I didn't expect this.
Up until just a couple of weeks ago, I've been getting by on Lean Cuisine and carefully eating out, with very little cooking at home.
But I know I have to start cooking! For one thing, I'm getting tired of the frozen meals. And eating out is expensive.
So I made a menu. I went to the store and bought what I needed. And I've been cooking suppers more than not. But the problem I'm experiencing is that it is more difficult to exercise portion control when I'm eating my own delicious home-cooked meals. My weight is kinda plateauing out too, which I'm sure is an indication that I'm eating too much.
At least the meals I'm cooking are healthy. But I'm just finding it harder to control the urge to go back for seconds. Who knew I was such a good cook? At the same time, it's gotten too cold to get in the pool and get my pool-walking in, so I'm also not exercising like I was. Sounds like I need a new strategy for the winter.
Hopefully, these struggles will pass. And hopefully, I'll get a handle on it before Thanksgiving! Man, this living healthy stuff is tuff. But worth it. Right? Just nod your head. I need the affirmation!
