When I first had the heart attack, I vowed to lose all the weight that I needed to lose. I lost quite a bit of it--30 pounds. I got lazy and gained back all 30 pounds. Seeing as my cardiologist is going to have a fit when I go back, I have been able to refocus this week!
What worked for me was to plan food every weekend for the upcoming week. I spent half a day shopping and another half day portioning out food for the week. Last year after I went back to the cath lab for additional stents, had our company's User Summit, SMS 25 year reunion, BV/BVN 25 year reunion and went on vacation, I was too busy to continue to plan out what I was eating each week. Once I got too busy, I broke the habit. I am an all or nothing person. I am either eating good or eating crap. There is no mixing the two.
Seeing as I know for sure that eating crap it bad for me, I feel rather triumphant today:
This, my friends, is all of my fruits and veggies (lots of kale) that I need for the week. Not to mention that I have been up every morning for eight days working out. I am back on the wagon! Cheers to that!
