I know that weight loss is 80% of what you eat. I also know that good health relies heavily how you fuel your body. But over and over again I plan to grab something “healthy” on the run. Even though 9 out of 10 times that doesn’t happen. The sad thing is I don’t intend to make poor choices. More and more I am finding that I eat unhealthily because there are no healthy choices available to me.
My cafeteria at work will advertise vegetables but then season them with bacon or ham. So the one thing a non-meat eater can always count on instantly becomes uneatable. Then I look at the entrees: meat, meat, or mac’n cheese. All poor choices for me. So I am left grabbing a bag of chips, crackers, or a KIND bar. Great! The poor breakfast and lunch choices lead to ravenous hunger after work and me opting for something quick rather than something nutritious.
I need to get it through my head that this is insanity. Everyday I go to the company cafeteria expecting choices and most days I am disappointed. I need to start bringing my breakfast and lunch. I need to start meal prepping on the weekend. Because it doesn’t matter if I wake up early every morning before work and walk. It doesn’t matter if I track my calories religiously. I cannot get healthy if I don’t take control of my diet. So this weekend I will plan out a menu. I will prep my meals. I will making the same choice over and over again and expecting a different result.
