What I Ate Wednesday #4

Here’s one of the reasons I love WIAW: it’s such a simple way to look at both the good and bad in my diet. I’m finding that I always end up eating just a little bit better after I post my meals, and not because I’m comparing myself to other bloggers. I’m not saying the improvements I make always stick, but they’re a step in the right direction.

Looking at my day of eating, I know I need to up my fruit and veggie intake, and I realize I used to eat a lot more protein before I got pregnant. That was mostly because I was lifting heavy – which I don’t plan to start again until I’ve lost some more fat – but I liked that higher-protein diet because it was so filling.

Then there’s the obvious: that chocolate cream pie isn’t doing me any favors icon smile What I Ate Wednesday #4 But I’ve finally come to the realization that I enjoy sweets way to much to pretend that I’ll ever be able to cut dessert out of my life; it doesn’t always need to be a big slice of pie, but it’s a rare occasion for me to not eat something sweet at night. Better to be realistic and just work dessert into my overall calorie intake – what can I say…chocolate makes me happy!
