Costco Healthy Grocery Haul

Here's my Costco Canada  grocery haul this week!  I picked up a few basics (fruit, veg, Turkey, bread), a few treats for the kiddos (Chicago Mix, croissants) and found a few new low-point treats for me to try. High protein bread (2 personal points for me but not gluten-free so this will be an in-moderation food) and a cauliflower crust kit (4 personal points for me).  I’ll round off this shop with a small haul at another grocery store this weekend, and then I’m already for some batch cooking this weekend.  Now that the kids are back to sports in the evenings I need quick grab-and-go freezer meals: chilli, soup, homemade sauce for pasta etc.  What are some of your favourite  #wwfoodfinds ?

Are Resolutions Meant to Be Broken?

I've always been a member of the "Resolutions are meant to be broken" camp and so I've wrapped them up in pretty new packaging, labelling them as goals, intentions, aspirations, pledge, promise, and my personal fave: purpose. But still, I always broke the new fancy packaging - usually by week 3, and sometimes, before I even started/attempted to start.

Yet every year, on December 31, I find myself pouring over resolution hashtags on Instagram and Twitter, soaking in everyone's lists and imagining a world where I actually accomplished a legit goal.

And this year is no exception. Here's to another year, another resolution!

Like I've declared before (many many many times) this year I will commit to one thing, and one thing only. Getting healthy and in shape - once and for all. I promise to not set up unrealistic expectations about what "getting health and in shape" means. For me, it means losing 20 pounds and keeping it off. It means getting in some activity (30 minutes) every day. Nothing crazy or unattainable. A walk, pilates, a quick HIIT workout - anything that gets me moving and helps me achieve my goal. Healthy foods that don't make me feel sick all the time are key, with treats in moderation, and this one's a biggie: keeping a food journal to see where I can make improvements to my nutrition choices. I don't think this is going to be hard...I just have to make sure I don't get bored, sidetracked, or lazy!

Tomorrow is day 1 of 365...wish me luck!

What's your new year's resolution?
