Our car is on the fritz. It may have something to do with this freezing weather . . . brrrrr. But that meant our family outing today would have to be via train. So, we found a destination and planned our trip and ran . . . literally, to the train station. It felt really good to be able to jog that distance in this below freezing weather. Wow! Who would have thought. . . We spent an awesome day walking around Berlin and Legoland with the kids and rounded it up with a nice leasurely walk home from the train station.
So, without wheels this week, it looks like my pedometer will be getting some extra miles in. With all of the ice we have had lately, they have lots of fender benders to fix at the garage, so it will be a while before we get our looked at.

I never considered myself an emotional eater, but you know what, when things went crazy today, I was left with a craving for an ice cold Pepsi. Well, no Pepsi in the house. The car is broken and the gas station doesn't have them (experience).
So instead, we went on a long walk in the winter wonderland that surrounds me. So, the ice cold part worked out, but the Pepsi part had to go.

Goal number one for 2010:
More fresh foods. Still working on that fresh fruit and veggy goal at every meal. Breakfast is my worst pitfall. If I do not plan a fresh fruit or veggie the day before, I just skip over it in the morning. Lunch and supper are going well. We are using the juicer more and adding lots of green veggies to the juice. The kids drink it and hubby and I love it.
So, lunch was taco pizza with lots of fresh veggies piled on top. Supper is salad. Now, for breakfast tomorrow . . .

Ooops. I forgot the fresh side of breakfast. Good thing there is a second breakfast in German. That means I still have a chance to make good on my whole food commitment. It must be sinking in somewhere though. My daughter chose an apple and a yoghurt for breakfast this morning. Yippee! If you would have offered me that as a kid, I would have wondered what planet you were coming from, and it was her idea, not mine. I guess that is the cue I needed. I think I will go for a bell pepper though. I had never thought of it as a breakfast food before my kids started attending preschool here. The first day that I saw them serve the kids pepper strips for breakfast I thought that was so weird. But now I know it is a great source of vitamin C and low in sugar. So, off to go eat a bell . . . . pepper that is.

My challenge for the week comes from Women's Day. In order to get enough fruits and veggies, I need to have a piece of fresh fruit or a veggy at every meal and every snack. Lunches and Suppers are no problem. They always have enough, but my breakfast is void of fruits and veggies and my snacks usually are too. So that is my new goal for the week. Lifestyle change #1 - fresh whole foods at every meal and snack. Here goes - veggies, veggies everywhere.
