Sliding Backwards! Why Do This Has To Happen...

Sunday, November 17, 2013

I know I got off to a great "starting over" start but over these last couple of weeks I've noticed I am slipping and sliding back to old habits. Such as not watching what I eat, even though I find buying healthy things to eat helps. It doesn't seem to help to keep the unhealthy foods that the fam. ikes lying around. I'm beginning to think I am going to have to call a family meet and demand that everyone decide to change their mindsets and then take charge! How? By deciding what each individual likes and how we can modify the old "likes" into healthier choices. One of my family members loves creamed potatoes (mashed potatoes) however, I was told a great replacement for taters is cauliflower. As a family maybe, if I pray hard enough we can make this thing work...than maybe we can coach each other? Hey, I am willing to try whatever to make this stick, this time around...and speaking of a journey....whoa! it is indeed a very interesting and challenging one...I must conquer...My fam must conquer!!! Lord help us all...

P.S., And the holidays are upon us...I forgot that!...Love all my SP Friends, what would I do without them!

    Some days are challenging. It's especially tough when those closest to you are not willing to get on board with the plan. My wife basically took control of the pantry about eight years ago, and that has made all the difference for us. Blessings.

    It can be challenging. I couldn't get dh to buy into mashed cauliflower or spaghetti squash spaghetti. I like both. ,thinking of mixing the real and the replacements to see what happens.

    I have made the mashed cauliflower and really like it but then, I love cauliflower. Making it a family healthy eating habits really help keeping the junk out of the house. And learning and teaching your children healthy eating habits will hopefully prevent them from falling into the traps we did.
