Today was a nice day!

I wasn't productive concerning school, but I spend the whole afternoon at the zoo with my daughter and my friend. I love that I can be active like this and not get tired or worn out like I used to (though I wore old tennis shoes, so my feet were killing me!)

My new life-goals are to incorporate more fruits and veggies in my diet and to drink more water. I used to drink ZERO glasses of water a day... for a long time. But lately I have been weaning myself INTO water... It went from a few glasses a day, to 9 on some days. Today it was 4. I also used to not think of fruits or veggies when planning picnics. I have been eating apples (which I used to never touch but now love), green beans, even slightly salted sweet potatoes... And I'm shocked that I like these additions. They're filling and tasty. If anyone has any tips on other fruits and veggies, please let me know!

My insight of the day is that I'm much happier and I feel much better now that I'm eating and acting healthier.

    I add spinach into my protein shake to get some veggies in and you cant even taste it!

    I LOVE spending the day at the zoo. What an awesome time for you and your daughter.

    There are tons of ways to incorporate fruits and veggies into your diet. I found a dried pasta that HyVee sells (their brand) that has 1 serving (1/2 cup) of veggies in each 2oz serving of pasta. Also, Kraft has a veggie mac & cheese mix that I've tried - my kids couldn't tell the difference. It's just a lot of trial & error to find what works for you.

    You've got a good start on increasing your water, fruit & veggie intake.
