I think I have failed my health goal the first week itself! I made it to the gym three days this week. But didn’t make it after that. I have been tracking calories and realized that I am eating way more than I should be. I am trying to stay within 1500 calories each day. Also we went out for dinner yesterday. And Mike is out grabbing dinner as I write this.
I need to get a grip on this if I plan to lose 35 pounds this year. For a vegetarian, I don’t really eat as much salads as one would think. When I was growing up, every meal would always be carb centric – rice or pasta. I hardly every eat salads. I should change this and try incorporate more salads into my routine. Maybe I should try and pick some yummy dressing at Trader Joe’s the next time I am there. Also I have cold cereal for breakfast everyday and I shouldn’t be doing that. I don’t buy sugar loaded cereal though and stick to Kashi, but I think having oatmeal in the morning is a good idea. The only problem is, I usually hate oats. Time to change a lot of what I don’t like!
Hope next week turns out better.
