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.
