Eat Better, Move More

April 2017 - We've all heard it before because it's a simple formula. You can eat less, move more, or - ideally - you can do those two things in tandem. As I move into my mid-forties, I am definitely trying to be better about all of this. However, instead of 'eat less,' because that is exceptionally challenging as a food writer, I am making my mantra: eat better, move more.

My goal is not necessarily weight loss, though that would be a welcome effect. My goal is to be more healthy - to, again, eat better and move more. On the eating better side, I'm bad with diets. So, I will start with actively cutting out processed sugars and being more mindful of snacking.

This page will be a work in progress, but my first step towards moving more was to join a group of local moms and register for a race. It's been a long time since I've run a race...probably since I started having problems with my plantar in 2009. Though it appears from the photo above that I ran the Big Sur 10.6 miler in 2010. Still, it's been a long seven years with minimal running.

So, I'll start slow. Really slow. Still one foot in front of the other is still better than sitting on the couch, right?!

Come September, I'll be running the Wicked Wine Run with the Hot Buns Racing Team! Thanks for letting me join, Jenn. Stay tuned for my journey towards earning that 'hot buns' label. ;)

Serendiptiously, I was just selected to review some items for PACT Organic through my role with MomsMeet as a blog ambassador. As I launch this Eat Better, Move More journey, I'll be doing it in some new gear.* I loved that the box reads: "Change starts with your underwear." Okay! New underwear? Check. Change? It's a coming!

I even received a 2-pack of men's boxer brief for my Love. He whined that he only got one thing and I got "more than [he] could count!" Too funny.
