I just got back from the store and I'm really excited. =)
First of all, my kids did wonderfully, wonderfully well in the stores. Christian had one MAJOR meltdown, but all it took was the confiscation of his gum and he settled right down and decided to be obedient after that. ;-)
I stocked up on lots of 97% fat free chicken, frozen petite green beans, frozen corn, frozen peas, lean hamburger, nuts, spinach, carrots, celery, peanut butter, etc... I am going to have a bake-a-thon with the chicken, marinating it in a couple different spices for variety.
I also bought stuff for quick meals: lasagna, chicken enchiladas, taco bake, etc... I bought all fat free stuff as possible; cottage cheese, sour cream, cream of chicken, etc... These will come in very handy for my family during our packing and moving time.
I also decided that I am going to attempt SUNSHINE MAMA'S push up challenge she's been doing. It's something I can do on my own time, on my own floor. I may also try the C2K challenge as well. Since I have a treadmill in my own house, it would be possible. Baby steps, right?
All in all, I'm encouraged to continue on this journey. I'm determined to lose this weight, and I know that is going to take dedication and hard work. I'm going to have to make it work. Fit it into my family routine.
I think I've made a good start with my cart load of goodies... healthy goodies!
