I want to lose some weight. I am too jiggly in the middle for me....that's really the area I struggle with the most. I know that I need to work out more and put in the time and exercise to do it. I know that. But, I also know that I need to eat better so there's less fat going IN for my body to hang on to.

I went on library overload tonight. Our library system is online so I can search books in all the libraries in our "system" that can be shipped to our local library. I ordered 15 books on health and healthy eating. I need recipes. I get SO bored with food and rarely make the same thing twice. I want simple, QUICK recipes that everyone...even the kids...will like. I hate the thought of making something special for me because I refuse to make something special for any of the kids when they are being fussy eaters. So, I'm stuck. Yesterday I did really well eating small things more often. I had cottage cheese with half a peach for an AM snack and cottage cheese with half a nectarine for a PM snack, and whatever meals I made for the kids, only small portions. I stayed full and it was awesome.

Today, Auntie Flow arrived and I have a major craving for chocolate that the mint chocolate baking pieces didn't cure. I'm trying really hard not to hit the tootsie rolls because I know that's not what I really want. Water isn't helping.

I want to lose the weight permanently and I'm trying really hard to change the way we eat and live. I've already made walking and running (cardio) a priority. Now, I need to make the food change...then I'll tackle the resistive training/weights. Baby steps, baby steps...

I'd love any recipes you have to offer, too!!
