Good for you getting up and motivated !! You might want to take some of those baked goods to a nursing home or a homeless shelter. That way you don't give up on your hobby. Also check out some of the SparkPeople recipes. Change up some of those ingredients and make it a much healthier recipe.

It has been difficult mentally to get myself out and around other people. My husband and myself have become housebound due to his health issues. What is more, I find myself sitting around a great deal of the time keeping him company. When I get bored I bake. NOT good. I enjoy cooking so food has become the highlight of our days. After a talk with my doctor about how frustrated I was getting, so unlike the usual busy high energy person I was, not so many years ago,, he encouraged me to get out and not give up on trying to eat healthy and lose weight.. My husband sleeps a lot escaping pain so he wouldn't miss me or mind if I went out. I have set a goal to get out, being the smallish mall, where I can walk out of the weather and enjoy a cup of coffee with friends I haven't met yet. (If you know the saying). Staying home more or less alone was not doing me any good. Three times a week if not more I drag him off the couch to drive me to the mall Good for him and I then back to pick me up later. It is good for both of us. I am losing my eyesight as well. Thank you Spark People for giving me a place to go for help.
