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 http://www.confessionsofacookbookqueen.com/2012/01/toasted-marshmallow-hot-fudge-cake/ popped up in my inbox this week, and last night I just couldn't resist.
And yes, it was worth every single calorie.
