August Resolutions

The Recap:
January - read through the bible in a year. Catching up, but still not back on track. Pluggin' away.
February - envelope system. I did pretty well last month, didn't totally stick to it. I'm terrible at this one. Seriously.
March - watch internet time. Internet time has been nursing time. Some days I feel like I could be doing something else while Lotte's nursing, like catching up on my bible reading, but other times I think, why not? It's not like I can get up...
April - walk whenever possible. I've been doing quite a bit of walking the past few weeks! yeah! keep it up!
May - stockpile the freezer. OAMC style.  N/A again! Though I did freeze a bunch of berries, and two loafs of sandwich bread. :)
June- have a healthy baby and try to stay sane- n/a :)
July - ban high fructose corn syrup from our house. easy peasy. I think I only had one recipe that I had to alter (cheesecake, see anniversary entry!) but nothing I bought had HFCS in it. Nice. I did really want a coke one day though. I will miss my occasional coke treat :)

This Month and Onward:
August- try one "deceptively delicious" type recipe a day.  Not necessarily from the book, but hiding veggies in our every day meals just to get as much nutrition in as possible.  So far, I've made black bean brownies, spinach/carrot brownies, macaroni & cheese w/ pumpkin & tomato purees, guacamole (guess the avocado's not technically hidden in there,) french toast with pumpkin & flax meal, saute'd fish with sweet potato coating, and.... maybe that's it. It's fun so far! Don't know if I can do something every day, but that's my goal.  I want Rowen to eat his veggies for what they are and will continue to offer whole veg's with every meal. This is in no means a replacement for real food & good habits.  I just think it's a good idea to get in any extra nutrition wherever we can. Wish me luck!
