Also not new...going to start tomorrow. But, there it is in writing....Feb.4,2011. I am also starting Beth Moore's bible study, breaking free tomorrow at church. So excited. Really, I am. And Brooke started a blog about being healthy and I will post how I am doing here and follow her blog as well. Very exciting. Kids are back at school after 2 days off for snow. I'm working at the Toledo building this weekend, nervous already. Praying for peace for this crazy world.

ok, so its not January 1, 2010 anymore. But I am starting my 60 day challenge that I wanted to start last month. I'm posting everything I do and don't do to make myself accountable to the blogging world. I have had absolutly NO motivation to do anything but overeat. I've had a sprained shoulder and so haven't been exercising and have just been eating everything I can get my chubby hands on. So, my tomorrow has come, FEB.6th, 2010. now, someone please hold be accountable if I start over tomorrow,...again..
Here are my 7 goals for the next two months:
1. READ BIBLE ALONE AND WITH KIDS~30 MINUTES
2.VITAMIN FOLLOWED BY 64 OUNCES WATER
3.EXERCISE 30 MINUTES
4.NO FAST FOOD OR JUNK FOOD~FIVE FRUITS/VEGGIES EACH DAY
5.CLEAN HOUSE FOR 1 HOUR DAILY~FOLLOW CLEANING SCHEDULE
6.NOTHING ON CREDIT CARD
7.CONSISTENT DISCIPLINE OF KIDS
We'll see how I do tomorrow. by God's grace and strength alone.

ok, what? its only Jan. 25th, 2010 and I already wish this year could either be done or start completly over. Is that too much to ask? Friends with big problems, family with health problems, the earthquake in Haiti....I'm on a personal all-time low with my overeating. feeling hopeless to ever change. Trusting that my God is bigger than my failures and repeating "their is no condemnation to those who are in Christ." over and over. praying for family and friends, and especially Haiti and her people. Maybe my new year will be tomorrow? who knows;)

The Family Kitchen by Debra Ponzek
I discovered this book at the library, and after having checked it out two separate times decided to just buy the darn thing! I love the idea of cooking with my kids...and they love to "help" as they call it! The recipes are healthy, for the most part, fresh ingredients and whole not processed food. We, meaning Jack Jack and I made the banana bread last week, took it to church on Sunday and there was none, not a crumb to bring back home. It was a very easy, two bowl recipe! I made the pasta primevara recipe, lots of fresh vegetables and after some bribing got the kids to eat it! Yummy! My parents and husband also loved it. Last night I made the homemade bread, the recipe made 3 loaves, 1 and 1/2 are now gone. Love that bread with butter! I can't wait to try more recipes from this book. I would highly recommend it to anyone with our without kids who just wants to cook whole, good foods! I hope the library doesn't charge for stains on the pages! Oh, and the cookbook reads easily with lots of pictures and hints to get the kids into the kitchen. Go and buy this cookbook! I hope to see more from Debra Ponzek soon.
