Thank you for the helpful comments and emails about yesterday’s weigh in post. I’m trying to figure out the head stuff. The weight loss is going well, as today I weighed in again and I’m down to 205.6. Slowly going down, woohoo!
I’ve been doing well with tracking on My Fitness Pal lately. Almost everything has been tracked besides some dinners eaten at restaurants, which is a success for me.
One thing that has helped is writing the amounts of food I use in meals on the fridge as I go.
This doesn’t take much time and I don’t have to remember anything for when I put in the calories later. Since I often make up recipes and cook on the fly this has been the only thing I’ve found to work. It makes it so much easier when I go off script from a recipe and start making adaptations.
I’ve also been shopping really well. I haven’t meal planned or shopped for a full week in forever but my thrice weekly shopping trips have been super healthy.
Here’s what I got today:
- chicken breast
- ground turmeric
- frozen winter veggies (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and green beans)
- navel oranges
- mini bananas
A good group of items. I originally went to the store for the chicken and veggies because I made Thai green curry for lunch yet again. It’s my new favorite dish and it really doesn’t even take that long to make. I love it.
All things are going well here. The crazies are easing up a bit and I’m feeling more of my normal self.
I’m off to make the best of it! :)
