A win, fitness, and food thoughts

April 20th, 2016 at 06:36 am

So, Murphy left our house and we finally got some great news.... my oldest daughter entered into a national magazine's giveaway/sweepstakes last month and she was chosen as the winner!! It a package value worth about $5k. I won't say what it is just yet as it won't come to fruition for another month but once we get it all, I'll let you guys know. Let's just say that any teenage girl would be tickled to have won this...

In other news, my DH bought us fitbits (he sold some stuff to purchase them so they didn't hit our budget because I told him we didn't need them). I am actually quite happy with this little gadget. I am a tracker by nature so keeping up with my activity levels all day has been great. We've gone to the gym very regularly, I'm pleased to report, so our new $50/month has been definitely worth it.

For the past 2 weeks, DH and I have decided to go vegan. We have never eaten a ton of meat but dairy/cheese products have always been in our diet. We decided to go all vegan and plant based and so far so good. It's actually been pretty easy. Our kids have asked us to allow them to try vegetarianism instead and we are happy to let them try that instead (they love cheese pizza haha). Anyway, we are attending a local vegan potluck meetup today and looking forward to meeting other like-minded folks. I know it's not for everyone but we have been enjoying this journey so far.

    I'm loving my Fitbit too. It does make me more aware of how much I'm moving or not moving! My parents went vegan for nearly two years, they have added in eggs more recently. And that is so neat that your daughter entered and won such a prize!

    Very cool that you're trying veganism! I've been vegan for over 20 years. (I do allow myself cheats such as some fake meats that contain dairy, and pastries if someone else is buying or if I'm on the road.)

    Since no one else in the family is vegan (though they eat a lot of vegan meals by virtue of living with me), we let the kids have dairy, eggs and fish. They love cheese pizza too! The funny thing, though, is that one of them often asks for vegan cheese on hers. Luckily the closest pizzeria uses the same brand I use at home. Big Grin
