So happy to see the weekend before us even though I will be dieting…but I have been empowered with new vision! I have said often JENNY CRAIG’S FOOD PLAN fits my life right now…very busy. Being told what to eat and given the food, is perfect when I am rushing from job to job and responsibility to responsibility.
However, during the last two weeks…I kind of hit a wall of food fatigue. I have been on the plan since June 13 and repeated several menus. When I confessed to struggling with food during a visit with my JENNY CRAIG CONSULTANT, she asked two questions:
1. Are you taking time to eat by putting the food on a plate and sitting down? (I’m picturing my zap and run life) Nope not doing this.
2. Are you taking time to add extra veggies and approved seasoning to mix things up a bit? (I stir it in the plastic container, does that count?)Nope not this either.
She smiled and suggested that I begin to make these meals special again, like I did in the beginning. And, you know, she is exactly right. I have not taken time to be creative lately.
This week will be different… my CHICKEN SALAD will see a few olives and red peppers…my CHEDDAR CHEESE OMELET will see some green chiles…my BREAKFAST SCRAMBLE will see some peppers and mushrooms. My morning snack will see some Greek Yogurt. And my dinnertime, will be seated with a plate and some veggies on the side. I am the one who needs to be spicing things up a bit…because I have more to lose! Also, we selected a special menu this week fashioned by me! I am looking forward to seeing how this does on the scales next week! I just need to slow down and smell the food (and coffee)…it smells great!
