Since I'm admitting to eating junk food, I also had Chipotle Wednesday for lunch (so did the munchkins). Oh and ice cream two nights ~ Breyer's, so no, not organic even. I'm pretty sure I even ate some cool whip on a dessert yesterday at a meeting yesterday, which is one of the fakest foods ever (that stuff is gross, how did we ever decide to accept it over the real thing?). There may even be more, I'm afraid to think too hard about it.
I'm far from having this real food thing down, but it's a journey of improvement, not perfection. I hope. I can definitely tell a difference in the way I look and feel today. My skin looks awful, my body is both hungry and bloated, and I just generally feel exhausted. It's amazing that I will eat so poorly even though I know it will have a negative effect on me.
I think that part of the issue, for me, is conquering meal planning. I use a service for weeknight meal planning (it's The Fresh 20)*, because I'm not very organized otherwise. It's worked out incredibly well for me. I love the fact that they do the planning for me and all I have to do is buy the ingredients and cook them.
Then other days come up. Days where we are gone all day and there's no time to cook. Days where I just don't want to cook. Days when I decide to entertain, but fail to plan more than that. Weekends when I forgot to plan/buy/create some type of family meal. These situations seem to come up regularly and I have finally decided that I will try to plan ahead by freezing some slow cooker meals to have on the days when I know I won't be able to cook. That way it's easy to have an alternate plan without resorting to take out or fast food.
* I was not compensated in any way for mentioning my favorite meal planning site. I like them and use them. If you want to try it out, there are often Groupons available to make it even more affordable.
