I caught the cheese smile!! With a side of drool, of course.

Lucy 184/365

Today I am thankful for the fact that Justin, me, and our neighbors (Steve and Christy) all started a plan to eat healthier on July 1st. We are all doing great and I can already feel a difference in how I feel. We had gotten so lazy with our eating and we were eating junk and fatty, yucky food WAY too much. I have had no energy or motivation lately, and I think the way I have been treating my body has made the problem much, much worse. So no more fast food, sweets, etc for a while as I detox my body a bit. I had egg whites and whole wheat toast for breakfast, a big salad for lunch, and a garden burger for dinner. I am full, but don't feel gross because I have stuffed myself. Now, if I could just get myself motivated to work out...... Someday.

Have a great weekend!





So stinkin cute.




A very typical Annie face!

Aahhhh the irony of this post as I lay in bed having just completely socked it to myself. I just ordered chips, queso, guacamole, a margarita and peach cobbler with ice my dinner. I'm so full I am MISERABLE right now. I don't even think I can even help finish the parade decorations for tomorrow. Pathetic. Utterly pathetic.

Happy 4th!!

Hi pumpkins! Looks like we had a good day. Sorry it has decided to get so hot again. Working it's way up here, too! Not much happening, got the house clean, ran my errands. Am watering the grass as we speak because it has gotten so dry and burned up looking. ugh I think it's so much better to eat in a healthy way when you have encouragement. They've got our work out center finished, so guess someone's thighs should waddle on over there and put the pedal to the metal!! Get some rest! Love and kisses, Lee Lee

Didn't Liz's supper sound good?????!!!!!!

Mom said...

Oh yow, great pics of those girls! Lee

Absolutely precious pictures! I have got to do something about eating so much junk. We have gotten lazy this summer about eating too many fatty snacks and I am tired all of the time. You have inspired me.
Happy 4th of July! Also, I added you to my blogroll on my new blog.
Hope you don't mind.

I think these are my absolute favorite photos of Lucy. That red really suits her well and she looks like such a little woman in these photos!

ok, you HAVE to read animal, vegetable, miracle. i am sure you have heard of it. i have been wanting to read it for awhile.
i have been awful with my eating lately too. AWFUL. i grew a second ass while in PA, i swear. but i am on page 40 of this book and can already tell it is going to change my life.
i just bought an entire weeks of groceries all local. feeling so motivated to eat local/healthier.
