WW and Trying New Things: Breakfast Cookies

Since joining WW I've tried to go out of my comfort zone a little, forcing myself to try new things. One of those was trying new recipes. I have to say, this recipe from WW was really easy to make, was super fast in the oven, and tasted great. And as someone who hates eating breakfast, this was a fast and easy way to get some nutrients into my body early in the day (it paired really well with my coffee!). Bonus: it was gluten and dairy-free AND my kids loved it (probably because of the chocolate chips).

Lessons for my Soul

This year I promised to stop making excuses and to stop putting things on my invisible wish list - and just start doing the things I “wished” I could do. Like reading again. My oldest kid will be 10 this year, and since we’ve started our family I can list on one hand the number of books I’ve read. Before kids, I was a reading machine, and I miss it!

So for 2020 I’ve committed to reading 6 books - and I’ve already read 2 and I’m just about to start my third. More on those books later 😉

Next on my list was to make my health a priority as well as to be grateful for the things that I have. I’ve been doing a good job so far - I joined Weight Watchers and have lost almost 6 pounds in a few weeks. I’m more mindful of what I’m eating...but if I’m craving something like chips or a burger I eat it and try not to feel guilty! Baby steps!

Did you make any goals for the year? It’s never too late to start, share your goals in the comments below.
