Weekly Fitness Report- April 5th
I am really getting a fitness routine down and my eating pattern is much better. Once you really start working out you have a mind set of automatically craving foods that are better for you. Now I am finding when I want something sweet I grab an apple or an orange. With that said I also do better having these items on hand instead of a candy bar sitting on the counter. I would certainly eat the candy bar if it was there but when its not I do much better. What are the chances that I am going to get dressed, drive in the car to the grocery store and pick up the junk food at 8:00pm!

I feel I have met my goal that I put in place last week which was stop eating out as much as possible even though I have a very busy work schedule that calls for it a lot. Then if I do eat out I will pick from the healthy items on the menu. I feel I can say this is in place. There is always room for improvement but its on the right path.
How are you doing with not eating out?
This week my goal is to change what is between the lunch and dinner which would be any snacking. I work in a business were vendors bring snacks in all the time and around the clock. There are always donuts, cakes, and cookies in our kitchen. People bring in candy jars and sit around the office filled with the highest quality candy bars. So my goal this week it to really focus on healthy snacks!
How do you do with snacking?
