Is Frozen Food Healthy?

I’m trying to stay on track. The sumner weekends are rough! I try to eat healthy on weekends but so many parties and events. I’m even having hard time during the week. This past week I have bought a frozen meal for lunch everyday. I had been making my lunch for a while but these past few weeks I’ve been in the “this us better than nothing role” I know I can make a healthier more satisfying lunch but! That’s the problem no buts. I did it before and I can do it again. Frozen food usually has too much salt and too many carbs. I try to stick to healthy brands with whole grains. Today’s lunch is Kashi Red Curry Chicken. I will probably add a hand full of nuts. I wish I had thrown in a cup or two of spinach. Well tomorrow I will start again. The important part is not give up. Do you have a favorite frozen meal ?

Planning is the key to weight loss

Ok I’ve been planning my meals or a while. I plan what I will eat for lunch and make it the night before. I have good healthy food available so I can cook a quick and easy meal. Was this really planning? Yes compared to how I used to eat. Grab whatever was local. Hawaiian barbecue is a favorite. I then moved to frozen food. I’d grab a carefully picked frozen meal out the fridge on my way out the door in the morning. That has now changed to making my lunch. I can see I have evolved. That is what is important for life long changes. I can’t ever see running to Hawaiian Barbeque with 10 minutes to spare for lunch. I see how important it is to make baby steps for me. I now need to move to better planning. I have ended up with too many calories at night. I never thought of planning the day. It would be easy to plan if I exercised in the morning but I don’t. That might change eventually but now it’s not working for me. I now plan what I eat the day the night before. Of course I can’t do this every day and things will change but it has helped me stay on track with eating enough calories. I don’t think I could have done this earlier in this journey . I now really want to exercise. Before it was I will probably do this today .I didn’t want to count the calories early . This is tricky.! Now I really need to exercise.  No big I really want to.
