John and I are putting a lot of effort on our family wellness goals for the better part of this year. With both of us out of commission on the exercise front, we’re both kind of antsy to get back on track.
Our family wellness goals:
- Take walks with Roey twice a week
- Make use of the park nearby for runs
- Eat a balanced, low carb, high veggie diet
- Cut out our “bad” snacking habits
- End the year fitter, healthier and more energetic than we started it
We also have personal wellness goals. John wants to get back to his former weight, and increase his strength, while I am going to want to lose this baby belly and increase my flexibility. Roey’s wellness goal is to eat more greens. (he just doesn’t know it yet)
John’s foot is healing up slowly but surely, and he’s excited for the day he can run and work out full force again. I’m excited for the day I get cleared to work out after BabyH2.0 gets here!
We’re eating fairly well, but can always do better. John eats a mostly low carb diet with Sunday as a cheat day. I eat…well…right now…any and everything.
John and I tried two of Kashi’s new Crunchy Granola & Seed Bars in two yummy flavors: Honey Oat Flax and Chocolate Chip Chia to replace some of our current unhealthy snacks. I’m super picky with these types of snack foods and have to be careful due to my nut allergy.
Happy to report that I really liked them. They’re made with ingredients I don’t see in snack bars: Chia seeds, Quinoa, Flax… and both flavors are chock full of Omega 3s, Fiber and Whole grains. The Kashi bars have a light sweetness to satisfy that craving, too. John liked them as well, and ate the better part of both boxes. He stashed a couple in the car for his drive into Manhattan for work. I like them with a cup of tea in the morning before things really get going, but can see myself just grabbing one to eat in that lull between lunch and dinner.
OK let me be real, I’m uber preggo, there is no lull anymore…the eating is non stop. But you know what I meant…under normal circumstances, lol.
