Food is one of my biggest struggles. Along with organizing and housework, food is something that I will always have to work on. I love food! I love food that is not good for me! I really want to eat healthy, but I start off good, then it all goes to pot! I think sometimes my lack of organizing really gets in my way. I tried to do good this week and did better than I have in a while with meal planning. Today I went to the mall to do some last minute Christmas shopping and by the time I got home, I never made dinner. I am trying to move toward a more vegetarian/vegan lifestyle, both from a animal rights perspective and a health perspective. My husband, for various health reasons, is supposed to be eating a more plant based diet. This is also something I have been wanting to do for sometime now, so when he was told to limit his intake of animal protein, I thought it would help me get to where I need/want to be. It has and it hasn't. With this being Christmas week, I haven't really pushed myself to be really good, but I really should be. I will be doing moer menu planning after Christmas. I have one for this week, but I just didn't fallow it today. I don't want to give my self a break, because everytime I do, I feel like i am just giving myself an excuse to be unhealthy. So, I am going to hold myself accountable! I am going to start eating correctly. I am going to make and follow a meal plan every week. I am going to start following through with my beliefs!
This will not be the last you hear about my food journey. There will be ups and downs, but hopefully more ups. I am going to be accountable to myself and I am going to hold myself accountable for following through with mybeliefs and desires to be a healthy eater. I will be eating more homemade foods and be hopefully trying new vegetariam/vegan recipes and I will be totally eliminating the foods that aer on my allergen list from my blood test. I really should also meet with the dietician to talk about how I should be eating. Hopefully my next posts about food will be positve ones with the changes that I want to make!
