Feeling Down

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

I've been reading the Spark lately and I am not into the action steps of their 28 day plan. I have tried to do the Spark Stages before and haven't gotten past stage 2 (I think) and it's really hitting me today that for some reason I am not sticking to my eating plan. Thankfully the past few days I have not gone over any nutritional goals, but at the same time I am not thinking of them. I need to get back into cooking at home, even if that means using my crock pot more.

My biggest problem comes from my husband. He only likes a few select veggies and I get tired of eating the same thing over and over. I love a wide variety of food but we seem to stick to a few of the same meals over and over. It doesn't help that I am currently working as an Intern and have no energy, I have motivation, to stand and cook dinner. I realize that sitting at a computer may not seem that draining, but I am being creative, or having to restrain it in some cases (much harder for me), so I am mentally drained and just want to relax and unwind. I will start cooking at home more again though.

    Maybe you can try to cook some usual meals in the crockpot that can be frozen or put in the fridge that can be used for a few days, then make some food, still in the crockpot, just for you for other days.

    A way to change up your meals a little: Spices. That may seem ridiculous but a meal can totally change depending of the spices you put.

    I agree, it's not always easy. Hang on!

    Sometimes you just have to fore your self to do it. Hang in there, you'll hit a bottom rung on the ladder and get moving again! Good luck!
