With the start of the new year, one of the things I’d like to do is make sure I am eating better. Being home during the day leaves me wide open to snacking throughout the day. Something I really haven’t done since I was a teen. Typically my work day consisted of me having a granola bar of some sort.
With my new job, I’ve been eating more lunches at home and it kind of weighs me down for the rest of the day and makes me sleepy. What I’d really like to do is get either a juicer like the Cuisinart - Pulp Control Citrus Juicer - Stainless-Steel/Black or a blender like the Oster - 16-Speed Blender - Brushed Nickel.
Just the thought of having fresh juice makes me salivate. I’ve never had anything fresh out of a juicer so I’m sure I’d want to try it for different recipes! My brain is already concocting different ways to it. As for the blender, I have wanted one of those for a long time!
When I was reading the box today, it said that I could make smoothies and frappuccinos too! Those would be SO great during the summer months and it would keep my pocketbook healthy by not paying for them at a coffeehouse. I’d really just like to like a smoothie for my lunch substitute. Better than a granola bar and less than a full meal that I typically don’t eat.
The other thing I’d like to invest in is a grill/panini maker! Making sandwiches at home sounds so awesome! And there are days where I’d like to make some burgers or grill some chicken, but have no desire to fire up a grill outside or it’s too cold or it’s too wet.
Now, don’t feel like you’re leaving here empty handed because you’re not! WOOT! I know that a lot of people start the new year off making resolutions or goals to get healthier throughout the coming year. I have a couple of coupons to help you get started on the right foot!
One is a coupon for 20% off Small Kitchen Appliances (valid 1/13/13-2/13/13 see coupon for details) and one is for 20% off Health & Fitness Products (valid 1/13/13-2/13/13 see coupon for details). For the record, I WILL be putting this to use!
Being that I don’t walk 6 hrs a day any more at work, I’m thinking a pedometer would be good to have so I know what I need to do to keep up with the amount of walking I used to do. All of that walking 4-5 days a week really kept me in decent shape. Now I’m afraid I’m going to become too sedentary sitting at home for work all day.
Speaking of which, if you DO work from home, how do you not become a blogger sitting around in your pjs all day and not getting a lot of movement? If you have suggestions, feel free to pass them on.
