This Adventure

Saturday, June 21, 2014

I sure wish I would just stay consistent. I know it boils down to just staying committed, persevering, and doing things day by day. It's not some secret pill or potion or a special diet. It's just a matter of eating well, getting off the processed crap, and moving. I know I need to get more sleep. I need to drink more water.

I know what I need to do. This process has not been painless - but not real painful either. I stray and fall off when I start feeling pain. I'd like to see what happens if I just endure through some of the stress - not eating when I feel stress. Taking the time to cook for myself, instead of heading through a drive-thru.

Let's get busy on this adventure.

    I also take one day, usually Sunday as my prep day. If you don't have the right tools for the job, how do you get the job the done. Imagine trying to hammer a nail in with a sponge. Try all you want, it's not going to happen. Switch to a different tool, a rock, or a hammer and a much better outcome. You sound overwhelmed. Make this week, about being prepared, and easy go to choices. Here's a few tips that I try, I buy at least a dozen hard boiled eggs already done and peeled (you could just make your own, it's an expense that Indulge in). I get a roasted chicken and break it apart so that it is ready to go. I have cottage cheese, strawberries, blueberries. All of these things are easy go to grab and go foods. If it's a tough day, you don't have to think about your food choices. The chicken can be chicken salad, or just thrown on to a salad.

    Your trying don't give up. You've got this.

    Part of my adventure is food that I make: I sit down every week with a planner and go through my cookbooks (the old fashioned version of internet recipes). I check cookbooks out of the library and go through those. I write down what I want each day, make a grocery list and provision my kitchen. I write down on my calendar what needs to be done, like which day to take something out of the freezer, or a reminder to start dinner at 3 instead of 5. When I am feeling itchy, I look at my planner and really look forward to the treat of a meal I have planned for myself. That way I can live in a state of perpetual anticipation of wonderful, legal food.

    Why don't you start a 7 day streak doing all the things you know you want to do. At the end of the 7 days reward yourself with some flowers, (or other reward). Then decide if you want to extend the streak for another 7 days! emoticon
