Have I mentioned the value of routines?

Some people think the way I eat most days is wrong because it doesn't provide enough variety. I say "baloney" to that.

Every day, I eat yogurt with cottage cheese, Kashi GoLean cereal, and blueberries for breakfast. For lunch I have leftovers from dinner or a lean protein, baked sweet potato and steamed veggie. I've come to expect and plan for this.

I have "clean the kitchen" routine that includes preparing my food for the next day. So today, with so much going on - my getting ready to work from home, D bringing our cat home from the vet and dealing with the emotional turmoil from that - I still was able to eat normally.

Routines are critical to successful weight management.

And that's all I have for now.


  1. I agree. I have to plan ahead. I feel safer that way.

  2. I always plan ahead -- or at least I always plan to plan ahead. Sometimes Life has other plans, but I go back to the good routines as soon as I can.

    I remember a quote from Pasta Queen's book, something to the effect that "Waiting until you're hungry before deciding what to eat is like waiting until you're drunk before deciding to drive."
