It's a new week!



“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey

I read this quote this morning and it reminded me of the friends I have lost in the past 12 months and that I need to live my best life now.  I can’t expect things to change for me with my health or with the goals that I have set for myself if I don’t do something to make it happen. 

Honestly, a friend recommended “The Diet Fix” to me and it has really made me take stock of what I want to do and that I need to escape the diet mentality and focus on making the positive changes.  Some of these things I was trying to make an effort to do anyway.  Making no single food “off limits” and for me, not having beef is just not an option.  I grew up on beef/red meat so I will have chicken and turkey, but I can’t just take ground beef out of my meal plan because then I just feel deprived.  I do choose the lower fat cuts of beef.

We’ve gone through some changes in my house of late which I think has thrown me off my game a bit.  So I did my grocery shopping and am putting some meals together to make sure that we have no excuses this week on whether or not we stay “on plan”.  This is something that I have to do for myself because I refuse to keep paying for Weight Watchers and have the scale go in the wrong direction.  I am enjoying trying new recipes.  Some are becoming new family favorites and others are not, but it’s fun to try something new.

Goal for this week:

Get my lunch and snacks prepared.
Get my breakfast burritos prepared in advance.
