This is the 3rd week of Bloggers for Health! I missed last week due to . . . well, just the busyness of life. Today, however, the Hubs is out of town, so while the Little Miss is napping, Little Guy & I are watching The Sword and The Stone. And I'm blogging a bit. =)
Since starting Bloggers for Health a few weeks ago, I've noticed I'm making wiser choices each day in what I eat. I'm not sticking to my five steps exactly, but I am eating more salads and fruit. I haven't been running like I wanted to, thanks to the frigid weather Florida has been having, so I need to rethink my workout plan... But I am definitely feeling much better, simply because of my healthier choices!
Now, I'd like to share a healthy and easy salad that I like to eat at work!
Mix together salad greens, 1/2 can of tuna, sliced strawberries, chopped pecans and light Italian dressing.
Voila!! You have yourself an absolutely delicious and healthy lunch!

100 Day Stretch
Well, my shopping ban is going strong! I'm actually quite surprised at how well it has gone. I've picked up one or two little things from Target that were on sale and I put them in my Christmas closet, so I don't consider that "cheating." I also bought myself two things from the thrift store recently that were about a dollar a piece, so that was cheating that was well worth it! =) Basically, the shopping ban has simply helped me to curb my spending and to not be so reliant upon impulse shopping to help with my stress. It's nice to know that I don't have to run to the store for a shopping spree every time I'm stressed out!

I absolutely love this time of year, from the first days of fall until New Years Day, everything seems to be so festive! The cold air doesn't really feel dreary until about mid-January; it simply feels Christmassy! =) One of my favorite things about this time of year is that almost everyone you come across is feeling cheery and thankful. Today, I'm thankful for days when the Hubs is out of town. Although I rely on him a lot (really, a lot!), when he's out of town, the kidlets and I bond in a way that we don't get to when he's here. It's just me and then against the world! lol Well, sometimes it's me against them, but you know how that goes. =)
And also, on a very superficial note... I'm thankful for these boots. They're becoming my best friend during this little cold spell we're having!
Sweater: Old Navy (Soooo old, $6)
Jeans: Eddie Bauer ($10-ish, I think)
Boots: Shoedazzle (Gift)
Ring: Glow Salon ($5)
Here I am, just bashfully admiring my boots. ;)
Tank, necklace & bracelet: Borrowed from my SisLast but not least, I'd like offer a belated congratulations to Grace at Camp Patton on the birth of her perfect little son, Sebastian Xavier! Grace writes hysterically funny stories about motherhood and shares some adorable outfits, as well. I don't know how she manages to look so cute, with a newborn baby! So, if you're pregnant or a mom or just a girl who likes to read blogs, go check her out. I'm sure you'll like her as much as I do! =)
