second shot at getting back on track

Friday, February 03, 2017

I has been a good week. I have exercised everyday and got in at least 3 miles of walking. I attended two oa meetings and have done my readings each night. I think I need to carve out a time to do them in the morning but with my very busy schedule that is hard to do. maybe put by my bed and read before I get up and then meditate on them while walking.

the food was much better but still need to work on not eating out so much. I made foil meals at night with about 3 oz protein ( chicken or fish) along with veggies ( onions asparagus and potatoes or carrots) this is working out well as I don't have to spend much time cooking ( which I hate since only one to cook for) have gotten two cookbooks about cooking for one. one is a little fancy for me but will look at the second one this weekend. still three days are very hard for me. start out about 8:30 in the morning and don't get home til 9 at night which requires two meals out that day. I have protein shakes and tuna foil packs in the car but get very tired of those. will look for a small cute cooler to see if that might help. still so much easier and if honest tastes better to go to a fast food place.

goal this week as summary :

1. emotional do reading in am before getting out of bed and meditate on it while walking
continue to attend two oa meetings per week and do the journaling

2. cook 4 nights per week. continue to find recipes that are very quick and healthy (lots of protein and low carb and sugar)
look for more ways of finding better fast food choices that I can eat with my restrictions ( no salads ) options are kids meals with no bread if sandwich and apple slices not fries sides of meat balls and grilled chicken
no pasta or pizza places.

    Good job. ND is starting to post some recipes in the group- I have done a lot of pre-cooking and freezing as I work long days, too. emoticon

    Congratulations on your effort, recognizing the obstacles, and thinking of plans to overcome them.
    Do you have a crock pot/slow cooker? Would fixing a meal in that be of interest? Some recipes would give you enough for more than 1 meal--freeze for later, store for next day? Wish you the best.

    Wonderful job, great to plan ahead. I love having a small handful of almonds as a nice quick power snack.

    Good job....And try out some of the "fancy" recipes. All of us on this journey deserve some fancy.😊

    You are going in a good direction, my friend. I love that you are experimenting with different meals and already got yourself some cook books to try out other recipes. Sometimes as we have to plan living with restrictions, other options come up that might surprise you. When I have the crazy shifts I do, I always pack my lunches, because I tend to just head straight for the Drive Thru if I don't. One of my go to meals has become frozen berries, plain greek yogurt, chia seeds and a splash of Maple syrup. I just fill it into a mason jar, which makes it also easy to measure out. Others are cut apple/pear, a handful of dry roasted almonds, a wedge of cheese and a slice of good quality high fiber bread (no sugar). There are lots of ideas out there, I never even considered. Is there any inspiration in the Spark Recipes? Do you generally like to eat a warm meal out? Do you have a microwave at work?
