New Year, New You

So Bec is back from her holidays and rearing to go - we kicked off with a Body Beyond Baby group training session this morning and it was great to see so many keen mums and their little bubs ready to launch into the New Year with lots of energy and commitment.

I have entered the new year with a one way ticket into the world of purees, sticky fingers and messy floors - our journey into the world of solids has begun. Its so cool to introduce Marley to his first foods and it really instills the need to ensure he has the best and healthiest of options. Why is it as adults we allow these needs to go out of the window? Filling ourselves with second rate foods, some of which have absolutely no nutritional value at all?

I can be guilty of this, sometimes that chocolate bar, bag of lollies or burger seems just too tempting. This is why its always a good idea to pull yourself back in from time to time and what better time than the start of a new year? Pull out that food diary or start one if you've never done it before - record everything that you eat and drink along with when and really look at it to see if you are eating the right foods at the right time.

Tune tomorrow for my food diary.
