Last night was full of delicious food and lots of little noshes. I finished off work with a giant pear and an Oatmeal Raisin Quaker Chewy Bar. I then met my sweetie at the food store for the 12 hour produce sale! We got lots of goodies – bananas, onions, potatoes, apples, cantaloupe, peppers, butter, tofu, yogurts, frozen tater tots, frozen peppers, plus other munchies for under $20!! It was fabulous and now my fridge and counter are stocked with fresh veggies and fruits, and lots of healthy ingredients here and there. Love that feeling! Money Saving Tip: go online once a week and read the circulars from your local food stores, you can get some STELLAR deals for healthy items that normal might be a little pricey!

Last night I made Mac and Cheese, which I had with a huge side salad drizzled with balsamic! Mmm! I forgot to snap pictures, which I really need to be more diligent about, it’s good to see what I am putting into my body. We then went on a short, but speedy walk. I then made some homemade Salt & Vinegar Chick Peas – holy yummy! I think I will top my salad with these tonight. I felt rushed last night because we had to make it to a concert last night, so my exercise wasn’t as good as it could’ve been. And then I found myself noshing when I got home, with a big cup of camomille tea. I am heading to the gym today for a nice, long workout! And boy, am I looking forward to it. Tonight’s dinner will be a big salad, with some cheese, basalmic, chick peas, grated carrot, and who knows what other goodies I will throw in there! 🙂

This morning started out with Overnight Oats (HUGE scoop of PB, I LOVE that stuff)  like yesterday, except I got a picture before I dug in! I am so happy it’s Friday and I am enjoying my coconut coffee as well. My goal is trying to drink 2 nalgenes of water before 3:30 today (That would be 64 oz of water). I need to get more water in my system! I am working on incorporating more healthy habits into my life. I’ve read that it takes 30 days to form a habit. Here are some habits I would love to form:
1) Drink more water.
2) Eat more whole grains, less refined products.
3) Keep active (do something active every day).
4) Continue to cook more homemade.
5) Keep workouts fun!

Slowly but surely, my body has felt so much better eating the way I have and exercise. I think it’s been worth it so far! 😉
