Lately, I’ve been trying to make small changes in our diet. Small enough that the boys don’t notice, but enough to make a difference in our health. It’s a slippery slope!

Small changes

I hope small changes will equal big results!

So I’ve written about how much I love to run many times. There’s a little something that I’ve never told you. I hate lifting weights.

Hate it.

I’m not strong and never have been. I can train and lift and gain a little strength, but not much. Isn’t it funny – funny strange, not funny haha – that we like to do what we’re good at?! I’m good at running, well, I’m not fast, but I do have good endurance. I like running. I’m not strong. I can’t lift as much as my workout partner and I don’t like lifting weights. However, I’m turning over a new leaf, because I know that as I age I need to workout with weights. As much as I don’t like that my partner is stronger and better at lifting weights, instead of quitting, this time I’m looking at it as a challenge, a competition, something to work toward.

I’ve never had a workout partner I hate running with someone else, but I think I need to get out of my comfort zone with weight lifting. My goal for the next month is to

  1. Change my attitude about lifting weights. No more saying “I hate it.” I’m going to repeat ‘I like lifting weights.” until I believe that I do!
  2. Work out with a partner to keep motivated.

What about you? Is there a workout that you don’t like? Is there a workout that you love? How do you stay motivated?

Coconut Oil Pie Crust

Coconut Oil Pie Crust

Using coconut oil is a healthier alternative than butter for a pie crust. The result will be a light, flaky, crispy and tender crust. I use an all-natural, pure coconut oil with zero transfats per serving. Coconut oil needs to be refrigerated before trying to dice it. It's break and shatter, do the best you can to get it in uniform pieces.

  3. I’m glad to know that coconut oil makes a good pie crust. I pinned another recipe for coconut oil crust. They suggested to measure the oil in a liquid state, then refridgerate until hard. Then use a box grater to get the uniform pieces needed to mix in with the flour and salt. ‘Would be good to try this too.
