Well, I don't have good news to report this week. I gained one pound. I'm not surprised at all, so I'm not to upset about it. We had a lot of running around last week and we ate out for a few meals. What we did eat at home, wasn't very healthy...it was just quick and easy. It shows how unprepared I am for interruptions in my schedule. I am fixing that right now!
We bought a small deep freezer and I'm going to have it stocked with frozen vegetables and turkey burgers that can be cooked easily from frozen. This will also give me room in my regular freezer for my frozen onions, celery, broth, and other things that I need for cooking healthy meals from scratch. I'm so excited and thankful that we were able to get the small freezer. We got a great deal on it too, only $154 for a 5 cf GE freezer. One year warranty. I'll have to get a picture up on here for you of the new microwave we bought with the freezer. It's just beautiful! For the first time ever, I have all matching appliances, and they are all stainless steel! God is so good to us. He blesses us so much more than we could ever deserve! Now, I just need to use these material blessings to help myself and my family to eat much healthier this year!
I hope to have better news to report next week. It's amazing the impact on our bodies that food makes. I felt slow and sluggish all week. I couldn't think as clearly and my stomach wasn't feeling so great some of those days. Within just one day of eating healthy again, I feel better...I woke up ready to start the day, I'm thinking more clearly and my body almost feels like itself again. It is truly nice to know and be able to feel the difference that good food makes for the body! All the more motivation to make sure I put it in my mouth, instead of junk!
