So the weight loss continues at a slow but steady pace. The exercise has been not so good; I was doing fine until I re-injured my back. Now it’s just an excuse.
I’ve started getting up early to get PalKid to kindergarten. I suppose I could get up just a bit earlier and ride the bike. I’m not looking at exercise as a weight loss tool, but as a way to regain good health.
My morning meal is generally a high fiber cereal, oatmeal, or a bagel. Earlier I was doing eggs, but I got tired of the extra time and effort. The key to the cereal is a small serving size. I do OK until lunch and usually avoid snacking. At lunch I most often have a chicken ceasar salad with oil and vinegar, or sometimes a banana-strawberry smoothie from Starbucks. I may snack a bit during the day with a piece of fruit, and at dinner I’ll often have another salad. When I get home in the evening I sometimes have a bit of a carb-fest.
Either way, it’s working for me just fine, in that I’m losing weight, and I feel like my habits are sustainable.
