So far I have not done much to meet my 2013 goals set at the beginning of the year. I set up some healthy eating goals, but have not had much success. I have been eating a larger variety of breakfast foods. I have not gotten into juice meal replacements, nor have I done anything to cut back on sweets after 5:00 PM. By happenstance, my April goal of cooking at home twice per week worked out.
I had my annual physical in April and decided I should try to have a salad rather than rice or noodle based dinners. As a result, I am up to 13 cooked dinners. 8 were salads, 2 nights were pasta, 1 night was chicken wraps, 1 night was scrambled eggs and 1 night was homemade pizza.
The goal for May is no fast food. I originally defined fast as McDonald’s, pizza, etc. I am going to back off on this definition and instead go with healthy choices when dining out. In April we dined out 10 nights. 3 nights were Garlic Knot, 1 night was Chipotle, 1 night was McDonalds, 1 night was Big Burrito, 1 night was Yak & Yeti, 1 night was Sushi Ahi, 1 night was Burger King, and 1 night was Subway. Of the outings, I would like to eliminate McDonalds and Burger King. I will still go to Garlic Knot, but will not have pizza or pasta. At Mexican places I will go with naked burritos without rice. Yak & Yeti, Sushi Ahi and Subway lend themselves to healthy choices.
