Healthy Goal Numero Uno

It's been a goal of mine for a LONG time now to really start eating healthier and...well... overall living a more healthy lifestyle (my french fries and cheeseburger from McDonalds today was not necessarily part of the plan but I figure I need some kind of protein, carbs and dairy somewhere in my diet....Right???).  Anyway, Justin and I have been talking about some changes that we can make and all that good far it's just been talk and not so much action.  We aren't awful eaters, like eating cookies and donuts for dinner or anything but we could definitely benefit from eating and living a little better than we do!  And it's not that we don't like healthy food sometimes easy is just....well...easier!!  (I'm in search of some easy, healthy meal ideas, I really want to enforce this especially when Mia gets a little older....I don't want my kids eating shit all the time).

Natalie (lil sissy) had to return some stuff to Kirkland Homes today so I decided to go with her (which I shouldn't have...that's a whole other post...spent way too much money....we'll just leave it at that for now) and we decided to stop at Trader Joe's.  We had never been there before.  It was this whole other grocery world.  I was a little confused though, I didn't know if everything was organic or what the story was.  Well it's not all organic, some is all natural.  WHAT THE HELL IS THE DIFFERENCE???  I have no f'ing clue!!!  I'm so confused....why is trying to be healthier so fricken confusing (and expensive)????  I obviously need to read up on some things and figure this shit out because I have NO idea where to even start.  I'm really wanting to go organic with some stuff but where do you start.....I can't just jump head first into this whole thing. I JUST WANT TO EAT BETTER for the love of god!   I did however buy some organic Apple Cidar Vinegar which was recommended by a new blogging friend of mine, Heather.  (Haven't tried it yet but Natalie got some as well and said it tasted somethin awful!!!  Not real excited about it but I'll try anything I guess!) 

So my goal this week is to research a little more and figure out where the best place to start is.  I can only hope that I will achieve this goal this week....I'll let ya'll know!!!   Side note goal:  NO french fries this week!!!
