gentle reminder update

This is usually the part of January when resolutions start to fall by the wayside.  Did you make resolutions?  How are you doing with them?

Personally, I think reminders are so much easier to work with.  I have been doing pretty well getting some walks in, and replacing my salty snacks with fruit.  The flossing reminder hasn't been going as well, but I will get there.  I have been trying out some new healthier recipes, last night we had a Salmon Corn Chowder that I made with the leftover giant hunk of salmon I cooked up for dinner the night before.  We have been eating more salads, and Charlie has asked for extra veggies or fruit in his lunchbox rather than a sweet ending.  Tonight I am trying a new chicken recipe, if we like it I will feature it next week in Recipe Box Wednesday.

I just think it is easier to change habits when you do it slowly, and easily, and incorporate them into everyday life.  And realize that it is okay to still have a treat now and then.

And did we have a treat last night!  I LOVE to bake, but I know we don't need those extra calories, so I don't do it very often.  But this link popped up in my inbox this week, and last night I just couldn't resist.

And yes, it was worth every single calorie.
