But first – a recap of the first week.
I’ve stopped taking photos of my food. Fell a little by the wayside when the hurricane hit. But I’ve definitely stuck to my new portion size. I’ve also only eaten off a plate and I’ve increased my water intake.
Last night, the boy brought home Chipotle, which is, surprisingly, not all that bad for you as they use fresh veggies and free range, veggie fed meat. Normally, I can eat an entire bowl. But – last night, I removed part of the dish as normal to get to my new portion size. And – what I think was most telling that this is working – I was able to tell when I was full. I ate less than 3/4 of what I normally scarf down like it ain’t no thang.
Chapter 3 involves light exercise – basically working it into your daily routine. I’ve started by parking farther from the building and going for afternoon walks with a colleague.
It also involves upping fruit intake. Not doing great on that one. I’m not big on fruit and I don’t usually keep a lot of it in the house. I do usually keep grapes, some sort of melon and blueberries in the house – but that’s all gone and … we’re a little strapped for cash at the moment. Oh well. I’d still like to work a piece of fruit into every day if I can. I have a much easier time working in the veggies. But, I won’t move on to Chapter 4 until I master Chapter 3, so I really need to take charge there.
It’ll be another week before I measure myself again, but for now, here’s my Week 2 weight:
And aligned goals –
1. Continue light exercise
2. Drink more water
3. Eat at least a serving of fruit every day
Anyone have any tricks for getting in that serving of fruit for a picky eater?
