I have been snacking like nobody’s business. It’s been one of those things where you’d think I couldn’t do much harm because we don’t have much to snack on, and I end up eating Hubby’s chips that I don’t particularly like or semi-sweet chocolate chips to cover a chocolate craving!
I’m still making pretty decent meals for dinner. We had some delicious baked fish with broccoli the other nights and a great Lentil soup from a recipe from Kristin J (Hubby loved it, but the way, and actually added another full tsp or more to his bowl a crazy!). Lunches, however, have been pretty bad. I lose all motivation after I get the kiddos fed and end up snacking until dinner.
This will change! I will be meal planning tomorrow because we have so much delicious healthy foods just waiting to be prepared. I have a kitchen full of chicken, sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, acorn squash, avocados, lettuce, celery, carrots, etc!
By the way, does anyone have a good acorn squash recipe? I keep buying them because they’re so cheap but the kiddos haven’t really enjoyed them yet…
I know I will be making my favorite Black and White Bean Salad/Salsa because I crave it and know I will snack healthy when I have it on hand.
Ok, so I won’t be totally down on myself. I am currently good-sore from a great circuit workout I did Monday night for Elf for Health (love my new Elf – she’s an event producer from NYC and has a totally interesting life!) I need to do more of that! I blame the time of the month and the holidays right now for my lack of control in the food department, but what’s my excuse for the lack of regular activity? I’d say kids and being a busy Momma, but that just means I need to prioritize! Maybe for tomorrow’s Elf for Health challenge “Me Time” I will get Hubby to take all the kiddos downstairs so I can get a workout in, that is if I don’t do it during nap time. Those nap times are so precious for so many things, though!
Which brings me to my final bit of news in this extra long post. I finally purchased my domain and paid for *gulp* three years of hosting! Yikes! Now I need help transferring over to WordPress without going crazy, so I think I need to spend even more to get a professional, and a great design wouldn’t hurt. Does anyone have any suggestions? I think price might end up being the deciding factor here…
Ok, so let me hear it! What were your non-scale victories for the week? Any web design or meal planning advice for me??? Are you also doing Elf for Health? What’s you “Me Time” plan?
