My Food Rules

Discovering the path the health by creating my own rules

Weekly Weigh-In: The Chocolate Onslaught Continues…

It’s probably not a surprise reading the headline of my post to know that I haven’t lost any weight this week.  Same old, same old at 148.4.  At this point I have to ask myself: Do I really want to change?  The answer, definitively, is yes.  My yearning to be at a healthier weight where I look and feel good is no less than when I created My Food Rules.  But clearly something needs to change to get there or I will be stuck here, forever writing Tuesday after Tuesday about how I want more, but never actually seeing the results of that desire.   I am a person of action, so I created a plan of attack.  This is what I am going to do:

  1. Buy a bag of apples to put on the chocolate table in my office.  Without a healthy option readily available, my two choices were chocolate or nothing.  Now the choice is chocolate or apple.  Yes, I realize the chocolate will still be tempting, but I think the constant visual of the fruit will help me make the right decision.
  2. Refresh My Food Rules and update My List of go-to meals (Here’s a link to read My Food Rules:  I have been having a great time experimenting with different recipes and even creating some of my own recipes for the first time in my life.  This is a good thing for me – I love variety and if I eat the same thing day after day I will get bored and stray from healthy choices.   But the whole purpose of having The List is to know how I should plan my meals.  By straying from The List, I have given myself permission to break My Rules.   And since I’ve already broken them once, why not again?
  3. Bring a ton of healthy snack options to work.  It doesn’t matter if I don’t eat everything I bring each day.  Fruits, veggies, and yogurt will always last until tomorrow.

There it is.  This week I will do my utmost to make healthy options available to me at all times.  I will re-commit myself to My Rules because I know that they work – I just need to follow them and the results will happen.
