Change of eating habit

How many of you have that desire after having children, to lose that baby fat? I have, after my two.....sadly, for whatever lazy reason, I've added weight back on after Ashleigh turned one. She's now 21 mons., and um, well, yeah.

So! I've tried one week of changing what I was eating, drinking, etc., trying to cut back, ESPECIALLY on my sweet tea intake, and after that week, my girls were sick, things got busy again, and I wimped out.
BUT! After hearing someone tell me they lost 10 lbs. in two weeks, I got inspired to GET at it again.
So today was my first day back at it. I'm not dieting, per se. I'm having a 'change of eating habit'. Why is it we feel like we have really accomplished something by eating better foods, resisting the junk food, etc. Shouldn't this be an easier way of life than to feel like we trumped somebody in a card game?

Here's what I'm doing:
~drinking more water, to flush those toxins out
~eating more raw veggies, fruit, etc. (the good stuff you know you should eat more of)
~cutting back on the portions on my plate
~walking at the church next door

Here's to losing weight and taking better care of my 'temple'!
Who's with me?

Now that I'm back on here......

I can see myself wanting to post more often! =]
Maybe this will be my outlet, my journaling, since it doesn't happen on paper anymore.

My agenda for the day includes, but not limited to:
~dishes (How can 3 drainer loads full come from JUST Sunday and this morning? I washed up late Sat. night!)
~straightening up our bedroom
~cleaning the bathroom
~cleaning up the girls' room
~cleaning up the office
~de-cluttering the DR table, and the bay window

This week's agenda, for whatever day it falls on:
~laundry two or three days
~fixing some dresses so I can wear them
~sewing Kaylie's church purse's strap back on, whenever I find the purse itself.
~cleaning out the van (again)
~working on the new money program we loaded on this computer, so I can update our info before tax time! I have 11 mons. worth of categorizing to do.......anyone want to babysit for me?
~get the girls' picture taken, and maybe a family picture, too, to get sent out by Thanksgiving time, hopefully.
~work on a letter to send out with that picture....
~think about banking options. To open/or not to open savings accounts for the girls?

That's enough to think on right now.

What's on YOUR Monday agenda and projects for this week?

Go with God.........

The kitchen's cleaned up for the night, the girls are bathed and in bed, the hubby's studying, the chicken's thawing.......after catching up on here, it's time to have MY quiet time.

Honor the Lord's Day tomorrow!
