Well it is the dreaded Wednesday again. My weight today is 165 lbs. So no change from last week. I am actually surprised that the number did not go up as again I ate too much over the weekend and since last weekend was a long weekend that meant an extra day of pigging out. If I really want to lose weight I am going to have to watch what I eat 7 days a week not just 5 or 4. Also no workouts to report this week. Not good. This is the point where I would normally probably give up. However, I want to continue to try and make some healthy lifestyle changes. I have been successful at reducing the amount of coke I drink but I know that it would be very easy to start drinking it daily again. I also have been doing pretty good at drinking water, but I have to continue to track how much I am drinking because otherwise I forget to drink it. I have said in the past I have said that I find it easier to drink my water with a straw. Well last week my straw-topped water bottle started to leak, so I had to find an alternative. Most water bottles have either a squirt top or a screw top you have to remove to drink and having a large glass of water around all the time isn't practical as I would probably end up spilling it. So I rigged this up:
I just took a canning jar and poked a hole in the lid for a straw and voila my new water bottle. This isn't an original idea I read about it somewhere (unfortunately I have no idea where or I would give credit). I am enjoying using my new water bottle, it cost me nothing, and as it is made of glass it is probably better for me than a plastic water bottle.
I am a stay at home mother of three girls aged 13 (Star), 11 (Sky), & 3 (LT or Lil), and a boy (LK) who is 5
years old. I live on a farm in rural Saskatchewan and I am striving to live a frugal and healthy life. I love crocheting, reading, and playing with my kids. I don't love cooking or cleaning but as they are part of my job description as homemaker I am trying to change that.
