The first weigh in after the holidays.
The sheer delight when I saw this:
Yes people. That would be a loss, thank you very much! A small loss but a loss none the less!
How did I do it? Well, I let myself eat the holiday treats and goodies and then as soon as January 1 hit, I started hard. I counted every point. I worked out several days in a row. I rocked the WW app.
I was pretty shocked that it all balanced out but I also think it shows that I have truly made a lifestyle change. Only took me almost 4 years but maybe I have this thing figured out.
Anyways…on to the meeting topic.
With the new Weight Watchers 360, they are looking at a habit a month. Last month we talked about packing a snack.
This month, we are focusing on fruits and veggies!
They are asking us to eat a fruit OR veggie with every meal and snack. Why?!? Because it will help us stay fuller longer. They are also packed with vitamins and minerals and good things our bodies need.
I am pretty good about getting in fruit during the day. I usually have fruit for a snack mid-morning and sometimes after school. The veggies, however, are a different story.
I am terrible at eating veggies. I don’t know why but I just don’t enjoy them and it is sometimes torturous to eat them. I have gotten better lately though because I take a big salad to work that has lettuce and cucumbers in it. Occasionally I will get crazy and throw in a carrot. Hold me back! For dinner, I enjoy those Valley Fresh Steamer bags that take less than 5 minutes in the microwave. That is still a veggie even though most of them have sauce!
I would really love to find a way to start enjoying veggies without sauce but I just don’t…as of yet!
How do you try to eat more fruits and vegetables to “bulk up your meals?” Do you have a fruit or veggie with every meal and snack?
