Hello all! My kids have been on Spring break the last few days and my free time really took a nose dive. We have been cleaning out closets and reorganizing some of the house. The Spring break weather has been nice for the most part. Saturday it was 80° and beautiful Monday morning we woke up to snow.
Last month I started using a weight loss app to track my food consumption and I’m learning that carbs and sodium are my downfall. Apparently eating pizza three times a week isn’t healthy! I managed to loose 6.8 lbs in the first month by cutting back on coffee creamer, Coca Cola, candy, pizza, cheese, and carbs in general. I switched to whole grain pasta and I’ve been trying out my new bread machine. The goal is to make a low sodium healthy multi grain bread that tastes good too. I’ll share a recipe once I get one that everyone really likes.
Last night I finished knitting these socks for my Son’s Christmas gift. Now I have three out of 20 people on my list covered. I’m thinking that I might set my July goals as Christmas in July just to knock out the rest of them.
