I talked to my JC consultant today about my current economic situation. MJ and I need to cut some costs. While JC isn't exactly a luxury, it does add to our grocery bill. C and I talked about creating a menu that will meet my JC requirements. I will be able to prepare meals that I can share w/MJ and that he'll enjoy. I've done an inventory of what we have in the freezer. I've researched some recipes on Cooking Light. Now, I have to make my menu for the week. The real challenge will come in figuring how many calories I'm taking in. I'll be chronicling my adventures here. I am going to need all the help that I can get. So, please check on my progress. I cannot do this alone. If you have any lowfat ideas, I ask that you share them.
I am going to list some of the basic things that I should have every day.
8 oz. fat free milk or low fat yogurt
2 pcs. fruit
3 or more servings of vegetables
150 cal. snack like popcorn or 100 cal. pack.
8-8 oz. glasses of water
I am going to need to step up my exercising. I gave up my gym membership a while back. So any creative ideas on working out would be good as well. I enjoy walking so I will be doing that as often as I can.
Wish me luck!
