Mamavation Monday

My daughter totally bailed on me!  She ran with me last Monday and then went to stay with her grandmother for the rest of the week.  Seriously, what a way to avoid exercise.  This mean I’m on my own again…

My eating habits were o.k., not great but not bad.  I had planned to work my way through the Live Longer Cookbook but I’m going to have to start next week.  Due to circumstances beyond my control, I wasn’t able to start my healthy cooking last week.  However, I have encouraged my remaining family to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.  With 5 out of 7 meals I make sure that we have salad, which everyone loves.  I’ve also started baking *healthier* sweets for the family ~ bread/rice pudding with tons of fruits like apples, apricots, cranberries, mango, plums and raisins.  In fact, the kids love the bread pudding so much that she’s requested it for her birthday instead of traditional cake.  For the record, the recipe is from the Live Longer Cookbook

I’m trying to get more water down.  I really don’t have a valid excuse considering my refrigerator has an ice and water maker.  For whatever reason, when I have bottled water I don’t have a problem but as soon as those bottles are gone so is my taste for water.  Yes, I am crazy.

My healthy commitments for this week are to work out for a minimum of 3 out of 7 days and to cook healthier meals.
