Fairy Tale Mom

The thing about rarely cooking dinner that I love is the part where I don’t have to do it. Mostly, NBF makes dinner and cleans up after. (Good gig if you can get it.)

He is an excellent cook. We eat at home 90% of the time and its awesome. But, it’s also adding numbers to the size of my pants. Worse yet, it’s impacting the princess too.

Again, excellent cook. But, he’s not a fan of anything low in fat or calories. We eat late due to work and after school activities. Scheduling is my enemy. He doesn’t see an 8:30 dinner time as a problem. I do. I’ve read everything I can read about meal time and nutrition, but I can’t seem to get everyone on the same plan.

The changes we need to make for the health of my girl are going to be a battle. I’m considering utilizing the local YMCA nutritionist to help.

If you have any experience at all with your local Y, let me know. I’m grasping at straws here.

The Friendaversary has been celebrated – properly I might add. @justheather has introduced me to so many new things, like blogging. And, she’s been a great motivator during the healthy living project. While she applied to be a Mamavation Mom, I decided that the best way to support her was to join her on the journey.

So, I’ve been drinking tons of water. In fact, Diet Coke just doesn’t sound good anymore – and I used to drink LOTS of Diet Coke. The salads every day have really made a difference in my health – I’ll spare you the details on that one. And, I’m learning new ways to eat some of my healthier favorites. I’ve always been a veggie eater, I just didn’t eat enough of them. So, this week we are working on portiion control… that’s a big challenge for me.

And, now the GOOD NEWS –

I’m wearing smaller pants!!! ┬áThat’t right. I’m down a size!

I still haven’t stepped on the scale, but I promise that I can see a difference!
