I am absolutely ashamed and appalled at how we've eaten in the last month. Two nights a week, neither *B* nor I are home. He has school and I work a second job. We both tend to (separately) grab food out. In the interest of full disclosure and public shaming into changing my behavior, this is what we've eaten in the month of March to this point according to my calorie tracker:
26 Peanut butter sandwich, banana, coffee
27 Cube steak, potatoes, and peas
28 Peanut butter sandwich, cashews, cheeseburger, fries, apples
You can absolutely see where Saturday night's epiphany happened. Tonight was a bit of a blip. I got a Happy Meal after I ate my packed dinner. I was starving! At least I only got a small supplimental meal. Usually that burger and fries is massive. But next time (Monday) I'll be more prepared with a bigger home-packed meal.
In the next few months, I want to try something new. Starting the first of April, I'm going to keep track of all of the groceries that we purchase and use. That way, I can get a better idea of what foods we like and what foods we don't like.
At the same time, I'm going to limit our food purchases to only real, whole foods. This idea is not new. When *B* and I originally read Michael Pollan's books and Sally Fallon's Nourishing Traditions, I was all for responsible food. We slacked off in the year and some since then, and our monthly menu shows it. But I found a website, 100 Days of Real Food, that helped me find my way again. I plan on taking the 10 day pledge starting this Sunday. I'm really hopeful about this, and I'm really excited! Good food here we come!
