For my first resolution realized for the collaboration with 7 For All Mankind and their “New Year, New Vision” campaign (remember reading about it here?) – I tackled my goal to hit up the grocery store more frequently and cook yummy things at home. Do you know that wearing a pair of distrestred skinny jeans at the grocery store makes you feel like you’re living the dream? Because it does. I made a list before I went, hit up each aisle, and really took my time thinking about what would be smart and healthy things to bring home.
I didn’t get any ice cream (which I always do) and I bought twice the produce I normally would have. I was proud of myself but I know I can do even better next time… Which is why I’ll be going back to the store again this weekend with a more detailed list of ingredients I’ll need to make big batches of healthy things I can take to work for lunch or eat for dinner. Scrambled eggs are easy (and a typical dinner in our apartment) but eggplant lasagna and salmon is way better. Now if I could only break my habit of eating cereal with cow’s milk (gasp – so bad, I know) for breakfast it will be like I’m a new woman.
It’s funny how even a small thing like stocking the fridge and pantry can make you happy. I didn’t think much of it at the time I added it to my list of rezzies but now that I’m finally taking action on said resolutions, I’m pretty pleased! Next week comes vision #2… In the meantime, don’t forget to enter to win the pair of jeans and $500 cash card here!
