Today I put the kids’ cereal away after putting some in their bowls rather than letting it sit out.
That sounds dumb to say, but it’s a big start for me. Because, of course, when it sits out my hand accidentally falls in, pulls handfuls out, and shovels it into my mouth. Amazingly enough, when I put it away right afterward, I didn’t snack on the cereal.
Simple stuff is what I’m focusing on today.
I measured things that went into my breakfast. The egg beaters. The parmesan cheese. The broccoli. Okay, not the broccoli…nobody ever got fat from eating too much of that. But everything else is getting measured starting now.
I’ll also be starting to write down what I eat (don’t worry, I don’t plan to bore you with a detailed record here, LOL), but I won’t be writing down the Weight Watchers points yet since I’m not ready for that level of detail. Just like with working out, you have to start with what you can handle.
Today it’s the simple stuff.
All this month I’ll be working to get my eating back under control – will you join me?
