February Goals Update

I've kind of fallen off of the healthy eating wagon since my sister got here.  It's always harder for me during the winter anyway.  I'm really trying to get back into it this week.  I don't plan on giving up ALL the not so healthy choices I can have (I'm gluten free, so that limits several choices right there).  But I'm hoping to do better about moderation.  Yesterday was a disaster.  We had burgers and doritos last night.  I didn't portion the doritos for everyone, so we ended up eating an entire bag!  There was some finger pointing on who was to blame, but the bottom line is that bag should have lasted an entire two weeks and was all gone in ONE sitting.  From now on, I'll portion stuff into individual bags or bowls before it leaves the kitchen and everyone else will have to deal with it, whether they like it or not. :)

Financially things are in decent order.  We didn't make quite as much progress as I would like toward debt this month, but anything is better than nothing.  My husband and I had a rare kid free date night, and we took Elliott to see Journey 2, but otherwise didn't spend too much extra.  Our budget includes entertainment money that was enough to cover those things. 

Me time is much easier to find when I'm home alone (or at least the only one awake).  My sister is going to be working an evening shift a lot, so I hope I'll still be able to find some time for me.  I've done some crafting this month, as well as reading 3 books.  I've also managed to find more time to work out than I thought I would.

What a treat it must be to have your sister so close again.

I know about the portion part, sharing it out is definitely better than leaving the bag out:)

My dad was just here, and oh my the grocery cart was filled with a lot of not-so-healthy vacation snacks + I had NO time to do my regular exercises.

I need to get back on track again....

I don't know why I let myself get out of the habit of working out. I feel sooo much better when I find at least a few minutes to work out, even if it's something relatively minor (like extra trips up and down the basement stairs at a fast clip).

We are really enjoying having my sister here. Elliott told her she can't move out until he's thirty and HE is ready to move out. lol
