Happy Monday everybody!
My sleeping in habits are really getting out of control. I was going with it for the weekend because I figured my body needed the rest, but tomorrow the alarm goes back on.
I’m perfectly content, thankyouverymuch.
I know you are all dying to know what I have planned for today, so I bring you…
A list compiled of things starting with the letter W:
- Wallace Library for Case Studies/Literature Review
- Wegmans for 3 days worth of grocery shopping
- Washing dishes
- Watching bad TV
Today is brought to you by the letter W!
Oh boy, not even three days into my break, and I’m already going crazy.
I thrive on routine.
I require goals.
I succeed when I have a plan of action.
These are all things I tell my clients to incorporate when making food choices.
Routine: Eat regularly and consistently. Eat 3 meals a day, with snacks in between if hungry. Studies have shown time and time again that people who skip meals become (or already are) overweight.
Goals: Measurable, realistic, action-based. ex) I will eat one extra veggie serving daily. Check out my Making Changes post for more detail.
Plan of action: Create a food plan. Know what you are going to eat before you eat it. Don’t make your food choices when you are standing in front of the refrigerator. When you have a plan you’ll be less likely to overeat and more likely to eat healthfully! And if you are a sweet-tooth like myself, include treats in your food stratagem. Knowing you are allowed to eat a cookie takes away the deprivation and eliminates the “forbiden fruit” title. I, for one, like to enjoy my cookies guilt-free.
Uhh, yeah. Sorta…
At least you’re eating three times a day! (I like to encourage people.)
That’s enough for now. Have a great week!
