No matter what happened yesterday, today is always a new start. It doesn't matter if it's how you ate, how you dealt with someone the day before or how your children were behaving, each day is a day to start over.
So what if I ate all the wrong this this weekend? Today I can start the day out with my regular breakfast and I already have dinner in the crockpot of vegetarian chili. I'll go to my balcony garden for a great salad for lunch. I'm planned out for the day!
So I sat around the last couple of days? I definitely get to walk my daughter up to the school for a science class today. If my son goes to Grandma's, I'll work some more miles into my day by taking the "long way home" around the park paths.
Yesterday doesn't matter anymore, it's today that counts. Make every today count!
Bonus points for me. I got some new containers for my husband's lunches, so I packed his lunch with a great sandwich, salad, fruits, nuts and the same "parfait" I have for breakfast each day. They're called lunch blox and have great little containers with the right sizes for salad dressings and slots for the toppings for his salads so they don't mingle until just before eating (freshly tossed tastes better anyhow). It's a great way to have the right portion sizes for each item. I'll have to invest in a few more so we can be prepared a few days ahead of time. I got mine at Target for a lot cheaper than I saw on Amazon this week: www.rubbermaid.com/Categ
I know they're still plastic, but I like the separate compartments and the dressing container is just the right amount, especially if you close the container and shake it to coat. They come with their own little ice packs too! For some reason they make me want to make my husband's lunches, especially since he sliced his finger open this week...
