Day 24: Ready for a kitchen makeover!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

I am really excited to go grocery shopping and buy healthier options to what I already own - like cheese. I love cheese! I do not love the calories in cheese.

My husband is on board and supportive, as he always is. But he doesn't want to throw out food that we have (understandable). I am going to see if my relatives want my cheese.

My get-healthy makeover has extended into my house. I really, really want to clean and organize and declutter. I am the clutter queen, so I've been scouring Pinterest for ideas. The kitchen is always a sore spot for me because it's always cluttered with mail, shoes, toys, etc. I do have a fairly organized pantry, until my son decides to open the door, start throwing boxes and packages on the floor, and scream in delight. (Toddlers - what can you do?) He loves to clean and throw things away (I swear he's my child despite this), so when he does this, I am able to find year-old boxes of crap that I never threw away. Sort of a win-win. Except that one time he dumped out an entire box of rice...

Tonight is my weigh-in, and I'm excited to see my progress. Despite my heel pain, I've been doing pretty well with exercise, and my eating isn't bad at all. Last night, I fired up my Wii and played Just Dance (doing mostly the arm movements). My son thought that was fun and tried to dance with me. His imitations are very funny; he kept trying to do some head-bobbing move that the on-screen dancer was doing. Then he decided to go destroy the kitchen. (See above paragraph.) The dogs ate well when a package of crackers busted open, haha.

It's miserably hot, but I want to try to get in a bike ride tonight, assuming the storms abate. Let's hope so!

    I love cheese too! But the last few months (off dairy) I realized that I was eating it way too much. I would eat it up to three times a day, so now if have it as a special treat, once in a while. Does not always agree with my belly though!

    Cheese isn't always bad! I eat my fair share of it but have found that if I put a little on top of a recipe, I can taste it and use less than if I stir it into a recipe. Good luck! Your son sounds wonderful!

    I also love cheese, and I catch myself buying it way more than I should, but I tell myself it is healthy, your little boy sounds like a real fireball, and lots of fun,
this change of life style is very difficult for me, I have been a Sparker for over 4 years I think, and I did lose initially down to my goal, but since then I have gained most of it back, makes me crazy some days, so I know I have to fix myself a goal/reward or something that motivates me more.
I know what you mean about the heat, it has been getting to me also.
ENjoy your day.
