First off.. I don't think my coffee tastes as good with the actual serving amount "1 tablespoon" haha but I will share this..
I looked on my phone for a calorie counter from the market, downloaded it and signed up. When I got the activation email, the website is *http://www.fatsecret.com/* .. I also just did my bmi http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/ and I am O (having a hard time typing this) B E S E ! UGH.. so last year (haha), I WAS doing great, people were noticing my efforts and then the holidays hit.. some deep sadness, lots of stress, and much good times in between (and lots of yummy foods)..Well, I am starting again. I started keeping track of my meals and let me just tell you about breakfast these past three days

Around 10 years ago!
This past week! ACK!
 Now on to some GOODNESS..

I am very excited to particpate with this.. I try to do this anyway, everyday. But these are some neat ideas to try that we may not have thought of like Kindness Challenge #1: Saying Thank-You 
This is directly from the Toddler Approved blog (there is also a link to another favorite of ours, Teach Preschool)
This week's challenge: Make 5 "Thank You" cards and give them to people you've never thought to thank before . . .

 . . . like your mail carrier, the men and women at your local fire/police station, a soldier, your favorite story time librarian, the teller at the bank who always gives your child a lollipop, etc..

 I created this simple stippling template to make our "Thanks" notes (as seen above), and the kids had fun filling in the dots using an eraser tip/q-tip dipped in paint.

Deborah from Teach Preschool also has a great post on making Thank You cards using your child's artwork (pictured below).

Who will you thank?  Do you have any fun ideas for making and writing thank you notes?
