Blogging about lunch right after breakfast worked so well yesterday, I might start doing it from now on– during the work week, that is. I always pack my lunch the night before, so snapping a few photos and blogging in the morning should work pretty well with my schedule. Plus, you guys won’t have to wait until 4:30 to see what I had for lunch. It’s a win-win, right? 😉
For lunch today, I packed a very similar salad to the one I ate for dinner last night. If I’m going to cut up the veggies, I might as well throw together a lunch salad for today.
In the mix: romaine, grape tomatoes, cucumber, red and green bell peppers, crumbled Gorgonzola, and a chopped-up Quorn Turk’y Burger.
I also packed a yellow apple from my stash of reduced produce.
And, finally, I packed a Vega Whole Food Vibrancy Bar. Hopefully, the chocolate is better than the flavor that I ate the other day! 😕
Lose the Dough: What Are Your Goals?
Last night, I spent a good part of the evening thinking about my goals for Lose the Dough. With a long-term challenge like this, I’ve been tempted to make a whole slew of life-changing goals in order to “lose the dough.” But, trying to achieve these aspirations all at once might be a bit overwhelming for me– how and where would I focus my attention? Plus, if I don’t see results, I’ll probably get frustrated and want to quit. Instead, I’m planning to split my goals into two categories: measurable and non-measurable/lifestyle changes.
Measurable goals, like losing 5 pounds, are great and I understand why they are important. But, what about the goals that I want to incorporate into my lifestyle for good, like adding more veggies to my meals? Of course, I could put a number on this goal, like “eat X servings of vegetables everyday,” but I just don’t work that way. I have a much more laid-back approach to food! 😉
So, I came to this conclusion: if I am going to make long-lasting changes in my life, they need to make sense for my current lifestyle. I don’t want to totally change how I live. I just want to enhance my life by incorporating new healthy habits that work best for me. (I can always reassess my goals down the road.) I think some of my lifestyle goals will be just as (or even more) important to my success than the ones I can measure.
I’ll detail all of my goals (both measurable and non-measurable) as well as my game plan for the challenge on Monday morning. I just wanted to give those of you on board a heads-up to start thinking about what you want to achieve in the next 5 months. So, write ’em down or blog about them! 😉
