2015 is the year for massive change in our life. For once I’ll be able to have some time to myself while ALL the kids are in morning school.
I’m embarking on a few new challenges in addition to the Weight Lost Challenge that I announced in October. I’m doing a de-clutter challenge and also a healthy eating one as I re-sync myself in plan with my healthy living motto.
Why start on a De-clutter Challenge?
I’ve been hording too many things in the house which has collected dust since they were purchased. Art material that I had purchased remain untouched as I haven’t really been doing much crafts with them as I’m not really an artsy person.
Bento making equipment and Cookie cutters by the dozen which were bought to create lunch boxes for the kids have been under utilized. The boys do not fancy bringing lunch boxes to school and would rather purchase food from the canteen instead. I’ve decided to use the equipment to make fancy lunches or dinners for the kids instead since they return home for lunch on most afternoons.
The kids have a lot of story books which have been passed down to them from friends with older kids or relatives. There are so many books that they have been cluttering our bookshelf which they do not read. I have yet to go through each of the books in the cupboard to see if they are still suitable for the kids to read or need to be given away to free up space in that cupboard.
Why another Healthy Eating Challenge?
Even though we have stepped up on eating more natural foods at home there is quite a lot that I have to learn. It has been difficult to lose weight last year due to the fact that I may not have been eating right for my body type. I will be actively tuning my diet to get the best out of it and get to my desired weight. The kids too will need to cut out more processed and junk foods from their diet as it will certainly be beneficial to them in the long run.
If you do have any recommendations on healthy eating plans for kids/adults do drop me an e-mail or leave me a comment below .
