What to do?

Last night I got got out some old mag's to look at and get some inspiration. I also pulled out my CSIRO book to have a bit of a read. I realised again that the dinner menu has stuff on it that I just don't eat, so what do you do? I'm not really good at following menu plans, I find them very restrictive, I am one of those people who needs to follow something so strictly that of course I'm going to fail. As soon as I have to waiver off the plan, I do a huge waiver, not a side step. That just sounded like a huge contradiction didn't it? What I mean is that if I am told to do something, I put my blinkers on and that's the only line I follow, once I come across a road block, say salmon with cous cous, that's it, that's me, I don't like any of that. So I might just step over that block but I seem to come to a road block the next day for dinner again as there is always something that I don't like. Why is it so hard? I want to loose the lower body weight but I am really stuck in the spot I'm already in, I can't see a way out. I am so lazy that the thought of going for a walk just makes me turn and find something else to do, the problem is that that something generally begins and ends on the couch. Even when there is nothing to watch I will just flick, whats wrong with me!

Another thought also is: have you got any ideas for healthy snacks? I am a salt addict, I am more a savoury person than a sweet. My normal idea of snacks are plain chips, butter popcorn, licorise, corn chips with salsa, you get my drift, so anything you can think of in this type of area would be perfect.

Rice crackers or rice/corn thins with salsa or other toppings.

Have a browse along the biscuit aisle and see what the options are. The trick is not so much what you eat, but how much. Really read the labels and see how much a single serve is...it's often surprising!

Or maybe make a savoury dip and have strips of raw vegies instead of chips or biscuits.
