Monday, September 23


Good morning, Monday. This week's theme for the weekly wishes picture is innocence. I took this picture a few months ago on the mountain property that my boyfriend's parents own. These were the only flowers around and they were growing up onto the barbed wire that makes up the fence. The irony of the location for these flowers is what makes them innocent in my eyes.

Last week for weekly wishes, my goal was to organize the time I spend on writing blog posts. I was super successful last week with my goal! There was a big chunk of time where I sat down and wrote 3 blog posts for the week. What a great help that was! And the other post I already had the idea figured out so it took me no time at all to write. Hopefully I can keep up the habit of pre-writing a few posts a week.

This week, my goals are very simple! 1. To drink more water and 2. To eat more fruits and vegetables. I have been seriously slacking in the eating healthy department so I thought I would start slow this week. I usually drink about 1.5 bottles of water throughout the day. This week I want to drink at least an extra bottle of water every day. I also want to incorporate more fruits and vegetables in my diet. That means choosing a plate of fruit at school for my morning snack and finding more vegetable in my meals throughout the day! The fruit part is easy .. but let's see next week on how I incorporated those veggies.

Good luck with the water, this is something I really struggle with!

Love your "innocence" picture!
Looks like I'm still struggling with drinking 1.5 liters of water per day... but I won't give up! I should also consider eating more fruits and vegetables. Good luck with this week's goals :)

I also have an easy time eating fresh fruits--a banana or an orange makes a great snack, but there aren't that many veggies that I actually like raw, so eating them more means a greater commitment to cooking healthy!

What a beautiful photo, Britta! And I am gearing up to do another round of the 30 Day Whole Food Challenge in October. While part of me is weeping over the loss of all my beloved carbs, I'm also pumped to get my eating habits back on track. Good luck this week!

I love your photo! I need to drink more water as well, I love infusing it with yummy fruits! It's easy on weekends but on work days can be much harder- need to find an efficient way to cram this one in!

Beautiful photo! Also, I know this probably sounds silly, but I drink so much more water when I have a fun water bottle. :) Maybe it's time to invest in a new one!

What a good idea of pre-writing your blog posts. I read somewhere about setting up a schedule of when they go out. I might do this when I get busy!
Good luck with this weeks wishes.
Drinking alot of water is something I find hard. I wish it would count when I drink alot of Tea. :(
