Not 100% happy with my accomplishments today, have not gotten in all my workouts that I planned. Just not enough energy to do everything I had intended. Although I did finish somethings: finished combining the kids rooms and reorganizing so my dad will have somewhere to sleep besides the couch, managed to get some dishes washed (I absolutely hate washing dishes), and cleaned off my messy cluttered counter and finally made french toast with cinnamon that I have been wanting for over a week, shoveled our driveway as well and fit in some strength training which I think I might need to up the weights they seem to easy now. But didn't get my walking DVD in like I planned, nor did I finish the housework. But I got to remember my goals lately are to think positive, just think about the stuff I did get done not the stuff I didn't. Hubby has tomorrow off, so I'm going to kick the kids outside, and kick him off to working on the house next door so we can hopefully move in sooner rather than later, and I'm going to spend some time chilling out to some music and my workout routines. Might even try to squeeze in some afternoon sledding with the kids since we got all that fresh snow. Also I seemed to have hit a weight loss plateau, will be my first one and not sure how to overcome it other than being consistent and persistent. I still really want to be under that 190 mark before Valentine's Day. I'm at 192.2 well maybe a couple pounds over due to wonderful bloating, can't wait for that to be done. But it's 3 weeks away, and I feel like I might not be able to make it. Which gets me frustrated. So got to keep busy, got to keep positive. Anywho, going to work on some healthier options for super bowl sunday, hubby isn't to sure about that, he likes the high fat lots of junk kind of thing for it. I told him, I wouldn't change it much just enough to make it a decent day for me where I can enjoy the game with him and the kids. Eh, husbands. LOL! Also, realizing since I'm not craving fast food anymore I no longer have that as part of my goals, but I need new ones. I feel naked without those goals to strive for. Almost wish I had more bad habits to banish. Nah, no I don't. I love drinking water, and not craving junk food and such. It's so wonderful. If anyone has any goal ideas, I would love to hear them. Thinking about trying a eat 3 servings of fruits and 3 servings of vegetables a day, especially since I hate most of them. Should get off my butt and make the asparagus I have in the freezer. Well need to get moving, planned on a movie night with the hubby. Wishing everyone a fantastic and wonderful weekend. Keep Sparking.

    Something I find fun and interesting is trying some new foods that are healthy. I have recently found Chia seeds for example. Then I make a recipe with that food in it.
    A goal you could make is losing a certain amount of weight by a certain time. Plan for a small amount of weight, like 5 pounds in one month or something.

    Maybe a goal could be to try a new recipe weekly that has more veggies or fruits.

    Have you ever tried drinking the "green" shakes Dr. Oz recommended? I don't add all the stuff he suggested, but I LOVE my morning "green" shake that really isn't that green anymore.

    I add:
    Strawberries, 1/2 banana, 2-3 prunes, light yogurt, spinach, Diet V-8 splash, and Ice. I LOVE IT.

    Have a great weekend.

    Fruit & veggie daily goals are awesome! I still have trouble sometimes just getting the 5 in, while other days I just blow it outta the water!
