Transitioning to Healthy Eating
I don’t know about you but as the second weekend in January approaches I’m finding my lofty healthy eating goals for 2013 to be a bit more difficult. For instance, it’s The Hub’s birthday today and we’re going out to the amazing Cask and Larder for dinner. You gotta know that I’m going to be eating pimento cheese and ham jam while chugging down some of their house-brewed beer. Decidedly NOT healthy.
But I’m not worrying about it too much. I had a good week food-wise, what with the Wilted Spinach with Raisins and Garlic on pasta for dinner on Monday and two other meatless dinners this week, cutting the sugar and most of the milk out of my coffee and getting in a 2 mile walk/run three times and a yoga class once. And so I feel pretty good, and definitely entitled to a bit of pimento cheese.
Next week is going to be alright too. In my and Katie’s chat with Amanda from Amanda’s Apron this week I was reminded that it’s all about baby steps. Going crazy and making tons of major changes takes a lot of work and even more will power. It’s much easier to slowly change a few things at time. I’m going to have some fun this weekend. And then I’ll try to repeat this week’s successes next week and take on the philosophy of What Happens on the Weekend Stays on the Weekend!
