Well, for the past couple days I’ve been having a hard time avoiding eating bad snacks and it hasn’t been going so well. However, I got some wonderful advice from Nancy (thank you!) in one of my comments about having snacks that would be good for me. I admit I am someone who enjoys having something to snack on and going cold-turkey isn’t working out for me.
So, I went to the grocery store and bought some healthy snacks to have around the house which will help out tremendously. I bought baby carrots, celery, raisins, strawberries & some cucumbers that I will cut up and put in some Tupperware. I hope this will help with the cravings that I am constantly having.
So, I won $24 on Wednesdays Powerball ticket. I know it’s not a big deal to most people, but I don’t usually win much if anything at all when I play PB, so it kinda makes me happy to get a small win like this.
My mom, youngest sister and I have vowed off sweets. We all decided that we are going to help each other eat better and we are going to quit buying cookies and other crap. My mom mentioned how she hasn’t been feeling good lately and I feel the same way. I think we both agree that we are just eating too much junk food. We are also going to cut out eating fast food. My youngest sister also wants to join in, Although, she’s in shape already, but she wants to eat better, so that will be good for her also.
So with that, I will be starting my exercising program tomorrow. You may be seeing a lot of posts dealing with my exercise/diet regime, but I will try not to go overboard with it.
In other news the bottom element in our oven broke so now we have to go to Lowe’s or Home Depot and buy another one. They are about 30 bucks so they don’t cost too much. But really, who wants to spend extra money on an oven piece.
