Achieve

I really believe in celebrating small achievements.  I think that finding pride in small actions lead to big changes or accomplishments.  Here are a few small things I’ve achieved lately:

**Incorporating more veggies into my daily diet.  If I don’t make a conscious effort to eat more vegetables daily, I can go days without them.  Lately, I’ve been drinking more green smoothies, adding tomatoes and avocados to my egg sandwiches, and even made kale chips the other night for dinner.

I seasoned them with olive oil spray, nutritional yeast, and garlic salt and baked them at 400 degrees for 8 minutes, flipping them halfway through.

One day, I sautéed spinach and tomatoes and topped the mixture with goat cheese.  That was an easy way to make sure I was getting a good amount of vegetables in.

And I can’t get enough avocados lately.  I love them on…everything.

**Eating at home—Nick and I have really been good lately at not eating out.  When we lived in our apartment, we ate out at least 2-3 times a week, if not more.  Now, we rarely ever eat out and it has become the norm.  It saves us a lot of money and we enjoy eating home cooked meals.  Now, when we do eat out, it is a treat and more enjoyable.

I would love to say working out has been an achievement, but I’ve been so busy lately that I’m physically exhausted 90% of the time.  This week, I plan on changing that and making daily activity something I want to achieve.  Even if it is something as small as a 15 minute walk, I know I will feel better emotionally if I do it.

What is something small you have achieved lately?
