Back to Basics – Clean Eating, Exercising and Family

Summer has been a blast. Too much fun, really. We started with a trip to the Balboa Island for a week with my in-laws and husband’s family.

We’ve been back to Shaver any free weekend we have, just hanging out with friends and taking out the boat.

I’m so ready to get back on track and get back to the boring daily schedule that the School year provides.  I love summer and all the extra day light it provides, but I am way more healthy when life is boring.

I eat better when we are home and not traveling. I plan dinner for the week and we aren’t eating out nearly as often.  I work out more consistently and harder when there’s no all day on the lake days that ruin a week’s worth of healthy living.  We also spend more time together as a family just hanging out at home when the kids are on a schedule.  No more mid-week sleepovers, camps with friends and quick, unhealthy dinners! Even though school doesn’t start for another 3 weeks, I’m getting a jump start on my health and getting back to basics starting today.

Cooking wholesome, healthy and balanced dinners is my first priority and on tonight’s menu is THIS recipe from none other than Pinterest! I’ll let you know how it goes!
