EVERYTHING. Tired of thinking about food. Tired of making the "right" choices all the time. And, like a 3 year old, I throw a fit...I eat whatever I feel like, and then some. Then I feel gross, the scale makes a big jump and I have to slap myself to wake up from the sugar coma that usually results from my "tantrum phase".
So that's where I am. I've made some positive choices too, but the results of my poor nutritional intake are still an up tick of the scale and some self frustration.
I've set some goals and reconfigured my workout plan. These are my goals for the next 2 weeks.
- Eat 9-12 servings of vegetables daily (3-4 each meal)
- Exercise according to the "plan"
- No snacking, especially during dinner prep
- Eat when hungry, not for "pleasure stimulation"
- Do not weigh or measure myself
- Drink copious amounts of water
Now, on to something a bit more fun than talking about my missteps....
I joined a CSA!
Community Supported Agriculture. "CSA is a partnership of mutual commitment between a farm and a community of supporters, which provides a direct link between the production and consumption of food. Supporters cover a farm's yearly operating budget by purchasing a share of the season's harvest." (Source)
Every week (starting next Thursday) I'll get a variety box of veggies from a local organic farmer. I also purchased a half share of fruit. How did I not know this was available in my area? Thank you Kristen for posting your CSA pictures on Instagram. It gave me the push I needed to look into it. If you want to see what's available in your area, you can put in your zip code/city on this website.
I am very excited to try it out and see how it goes!!
And now, I must go eat something tasty and veggie filled :)
Have a great weekend!!
