|It was a slow trip, but I finally made it to a resolution!|
Be it resolved that 2016 is going to see a slimmer, trimmer me. Short-term goals are best, so I pledge to lose 15 pounds by the first of July.
I try to eat healthy. Veggies and fruit are very important, but the recommended amounts are too expensive to handle. Checking store ads to stock ahead on sale items is one way to meet the RDA.
Sometimes lightning has to strike to inspire us to wisdom. I have two grocery shopping pals that frequently ride along with me to the stores. Bargains are better when purchasing quantities. It's quick and easy to separate a shared purchase once we return to the car and each of us benefit by the price and quantity.
$1 for one orange vs $1.98 for 5 lbs of smaller oranges of good quality? Yesterday, three of us walked into our individual kitchens to put away the fresh fruit that cost each of us 34 cents less than the price of a single orange.
Once growing season starts, there will be lots of fresh fruit and vegetables to look forward to.
It's always easier to achieve a good goal when you have
to help you along the way. Encouragement and companionship provides inspiration and a reminder that it's fun to be healthy!
Are there any new resolutions on your horizon?
