Meal Planning

Thursday, June 19, 2014

Yesterday was meal planning day, and man did I just not feel like it! I finally got it done, but I'm not happy with it, so I'm only going to go shopping for week one and put the money aside for week 2. One of the things I don't know how to go about is getting all the stuff for my juice, how long will the veggies last in my fridge? I'm not doing kale again, having this bad kale just threw my taste for it completely off (YUCK!), but spinach works just fine! Plus I always have spinach around for my salads (I prefer spinach to lettuce).

I'm not doing so good on the no wheat, no dairy for my juice plus. I keep forgetting! I'm starting over as soon as my supplements get in. Apparently there was a problem at UPS and it got sent somewhere else, but is finally making it's way to me now. Should be here by Friday. In fact I didn't do good on my diet very much yesterday as I had some sausage. I know pork is on my okay list, but I'm pretty sure sausage is way too greasy for my diet.

emoticon So I have my juice for today, my cucumber went bad, so none of that in it emoticon but it still tastes okay, though I prefer the cucumber. Juice and then a shake for breakfast - after I buys some rice milk. Then a normal lunch and a shake for dinner. Tonight is spaghetti night and I can't have wheat, so shake it is. I read that putting a cup of spinach or kale in your shake does not change the flavor, and you can still put in the fruits to make it taste good, so I'm going to try that this morning. More than likely I'll have a snacky lunch. Maybe some hummus with a rice cake and a granola bar.

emoticon About to go do my 30 minutes on the Wii Fit. I'm going to try my best to get started on my elliptical this morning, I know if I can just start I'll be able to keep going and remember every day. I haven't remembered to do my strength training for the last two days, so going to get that in today. I guess I've been too worried that I'd get too fatigued and it would ruin the rest of my day emoticon I need to accept that I'm going to get fatigued no matter what I do and just try to live as normally as possible till I get to the doctor and get this thing figured out.

emoticon I rediscovered that if I put ice in my water bottle I'm more likely to drink it all. Room temperature water doesn't bother me, I just don't drink as much of it.

emoticon Today I weighed in at 234 emoticon . I should have known because I ate so badly yesterday, but I'm so upset! I had gotten down to 232, that is up 2 pounds! Gah! That just gives me the motivation to do better, no moping! Motivation! I CAN do this!!

So for today:
~stick to my food plan!
~don't go shopping hungry!
~Get in an extra work out!
~drink my water!
~Get outside!

    keeping fresh stuff fresh is hard - I do a "big" shopping one week where I get everything: fresh stuff plus cans, frozen, boxed stuff--and then a small shopping to reboot the salad greens etc. I keep back about a third (a little more) of my two weeks' grocery money. It usually works out pretty well, but I do also try to keep an extra $25 or so around in an envelope just in case I need to buy something for a special meal/company/birthday or whatever - I don't use it every month.

    I have MS so I understand the days when you can't do 'everything' - I have three levels of exercise - a bare bones exercise routine that I can do on the days when I'm dizzy or hurting - a more normal routine and a super routine for days when I really feel great. There are days when I'm way too dizzy to do anything and I just have to allow for that.

    I never thought about putting ice in my water bottle - I've been noticing how warm the water has been this week and it's not enjoyable. Ice would be really helpful. emoticon
