One of my resolutions for this year was to start writing on my blog again. I miss sharing the things I'm doing in my kitchen and sharing about things I'm learning concerning health & nutrition. And yes, I miss sharing about my kids.
Last time I wrote I was pregnant with my 2nd child- she is now 10 months old! Wow! She's growing so fast! She's started mimicking me by pretending to hold a phone and say, "allo?" and she tried combing her hair this morning after watching me comb her sisters hair.
Another thing I started doing this year was tracking my eating. I was never paying enough attention to my calorie intake and I never paid any attention whatsoever to my protein intake. Until recently, I didn't realize how important protein was in keeping me full, building muscle and burning calories. I've started writing down on a chart everything I was eating and drinking. Yesterday I was over my calories for the day- although i didn't think I had eaten that much. But my cup of chocolate milk, a can of pop and a cookie all added up. Today I am being much more careful about what I am eating!
This evening I will be eating at my church for supper. Every Wednesday they serve supper for only $4 before the Bible studies and kids church starts. We've only been taking advantage of it since the New Year and are enjoying meeting new people and eating great food that I didn't cook! I will have to try and figure out though how to calculate the calories. :)
Well that's it for today. But I'm looking forward to writing much more regularly now!
Have a great day!
