healthy food ????

Okay, for those of you who know anything about me, you know I am the worst eater, drink way to much coke, and hate to work out...well in an effort to prepare for baby #2 (no, not even close to being preggo...)I have decided to adopt my version of healthy eatting

I am looking into a diet that works to control the pH in your body...Some believe that when your body is out of whack, you are at a higher risk for health problems, including cancer. While I am very very new to all of this, it seems very interesting. I am starting slow, very slow!

My new favorite thing to do is JUICE my veggies. I have found it much easier to literally chug a glass of veggies than to painfully chew a whole bowl...So I will post my concoction's for you, if you would like to try and my comments on each.

This morning:

2 oranges (usually always include the oranges for taste) - Vitamins C
2 cups organic spinach -Vitamin B6
2 organic carrots -beta carotene
1/2 organic cherry tomatoes -Vitamin A

This one was tough to choke down, the spinach gave it a very bitter taste...and a very green color. I often have to close my eyes :)



Joey and I are about to embark on our first attempt at gardening....well at least my first attempt. I have decided to get the family going with a healthier, easier lifestyle. I feel like we have been running in different directions for the past two years! So our garden is going to be our new outlet. We first have to clear out all of our junipers on the hill and build the "boxes" for the garden, I will post some fun pictures of the progress!



I have always loved taking pictures but have never been very good at my new hobby "picture takin." I am going to teach myself how to take lovely pictures of my favorite things...babies, flowers, feet and family! Fun, huh...check in from time to time to see my progress :)

Emery's Favorites

Another thing I have decided to do is ask Emery what her favorite part of the day has been and document...

Wednesday: "the music"- we went to an Earth day festival in downtown Woodstock, there happen to be a man playing so music...apparently she liked it

Thursday: "seeing that lady"- my guess would be Sumier and Kiersten, my girlfriend and her daughter from school. We met and played at the park. Very fun!!!

So more to follow


Okay, with my new found "freedom" I have decided that:
A-I am going to try and eat better
B-be a better mom to my sweet baby girl
C-learn to take a really good photograph
D-Start an organic garden
E-try and blog about the three of us just a bit more

So here it goes
