I have a healthy habit AND a cute shirt

Yep, pretty much just one, but a great one at that. I add ground flaxseed and wheat germ to my morning cereal and I'm pretty sure I'm going to live longer because of it.
Flaxseed is like the power house of all foods. I sprinkle it on my cereal and I also take a flax oil supplement every day. It is full of Omega 3 fatty acids that are heart healthy essentials, it has plant estrogen and antioxidants, and fiber! Wheat germ is full of vitamins and I love the added texture to my Honey Bunches.

I also add these two to things like pancake batter, homemade coffee cake or cookie dough. I like to sneak it in as much as possible for the kids in foods that otherwise seem empty of nutrition. They have never noticed-tee hee

Ok so spring is finally here(80 in DM today) and I found a cute shirt at Target! For some reason right now I love navy blue and turquoise-not a usual for me. Anyways, Bec and I were discussing clothes yesterday. It's so hard to find something to wear after a baby, even when you have lost all the weight your body just isn't right for a while.

Look at me-a new cute little shirt and I can't get out of my favorite ratty jeans. My sister sent me a gazillion pairs and I keep putting these on. I don't know what it is. They are worn out in the knees, paper thin in the cheeks and I'm still in love. They don't even make my body look that great, but they have become the sweat pants of my jean collection. pathetic
Thanks to Asher for a job well done behind the camera

Love the shirt and ditto for the jeans! Tanner likes to stick his fingers in my holey jeans. Luv wheat germ on my yogurt. I will have to try the flaxseed, I love sneaking things in wherever possible. I agree too about the clothing issues. I am a lower weight than i have been since I got married and I still don't think I'll ever be able to wear a bikini again. Got to stop comparing myself to those celeb moms who unrealistically get in a bikini two weeks after giving birth.
