i usually don't post random pictures of food, but this is the only picture i took today, so it'll have to work. one of my goals for the new year is to get healthy. and the biggest part of that for me is eating. i don't ever really eat too much, but being home all day with toddlers finds me snacking pretty much all day long and not eating meals that fill me up, which leads to late night binging. there you go. i admit that my eating habits aren't good. it's kind of obvious. and i feel every bit of unhealthy with very little energy. and when you have all the kids running around, energy is important!
there's so many diets out there to try. so many "don't eat this" rules that people are following. i don't do well with those. i'm not going to do a specific no-carb diet for a few months, then go back to grubbin' at the bread table. i just want to eat healthy. no diet. for the rest of my life. not just for a moment in a year. only put things that are good for me in my mouth. diets don't work. eating healthy does. and it's a way of life. that's what i want my life to be. i'm following the weight watchers plan and i really like it because it doesn't take food out of your life. if you like pizza, which i do, you can eat pizza. it's all about moderation and portion control.
i started monday and i'm doing good so far. i've had moments when i feel like snacking b/c i'm an emotional eater and i either grab a handful of grapes or a banana and down even more water. the most important part is that i feel great, physically. the picture above is of what i've eaten for lunch a few times this week. a tortilla (which i need to find a healthier version of), fat-free refried beans, 1/4 of an avocado, and salsa. two of those = 12 points in weight watchers, paired with a cup of grapes and i'm full and completely satisfied. it's yummy (and yes, i saw this meal on pinterest).
