Well, it seems that having a job and keeping a schedule is a big help toward eating better. Most times in the past when I was pressed for time because of work or whatever, fast food was my choice; McDonald’s, Burger King, or Wendy’s. I’m not saying these are totally out of the picture. I AM human.
Lately, about the last month, I have chosen to eat salads with some sort of grilled meat; chicken, or steak. There are actually a lot of choices. And no, I don’t get salads from the three placed mentioned above. If I go to those places I’m eating a burger and french fries.
Walmart is a place that has a great variety of different salads. They are made fresh daily, though I don’t think they make them in-house. They are quite tasty though. I usually buy 3 or 4 at a time. And like before I don’t get really hungry because of the low glycemic load.
The salads are pretty big, probably 4 cups of green leafy stuff. The dressings are pretty nice as well. Each salad comes with a specific dressing. Some of my favorite salads are the Southwestern with steak, Grilled chicken with apples, dried cranberry, blue cheese, and walnuts is another good one. I don’t remember what that one is called. Of course, they have the Chef Salad, not one of my favorites. It will do in a pinch though. And there are many more to choose from.
I’m not saying I’m back on course, but it is a start in the right direction. I seem to do better when I don’t try so hard. So I just try to make one smart decision at a time when eating is concerned.
Well, that’s about all I have to say for today.😊
Maybe that’s the secret: when people try to hard, the pressure is too high to cope with and we falter and give in to temptation, because we make temptation grow bigger than ever ourselves. Humans are crazy creatures for sure 🙂
It seems like you really are on the right path now, Tony, with your new job and a new schedule, making eating more healthily easier for you. I hope this positive rush will hang around for a whole while longer 🙂
Sam, what happened to your blog?
Oh, I changed its name and URL. I should still pop up in your reader, though, but as Heart to Follow and no longer as Dictionary Dutch 🙂
