Things I want to try/change

I've made great strides in a lot of areas, but there are a few things I still want to change in my habits.

Not eating after 7:00PM. I have a terrible habit of snacking a lot at night..mostly out of boredom I think. It's usually not terrible food, but it is unnecessary.

Eating less fruit and only at breakfast. You are only *supposed* to have 2-3 servings of fruit per day. I have more like 5-6. I am determined to only eat fruit at breakfast.

Make breakfast larger and other meals smaller. Currently I've been eating a medium breakfast, Large lunch and small to medium supper. I'd like to make it a large breakfast, medium lunch and small to medium supper.

Eliminate all bananas. I can't have them. It's a trigger food. (but just for more bananas) I can't eat just one. I thought I'd be stronger now, but I can't. They are a high glycemic food anyhow.

Be more aware of the GLycemic Index of my food. Because I have PCOS I am supposed to eat a lower GI diet. I haven't worried about this too much because I had to worry about a lot of other things. But it's probably time I start thinking more about this. Naturally I already eat a pretty low carb diet, but there is room for improvement.

These aren't goals per se, but just areas that I'd like to improve on. I've been doing so well that they aren't currently NECESSARY for anything, but ways I think will help me continue to feel great!!

Have a Satisfying Saturday - I'm off to Pilates!!


  1. Replace the fruit with vegetables you like to eat raw... doesn't take more time and has less sugar with same deliciousness! ^^

  2. I like the way you are looking at the ways you need to change. Its really important to make the changes that you need to along the way...its what makes the new you, the different person you will become. Inside much of you will remain unchanged but its the little lifestyle changes that add up to one big life difference by the end. You're doing sooo well, keep it up as I know you will
