Mundane Monday.......

Monday, February 16, 2009

It's Monday...another day to be thankful to be alive (which I MOST DEFINITELY am)...and another day to be thankful that I have a job (which I am)...but also another day of me feeling BLAH (which I am) and Monday's just don't get along for some reason...guess I have weekend withdrawal or something!!! emoticon

I listed my weekly goals on yesterday's blog but I will edit two of them here..
*** 5 days of exercise (3 days cardio/2 days strength training)
*** Increase veggie/fruit intake...will aim for 3 servings a day to start..

I have to find ways to get my fruit/veggies in on a daily basis...I do not eat salads like that (they are boring) and while I do cook, making pastas/soups and slipping veggies in there won't work for me. I live alone and having tons of leftovers isn't appealing and I know I can freeze the rest but I probably wouldn't go back to it any suggestions on this would be appreciated!! emoticon emoticon

Also, I have noted that many of my Sparkfriends from the past have fallen off..I hope they are just busy but it has been many months since some of them have posted on of my Sparkteams is pretty much non-existant so I decided to become the "co-leader" of the group...please check us out and join!! I want to keep it going if possible but I can't do it alone!!!!

It's the "30 Days Till.." team...the 30 days can be anything you want to accomplish in a month whether it's cleaning out your closet or loosing weight...I know you all have multiple teams that you are part of so if you don't mind another one, then please come on over!!

Here is the link..

That's it for now...have a great day everyone!

    Love your blog and page. I love Dallas, I have family in North Dallas. I am in the New England area. Girl, do your thang..I am straight up doing mine. I find that soup is the best way to slip in veggies and fiber (via beans). Sandwiches are also great for slipping in fiber from lettuces, sprouts, tabhini, Bab Gnoush, roasted veggies. I cook for a family, but I have learned to use the Whole Foods salad bar to get pre chopped veggies so things won't go to waste.

    Have a great one!

    Just a small suggestion on a way to include more veggies/fruit in your diet. I never had a problem with eating vegetable, however fruit has been my biggest gripe. I just recently discovered that I love roasted vegetables. They are so easy to make and taste good. All you do is take any veggie you like, cut them up, shake a little olive oil, lemon pepper and garlic powder (not salt), put them on a baking sheet and roast at 450 degrees for 15 mins. Try broccoli, red peppers, aspargus. Califlower is not my favorite roasted and it takes longer than 15 mins to roast. Also try the microwave steam bags you can buy in the store. As for fruit, I buy the Dole fruit cups in light syrup or make fruit smoothies in the blender for my kids. That works for me. I eat some fresh fruit, but I switch it up to make it more interesting. I also drink V8 Splash or Juicy Juice (it's not just for kids!) Good luck, hopefully some of these ideas will work for you also. emoticon

    Love the fact that you make plans!!! You are on the right track. As Oprah says: "Hope is not a plan."
