Back in the Groove

So today is Day 1 of clear the freezer and eat healthy.

Here’s what we ate:

Breakfast was scrambled eggs with leftover cooked ham

Lunch was salad with tuna and a bit shredded cheese for me. The kids had some deli turkey wrapped around a cheese string with fresh cherries and crackers

 

 

Supper was a new dish we tried called Cowboy Grub which we all loved and it made tons of leftovers

 

Snacks we had some popscicles, baby carrots and hummus, crackers and tzaziki, watermelon and cherries.

 

Now of course I didn’t spend the whole day in the hot kitchen I also had some fun in the sun. The kids and I got out our jump ropes and played. I forgot how much fun it was to jump rope and sing songs.

 

After dinner it was time to head to my new gym and get my sweat on. I have to say my new gym has a great workout vibe going on compared to most gyms I’ve been to. Here’s a pic of me doing a circuit at the new gym. I have to say I feel like making simple meals and working out this week has made life much easier and actually given me more time to play and homeschool the little ones.

Let’s Catch Up

As usual time has gotten away from me recently. I always think of things will slow down eventually but the truth is life is alway busy and I need to make this blog more of a priority.

So what’s happened since the last time we spoke? Well tons of things. I’ve had a minor surgery, had my parents visit from back east, finished and restarted the homeschool year. Joined a new gym, maintained my weight loss and much much more.

As much as it’s fun catching up I want to make this blog post about something that I am passionate about. Those of you that know me know I have a passion for cooking and I tend to buy a ton of groceries with the intentions of making a bunch of different meals. I’ve had a few people say oh if only healthy eating wasn’t so expensive. Well consider that a challenge accepted! I want to empty my freezers to make room for a butcher order so this is going to make this challenge double the fun. I want to only make food based on what I have at home. If I buy anything I will upload the receipts to the blog. The only thing I will tell you I will be buying probably weekly is milk, other then that lets empty the frozen veggies, fruits and everything else from the freezer. I will let you know what I’ve cooked every day for meals and snacks. Let the creative juices start to flow so I can feed my family healthy and delicious meals without spending a fortune 🙂
