One thing that has always been on my list of things to accomplish is to run a 5k. That’s right, to jog the entire 3.2 miles without stopping. I am aiming low. I don’t want to win a prize or beat everyone. I just want to finish the race. If you’ve been reading my blog, you might know that getting healthy is on of my New Years resolutions. I am doing pretty well since I’ve gotten down to my pre-baby weight, which is roughly a 40 pound loss. I have been eating healthy (for the most part) and I felt it’s time to add more exercise to my daily routine.
When I was pregnant with my daughter, my husband and I ate take-out probably 4 times a week. I was tired and nauseated all the time. I really couldn’t have cared less about what I made for dinner. This was one of my biggest mistakes and a complete money-waster. The first thing I did when we started saving more money was create a meal planning chart. It saved me time since I wasn’t pressed to figure out a meal that day and still wonder if I actually had time to make it. It saved money since I used the stuff I already bought and it saved our waistlines since I was trying out new recipes that focused on healthy foods.
