Before, I left for Door County, you may have noticed…I mean how could you not…that there have been a lot of sweets, baking, and treats on LWYD the last few weeks. I have come up with 3 reasons for this. Mostly, we’ve been living on leftovers..ours and our parents : )
#1) The Grill
It is still warm enough to sear meat on the back porch which means the BOY is has been in charge of dinner, which I love!
#2) The Holidays at the Parents
They sent us home with a significant amount of leftovers.
2 families + 2 holidays = Lots of Leftovers!
#3) The Crockpot
I made these 2 recipes and ever since have been living on leftovers.
So you see, although all I have been sharing with the world is the sweet stuff, we have been eating some nice healthy, well balanced meals over here. That is until this past weekend in Wisconsin where my Mom and I lived on beer and cheese. Because…let’s be honest, what is the point of going to Wisconsin if you won’t be eating beer and cheese?!
Now that I am back in town and life is calming down, I will definitely be making and sharing a lot more recipes, including tons of soup…
Continue with the Healthy Habits Recharged with focus on avoiding white flour and sugar, following hunger cues, and slowing down to chew
-Success! I have done a nice job (prior to my weekend away) of sticking to my healthy habits and it has shown on the scale.
Ride a distance PR on my bike (anything over 52 miles)
-Nope! I decided not to ride, but it was worthwhile…maybe next year!
Stay calm, chill, zen…whatever you want to call it.
-Goal Emerging!!! I am definitely getting into the Yin yoga, which has helped.
So I think since this month went so well, and I was able to get back into the healthy lifestyle that keeps me feeling my best, that I’m going to continue working towards the above goals with a few new focuses.
-Keep up the Healthy Habits with focus on drinking water, chewing, following hunger cues, and limiting processed foods
-Create half marathon training plan for November race
-Find the Zen!
