Setting new short goals ...

So, I've been getting back into the groove with exercise, but have not given myself a definite plan to work on. And my eating has been horrendous! In the past the holidays have been a tough time (aren't they for everyone?) I decided that I am going to stick to my plan through the holidays, making an exception for the special days. I am not setting a goal for weight loss, but would like to stick to my workout and nutrition plan for 90% of the time.

I went shopping today and got tons of fresh, healthy foods. The funny thing is I only went down like two aisles and the rest of the shopping was on the outskirts. Here's a few things I got that I am excited for:
  • Mountain Dairy vanilla yogurt ... eat plain or stir in some Harmon's flax seed with blueberry granola (YUMMY!)
  • Whole wheat pizza, the homemade kind ... It's so easy and yummy, why don't I always have the ingredients?!?
  • Manicotti made with skim milk cheeses, almost as good as the full fat version
  • Grilled turkey, provolone and avocado sandwiches (my all time fav)
  • 100% applesauce w/ cinnamon.
  • Grilled pork chops
  • Lots of fresh fruits and veggies ... I took them all out of the bags and then into the drawer. Now I can actually see what I have!
  • Tilapia ... I have a yummy (and easy) recipe for tin foil tilapia (tomatoes, lime, lemon, cilantro, dash of feta cheese)
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Lots of stir fry fixin's
Now, I'm not trying to make you hungry or jealous, but I want to remember that I have lots of good choices for when those cravings come on. Eating healthy doesn't have to mean deprivation after all. I bought a big box of mixed greens and my goal is to not let it go bad (this happens here ALL the time). So that means I have to start eating salad. I wish I was one of those who could eat salad with a little lemon juice, but I just can't ... GAG! So I got some asiago cheese dressing, that is made with fresh products and is low fat. I'm hoping it's as yummy as it sounds.
