Lifestyle Change

When we had a female roommate, it was generally easy  to remember to eat healthy. She and I are similar in size, and needed similar amounts of food, and, since we’re close friends, we often ate together. Now, though, I’m eating all my dinners with Chris (and I’ve mentioned before that he doesn’t consider dinner a meal unless it is hearty and contains a meat product). I put on some weight, and I haven’t felt as great, and need to remind myself that I need smaller portions than he does… and that if he wants something fatty, and I don’t, we can prepare our own dinners.

At any rate, I’ve been tracking my calories (and fitness) on this website, which I highly recommend. Some days I’m over my allotment, but not by much, and it’s helped me to be a little more conscious of things like having an extra beer or cookie when I don’t want one that much.

Tonight, I’m having a vegetarian friend over for dinner, and using it as an excuse to start cooking more meatless meals (I’ve been considering this Meatless Monday concept). I’m going to try and prepare this vegetarian lasagna. I’ll post whether it’s worth repeating.

    • It was really tasty! I should’ve taken a picture! One suggestion I have would be to add a little extra sauce. The no-bake noodles stayed crunchy on the edges because the recipe doesn’t call for quite enough liquid.
