been eating fast food since my accident in March. There is no practical way for me to eat fast food right now as I can’t even drive. It’s tempting to cross off this goal as done, but I am going to leave it here for after I am back on my feet. Hopefully I will not return to my bad habits.

my most cheered goal. And one I’m afraid I’ve let slide again. So it’s time to get back on the wagon.
I am starting again with 30 days of no burgers or fries. Hopefully this first part won’t be too difficult, just a matter of being more mindful. That would be a good thing.
of no burgers, fries, or fried food. That doesn’t mean fast food is totally out of my life, I’m just choosing healthier options.
One thing that would make this easier (making the healthy choice) is for me to make a list of the acceptable options at each fast food place I frequent and choose ONLY those options. I think I will leave this on my list until I complete that.
until I hit Day 30 without fried food. And that will be about 70 days without burgers or fries. I’m looking forward to crossing this one off my liset.
In 10 more days I can say I have not had a burger or fried food in 30 days. It has been going fairly well. Now that I’m paying more attention to not eating fried food I am seeing all the other ways I could eat better. Goals for tomorrow.
No burgers or fried food. If I can make it to day 30 I think I will mark this fast food goal complete.
After my restart on 6/23 I am back up to day 9 of 30 days without fried foods or burgers. I am actually surprising myself with how well I’m doing on this one. It’s just one small category of food, but it was such a big part of my diet before.
There are many other areas of my diet in need of improvement, but if I can conquer this one I will feel a little more like a success and a little less like a failure and hopefully that momentum will carry me forward on other things.
Well today I messed up and ate not one but two food items I’m trying to avoid. I did pretty well up to today but I feel like I need a restart on this. So tomorrow I will start again with Day 1 of 30 days avoiding burgers, fries and other fried foods. The only fried food I’ve been wishing I could have is Ivar’s fish – the cod you get with fish and chips. I don’t miss the chips, just the fish. When I get my 30 days over with I will let myself have the fish as a special treat. I think one item in 30 days is doable. And it’s much better than in the past when I’ve eaten fried foods almost every day.
I’m doing well on the no fried food goal so far. After my 30 days of no burgers or fries and now adding fried food to that, I’m sure I’m a little bit healthier. But what I would like to be is minus some pounds, and that’s not happening. For me losing weight will not be a matter of food choices but of cutting back on portions. Sometimes I think “why am I bothering to do this, I’m not losing weight!” But I have to keep reminding myself “the goal is to be healthier and you have to start somewhere.”
I finished my 30 day goal of not eating burgers or fries. I let myself have a burger and fries on the 31st day. Then I started on my new goal which is “no fried foods” when eating out.
Great news – my hubby has decided to join me on “no fried foods” for 30 days. He generally eats more healthy than I do but he does have a weakness for burgers. This will be a little challenging for him but I know if I stick to it he will stick to it. How’s that for incentive.
I checked online and see that all the major fast food chains have pretty good nutrition information online. I think I will go to the web site of each chain I frequent and make myself a list of healthy choices from each. It will help if I don’t have to think too hard when I’m at that critical decision-making stage and my tummy is rumbling.
A nice side benefit to eating less fried food (starting with the burgers and fries) has been that my digestive system seems to be happier. I can only hope that so are my arteries.
