Redefining *Cooking*

Saturday, January 09, 2010

After much thought and advice from the people who commented on my last blog, I've decided to redefine what I meant by "cooking" dinner at home at least four nights a week. My true goal was to actually have control over what I ate for dinner by preparing it for myself. Since I am a takeout junkie, I thought that eating dinner at home would do me some good.

So instead of a goal of "cooking" dinner at home four times a week, I will say that I will prepare dinner at home at least four nights a week. This means if I make a salad or eat a bowl of cereal, it will fit my goal requirement in the literal sense. With this change, I ate dinner at home... prepared by me... SIX times out of seven this week!

I cooked spaghetti tonight for dinner. It wasn't the healthiest meal, but it was a craving I couldn't resist. You can't take the Italian food away from the Italian girl, capise?

    This is what I need to work on too! After I started dating my current boyfriend my eating habits changed. This is a great idea to set the small goals. Great job accomplishing what you set out to do! And congrats on the loss!

    I too had spaghetti, it was whole wheat with veggies in the sause---I think the cold weather makes this food sound good to have!

    Good idea to do more "cooking" at home--like you said you have more control!

    Good Luck to you!
