It’s time to check in on all of out plans for 2016. Remember? We gave ourselves a bit of extra time to start on our road to a happier 2016 by starting on this past Monday. I’d give myself a solid ‘B’ so far. I had a few chocolates left over from Christmas that I could not resist. But other than that, I’ve stuck to my clean eating with mostly salads and baked fish. I tried cooking a whole tilapia but that didn’t go so well. I think because it was so small. It weighed only just over a pound with head and tail and bones and there was not much meat. This means I can justify buying the more expensive salmon fillets, right?
My mental results have been phenomenal. I’ve been drinking electrolyte water almost exclusively (believe it or not the cheapest place to buy it is Whole Foods 365 brand) about three liters a day! I’m allowing myself the fattening dressing on salads, at least for now. And this all seems to be having a great effect on my moods. Physically, I’ve got some joint issues slowing me down, but they are also improving.
Eating fresh foods means way more trips to the grocery store than I would like, but that’s probably a good thing. Getting out more is part of the plan.
So we made it through the first week. How did you do? If you need a do over, there is another Monday right around the corner.
What is on your agenda for this weekend? I’ve got a chicken to cook and a kitchen to clean and a sink to try once again to unclog! The weather is bleak, but I’m in a good place so it’s time to get started!
