Monthly Health Challenge- September 2015

If you did or tried last months health challenge you should be accustomed to having many veggies in your home which will make this new health challenge a breeze.

September Health Challenge Is: Eat 3 different veggies per day.

Many times when we have a vegetable at meal times it is the same vegetable throughout the day. Let’s make meal time a bit more colorful and have a different vegetable at each meal during the day. This could be as easy as carrots and hummus for snack, cucumbers and salmon for lunch or roasted brussel sprouts with dinner.

Or if you are really struggling to have a vegetable at each meal, pack all three together at one meal instead. Try roasted potatoes, squash, and onions for a side dish or kabobs are also a great way to mix up a few vegetables at one meal.

It’s SPRING

I am probably the happiest person on earth today because it’s SPRING 🙂

OK, so maybe I am not the only person happy about this fact but I think we should all celebrate together today. Let’s smile a little more. Let’s take a step outside and take a deep breath of fresh air. Let’s imagine the sprouting of little green plants that will soon poke through the ground in the coming weeks. Let’s imagine the leaves on trees reappearing and providing us shade to play under and let’s enjoy the extra hours of daylight that are upon us now.

I am so ready for everything about this season. I already have a good start on cleaning the garage. Shhhh, don’t tell my husband. This is best attempted while he is at work:)

Hubby and I made a trip to a local hardware store to stock up on charcoal for grilling season. I can taste those kabobs already.

We also made an extra purchase that will have me grinning from ear to ear this summer. My new lawn mower. There is just something about cutting the lawn that makes me so happy. Crazy, I know, but I enjoy it for some reason.

No gas, no pulling a cord to start, no nothing. This is the model they had out for a floor display but we ended up getting the next size up that came with a bag also. I have never been so excited about something so unexciting. Now, I no longer have to run and get more gas because “someone” did not leave enough from the last time or they did not refill the can themselves when they emptied it!!! I also will never have to wait until there is someone here to start the lawnmower for me, because ours is too hard for me to start. I can just start mowing. Now, if only we had grass to mow….all things comes to those who wait. Right?

Hope you all enjoy today as much as I will.
