Chickin Feed

I thought this was a great idea for getting your kids involved in paying attention to their own nutrition! It's called Chickin Feed nutrition tracking and created by a mom in Atlanta just trying to involve her kids in keeping track of what they ate for the day. Hopefully it makes it feel like a game for kids to make sure they're getting in healthy foods into their diet. Since I don't have kids, I have no idea if it's effective or not, but I would love to know if anyone does this type of tracking with their kid's food intake and whether or not it works.

"'s got to be good!"

I love me some Smucker's Sugar Free Breakfast syrup! I eat it every morning with my Multigrain Cereal and a Fuji apple. Sometimes I eat it for dinner too! It would be good over regular oatmeal with a dash of cinnamon, or a whole-grain waffle. It's also yummy poured over cut up banana barely heated in the microwave and topped with a little fat-free cool whip... I know, sounds crazy, but delish.

One of my fave web sites

I picked up this magazine, Women's Health, a couple of times and subsequently started visiting their web site. Now I find myself returning to it more and more. Much of what is in the magazine is on the web site and I just love their tag line ~ "It's good to be you". It IS good to be you :) check it out.

Congratulations David!!!

My baby is a stud! He made his sales goals for 2007 and as a reward, his company takes everyone who makes their goal plus a guest on a trip each February, whoo hoo! We're going to Cabo San Lucas and I am so excited! :) I'm so proud of my man, he worked his booty off to make it and he deserves the reward. Wheeeeee!!

Back to business

I can't believe it's 2008, but now that the bustle of the holidays is over it's back to business and setting new goals for the year. David and I are moved in together and it is a very exciting time for both of us, and I'm trying to stay cheery about the unpacking process :) I never realize how much stuff I have until I have to move it! I've moved quite a bit over the years, but it's nice to know that now I am settling in with someone that I love and now I get to share my life with my best friend.

One of my goals for this year is to make this blog a place for positive information and inspiration, especially from a health perspective. I want to help people feel vibrant, not just to be thin. There are a lot of risks that come with obesity and now is the time to get into the specifics of being healthy. I hope I can do my part to help with that.

I'm going to start by expanding on the issues that I put in the poll at the end of last year. Hopefully that will be a helpful start to kick off the new year. I hope everyone is preparing for a positive and joyous new year!
