Week One Roundup

First, the official waist measurement, using the Official String & Measuring Tape: No change. I’m still the same size, (well, maybe a tiny bit smaller, but it’s not enough to tell for sure so I’m calling this one no change). This might sound discouraging, but I’m happy I haven’t grown. While we’ve been pretty good about eating a lot of vegetables and not much refined food there has still been some leftover holiday candy making its way into me, and some fancy coffees. Also, I haven’t started moving much yet, and I plan to do so.

Second, the pocketbook measurement: Ok. We spent $124.29 on food this week. This feeds two adults and two 16-year olds, so that’s $31.07 per person per week, not too shabby. Most of the food we bought hasn’t been eaten, or at least a large portion of it hasn’t, for example, our pantry is full of cans of beans. The two 16-year olds are boarders who we’re not subjecting 100% to our new eating journey, so some of the $124.99 went towards thing like fruit cups for their lunches.

Third and final, reading the book: I’m on page sixty reading about the “benefits” of ingredients that we’re supposed to believe are healthy. This book is fascinating, I’ll write something more detailed when I’m finished the whole thing.

  • What is Choices That Matter?

    I'm a guy named John, and I do most of the writing around here. I went from a really active lifestyle to a really inactive lifestyle very quickly and my body is noticing. On top of that I'm worried about what's happening to our planet, so, I'm trying to do something about it.

    For Christmas I received the book Food Matters, which I found very interesting and inspired me to start changing. Check out my first post for the beginning of the story.
