My bumpy road. Actually Planning Ahead is now a possibility!

Monday, September 23, 2013

In response to my PLAN AHEAD blog, another sparker described her 4 months of planning menus. Her blogs were extremely helpful. emoticon

emoticon In the past, often I too have spent months at a time planning with charts and recipes and nice meals. I knew exactly what I should be eating ...But......at that time I could not get the actual DOING of the PLAN . emoticon I'd spend hours at the computer planning and printing--sitting--without the energy to get into the kitchen to cook or clean or get to the grocery store. emoticon

Thank God I did have at least a little energy to make friends here on Sparkpeople! Many of you have told me how you do this successfully. I have been listening and learning! emoticon

Before, I did not have the actual ingredients in the house, emoticon nor the energy emoticon or time emoticon to followup on the planning. I was still teaching full time and caregiving when I got home.

Things now (I hope!) are falling into place. emoticon I have spent at least a year gathering recipes and getting many of Fuhrman-type ingredients into the house. I am getting close to having all ingredients handy. emoticon

And my kitchen used to be always piled with dirty dishes. Now it is not. emoticon Not only did I retire emoticon but I have been adding a health aide emoticon or house cleaner emoticon here and there to help me. All that is making a big difference. I even started having my groceries delivered when I got ill or depressed and could not go out to the grocery store.

I am putting this into a blog to remind myself how far I have come.
