Bringing Balance….and a new blog!

So in light of my new life……

I’ve decided to start fresh. Brand new me, brand new blog.

So here I am. On my own for the first time in, well……ever. My goals? Hmmm…where do I start?

Let’s start with….

  • maintain a healthy lifestyle. This is SO important to me. My philosophy is to eat well, whole, balanced foods with a little indulgence thrown in on the weekends.
  • Exercise! Oodles of exercise. Unfortunately this priority has been nonexistent over the past 7 months. Oh how I miss the gym and my workout routine. I wonder if the gym misses me too?
  • Blogging! I can’t believe I let go of this amazing support network for the past 7 months (not to mention all the incredible recipe ideas I’ve missed out on!)

I’ve decided to join the not-so-secret society of food bloggers and will be posting pictures of my eats as often as I can. I figure if I am too embarrassed to take a picture of it, I probably shouldn’t be eating it right?

You’ll have to give by a little leniency today since it’s Day 1 back on my journey to a healthy lifestyle. I blame Costco for coming up with these little gems…

Mmm Chiabatta….

I’m sort of glad that the nutritional info isn’t included on these little guys. But maybe that’s a bad thing….

Dinner tonight? Grilled chicken and veggie chiabatta sandwiches. Chicken, green pepper, onions, black olives, tomato, topped with skim Mozza and a dab of southwest sauce and fat free ranch dressing. The result…this DELICIOUS sandwich. Yum!

Until tomorrow…..

    mmmm Chiabatta bread. That sandwich looks yummy. Good for you for getting back into blogging. I find it helps me stay accountable for what I am eating and keeps me on track when it comes to going to the GYM. I look forward to reading your next post and to see some of your new low fat recipes.
