I just knew it...the food dilemma
I just knew that once I made my mind up to change my eating (I really do eat rather well already and I've been stalling on this...), that I'd need to cut out the delicious, but dastardly, coffee creamers. I might only have one cup of coffee a day, but I do add a lot of creamer...that wonderfully flavored liquid stuff! (full of chemicals!!)
Today was my first day without it. It wasn't a problem as I don't NEED coffee to start my day. I'm a morning person and I can get up early without a problem. I just like coffee. It's sort of a comfort food...it's cozy for me. No worries, I just substituted with herbal tea and Agave sweetener. It's better for me anyway. Now, it's onto portion control. (GROAN!) I will measure out my foods and stop eating sweets. You heard it...I've put it out there so now I have to do it!
If you're looking for help with food, I recommend the SuperTracker. My husband just turned me onto it and, while it can be rather time consuming to load in all your foods, it looks like it will really help me. In just tracking one or two meals I could see I eat WAY too much salt. And I already told you that I eat pretty well. But there's a lot of hidden salt in what you think is healthy. So have a go at it and see what you think.
Do you have any health tips to share that have worked for you? Inquiring minds want to know. ;-)
Here's to a few less pounds of me next time we "talk"!
