20 day check in

So it’s been 20 days. 20 days of eating mostly healthy foods and exercising. I won’t lie, I’m not depriving myself of all things delicious, but I have cut way, way back. Baby steps. I’ve been walking a lot. I try to make my goal of 6000 steps a day. I also learned that I…

Tonight’s Dinner: Salmon, Rice, and Roasted Asparagus

So tonight’s Dinner was super delicious. We had pan seared salmon, with rice and roasted asparagus. I used to make it all the time but I stopped because Salmon had become too costly here. But yesterday, while grocery shopping, I saw that they had some wild caught Alaskan Salmon on sale, so I bought a…

Beginning of Change

I’ve been overweight most of my life. I’ve never been a very active person, and as a child and teenager, I would have rather had my nose in a book or my pencil to my art pad, than play basketball, or soccer. I also had bad eating habbits. I’ve struggled with my self-esteem for about…

Baby Pancakes

Two posts in one day?! *gasp!* Yes, its a second post, but I was just so excited about these that I had to share. Little L loves pancakes. On early mornings when I’m feeling well, I’ll fix his daddy some pancakes for breakfast, but because they’re covered in syrup, L doesn’t get more than 2…

Spring Cleaning part 1

This week I’ve been spring cleaning our upstairs. I hate cleaning. HATE it. I would much rather go outside with L and have fun, but it has to be done eventually I suppose. We’ve been blessed by our friends with little boys and they’ve given us a lot of their gently used baby clothes. But…
