it's the little things...

...that add up to big things!

I've been trying to continue to make small, subtle changes in our lifestyle. To get where we've gotten we've certainly changed a lot but it is time to start turning it up a notch!

Getting food ready...
Getting exercise clothes ready...

Here's a few things I did this weekend. I'll share more as I do them :)

Roasting Vegetables. I estimate this will last us about 6 or so servings. We had it for dinner 2 nights in a row and have about 2 more helpings left. I roasted them in a 9 x 13 pan with some water and the oven at 350 degrees. I stirred them about every 15 minutes. At about 30 minutes in I added 1 TBSP of organic coconut oil, salt, and pepper. I cooked the veggies for about 1 hour 15 minutes total. Next time I will wait to put the asparagus in because it was so soggy! We will definitely be doing this a few times a month. It's great for leftover dinner or lunches!

Dinner with the veggies as a side!
Today I met one of my bestie for lunch in downtown Portland! I parked in a garage because I don't like to deal with the headache of street parking/meters. The garage was so full that I ended up having to park on the 9th floor, which would also be known as the top floor. I decided to use this to my advantage and take the stairs...both ways! I was super proud of myself!!
10 minutes at a time!
I also did a 10 minute barre3 online video {please don't mind the PJs}! I've been trying to get up and so something during commercials! It is way more easy to sit for hours at a time and watch TV. Just even getting up in between shows would be a good start to the change.
These are a few little changes/cognizant decisions I've made in the past few days!! Have you made any? Will you make any now?
Fingers crossed {that I can find a few more ways to inspire myself and hopefully you, too}...
