80/20

I keep reading that to lose weight it's 80% diet, 20% excercise. That's good, because I'm not feeling the excercise.

I'm sure it's because my hubby is on vacation, and my routines are all scrambled. Come Monday, I'm back on the bandwagon with flags raised. I'm soooo looking forward to my routines! Logan even came to me yesterday (he's my 15 year old) and said he really misses healthy foods. Not that I haven't been making them... he's been at his dad's for meals.

My biggest thing that I have to get back under control is supersizing. Portion control. Eating until only SATISFIED and being okay with leaving food on my plate. I still have problems with that, having come from a "clean your plate" background. Starving children in Africa and all that. (to which my response was always thinking "put it in an envelope and send it to them, then, because I don't want it!")

So, back to smaller plates. Measuring. Healthy portions. 50-60% vegetables on the plate. No butter. No salt. No late night snacking. No popcorn binges. Meal planning. Soups. Salads. Oatmeal. CLEAN EATING!!

It sounds awesome! And I know that once I'm back doing it, I'll fall right into place with everything.

Thanks for listening,

Dee

Clean eating sounds good!

omg! That was huge in my house growing up - eat everything on your plate! Even if I was full, I had to eat it. Tough habit to break. I too switched to smaller plates just for that reason!

the diet person I saw in Victoria said up 1/2 of what you think you want on your plate eat the slowly and if you want more go get 1/4 more if you are still hungry get the rest.
She said to do this with every meal that way you are not denying your self if you eat less it is because you did not want it ..lol
