You may be asking yourself, "What's up with Laura?".
Well, what is up is my weight, and hiding it under a bunch of layers just isn't working for me. I'd like to blame the holidays for my complete lack of eating judgement, but let's just say I know better.
So today I took a good look at myself, metaphorically speaking. I am avoiding that actual gut wrenching look in the mirror.
I am actually well aware of the fact that the half eaten bag of Baked Cheese Crunchies sitting beside my chair is not a good idea.
Yes, they are gluten free. Yes, they have less fat. Yes, they are delicious and addictive, but no, I don't see on the back of the package that they are zero calorie.
So, I am going to spend some of this extra time (there must be some extra time in my day somewhere) to get back to my healthy eating plan.
I'm going to put away the junk food and get out my healthy cookbooks.
I know that spring will arrive and I won't be able to hide under the layers. I want to be prepared, not only to look better, but to feel better, because bottom line is that it isn't actually what the scale says, but about being healthier.
I think today when I am waiting for my mom at the eye doctor that I will search online for some healthy meals to prepare. I may even drag out the crock pot this week, because by dinner time I am usually too tired to cook a full healthy meal. That way I can start earlier in the day and then just dish it up.
So, what's on your plate today? Do you have some healthy meals that you like to prepare?
