Fresh Start

Not looking back to the weekend. I've brushed myself off and am now holding my head high. This week is about starting fresh. I plan on hitting the gym hard, being diligent with my calorie counting and logging my food...I'm pretty good with keeping a log anyway, but I could tighten it up a bit.

Now, onto FMM...

Friend Makin’ Mondays is always fun, but having so much interaction last week made it awesome! Don’t you think?  So let’s get creative with our answers again this week and make it even better than last week! =)
If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: What’s in Your Fridge?

      1. List a few common items that can always be found in your fridge.  Milk, yogurt, cheese and condiments
      2. What kind of milk do you drink? Organic skim milk or Almond Milk 
      3. Do you prefer fresh or frozen vegetables? Fresh, of course. I have a few staples in the freezer for "emergencies" 
      4. What do you currently have to drink in the fridge? Water is "on" the fridge. Milk, and some lemonade 
      5. How often do you clean out your refrigerator? You're supposed to clean out the fridge? ;-)  Ours gets cleaned out on it's own. If not, I try to tidy up in there before I hit the grocery store. 
      6. What’s the healthiest thing in it right now? Salad mix, snow peas, peppers
      7. What’s the most unhealthy thing in it right now? St. Brendan's Irish Creme. It's from Christmas time...the only time I ever drink Irish Creme. 
      8. What do you wish you had in it that you don’t have now? Strawberries. Guess what I'll be picking up today?
      9. How often do you shop for groceries? A few times a week. I do a "major" shop once a week or every 10 days and then I pick up items that I wouldn't normally pick up when I do my major other words, I shop around. 
      10. What’s the weirdest thing in your fridge right now? Anise. I'm not a big fan. Hubs likes it. He picked it up. 


  1. LOL - I'm waiting for the frig-cleaning fairy, too!
    Hi, stopping in from FMM.

  2. Anise reminds me of my mom-ster, she loves it. snow peas again, I have to go get me some, and maybe try this almond milk I hear so much about. Stopping by from FMM

  3. Heh, I have anise in my spice cupboard. I've never bought it fresh! What's it like? (Hello from FMM)

  4. Thanks for your comments on my FMM post.
    I have never tried the Almond milk. I see so many people are using it now. Do you really like it? How different it it compared to cows milk?

  5. I'm not a huge fan of Anise. Although I really like licorice which is what it tastes like so go figure. :D

    Almond milk isn't bad. I switched over for a while because of all the railing again cow's milk and. We only have milk in our cereal and my little guy drinks chocolate milk in the morning (bad habit, I know). I tend to go back and forth depending on my mood.

  6. I like Almond milk, but my son is allergic, so for the little bit of milk I drink, I'll stick to regular for now. I've never used anise though - different!

    Stopping by from FMM. :)

  7. What do you do with fresh anise? Just use it as you would dried/ground? Or is there something wonderful you can do with it that I've never heard of (I love anise!)

  8. Shannon - hubs eats it raw. I'm not a fan so I don't use it.
