Day 1 :: Our "new" life

This summer we have had some major changes happen.  I am no longer working full time, only part-time, the girls have been gone all summer (they are finally coming back tomorrow), I've had some female issues, that I am still dealing with, and I've quit smoking.  Whew.  It's so nice to be able to say that.  I've quit smoking.  It hasn't been easy, but I am determined for us all to start leading a healthier lifestyle!  2 weeks today, smoke free. 

Which, begins my next journey.  I want my family to start eating healthier.  So, starting this week, I am going to stop buying so much prepacked foods, no more "junk" foods, and we are going to start drinking more water and tea instead of soda.  I know it's going to be hard, because we are use to things the way they are now.  But, we can do it!

I want us to be as healthy as we can be, and I want the girls to always make good decisions with their food choices, and I don't see how they can, if Brent and I don't show them how to.  The girls are not picky eaters by far, and I know that they eat healthier at their Dad's house.  Jenna asked if we could start buying more fruit, so Yes Ma'am, we can. 

I'm  going to use this Blog to tell our story.  Hopefully, it will keep me motivated to make good choices, especially when I know I have to be accountable here. 

Also, with our income cut down, I'm going to use this to keep up with that as well.  I don't want to be an *extreme* coupon er, but I do want to save money for our family.

This is a blog about us, our life.   I'll post pictures of Jenna and Ashley, I'll probably rant when things don't go my way, and I will probably fail from time to time.  But, this is a place where I will keep up with it all... welcome to our Story.
