Healthy Shopping

Well I normally wouldn't shop this early, but with this bet my hubby and I have going on I needed to get some good healthy snacks in the house.  Also with all the exercise we really needed some snacks that would give high energy.  So I went out and grabbed some snacks along with some items I will need for next month.  Also I will be doing my bulk monthly shopping a week early because I have a 10% off my entire order which will come in real handy :)  So keep an eye out to see all the great stuff that I find tomorrow!

I am super excited with all the great healthy snacks we bought today.  I am hoping these will last a while, but I know I will need to do weekly produce runs from now on.  Which is fine and if I go over budget that is fine too.  I guess my goals have changed a little and my focus is more on our health than saving money.  Funny how we grow and change through time isn't it?

I also want to say how well we are doing with this new lifestyle.  I am proud to say I have been Diet Pepsi free for a week now (even with a 12-pack in the fridge and one in the cupboard!).  I have also been doing some sort of active activity for 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the evening everyday.  With the new healthy eating (I eat 6 small meals a day jam packed with whole foods), increased activity, and the elimination of Diet Pepsi I have lost 4.6 lbs!  I know it's not much, but it is a great start and I am excited to move forward with this new lifestyle!
