Grocery Shopping Trip

I went to the grocery store today.  After reading a comment from my friend, Karen, I realized how right she is.  I have a tendency to eat a bar and then skip the rest of the meal.  I don't get hungry sometimes so I forget to eat, which is a bad habit or I end up eating one meal a day with a snack either early or later after the meal.  I bought plums, bananas, and grapes.  I have a sweet tooth at times too so the fruit will be perfect.  I will take her advise and not eat fruit at night.  I don't need it to turn to more sugar and get fatter.  I also found in the freezer skinless chicken breasts as well as some veggies that I forgot I had because I bought them a while ago.  I bought milk and cereal too so I will have that with fruit for brunch now.  I didn't buy any pop because I am trying to cut back and when I have it here in the house, I can sometimes drink more pop than water.  I am trying to drink more water.  I don't mind water.  I actually like the taste of water so I don't need any of the other type water that has flavors.  I just know that if I have a choice between water and pop, I generally pick the pop out of habit.  I am trying to break that habit.  I have a lot of bad habits that I need to break.

Today I had chipotle for dinner again.  I love their rice.  I need to learn how to make it so that I can make it at home.  I am going to be working on expanding my recipes and relearning how to cook this summer. I need a part for my grill and then it will be going again.  I love my faberware grill.  I also have a foreman grill that I love.  I also will be getting some fish next month when I go grocery shopping, I didn't have enough money today but I have plenty of chicken and roasts for the rest of the month.  Karen really got me thinking about how little I actually eat some days and how that can lead to weight gain.  Thank goodness for good friends to remind me of stuff like that.

I had a really good day and I am looking forward to eating better tomorrow with the start of brunch.

  1. Get your self a journal and write down what you eat, sometimes you will be amazed and what you eat, or don't eat when you go back and re-read what your wrote last week. I am proud of you that you didn't buy anymore pop.
