Motivation Monday

I'm linking up for my first Motivation Monday.  Hopefully, this will keep me motivated and accountable.  I have known for some time, that we need to change our eating habits.  We eat out entirely too much - especially fast food.  It was just the easy way to go.  My husband and I both work full time and when we get home, the last thing we want to do is cook.  We also don't meal plan so when we get home we stare at the fridge or cabinets because we have no idea what to cook.

Last week at the beach, my husband made the comment that both kids (age 9 and 11) have a belly now.  My kids are in all kinds of activities so the only thing I can figure is the poor eating habits.  We drink a lot of sweet tea.  I drink a lot of Diet Pepsi.  We eat a lot of French fries.  Our eating habits are kicking our butts!  I am always tired.  ALWAYS!  Here is my plan for this week:

1.  To eat at home as much as possible.  I wrote down a couple of meals, but if worse comes to worse, a PB & J sandwich would be better than McDonalds.

2.  To consume more water.  My daughter does whatever I do.  So if I drink water = then she will.

3.  Buy veggies and fruit for snacks and no chips or cookies.

4.  To get my kids in the kitchen helping prepare the meals.  Hopefully, this will make them want to try it, if they help make it.

5.  To get both kids a doctor's appointment for their yearly physical.  Both are healthy so we normally only see the doctor once or twice a year.

I am trying to start small so that I can actually accomplish this goal of healthy eating.  I hope I have good news next week when I link up.  I have learned so much from Wendy at  She is truly an inspiration to me.

You can do it, girl! I believe in you! Once you start making small, healthy changes... the rest will come so easy! Trust me, I've done it! We crave what we eat! The more healthy foods you consume, that's what your brain will crave! And you are so right, drinking water is KEY! (& it's free!)

Y'all are gonna see a difference! And you'll feel better, too!
