taken it off tuesdays



Well I am on a slow train here,  I am up to 14 lbs gone though!  I had a little set back over Henry’s birthday weekend.  Possibly the Mexican food on Friday night and the Pizza we served for the party but none the less I got back on track and it may be slow but it is at least headed in the right direction.

I am so ready for Spring.  I want to walk in the evenings as a family.  I think the fresh air is so important to us all plus getting out and getting moving.  I feel so sedentary in the winter months.

I have discovered raw almonds as my favorite mid morning  and afternoon snack. I will scoop out 1/4 cup which is the suggested serving.  Yes, I said suggested serving, trust me it does make a difference.   I eat around 5 small meals throughout the day.  I have started filling my favorite yellow pitcher with water the night before and setting it in the fridge.  This way my water is super cold and it stares me in the face every time I open the refrigerator and you know I actually tend to grab it instead of something else.  Who knew?

I hope these little tid bits might be of some inspiration, remember one day at a time or maybe I should say one bite at a time.

  1. Congrats on the weight loss! And thanks for the tip on the water. Maybe if I put a pitcher in the fridge I'll guilt myself into drinking it! Here's to spring ... My tulips are poking their sweet green heads up.
