15 weeks

All right, fiends. I am going out on a huge limb here.

Fifteen weeks remain until the Thriller and I leave on our Route 66 Odyssey. I am going on record this morning to inform one and all (something I never, ever do on this subject) that we began a healthier eating regimen yesterday.  During the next 15 weeks and beyond, we have committed ourselves to not putting so much garbage down the hatch. We’re going to walk Rousseau every evening, weather permitting. Now that my Dinner Theatre and tour are over, I am cooking dinner every weeknight because I can be a real teacher and go home before dark.

That’s about as far as the new promises go, however. Don’t want to overload myself. One step at a time, da?

So give me some of your best healthy eating tips. What works for you? Not eating after 7 p.m. works for me. I had to wrap my brain around the fact that it’s OK to go to bed with the munchies. No big deal: you won’t die and your bod will thank you in the morning.

And here we go. I’ve gone public, so it’s on.

Happy Tunesday!

Portions, portions, portions. Also tracking. Try writing down everything you eat for a week or so – quite revealing!!

Remember – it takes 30 days to ingrain a habit. So go easy on yourself and be patient with yourself (and each other!!)

Congrats on your smart decision! I’m sure you’ll keep us posted!

I keep myself hydrated thoroughly. It helps tone down the hunger cravings. I am a big more of a camel than others, though. I throw down 3 quarts a day usually. I also make sure to have some sort of non-sugary afternoon snack. If I don’t I eat way too much for dinner. If it’s sugary I am hungry about 20 minutes later. I also run 2 miles every day, along with a little lifting and cycling, sometimes swimming. (I know, I know….)

I’m no guru on this, but I think it all boils down to expending more calories than we take in every day. I think a comibination of smaller portions of healthier food combined with exercise to increase the metaboism are the essntails. That’s all this “dr” has to offer :-) Good luck. Just so I’ll still know you when I see you!

Does this mean no more Panera? If so, I’m going to have trouble offering my full support. My best weight loss tactic is pregnancy…not sure you want to go that route.

I agree on the portions thing. We’ll talk *wink*
