Spring Cleaning: Body Clutter

It is that time of year when we welcome the happy signs of springtime life.  Along with freshening up our houses I always find motivation to loose those extra pounds that I always seem to gain between Halloween and New Years.

Yes, I realize that this year I am gaining weight very quickly (I am pregnant) but I know that eating healthy now will help me to feel good and have a better recovery after pregnancy.  

I wanted to get a visual picture of what  I eat so I have been taking pictures of each meal with the ipad.

I know it is a little silly to take a picture of what you eat, but it has helped me to be more aware of what  I am eating.  I also take time to put everything on my plate and then sit down to eat instead of just snacking while I prepare the kid's meals.  

Breakfast
 orange, cheerios, skim milk, almonds, dried cranberries
 oatmeal, pecans, natural applesause, skim milk

 cottage cheese, natural applesauce, applesauce muffin
 orange, granola, banana, almonds
 pecans, greek yogurt, skim milk, fresh rasberries
 apple, greek yogurt, pecans, flax seed
12 grain bread, scrambled egg, grapefruit


Lunch
