Ick all day I've been busy helping my parents (mainly paying them the $400 I owe them --- I've paid back $282 so far) so busy in fact we've only had time to eat fast food. Gross. Today I decided instead of getting my healthier choice of grilled chicken to try a cheeseburger and let me say, it was not a good idea.
It's been like what, at least a year and a half since I had a fast food burger from Mc Donalds? Let me say, not a good idea. It obviously did not rest well with me.
Just thinking of the greasy over processed morsel makes me sick. If it were up to me I'd eat fresh fruits and veggies everyday, but since my parents only have time to go grocery shopping once in a Blue moon we have to buy long lasting food.
If I ever get my own car, I'm finding a fresh farm market. Fresh food goes fast in my house and I'd rather eat some carrots or cucumbers when I get the munchies.
Speaking of munchies, I've sworn off potato chips. Another step towards feeling healthier! In fact, I'm going to cut down overall chips.
Also, since I still need a starch, and some protein, I'm looking into eating rice on a regular basis again. My parents are looking for a sushi kit, and once they get one, they'll need a rice cooker so I probably might start eating more fish also even though I'm not too fond of it.
Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on eating healthier? I haven't had a coke since early December, and I'm hoping to go without in January. I feel great just drinking juice, tea, and water, but I'm probably going to start cutting down on the high sugar juice also this year. Last year I thought I was going to die only having one coke a month, but I lived. Now to ween myself off of other unhealthy things!
