Where Did We Go Wrong? - Part 2

Last week I discussed in brief detail on where we are going wrong, but that still doesn’t answer where we went wrong.As you know, there is a TON of information out there.  If you’re looking for answers, you can simply type something into Google and watch the auto-fill and links all start to pop up.  A lot of those links will have different similar, but different information.

Where Did We Go Wrong? - Part 1

As some of you may already know, this month is Nutrition Awareness Month.  The name itself says that we should create more awareness towards nutrition.  That could go along the lines of just saying mindful eating.In short, you need to be aware of food.  You need to start with the basics and that means you need to know food is just energy.  Seriously.  Food is nothing more than fuel.

got [Insert Type of Milk] milk?

We didn’t have it too bad when we were kids.  We had cartoons, toys, and milk break.  The hardest question we had to decide was, “Chocolate or White?”  Well, for me it was anyways, and I almost always went with white milk (because I genuinely liked the taste of white milk, not because I was a weird kid or anything...), which then presented the question, “Skim or 2%.”Yeah, back in the day…

While a bear or a lion is unlikely to jump on you from behind the bakery counter there are plenty of traps and poisens. The same self protective way of being is helpful when you food shop today. 

Resolution #1

As part of my New Years resolutions, last night my focus was on playing with my daughter.  Small step, but I felt that she appreciated the time that we were together a bit more than if I had just been sitting there distracted.  I made dinner but took consistent beaks to sit with her and see what she was up to.  At the time, she was working on a scrapbook of our family, which was very sweet and cute and yes, I’ll take some credit for this niceness as the byproduct of the “new” parenting.
