Resolution # 3
#3 Eat healthier. I'm not going on a diet, I don't intend to lose weight, I plan on putting less junk into my body. A month ago at the Doctor's office, she asked me what my diet is like. I had to laugh and say "horrible". It's true, I eat horribly. Not necessarily just junk food, but not enough actual meals.
I've been known to have the following for dinner, on a regular basis: cereal (always. I'm addicted), banana split, cheese fries, cheese and crackers, mac n cheese, avocado with salt, and candy.
It's bad, I just never really feel like any meals or the effort that goes into them. Don't get me wrong, I love fruits, veggies, and salads. In fact, I do eat salad for dinner quite often, just not often enough. I'm not a big meat eater either so I have a hard time getting in my protein.
This year, I'm going to try to cook more, eat more protein, and less sugar. My parents eat clean and I'll definitely be leaning more towards that style of eating. I don't have an exact meal plan but I'll probably start the day with a glass of water (resolution #2!) and a green smoothie. For lunch I'm leaning towards soup, salad, and egg or chicken salad (made with avocado instead of mayo). Dinner, I'll start cooking some things like chicken, healthier pastas, and soups. I'll be real, I'm still going to have sweets and I'm sure Taco Bell will sneak its way in there but, for the most part, I'm striving to eat better.
