this time is added!!! YOU GIRLS ARE SUPER!!!

During our process of getting fit and healthy, I am sure we want our families to join us! I am always aware that I am responsible to teach my kids to eat right, exercise, and take care of their bodies.

We have been given these amazing bodies and we are entrusted to do good things with them. I hope you include your kids and husbands in this journey, and make it a family affair!!

I found this website and started browsing, some awesome stuff here! I hope you can find something beneficial to help your family!

This time has already been added..... U R AMAZING

healthy snack ideas???

I love to read cookbooks!! And I spend a lot of time looking over recipe websites dreaming up my next meal. But I don't cook!! :p I could cook. I like to cook. Well, OK, I do cook. The same meals. Over and over and over and over again. I'm STUCK in between what I know how to do (quick and easy which often amounts to not healthy), what I want to do (healthy, fresh, different), and having time to do it!!!!

I go to the grocery store and READ LABELS and go home with a headache!!


That really has nothing to do with snacks. But in my quest to find healthy foods, I have found several healthy snacks. I figure you may have too. So if you have a few extra minutes when you're posting your time (I know a few extra minutes is a LOT of time. Really. But if you do...) and you have some good healthy snack ideas, will you share one or two! And heck,if you have a great healthy recipe and you love me you can share that too!!! You can share it in your comment or a post or whatever tickles your fancy. :)

Meanwhile, here's one of those websites I was telling you about....

Have I mentioned that you girls are awesome??!!

I'm so happy to have you all as my exercising buddies!

all because of heather

This fit girls blog has been going on for at least the last four years and we owe it all to Heather and her friend Kemra. Heather is a great friend that had a great idea when she was moving away. She and Kemra wanted to have one last HOO-RAH before she left and they also wanted to EXERCISE. So they combined the two with SAN DIEGO OR BUST! The idea was they would exercise the equivalent miles to San Diego, then actually go to San Diego. I was invited to join the group and I was totally reluctant because of awful back problems I was having, but I joined anyway, because I hate to be left out. The trip itself was a bust for me (I didn't go), but the blog wasn't!!!! The competitive side of me came out and it got me exercising. I loved it and I wanted to keep on going and so I did. ** And I haven't had any more major back problems since.** That's one of the reasons I'm so addicted to exercise. So my point is, Heather and Kemra are awesome!! And I owe a lot to them!!

thank you. thank you. thank you.

And Heather is still motivating me and making me smile here at A Goddess in Progress.

***this time is already added*** LOVE YOU GIRLS... KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON!!!

Here is a little helpful information I found that can help us be healthier and make better choices!!!

Eat more fruits and vegetables. Aim for 4-5 servings each of fruits and vegetables every day, if you consume a 2,000 calorie diet. Vegetable or 100% fruit juice counts toward this goal.
Eat more whole-grain foods. Like fruits and vegetables, whole-grain foods are low in saturated fat and cholesterol and rich in fiber. Whole-grain foods include whole-wheat bread, rye bread, brown rice and whole-grain cereal.
Use olive, canola, corn or safflower oil as your main kitchen fat. Limit how much fat or oil you use in cooking, and use liquid vegetable oils such as olive, canola, corn and safflower oils in place of solid fats.
Eat more chicken, fish and beans than other meats. In general, skinless poultry, fish and vegetable protein (such as beans) are lower in saturated fat and cholesterol than other meats (beef, pork and lamb).
Read food labels to help you choose healthy foods. Food labels provide information to help you make better food choices. Learn what information to look for (for example, sodium content) and how to find it quickly and easily.
