Wellness Challenge Day 3 - Keep a Health Journal

Jot It Down

I used to be an excellent journalist, but those days have long since past.  I’ve often had the thought to write memoirs based on the countless journals that are sitting in a box in my garage, but the thought of combing through thousands of entries bewilders me.

And so, as I read this challenge, I am faced again with the fact that I know too well:  if i don’t write something down, I will not be able to recall it a year, a month or even a day down the road.  I’m also faced with the truth that I loath journaling for the sheer fact that I just don’t have the time to do it as I would like.

Throw it out!!! Okay, so here we go!

Fire Up The Grill! When this time of the years rolls around, it is rare that you will find me or my family inside.  We practically move the entire contents of our house outdoors.  Heck, I even take my naps outside!  I LOVE THE SPRING!!! This also means we are eating and cooking outside as […]

Paleo Meal Plan #13

Simple Yet Flavorful! Honestly, I don’t have much to say about this one other than there are some super easy and very tasty meals and sides with this plan!  Most of the dinners are as easy as tossing vegetable with some oil and seasonings and throwing them in the oven.

Blame The Bug! I know it has been awhile since I last posted a meal plan (6 weeks, to be exact), and all I can say is that it all started with a bug – a stomach bug that went through our entire family (minus Hubby, of course) and all at the same time!  It […]

Nourished Paleo Meal Plan #9

Shopping Tip:  Pay with Cash! This is something that my husband and I have been doing for awhile now, and it really helps to cut back on unintentional spending. Every Monday, I pull out my allotted cash for the week (to include groceries, miscellaneous, & a personal treat) and once it’s gone, it’s gone.  So, when […]
