conveyor belt shopping...

Friday, August 28, 2009

you know when you go grocery shopping and you look at the person in front and behind you and what they are buying? Its either a quick look in their basket or if the put it on the conveyor belt its even better!
You look quizzically at the guy who is buying womens underwear and a pork roast.
you look at the over weight woman whose buying nothing but a trolley full of coke, chocolate, crisps, fattening ready meals and holding a leaflet on how to cook healthy
then there is the skinny woman who is kinda scary thin and she is buying celery and houmous and thats it!!

i want my shopping to look good. for people to to kind of shuffle their feet when they see it and go... wow she eats loads of healthy things and here is me holding a load of chips, chicken nuggets, ready meals and coke.

I always compare my shopping and there is always, ALWAYS! a guy in front who is buying fresh peppers, fresh fish, whole grain bread and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING classed as unhealthy! The past few weeks my shopping has been close with maybe a packet of rich tea biscuits or oven chips spoiling the "ultimate healthy shop"

i achieved my aim. oh yes! i looked down at my shopping knowing 3 things
1. i was going to eat this food, it isnt a fad. it wasnt going to be left in the fridge while i eat pizza
2.there was wholegrain bread, rice, fruits and veg, no red meat and a lot of fish
3.i had a pizza at home in the freezer. its been there 2 weeks. i have no desire to eat it. i want fish for dinner.

If there was a spark award for the ultimate healthy shop. right now i would be rolling in it. It may not seem like much to people but for me this is better than any amount of sit ups or lbs lost.

    Hm. I DO look at what others have. I have to check myself if I'm judgemental, though. I'm not ashamed of what I buy for our weekly groceries, but I do always strive to have a "healthy" shopping trip. I don't always MAKE it (especially b/c I have a 140 lb. husband with a high metabolism that eats just about anything), but ah well.

Stage 2

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

stage 2 strategy 1
1) Buy a set of measuring cups and measuring spoons
(this i will do, cos a cup of ice cream will never equal to a cup of cereal in my mind)

2) Measure all single serving sizes for the food you eat this week
(Damn that is an epically small portion of fries!)

3) Create a leftover storage system
(Its called my bin, if im going to eat between meals im going to make it difficult!)

Portions and servings
Apparently the amount of items on my plate does not equal to one serving of each....
this is going to difficult....

    This a great plan!

I recently tried a new product that Sparks Recommends. They are by "Fit & Fresh"

They really help with easy portion control!

Check them out at their website, or in the SparkStore!

Thanks for QuickFiring Your Day!
