During the week, I eat fairly well. plain oatmeal for breakfast, low carb lunches and generally a salad for dinner. Unfortunately, come around 5pm on Friday, I lose all self control and it all goes downhill - cocktails, steaks, fried food, 3AM Jack in Box monster tacos.. you get the idea :sad2: .
Weekend is hard for me to stay good because I'm at home and just lounging around. I used to go hike every weekend but not anymore :unsure:
Hmmm I have a toddler, he's pretty much a vegetarian though, it's so funny. I've never heard of this Juice Plus, sounds interestingon to google!
Check it out, I have been very impressed with it. It was exactly what I had been looking for for my kiddos. I kept saying to my husband, "Wouldn't it be great if they could put all the super veggies in a capsule, a la Star Trek." My daughter just turned 3, so she has the gummies. She takes 3 fruits in the morning and 3 veggies at night and she seems to really like it. It is fairly popular here in CO.
umm, during the week, i think im ok.... eat 1 meat and 3 veg for dinner... but at work, im really bad - i'm always going to the snack box to get chips etc... its really cheap! i try and not bring change to work! i dont want to end up looking like a potato chip! during the weekend im ok - when i go out with friends etc... i always try and pick the healthly option. :-)
I'm pretty bad. I usually have only one meal a day. I can't eat until later in the day, usually around 2-3, so that's when the eating starts, I have my meal then and wait a few hours and then snack before bed. I usually go to sleep with a full stomach. gross. I'm beginning to feel motivation to start the change. haha
I eat well during the week. I always bring my lunch to work, eat oatmeal every morning, and buy lots of fruits, vegetables and healthy food at the grocery store.
The weekends, however, are a different story As I type this I am eating Chinese takeout - an egg roll, shrimp fried rice and those fried noodle things, and drinking wine. So good Friday night and Saturday are usually my damage-doing nights, Sunday I'm back on track.
This is basically what I've been doing for the past three weeks and have lost seven pounds as of today! I wasn't even really trying either! If you're only "bad" one or two days a week you can't possibly gain all the weight you have lost during the week (unless it's water weight) Now the take out food tempations are gone, I cook all meals during the week, I feel better because I have more energy and I feel like I'm being a better wife too. Works for me!
I'm doing pretty well. I do not consume anything w/ simple sugars. I eat whole wheat pasta, LOTS of fruits/veggies and TONS of H2O. I worked out 6 dys/wk and cardio 5 dys/wk. No cream sauces or fatty cheeses for me. Also, absolutely no candy/choco of course but there are some great tasting sugar-free protein bars that are TDF at my local Henry's (like Trader Joe's). That's how I get my choco fix along w/ protein shakes and supplements. I take vit's every day which are a huge boost!
I figure w/ all this self-discipline, I'll be able to watch my great-grandchildren grow up and maybe even teach them how to snowboard like I'll do w/ my own kids!!!
I am very anal and I never buy junk food. The only time I may eat unhealthy is going out to eat, because you never know what is in the food. Usually I have natural, whole foods, such as wheat bread, veggies and fruits, and lots of lean protein. But I mean... now and then I splurge on a juicy steak or chili cheese fries. I still have to lose weight tho. My major weakness is chocolate, but I love dark chocolate, which is full of antioxidants! Whee!
