I seem to only be able to manage 2 days … at best!
I got on the scale this morning and it was dismal. It was really no surprise but more a slap in the face for being so stupid really; as the amount of rubbish I have been stuffing down my gob, along with all the fab healthy meals needless to say, have taken their toll.
SO, what am I to do?
I have tried this and that and know what works well for my body. I know:
a) If I eat chocolate, white bread, cakes or biscuits, it will turn into a binge debauchery scene
b) Eating Dukan is best but expensive
c) I want to eat clean and healthy without going into overdraft to do so
This all points me in the direction of including calorie counting into my days; I will be using myfitnesspal which is free .... YAY; logging my recipes and meals as I go, as well as exercise and any exercise refuelling (shakes and smoothies I'm hoping).
Today I started with attacking the veggie rack and the fridge drawers and made 2 batches of soup for this weeks lunches (enough for hubby and I).
Red Pepper & Potato; and Butternut & Parsnip
So along with calorie counting I'm going to see how frugal I can be whilst being healthy; AGAIN I have told the kids that sweets and junk are OFF my shopping list as this will help me big time if its not in the house I can't eat it and I'm hoping it will help them appreciate REAL food more as well. I will be setting myself a budget …. it's non specific really but it goes like this:
Spend less money on groceries!
OK, so what tips do you have for me to be frugal in my monthly shopping?
