Getting those fruits and vegetables

Getting five servings of fruits and vegetables was our biggest obstacle to healthy eating. We found that by always having a fruit with breakfast (1/2 a banana or 1/2 cup blueberries) and a fruit with lunch (an apple or an orange) and then always cook at least three vegetables with dinner.

Finish each day......

Finish each day and be done with it. you have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense-emerson

Add some color to your diet

When planning your meals, think about color and variety! A plate with some bright green steamed asparagus beside some beautiful yellow squash and bright red sweet strawberries makes meals fun and lots more enjoyable! The kids love it too.

Remember: logging everything your eat is the first major step in realizing your habits. Not being honest in your log does not mean your body isn't going to metabolize the food, so you might as well put it into your log!

Get up from that desk

I often spend hours sitting behind a desk. I will set my phone to chime every hour and remind me to get up and stretch, move and even do a few jumping jacks. I find that at the end of the day, if I will get up and move at least once every hour I don't feel near as "worn out" at the end of the day
