I have been talking a lot over about how I've made a commitment with myself to focus on my own health and stop using the "I don't have time to take care of myself and exercise" excuse all the time.
I'm about a week and a half into it, and I have to say it is going really well. I've been walking 10,000 steps a day, which is about 6,000 more than I get naturally. Just taking the time to get outside in the fresh spring air has done wonders for me both physically and mentally. I'm feeling fitter already.
I've also done a great job at cleaning up my diet with delicious recipes like this quinoa salsa.
It's not that I ever ate really bad. I just fell into the trap of grabbing easy convenience food because after taking care of four other people who almost never agree on a meal, I was too tired to do anything else. Veggies (other than the limited ones the boys eat) were taking a back seat because chopping felt like too much work.
Lately, I've been forcing myself to plan my meals ahead of time and just this focus has brought everything back into line.
This Avocado Lime Quinoa Salsa is an amazing addition to my menu.
I enjoyed it on this Fajita Bowl and on these Taquitos.
It's also great over eggs and on a variation of these easy veggie wraps. (That I eat at least three times a week.)
Of course, I'm sure it would be sensational with chips, but I have thus far used self control and refrained from trying it. (Just because chips are a weak spot for me and I don't trust myself to stop at a reasonable portion.)
The biggest thing I've learned is what a difference making myself a priority and taking the time to plan makes.
