I forgot to post on goals at the end of March, probably because I did so poorly during March. So, this covers March and April. My two primary goals are to cook more food at home and to start going to the Y and work on strength training.
I did terrible on both of these during March. In March I ate out too much and ate too much processed foods. And, I wasn’t active at all. April was marginally better. I cooked more at home. My average daily calories eaten were 240 calories a day less than in March (and March had been better than February). January was my best month this year on eating, but April was pretty good despite my being up 1.4 pounds at my April weigh in. I would like to cut it about 50 calories a day, but overall I was happy with it.
While I am doing more eating at home and less processed foods, I haven’t done in freezer meals during April. I have a couple of things that I like to make for quick meals — a turkey chili and some chicken/bean wraps — but I haven’t done them. This is on my list for May. [Read more…]
