Nix the fix journal
Well, I didn't think that the nix the fix week would be too hard - we typically don't eat dessert or white bread and pasta. But it is when you having to keep track of every little bit that you begin to realize how quickly those things (especially white sugar) begin to sneak into your eating. Only one day did I actually get all 10 bonus points, all the rest of the days I had one meal that was a no-no. That was pretty good actually considering we had company half the week, and so some of my bigger size meals used white noodles in them. However, I have been changing more and more of my recipes over to whole wheat noodels and grain bread. I made a blueberry breakfast casserole on Tuesday morning, and substituted the whole wheat bread. It was delicious - I would not go back to using white bread. I saw only 1/2 lb weight loss, but actually was very happy with that as I have been having a hard time losing any at all. Hopefully last week helped us all to look more closely at what we put into our mouths and make some better choices!
