One of the things imperative to my health improving is getting back in the kitchen. I stopped cooking regularly like I once did. The result was almost immediate weight gain and elevated blood pressure. I realize food is not the only issue. It is, however, the first of a few things I will address. I’m setting small attainable goals so as not to get discouraged. I will measure results in 30 days.
The day after my doctors appointment I went grocery shopping. I bought fresh and frozen produce. I had a plan in mind. Meal planning is so important. I bought vegetables that I would use for omelets as well as stir fry dishes. I also bought nutritional shakes and meal replacement shakes for days when I’m on the road. My schedule can change in an instant. I want to avoid the urge to stop for high sodium meals on the go. Wouldn’t you know it, while I was shopping I got a call for a commercial. Those shakes came in handy. I had just enough time to take my groceries home and get on the road. It was a rush but I was prepared. I felt accomplished drinking my shake instead of searching for a drive thru on my way to set.
Two days later and I am sticking to my plan of homemade or shakes. It is not hard if I plan ahead. It is the last minute hunger that gets me in trouble. So far so good. Follow me on Instagram to see what I cook up. https://www.instagram.com/shirareneebethea/
