After several years of not being able to wrap my head around being healthy, I’m in a good place now and working on improving my diet. I’m meeting with my therapist every couple of weeks about my progress, I’ve joined a DietBet for motivation, and I’m tracking what I eat on MyFitnessPal.
The best change though has been deciding to make Sundays my food prep days, getting some inspiration from a blog called Green Plate Rule (which sadly does not seem to be very active), and using Sundays for not only grocery shopping, but cooking up a bunch of stuff that M. Hubby and I can eat during the week. One of my big discoveries is how easy it is to roast a bunch of stuff at once in the oven. Just brush chicken breasts, veggies, or what have you with olive oil, stick it on a foil lined tray in a 450 degree oven, go do some stuff for a while, and come back to delicious roasted treats. M. Hubby likes food prepared that way, too, which is good because he can be a picky eater.
So this makes for a long and tiring Sunday of domesticity (I call it being in my Hausfrau mode), but it makes the rest of the week soooooo much easier. When we get home from work in the evening, we can just heat up whatever I made on Sunday. I have started losing some weight, which I needed to do for health reasons (my doctor will be happy), and M. Hubby said he is feeling better from eating this way.
