update for this week

The goal I wanted to work on was eating breakfast with a great protein source.
Monday started out great almond butter and natural jam on wholewheat toast.
Then Tues I woke up with a migraine headache and didnt really want food or anything!
Wed., Thurs, Fri well suffice to say it just didnt happen.
I was just talking to my daughter about goals and setting them to try and achieve them. I think some goals take time and for me this might be one of them. I have a really hard time eating first thing when I wake up!!!!!!
I will keep trying but as I told her at least I ate breakfast for one more morning then I did the week prior. I will keep trying .
THanks Becca for the great ideas on how to add protein I will check them out!!!!!!!!
Sticking with this goal this week so hopefully I can do better!!!!!!!!!!

first goal I am setting for 2010

I went for some testing with the doctor and they said I am low on Vitamin b and iron. After I did some research I was not surprised at all to find this out. I am not a big meat eater and I am lactose intolerant too.

I am going to try and add more protein to my diet by eating breakfast with a protein source. So I have picked out a few to start with . Tomorrow will be my first day of eating a breakfast. The two I am starting with are eggs or an almond butter and jam on whole wheat toast. I also am going to be eating almonds for a protein source as a snack each day.

If you have any good ideas for breakfast that have a protein source please let me know. Also if you know any good protein sources I might be able to try again please email me or leave a comment.

Lets see how that goes tomorrow!!!!!!!!!! I will let you know!!!!!!!!!!!

happy new year!!!!!!!!!

First off I want to wish all my friends and family a happy new year!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A couple of years ago I decided that I will not ever make resolutions
again . For me it is so easy to just break those resolutions and
to get easily frustrated very early on . So for me I just continue with what
I am doing that is working for me and my family to have a happy life. I am always working towards something but it changes from time to time.

This year I am just going to continue on with what is working for me in my life.
There are a few things I want to change and over the year but not all at once just one at a time. I will be posting about them when I decide to concentrate on each goal.

An example is in Sept this past year I decided that we needed to spend more time
as a family. The memories that my daughter will remember are the times spent together
not the things we buy!!!!!!! So I concentrated on that and I love the new family time we have found to spend together.

Last night we passed up two parties that we were invited to spend time as a family. We went to a family swim together and then came home and had chinese food. My 11 year old daughter asked to stay up till midnight so I thought we would try it . She managed to stay awake and probably could have stayed up even later than that but she went to bed a little after midnight.

We rang in midnight the perfect way with her sitting between my husband and I.
We counted down midnight together and then we kissed her at midnight and then kissed each other . It was perfect!!!!!!!!!! It felt so right and I want to have more experiences like that !!!!!!!!!!

So come back to the blog to read what I am working on next.

Take some time to hug your child!!!!!!!!!
