My nutrition so far this week, and on into the future

Saturday, July 03, 2010

As usual, my nutrition this week has not been as good as my exercise. I've always been a picky eater, and of course, a lot of the foods I like are not healthy. So while I've made a lot of improvement in exercising since I've joined SparkPeople, my nutritional improvement is moving much more slowly. I am proud of the improvements that I have made, but it is time for me to step it up. For some reason, the healthy eating issue has really hit home with me this week. I made a good effort to eat more vegetables this week (this is one of my big problems because I don't like many of them). All week long I've been thinking about how I want to really start working on healthy eating. I have been reading some of the nutrition articles and message boards here on SP, and getting ideas. I've been looking through some cookbooks (my own and also at bookstores). I talked to my trainer about it, and he gave me some suggestions. I've also asked my boyfriend to help me eat healthier, because he does that much better than I do. So I think I am really ready to do this now, and I am going to make this my focus for July. I am going to write out some specific goals and plans this weekend, and make this my month to really kickstart my much healthier way of eating.

    Great goal!

    Sometimes planning ahead can help. Since I started planning my between meal snacks for work days, it's been easier to get my fruits & veggies. I usually supplement my lunch with celery, brocolli spears in 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil & vinegar dressing, green or red pepper wedges, baby carrots, or cucumber slices. My afternoon snack is either nuts or Mozzarella cheese sticks with bananas, small box raisens, a few dried appricots, or other fruits.

    Good luck in your goal of developing healthier eating habits.
