- Occassionally watching The Biggest Loser.
- Reading my friend Amy's blog dedicated to Super Healthy Eating for Families. Every day I read it I think "Really? Well, that's cool." Then I store the information away in my brain where it remains untouched.
- Getting off the sodas.
It's a start. But kind of a pathetic start. So, I've decided I've got to put some effort into it. Heeding Amy's teachings I have started to focus on feeding the Mags fruits and vegetables. It's working so far. She and I have been eating and snacking more on celery, pears, bananas, oranges, and the like. This evening I even made a smoothie out of frozen raspberries, peaches, and a splash of milk. It really wasn't sweet enough (see, I have a sweet tooth. I come by it honestly--my maternal grandmother adds sugar to everything. Even steamed vegetables. And Jell-o). So I added a little shake of a Raspberry Lemonade Crystal Light flavor packet.
When I tasted it and saw that it was good, I decided to take a leap in the healthy direction and I throw in a handful of spinach. (Thanks to a link I got from Emily the other day I was informed that green smoothies are all the rage).
The spinachy smoothie tasted like a Christmas Tree. "Do you eat Christmas trees, Megan?" you ask. The answer is no, I don't. But if I did they would taste like my green smoothie. You know what, though? It tasted good. The flavor really grew on me.
Maybe now I'll try to wean myself off the Crystal Light. I'm no nutritionist, but I figure if sugar isn't so healthy for you, a bunch of chemicals that replace sugar can't be so great for you either.
But what do I know?
Now, here's the part where you comment and tell me a healthy habit you have, want to have, or think I should adopt. I still have 20 pounds to go (10 pounds baby weight, 10 pounds chunk). But more importantly, I want to feel healthy.
