Now that the Pig 10K is ACCOMPLISHED, what shall I call Tuesday? I still want that health/food/recipe focus… So, Tasty Tuesday? From the Table Tuesday? On the Table Tuesday? Nah. That gave me the giggles. Tuesday Treats? Nothing’s shouting out at me quite yet so stay tuned.
Anyway, I believe you can change your eating habits if you really want to. I didn’t say it would be easy. Most of you know my history with Weight Watchers. Andy and I started the program back in 2002, followed it diligently, started exercising, held strong, and then had kids and life got crazy. I restarted the new program a couple of months ago with great success. I’m happy to report that I’m back into almost all of my old clothes…hence the closet clean-out last week.
I’m also reporting that I will be canceling my WW membership when my 3-month deal ends later in May. Yep. Canceling. Not because I don’t like the program. In fact, I’m a huge fan. I’m just not using the tools anymore. I’ve pretty much got down how many points things are again and I’ve gotten into new habits. I’ve recharged my battery and am set in my new food routine.
The top 3 things I’ve changed successfully:
- Liquids. I cut out the Starbucks and the pops (cokes, sodas, whatever you call them). I have had some, but not nearly like before. I really think twice about the calories and caffeine before consuming. I’ve upped my water a TON. When I think I’m hungry, I chug some water first. And I never leave the house without my water bottle FULL.
- Snacking. I have basically cut out or severely reduced the starches and high carbs. Bye-bye chips, graham crackers (and peanut butter), granola bars, cottage cheese, etc. Instead I reach for plain old fruits and veggies. The Green B.E.A.N. Delivery has helped keep those in supply – this week’s delivery shown below.
- I’ve significantly cut my eating after dinner. I finish dinner with 2 dark chocolate Hershey kisses and go upstairs and brush my teeth. This has helped the urge to snack after the kids are in bed.
And you? I know some of you are on the eat better, lose weight, exercise more path as well. How’s it going?? What’s been easy to change? What’s the hardest thing? And…what do you want to hear about on Tuesdays?
