Did you fall off your diet this weekend? I didn't go as far as having an Awesome Blossom at Chili's, but I did munch my way though a good part of a bag of Chex Mix (Chocolate Turtle flavored) and grazed through the weekend on whatever I felt like having.
I needn't wonder why my janes are tot....I, and I alone am responsible for the southern expansion I've experienced recently.
Monday is a great day to get back on the wagon and eat healthy! When I feel good physically, I am better at managing my home and have more energy to rule the roost. When my kids eat healthy foods, they are much more cheerful and cooperative, plus it helps them learn to make good food choices.
Today's Small Thing is to eat by the numbers. There are several ways you can accomplish this. You only have to pick one and you can make it as simple as you'd like.
- Count the calories you consume today
- Count points (ala Weight Watchers, etc.)
- Count food groups
- Count grams of fat
- Count carbs
- Count how many times you chew a bite of food
- Count how many servings of fruit you have today
- I'm sure there's something else to count that I can't remember....feel free to remind me
You can choose how and what you count. If you're on a specific diet, you'll get points for being a good girl and following it today. If you're just trying to eat better by cutting out the junk food, try counting calories or food groups. If you're already a healthy eater, pay attention to how many times you chew or make a game out of it with your kids.
Whatever you choose to do, it will add up to a healthy start to your week!
