I'm Back and Once A Week Cooking
I am back and I am going to try a little something different. This has been my Stampin' Up! blog with a little family thrown in, but I am going to expand and blog about other things as well. I have so many interests and so many things to share that I thought I would share a variety of odds and ends. I hope this won't be confusing or turn people away, but we will see how it goes!
Join me as I start this somewhat new journey into blogging. It is hard to do wonderful things when you use a free blog service, but I will do the best I can. This blog is pretty bare bones, but then I am not very good with the computer so I guess for now, that is OK.
So I would like to show you what I did last weekend. We have embarked on a healthier lifestyle, more about that in a minute. I decided to make our lunches and breakfasts for the week so we could grab and go and they would be healthy. No trying to figure it out as we go! I made 4 each leaving one day for something different.
I do have to get better at remembering to take pictures as I go, but this is the end result:
So the healthy life style...
We are doing this as a family.
My beautiful daughter Megan came up with this idea.
We have a chart we add points to each week.
5 servings or more of fruit and vegetables per day, 64 oz of water per day, no eating after 9:00pm,30 minutes of exercise 5x per week, Staying on track with calorie count or WW points daily, limit sweets to 3 times a week, weight/inches lost at end of week.
At the end of the month the one with the most points wins.
We are picking our own prize. We decided to make it a gift of time or labor not monetary. Example: house cleaning, baby sitting, freezer meals, help painting a room, etc.
I will keep you posted as to how it is going.
