“I will exercise and make healthy choices all summer long if you go to swimming lessons.”
Just last week, I proudly made this proclamation to my oldest son. The week before, I teased my husband about the physique he’s getting from working an office job after years of working in a more active setting. If I’m being truly honest, I am not in the best shape either. Though– round is a shape, right?
All joking aside, I’ve been encouraged by several to write about the things I’m doing to lose weight. The idea intrigues me, so I have decided to do just that.
We all have our vices, and right now I know I’ve been relying on mine way too much. And it isn’t just my bloated waist that is telling me that.
You see, I use these chip clips a lot. In fact, I have somewhere around 20-24 of the things, but these four are the only ones not being used right now.
Why is this a bad thing? The foods they are helping maintain freshness aren’t going to waste. There are no bugs entering the bags unbidden.
I only use the chip clips on things that shouldn’t be in the house in the first place. The more clips I have on hand, the better we are doing at eating healthy, unprocessed foods as a family.
You see, I use the clips on chips, cereals, crackers, starchy flours, sugar bags, rice cake bags, etc. In the pantry alone there are easily 5 types of opened cereals with clips on them. While this is not just evidence of my eating, it is a way that I can gauge how well we are eating as a family, and these four little clips are clearly showing me that there is currently a problem!
Of course, while my oldest son agreed to my proposition (what was I thinking?!), I think we will all benefit from this promised course of action.
How about you? Do you have any summertime health goals?
