Be kind to your body

During the holidays I am the worst procrastinator ever when it comes to being kind to my body. Exercise goes to the wayside. Healthy eating gets pushed aside by faster food options. And mindfulness... what's that? It's a terrible way to be and I excuse it by telling myself "I'm too busy" or "This has to be done before that can be done". This year I'm challenging myself to NOT give in to lame excuses and instead keep tabs on my health.

Kind Over Matter is helping me by offering a Be Kind To Your Body Challenge. Thank goodness for other people who take an awesome lead. These type of people are so appreciated. They definitely give you the kick in the arse that you need.

So, today is my Day 2 of the challenge. I've been able to fight the urge to dip into the Halloween Candy jar because I'm tracking what I eat on LoseIt.com. It is nowhere near easy because after working, cleaning and running the kids around all afternoon all I want to do is rip off my jeans, throw on my comfy pjs, plop myself on the couch and munch on sweety, salty goodness.

I took a pic of my breakfast this morning because it looked so pretty. And it was super yummy and filling as well!

Brown Rice Rice Cake topped with peanut butter, strawberries, blackberries, bananas and blueberries sided with Oregon Chai's Peppermint Original. Mmmmmm.

Three cheers for health! Hip! Hip! Hooray!
