I must confess, I slipped up today. My only excuse is that I wasn’t prepared!
We’ve been running a bit short on groceries this week. I admit, I let the kids eat toast for supper two nights in a row (not just toast). I was short on time to cook them something so took the easy route. Not a terrible thing once in awhile, but in the beginning of my journey when I’m just trying to get in a groove, it’s not good! Tonight I was hungry, the toast smelled good, and we didn’t have anything else ready to go. So, I ate toast. And I had a glass of wine.
You might think I’m beating myself up. I’m not. But I also wish I hadn’t eaten that. I know what those kinds of carbs do to me. But instead of ruining the entire night, I have decided to move on. I’m back on plan NOW instead of waiting until tomorrow.
I really need to plan our meals in advance! I sent Marcus to the grocery store tonight, and had him buy ingredients to make white chili. I love it! And for my current eating plan, it fits in perfectly. I’ll need to work on cleaning it up and using more organic ingredients, but one step at a time.
One of my goals for the weekend is to search for some new recipes to try. I’ve gotten a few suggestions and found enough sites with things I’d like to try. It’s time I just pick a few and try them! 🙂
That’s really the point of my post. I think the biggest “secret” to weight loss, or any healthy lifestyle, is planning and preparation. Not planning ahead is downright dangerous! It sets you up to fail, and I am NOT going to fail. Planning it is…
