this yumminess is what gets me in trouble every time. the perfect reward for meeting my first goal?
H is two years old now. Apparently I've lost 10 and then gained five pounds since this time last year. Booo! Hissss!

I can't totally get rid of the decadent and caloric snacks I have around the house, because unlike me, the other folks around here could stand to gain a few pounds. So in order to combat my wandering (to the snack cabinet) eye, I'll need to have some artillery of my own.
HEALTHY SNACK LIST:
-a hard boiled egg with a half cup of grapes
-a savory parfait made with two tablespoons of low fat cottage cheese, a quarter of an avocado chunks, and a table spoon of raisins.
-a packet of instant unsweetened oatmeal with cinnamon and chopped nuts
-hollowed out zucchini halves topped with guacamole
-a low fat Greek yogurt with a cup of your favorite berries
-a cup of baby carrots with two tablespoons of hummus
-a cup of steamed in the pod edamame
-a half cup of high fiber cereal with skim milk
-a 100 calorie pack of almonds and a banana
-a handful of whole wheat crackers and a wedge of laughing cow cheese, cucumbers
I've taken the liberty of creating a printable list to take to the grocery store here.
Keeping it real: My mom has gotten on the healthy eating and exercise kick and lost like 40 pounds?! If she fits into my jeans before I do, I may spiral into a deep depression. The good news is, my sister has gained a few pounds, so I'm not totally the chunky one anymore:-)
So lets set some goals…
First to lose 5 pounds. READY, SET, GO!
