This week I've reaaally been trying to watch my food/calorie intake.
I've worked out 4 or 5 days IN A ROW. That's HUGE for me! I HATE working out!
On Tuesday I had girlfriends over for a food swap. We each bulk prepared some small healthy snack or breakfast thing for everyone to take home and have throughout the week. Could be as simple as cups of fresh fruit, which I've thoroughly been enjoying each morning for breakfast, along with a baked oatmeal muffin and then fabulous little energy bites in the afternoon. Yumm. It was a fun way to support each other in our efforts to live healthier.
Speaking of that, I tried this green smoothie I found on Pinterest. It was surprisingly good! Even though it has spinach in it, it just tastes like pineapple-banana. In fact, that'll probably be my lunch again tomorrow. ALTHOUGH the kids are all home and they love it too and they'll steal it all from me! So perhaaaps I'll share. Ya know, since it IS healthy n all.
AND speaking of other green things, I've been busy dying rice green. If you attend our local MOPS group, you'll soon find out why on Tuesday! =) hehe
This week I've ALSO managed to get my butt out of bed early in the morning to do a few minutes of Bible reading before that first set of feet come down the stairs. I'm reading through Acts, because it's just one of those books I've never really read. So far I've learned several neat tidbits that can be applied to today life.
Tomorrow Eli is off school and I'm excited to just hang at home.
T - 1 week until I leave for CHICAGO for girl's weekend! Woohooooo!!!
Life is good.
