Two month update – 30 by 30

Today I’m two months into my 30 by 30.

I tried quite a few new foods. They just started having more healthy options in the cafeteria at work. The chef is really passionate about the foods he gets and how they are prepared. The whole meal (protein+2 vegs+grain) is 600 calories or less, so it’s a great option. I’ve decided that I’m going update the list from try 3 new foods to prepare 3 new foods to challenge myself even more.

Hubby and I had a beach day while we were at the Cape a couple weeks ago. Due to my very fair skin, I can only be outside for a few hours, so it was a short beach day, but we did it! So technically I only crossed one thing off my list! Ahh. I need to get going on this thing…
