Sunday Family Day

I love Sundays!  Especially in the Fall when the weather is awesome! I love going to church and then getting to come home and hang out with the family and REST from the cares of the world for a day together.  😉

breakfast on the way to church: ZonePerfect Sweet & Salty Cashew preztel bar – 5pts+

I LOVE this flavor!

lunch after church: wasn’t really hungry for anything normal for lunch so I decided on my usual oatmeal – 4pts+

We watched the movie 17 Miracles as a family after church.

It was an AMAZING movie about the handcart pioneers and their hardships and blessings. I pretty much cried the entire movie! Was very humbling to realize {again} the sacrifices they made and how easy we have most things now. I am learning daily how to try and be more ‘content’ with the things in my life…..because I am sooo blessed and that I truly have no reason to complain. I am trying to teach that to my kids too.

brown bag popped popcorn (idea from pinterest) during the movie: 3 cups for 3pts+

(too many) snickerdoodle cookies

Family Dinner: Taco Salad & chips- 11pts+


3pts+ each

This is an Oreo EATIN’ family!!!!

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
