These days I am all about quick and easy.

Recently I picked up a FoodSaver but it was still sitting in the closet waiting for me to have the energy to figure it out. Today I went to Costco to pick up some stuff so I could prep my meals for the next week or so, so it was time to figure out that dang machine.

My little win for the day is that I used it to prep multiple meals (2 weeks worth) that will make it sooooo much easier for me to just grab something out of the freezer that has already been portioned and is ready to cook.

This is pretty important for me because it really helps me keep on track.

Now I am wondering why I didn't use it sooner!

As I learn more about myself, (such as being an all or nothing kind of person) I now know that I cannot skip my daily walks unless I simply cannot get out of bed. Once I miss a day, it is so dang hard to get back out there the next day. Over the last several months I had fallen almost completely off the wagon (in terms of my fitness) and just about gave up.

It's time to start fresh.

So, my little win for the day is that my FitBit Blaze, that I ordered, came in the mail today, and I am once again, motivated to get it done.

P.S. I used to use Jawbone to track fitness, but I wasn't nearly as happy with it because I like to look down and know where I am in my progress, right this minute (for the day) without having to open the app every time.

there are fitbit challenges and if you want, we can challenge each other. I am like you (all or nothing) and welcome fitbit challenges to help me push past any laziness and force me to do more.

Once I am confident that I am reaching my personal daily goals on a consistent basis, I will definitely be reaching out to you for this!

I discovered that my local Jimmy John's provides nutrition information on their site and has an option to lettuce wrap (unwich) any of their sandwiches. That means I can have my favorite sandwich for 2 carbs instead of 76 carbs. Even better, I don't feel like cooking or going anywhere and they deliver.

Can you see me doing my happy dance?

That moment when you realize that you're making progress with your fitness...

Tonight, I suddenly realized that hills and stairs are getting easier for me.

Love the little wins!
