Staying On Track

A new year means a news start and for others it just means continuing good habits or improving from last year. Some Texomans began New Year’s at the local grocery store.

Newschannel 6 talked to some shoppers at United Market Street about their plans to continue eating healthy through 2014.

Meghan Hoover, a regular shopper at Market Street said she ate healthy in 2013, but fell off towards the end of the year.

"You always start out good but at the end of the year you kind of slack on meal planning,” said Meghan.

In 2014, Meghan said she wants to stick to eat healthy and try not to veer of course.

“One of my goals is to pre-plan for the week ahead. That way we don’t eat so much processed stuff,” said Meghan.

Meghan said she has two kids and planning ahead sometimes can be a little difficult. 

“I got a three-year-old and a one-year-old and to sit down and to do a menu and then to come home and cook at night, it takes effort,” said Meghan.

Nicole Storsetch, a shopper at Market Street knows all too well the difficulty of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. One day she said she made a decision to change her eating patterns and has not turned back sense.

“The main thing would be to plan ahead. To make sure that you are making a menu for the week and buy the food ahead of time so you’re not just grabbing stuff quickly that’s bad for you,” said Nicole.

Nicole said since starting to be health conscious she has learned different things about eating.

“I think the main thing that I have learned is to eat higher protein to keep you full longer [eat] lots of fruits and vegetables,” said Nicole.

However, Nicole said she has learned that it is okay to break your routine sometimes.

“Try to avoid sweets, but also say that it’s something that can have occasionally, so that you don’t get crazy about it and give up everything,” said Nicole.

According to Forbes.com, another way to motivate individuals to eat healthy is by purchasing items that will not only be healthy to eat, but also save you money in the long run.
