Eat this, avoid that?
I know it sounds silly to some ppl but I am the type of person that needs a plan. I need someone to say "Eat these foods at this time but avoid eating these foods EVER again" I need a structured plan or something that is plain, written out that I can follow that will work for me.
I know there are basics such as don't eat a bag of chips or candy bars etc but I need help on other things. I was following fat smash and that was going great and then I transitioned into just eating better all together. I lost weight doing that but then I fell off the wagon and I am struggling big time to get back on track. So many things changed for me.
I used to be a stay at home mom before so I could fix all of my meals and had all of my safe food at my finger tips, I was able to work out whenever I wanted to and needed to because everything was here. I had everything planned perfectly, what to eat when and my workouts were in the morning after breakfast or in the evening after dinner and before shower/bed time.
Now I am working and they are odd hours, I have to be at work at 6am so I get up at 4:30am to get ready for work and leave here at 5:30a,. I don't really have time to eat in the mornings unless I grab a banana really quick. Once at work I am there until 2:30pm, I come home and have to cook dinner because my husband eats dinner before he leaves for work at 3:30pm. He leaves at 3:30 and I get my daughter off the bus at 3:45 then my son at 4:00pm. They get in the house and we have dinner then it's homework time, dishes and laundry. By the time all of that is over it's bedtime at 9pm and I am exhausted. My work is a store that has tons of junk that is very easy to just grab in a hurry.
I am not sure what to do which is why I am posting. I need a plan to follow that will help me back on track. Before when I found fat smash it was easy to start because it didn't feel too restrictive and I felt like I could def. follow it. I was excited to start and that is what kept me motivated I believe. But now that I am off the wagon I need something to inspire me again, a new plan to follow and excite me. I would do fat smash again but when I was doing it before so many ppl told me it was bad for me which is why I transitioned to different foods..
Do you guys have any plans that would be a good start? I love all fruits and veggies..I have a problem with eating way too much fruit though and that's a problem. I don't like raw veggies at all unless it's a salad. The only protein (meat) I eat is chicken. I am not a fan of pork or red meat. I hate eggs except boiled eggs. I do have a bread issue but have changed that to honey wheat bread to help a little with that. I don't drink any sodas, just iced tea and I have 1 cup of coffee in the mornings. I do drink water sometimes but with Crystal Light in it.
Any recommendations or ideas? Anything I can try?
