Oh also, my first goal is to lose 14 lbs by the 1st week of July. Also to eat the amount of calories I was told to eat and no less. The hot weather is here and now I need to plan on getting my calories from salad, fruit and grilled foods. Hard to get the calories from salads and I can not eat alot of fruit due to the high sugar and potassium in a lot of them.
1. Lose 14 lbs by July
2. Eat calories of 1200-1400
3. Do exercise bike and treadmill even on days I do heavy work outside and swim. Remember my body gets use to the work.
4. watch my salt and potassium intake.

Well I already make a grocery list but it is for 2 weeks. That is when my husband gets paid. My pantry is cleaned and organized for me and then the rest of my family. They can eat stuff I cant. My goal is to learn how to notice where my salt is coming from and to learn that I can not eat processed foods unless it is no salt added and no sugar added. I do great most of the days but when it comes to stuff like pizza (a blue moon food for me) it is just not the same if you make it homemade. I am also looking forward to learning new recipes too. So as for the grocery list, it is completed except for the things I run out of during the week, like TP, lol.
I also need to get in exercise mon - fri no matter how much I hurt. Just do it, if not all at one time them spread it out during the day.
Also try to record food on weekends. This is hard because I am really busy on the weekends.

I have to admit my kitchen didn't need any reorganizing, I'm a little OCD so no worries there. There are some great ideas in the goals of other members I've read and I'm gonna have to steal a few. These are my goals:
- Keep platter of fruit on the counter and snack from it
- create a stash of tasty healthy recipes that are affordable too.
- go to the grocery store once a week instead every other
- use more fresh produce instead of canned or frozen
- make-over some of our family favorites to be healthier
- Snack more during the day on better things

My goals may seem a bit strange because I have unique dietary needs due to illness. So please don't think I'm crazy, especially for the sodium, it seriously is a dietary plan that has been Rxed by a hospital and a dietitian (and don't try this at home, hahaha).

1. Do better at actually getting my 5000 mg of sodium a day by planning my meals in advance INCLUDING how I will get my salt each day.
2. Plan all 5 of my mini-meals daily, including either having one 250 calorie meal at lunch or dividing a heavier lunch into two mini-meals, instead of eating one big lunch and then failing to get in all of my mini-meals that day.
3. Reach my 1000 calorie goal every day but don't go more than 200 calories over, ESPECIALLY if the overage is from less nutritionally dense foods.
4. Make sure to get at least one serving of the Boost Plus every day.

I tried every diet in the book. I tried some that weren't in the book. I tried eating the book. It tasted better than most of the diets.

This is the end of week one and I feel good about the healthy meals I have fixed. I did fix a big meal today, had guest for dinner. I'm pretty sure my calorie totals suffered a bit, but I just have to push to exercise a bit more to combat that. I've enjoyed the changes to healthy eating with more fruits and vegetables and have tried healthier versions of some of the old favs. I hope to push up the exercise more on week two and hopefully those stubborn pounds will start to disappear. I always lose inches before I lose pounds for some reason. Haven't figured that out yet, but all is good as long as I can lose!

My goals would to cook at least 2 healthy meals and to use vegetables and replace fat laden foods with a better alternative ingredient. I've been eating more fruits and vegetables for 5 days now and I can feel the difference already. Drinking 8 glasses of water really is one of the most difficult things for me to do, but I am trying very hard. Have a good Easter everyone!

My goals are pretty simple.

1. Always have that easy back up meal to go to so I won't fall into the "Oh let's just get Chinese food!" trap.

2. Use meat as an ingredients instead of a main item.

3. Prep on the weekend to get a leg up on the week.

Good luck to all!

My goals are to make sure I plan dinners and do as much pre-cooking as possible when I have the chance on the weekends or days off. This will make it easier for me when I go to the gym during the week. I also would like to try to lower my sodium intake; no high blood pressure but it seems there is sodium in everything (even in yogurt, why?). Finally, I would like to try some new recipes, especially those that are quick, easy and tasty.

My goal is to get back to more salads and fresh fruits.
Yesterday I cleaned the food cabinets and rearranged some things and am pleased with the result. I also found a "home" for the blender and rice cooker so they're not on the cabinet any longer. I really didn't think there'd be enough space in the cabinets for these, but now there is. After I cleaned this cabinets I polished the outside of the cabinets, so that part of my spring cleaning is finished, too. This whole project took less than 2 hours.
I also want to get back to trying new recipes again, so my goal is to try one new one a week. I'll build from there.

My goal for this challenge is to get my kitchen more organized and plan more meals. I already plan my breakfast and lunch, but not dinner, I just eat whatever I have on hand. I would like to boost my cooking skills by trying new recipes and cooking more often to hone the small skills I already have. Also because I like to have a challenge that keeps me focused on the good stuff!

I joined this challenge because I love challenges. They help me put my thoughts into action. In January I challenged myself to eat NO sugars (sugar, syrup, honey, etc), no refined carbohydrates, no fruit juices, and I never eat artificial sweeteners. I cannot tell you how much better I felt that month, plus I lost 6 lb, though I didn't limit any other foods or count calories, and I ate whenever I felt hungry. Even better, that weight stayed off. I want to do a similar thing in May. Cooking healthy is a passion and this challenge will kick that up a notch. One thing I want to do with this challenge is eat 2 lb of veggies every day. It's not as much as you would think. This morning's breakfast was toasted quinoa and flax seeds, plain kefir, tons of fresh strawberries, and a little stevia mixed together, and a tall glass of water with half a lemon squeezed in it. Yummy, satisfying, nutritious, and I feel energetic.

I want to learn how plan my meals better. I go grocery shopping without a list and just pick up what see & like and end up throwing away a lot of produce that I don't get to use.

When I had to cook for a lot of food allergies I cooked everything at home from scratch because there were no other options. Now that I'm not cooking for allergies and have had issues with fatigue I got in the habit of eating out, eating snack foods for meals, or eating frozen meals. I anticipate that I'll still need to keep some frozen meals on hand just in case, but I need to get back in the habit of cooking from scratch again.

We've been cooking healthy for some time now, but since there's always room for improvement, I'm looking for

1) new recipe ideas
2) learning more about substitutions, and
3) tips and tricks for the healthy kitchen.

I've been making weekly meal plans for a few years now. Sometimes they stick and sometimes we end up going out. But the more I stick to it, the better it works. I need to not add anything to my plan. The in-between snacks are a killer. And I also need to find healthier and tasty ways to make my family's favorites. They are my worst critics!

I am just starting this challenge. I'm really pleased with my shopping this week. I bought a lot of vegetables and some fruits. Bagged salad, toms, green onions, celery, carrots, radish ect. I made spaghetti this week--I boiled boneless skinless chicken, some prego sauce and the real kick is I cooked a spaghetti squash for the first time. I used this instead of pasta--wow it tasted great I did not feel I was missing anything. I've made scrambled egg whites instead of whole eggs. 17 cal. each rather than 70! 1/2 ounce of cheese instead of the whole block. Whole grain english muffin instead of bread. I am just working hard to make healthy substitutes. It takes a lot of thought, but it will be worth it. I made a dessert to satisfy my sweet tooth. Frozen black cherries, vanilla yogurt, some cool whip and mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. I blended it in the food processor and put it into the freezer. Spread on graham crackers it is very satisfying. Well I think I have gone on for probably too long. Cheers! Gina

My goals for the challenge are these.

1. Eat as a family at the table at least 4 days a week.
2. Prepare one new healthy meal each week.
3. Eat out no more than 2 times a week (prefer less but baseball season is coming up and that could mean some late nights.)
4. To go with the above search for some good meals to prepare ahead for those late nights.

My weekly goal is to cook 2 healthy, wonderful meals and include my children in the activity. I love to spend time with my kids and we always spend time in the kitchen, sadly making those bad bad sugary confections that I have vowed to avoid at all costs. So my two meals will be an entree and a dessert, all completely healthy and tasty, and something the rest of the family will love!

My weekly goal is to cook at least 1 new healthy meal a week and to cook dinner together with my family every night. Also to have dinner as a whole family together at least 5 nights a week. I also want to try to make 2 of my "normal" dinners a bit healthier every week. Looking to start eating better for all of us!

my goals for the challenge is to get back into cooking. Have had a lot of emotionally challenging things happen since about August and have been fighting depression.

Goal is to COOK! at least 2 new meals.
Stay on top of the kitchen.
Plan what I am going to eat and shop accordingly.

Ideally the ultimate goal of mine for the challenge is to baby step back into doing things that I used to do to remain healthy.

Hello fellow challengers-

My goal for this week has been to plan out my meals, go to the grocery store with a list of t he exact items I need and not to buy other items, and to cook at least 4 meals this week, as I am learning not only how to cook healthy- but how to cook period! Best way is this way if you ask me. I won't even know how to cook unhealthy food!

Hi Everyone!! My goals for the week:
- try 1 new recipe (so far so good)
- plan out meals for the week (so far just planning out the next day but hoping to spend some time in the next day or two planning multiple meals and rotate)
- read 3 healthy articles a week

My goal was to make at least 1 new recipe (I've already tried 4!), bring a healthy lunch everyday to work (worked so far for day 1), & plan my week's meals (did that, too!). So far I've already exceeded my expectations...now I just need to maintain what I've started! :)
