Healthy Home~WK2: It's In the Can!

This week continues my new life of health and wholeness!  Changes are abounding! I celebrated my birthday, and because my hub is learning that I'm SERIOUSLY changed, he said, "you won't let us feed you (no cake, icecream or big meal) for your birthday~so, what do you want?"  Ha Ha!! Oh yes! I have wants, but food is not in that plan! I so desire a new life of activity and health! I so desire a life where food isn't central but playing a supportive role~the supportive role of body refueling and maintenance~ NOT overeating and misery!  Misery in obesity and inactivity! So what did my birthday consist of?  Well, we did have a meal, but not a hugely special one and planned to go to the movies! Oh yes, and no snacking while's just NOT worth it to me~the cost of a little bit across my lips! Praise God!

And it's so far, in the CAN~but speaking of canning, I am planning to preserve much of our garden produce this year! AND YES, it will BE ~IN THE can..CANNING JARS!  I'm collecting them up RIGHT NOW each week as I shop and putting them back for the summer fun!

My prayer is that I will give the example to my children of a new and healthy attitude toward food.  It's perhaps one of the most important things I can do for them regarding their health.  Eating is essential! What we eat is CHOICE~

You go, girl! Good for you to not slip back into bad habits just because it's your birthday!!! It's too easy to blow it on those special occasions.

Great job! I know what you mean about food and birthdays. LOL

It's so nice when food is in a supporting role and the fun is about what you're doing, not what you're eating.

Yes, we can. Grrr! The food is great, but I always find the work itself overwhelming. I suppose it's because we do mega-batches at a time. If you're just starting, don't do mega-batches!
