After many visitors, much cooking and LOTS of eating, I am ready for this fresh, NEW YEAR! Wow, it's been an exhausting (but fun) past couple of weeks!!!
Chris is back to work. Dylan is back to school. Lil' Peanut and I are slowly getting back into our normal routine.
As mentioned in my previous post, our family is going to get into better shape for this New Year. I don't like the term "dieting", and that's not really what we're doing anyway. It's a LIFESTYLE change. We can still have the food that we love, in smaller portions AND we will be a lot more active.
So far, I've done really well with it. I have been getting on the treadmill (almost) daily and already feel better. I'm already down 1 pound!!! I know, not much, but remember...I don't want to lose any weight...I just want to get a little more toned. However, with exercise, I am sure to drop a few. That's fine by me.
Are you trying any new recipes? I love a great soup packed with lots of veggies. Here is a twist on minestrone soup that I found. I have never had this soup with cabbage. It sounds pretty darn good.
Basically, add the ingredients in order given and bring to soft boil. Simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
More recipes coming!
Have a great day and stay warm!
