I am not ashamed to say it, I am on Weight Watchers and have been for a few months. Having two kids in two years, really threw my body out of sync. I lost my first 20 pounds right away, but unfortunately due to life in the past month (see last two blog posts), I've gained some back. I
cannot will not let that happen again. I am starting this new year off with a plan. I started working on my plan tonight and my two favorite WW friendly websites gave me some great inspiration.
I am printing out my menu and hanging it on the fridge. If you'd like to take a closer look, click on the picture above, or here to download the menu. Let me know if you like this idea. I will upload them monthly! :) I only planned one meal per weekend because let's face it...life can get in the way, there could be left overs, or chances are we will be eating at the my in-law's or parent's house over the weekend, which means... no cooking for me, SCORE!
I am trying to fit in fresh fish at least once a week. I do have two toddlers and they will be eating all of the above with us. Will they like it? Who knows. I'm not going to stress over it. I know this is a healthy choice for my family. But, just in case, I will have plenty of fruit, yogurt, and Nutella (peanut allergy for my daughter) sandwiches ready to go.
Check out these websites for healthy inspiration!
I have three goals for 2015.
1) Plan out meals in advance. (I will be doing this monthly and don't mind posting!)
By doing this, I will not have to ask myself the stressful question on the drive home, "What are we going to eat tonight?" I will be able to shop for the week on Sunday (except for the fresh fish night) knowing what meals will be coming up.
2) Take at least 10,000 steps per day. I love my Fitbit, but I am returning my Force and waiting for the ChargeHR. Sadly, I won't be able to measure this goal until the new Fitbit comes in, but I will make myself walk daily.
3) Drink more water. I know being a teacher we have to schedule our bathroom breaks, but I really cannot let that be an excuse anymore. I have to drink at least three 32oz water bottles a day and if heavy exercising (zumba) drink more!
Anyone else on Weight Watchers or doing some sort of healthy eating resolution?
