It has been eleven days since “Doctor’s orders” are to get my cholesterol and blood pressure lower. The attempted diet is going fairly well, yes I’m cheating a bit because I’m really hungry. This is my protein charged lunch from Thursday, white meat chicken salad, red beets, and chickpeas.
It was actually pretty good, a tall coca-cola would have been nice but I stayed with green tea and lemon.
The big question I ask myself is how did I get here? Since I’ve eased into retirement I eat more at home taking control of the salt and sugars. In the past, I would pull back on calories when I noticed my dresses and skirts getting a bit snug. That’s when it dawned on me. Since I am only working from home now I wear comfortable clothes like jogging pants and leggings. The wider I get the more they stretch.
With all kidding set aside, I am serious about taking care of my health. Any tips for these common ailments would be appreciated.
I find 2 poached eggs to be super great at controlling my hunger for many hours. If you are allowed eggs, maybe try that, or hard boiled in a salad with diet dressing.
thank you, I will try that
Ooh! I can identify with that! I wear mostly stretchy, comfortable clothes at home now that I have retired. Your lunch looks yummy, except for the beets. I am not a red beet person, but they are very popular right now!
The lunch looks yum! I usually eat hard boiled eggs (without the yolk) to keep my hunger in check!
That’s a good idea thanks need all the help I can get
Wish you all the best and hope you feel great again soon!❤️
