Why am I here?

Since this is my first post for our new healthy lifestyle blog,  I thought it would be nice to give you a little insight into why I’ve joined E.P. and Lily in this “live a healthier lifestyle” extravaganza!

I suffer from “I need it immediately”itis….Meaning,  if I’m hungry,  I want to eat now rather than later.  Typically this leads me to bring home take out rather than prepare a meal at home.  Now,  I know that it would probably take me less time to actually make my dinner rather than drive all the way to the restaurant and pick it up,  but it just seems like so much less work!

Yes I’ll probably still get take out a night or two a week,  but I pledge to eat at home more often,  allowing myself to regulate what goes into my body better.  I’ve even started out on the right foot.  Over the weekend I made some applesauce oatmeal muffins from a recipe I found on sparkpeople.com and let me tell you,  they are pretty good.

So, my ultimate goal is to eat better and get a little bit of exercise in.  Alright, a lot of exercise in.  Yeah,  I know… a LOT of people say the exact same thing EVERY new year!  And I’m not going to pretend that I’ll have no set backs.  I’m a busy girl after all…50 hour work week and  full time grad school keeps me pretty busy!  But all the missed sleep and TV time is worth it right?  RIGHT?  Definately!

    I know how it goes with the ‘I need it immediatelys.’ That happens to me, too.

    I’m happy we’re all doing this together!

    Oh my god, those muffins were the first thing I made too! I made mini-muffins and they freeze really nicely for bite-sized snacking that lasts weeks!
