Trying new things

My orders of flax seed and quinoa came today and I finally got to taste what quinoa was, I like it. I think I'm going to prefer it as a breakfast thing.I have some left over and I'm going to add blueberries with it in the morning.They sent a pack of chia seeds as a bonus and those should be interesting. I'm really trying to eat healthier and it has been one step at a time.It's really hard to break old habits when you are older.

I still like my coffee and I haven't been drinking soft drinks that much.I drink my green tea and been drinking water more. So yeah it's hard.But I can already feel the difference.

I also ordered some more beads.I found some lovely blue size 8.I usually use those to embellize my beadwork with. I work alot with size 11s and delicas.I have no idea right now what I'm going to be working on but something will come to mind.

Now if I can get some of this weight off I'll be back to normal.It's hard to do when you've got a bad back and a bad knee. But I'm going to give it my best shot.Cutting out certain food habits I know will help. I don't just sit round all day.I get up do little things around the house when it needs doing. Unfortunately I don't have anyone to help me. Hubby works so hard and he's tired by the time he comes in.So whatever I can get done is my motto lol

Ok I went ahead and fixed the quinoa with blueberries,I added a pack of stevia in and wow I like it! I don't think this stuff makes you feel full like rice does.However, I think fresh berries not frozen would be so much better.
