have to grab what I need. And some small jars of vegetable soup to tide me over should I need a nosh of something.
Fridays will be refrigerator soup day so I can use up what ever I need to. that will be enough soup for Friday and Saturday.
Of course the best layed plans and all that... but I really do want to make it through the holidays with out gaining any or much weight.. Losing weight would be the best of both worlds.
Yesterday for exercise I did walking and some knee and arm strengthening exercises with my stretch bands.
Food so far today is 2 cups normandy blend on bottom of plate, 1.5 cups sweet potatoes on top of that and then 3/4 cup chopped apple on the top of all that. Very yummy! and now my tummy is full but not too stuffed.
I will be processing all my squash from the veggie garden today.. loading it in the freezer. It has been a good garden season all in all and I am hoping to see at least some goodies from the winter garden too. I ordered my Austrian peas for cover crop in 3 beds and I even ordered a package of Kale (Yay) so i can have a lovely variety of fresh greens from my garden. Some of the stuff I planted last weekend is already sprouting out.. so cute.. i love seedlings they are really so cute!
Okay enough goofing around.. got a lot to do today including vacuuming up all the spiders trying to take up residence inside for the winter.
