I’m still reading Eating Animals. It’s good but it isn’t the quickest book to get through. While organizing on Thursday I found my old copy of Micheal Pollen’s Food Rules.
I bought it when it first came out years ago and I reread it last night because it is such a quick read. It’s like all of the other food books I read in a small tidy version with out all the “sciencey” stuff.
I have a good idea of the things I want to purchase when I grocery shop. Since I will be cutting back on meat I plan to only purchase tilapia and salmon (maybe shrimp) and a good variety of fruits and vegetables. I will also purchase quinoa which I was happy to learn is a seed not a grain. I’ve been thumbing through some recipe books and have a few recipes in mind.
I also got on the scale because I couldn’t help it and was down 3.5 pounds. Yay! I won’t weigh again until my regularly scheduled weigh in day. I kinda had the feeling that if I finally got my portions under control I could start losing. My first mini goal is to get back down to my lowest weight of the year which was on 245.5 on 1/23/13. Only 5.5 pounds to go. Yay, for eat less, move more!
How did you achieve your weight loss goal this week?
