Clean Eating

Sis Lori here: 
Okay, so my son and his beautiful fiance will be married in less than 3 weeks. I had to go out shopping for something to wear. A while back, I thought maybe I would have lost some weight by now, but no.....
So, I found a dress; it will be okay. 
My daughter has lost 11 lbs. recently by "Clean Eating",  which means barely any processed foods or fast food. 
 I don't eat out too much; I'll have a Subway sandwich once in a while - and I probably don't have a great diet. 
Mostly it is the prep. I am lazy, and I tend to make something easy or grab something quick. 
The "Clean Eating'" way is out there on Pinterest and Instagram. 
Soooooo, today I shopped and came home and did some prep.
 Here is what I have so far:
Chicken grilled on the George Foreman and steamed squash
I still have more chicken and some broccoli and Brussels sprouts to cook:

 I have lots of veggies to munch, carrots and celery, bell peppers, cauliflower:
I have baggies of red grapes, lemon and lime infused water to drink and some salad stuff:

 And I also have romaine and green leaf lettuce for salads and those Brussels sprouts and some broccoli to steam:
A few snacks:  greek yogurt, hard boiled eggs and these almonds are spicy and yummy!!!!

Have you seen these bowls from Weight Watchers for salads?? They have an ice ring in lid, a place for the dressing, and toppings. They're pretty neat - I have two - I will make the salads later.

So, I will start this and try to do prep every 5 or so days and see what I can do. Also need to work on the exercising part, uggh!! May try for a workout in my friends pool at least twice a week and start a walking program with a friend.
Wish me luck?
 Maybe by Christmas??
Who knows.
Of course, it doesn't help that I work at a frozen yogurt store 5 days a week, and we get a freebie every day, I am sooo addicted!
 Oh well.
All I can do is try.

Hi Lorlor,

Lots to lose for me, too, one day at a time. But I hang onto your determination. I know it has to become a way of life... not just a quick fix to get rid of the weight. But the weather in Gold Country is a big plus, even if it means getting up while it is cool out to get the exercise.

(yawn.... me too)
