Is your refrigerator staged for weight loss success? Clean out the unidentifiable leftovers and shriveled produce. Stock it with seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables as well as lean proteins.
Here are a few storage tips:
1. Keep fruits and vegetables in separate crisper drawers. Fortunately, mine are labeled so I know which is higher humidity.
2. Store foods that spoil quickly (eggs, dairy, meats, etc.) in the back of the fridge where it’s the coldest.
3. Chop up your celery, carrots, etc. for snacks and store in clear containers so you see them.
My trip to Boston was cancelled so the stress of not being in control of my meals was eliminated. I’m getting better at eating more protein and hit my 100 gm goal 3 times and got darn close another day. My protein snacks include eggs, string cheese, nuts and sliced turkey.
I don’t have a single picture of any meals this week! I won’t be cooking much this week as my husband is out of town but I’ve made a meal plan with healthy take-out options in addition to a frozen meal here or there.
I worked hard this week with exercise and eating right and it showed up on the scale. I lost .6 pound which brings the total loss to:
– 31.8 lbs.
This is the second week in a row of losses and even though it’s not in large amounts, it’s in the right direction.
I have no travel and a meal plan so feel pretty good about this week. I’m hoping to crack through the 32 pound mark next week.
How did your week towards great health go?
