Day 5

Day 5 of 30 day shred. Day 5 of Mama Notes' Fit By Labor Day Challenge. Day 5 of All You Grocery Challenge. I'd have to say I'm doing well! The workout is getting easier, except cardio--I still get so easily winded. I will try level 2 next week. I notice that it is easier by the end of each session. Maybe my body isn't warmed up or loose enough yet when I start. Not sure if it will actually help since alot of days I've had to split up the 20 minutes to accomodate Little One. Fit by Labor Day Challenge is good for me...I am working out, which was a problem for me before. I am making better food choices..both type of food and how I prepare them. The first 4 days I wasn't hungry or snacky and probably didn't get enough calories. Today I noticed I was really hungry, and I ate! I refuse to deny my body food when I am breastfeeding! I didn't have anything sugary or fatty, so I don't feel bad about it. Grocery Challenge..love it! I am still using alot of food we already have on hand, and did pick up a few items for cheap or free. And, apparently I was very ambitious today--I made homemade bread(3 loaves, for the freezer)and homemade cottage cheese. I had a lovely snack of cottage cheese and fresh strawberries--yum! I need to buy some more veggies and salad fixings(in order to keep eating healthy)...which I could find someone around here that would trade fresh bread for fresh produce..hmm..Farmer's Market?

You're on a roll, mama! I need to do Couponsense and plan my meals/salads for the week. You inspire me!

Holly,
it started Monday last..http://allyougrocerychallenge.wordpress.com/
Basically you can only spend 25/person/week on grocery inluding dining out. But, you can barter, you can coupon, and you can use what you already have stockpiled...it's fun to do even without the challenge!
