This year I have been working on eating healthy. Sounds good, right? But I have had a really bad relationship with food for practically my whole life. It's a love affair gone bad sort of thing.
Anyway, I have been researching cookbooks and online recipes and nutrition sites. I've been experimenting with recipes and planning my daily meals and snacks and recording everything I eat. All the while I have had in mind to develop my own diet plan. (or healthy lifestyle plan, since "diet" is no longer in my vocabulary.) I am, also, creating my own healthy recipes to go along with my new healthy eating program.
Well, today I had a big breakthrough! I have developed an actual meal plan! Now I can use this plan to guide me through the tedious, wretched task of planning my meals. Instead of making it up as I go along, I have actual guidelines and meal suggestions to help me make that horrid decision of what to eat today.
Now I have to follow and document and track my weight to see how it actually works, and tweak as needed.
I'm really psyched! Oh, and so far I have lost 12 pounds!
