No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
It seems like ever since I lost my job, I have come unanchored. Off-track. Even though I am taking 2 classes and an internship, I still feel lost.
This is most obvious in my meals. Or lack of. The kids have been getting sandwiches for dinner more often than I want to admit. I have been eating little bits of things here and there, without a plan. This is insane, which hasn't hit me until I just read that. What are you doing, Jennifer?
I got on the scale this morning and it read 158 and I was like "huh" and then a minute later I realized "ohmygod, that is practically 160!!!!" What is going on here??
At the end of last week I came down with a cold quite suddenly. And along with the general malaise I also experienced a disconnected feeling around food. I had no anxiety about what I ate - and not in a good way. In fact, the only feeling I had was misery. I did not run. I ran out of kleenex. My nose hurt. My head hurt. Everything hurt.
I am feeling a bit better today, enough to know I need to make a plan that I can follow for meals. The complicating factor is that my husband and I are fairly new vegetarians. The kids are not. And I did low-carb for the last year, so I have a head full of food rules that I need to sift through every time I try to decide on a meal. It can be so overwhelming.
How do any of you plan your meals? Do you do it weekly? Do you plan each meal and snack? Give a girl some help!
