Planning Fun

July 4, 2013

in the generous life

I’ve been on a low carb diet that allows me to eat what I want one day a week.

Over the last few months, we’ve turned “carb day” into a day where we do creative things around meals. We look forward to special meals (I had Paul’s mac and cheese yesterday, yummy) or stopping at our favorite frozen yogurt place.

Along the way we started making Wednesday more of a rest and play day as well (Sunday is not usually restful for us). We shop or go to a movie. We take the time to create something fun in the kitchen or have a recreational fire. 

We’re being more thoughtful and intentional about our play. What started out as a simple diet has turned into the gift of planning and then rest and play. Next “carb day” we hope to have friends over for a meal. I haven’t seen them in a while so it’s bound to be a great time of sharing and laughter.

Why not pick a day of the week and make it a special day for you and your husband. Plan to do something together and then make it happen each week.

I love the idea of being more intentional about play and recreation, and structuring it around the “free” day on your diet is a great way to do it.
