Learning to love new things

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

I have been a member for a while now, but I am just now using the page as its intended and actually working on improving and loosing!

One thing I have learned is I am going to have to learn to love new things. Just like blue cheese is an acquired taste, well for me that's sweet potatoes, oatmeal and exercise! These are things I don't particularly like and avoid. However they are good for my health and I need to love them.

I will never be a marathon runner (I suspect, as I detest running). Maybe a 100lbs from now I will love running? But for right now I walk. I actually enjoy walking and am going to learn to LOVE IT. I like the quite (I have two kids....), I like the alone time (again.. I have two kids). The problem is I cant always seem to find time to walk in my hectic crazy life!

Tomorrow I will eat a sweet potato and black beans for lunch. I am optimistic that since the sweet potatoes isn't mashed and covered in marshmallows for thanksgiving I might actually enjoy them! We will see.

I am determined to love new things. Inspire and encourage me and others? Are there things you all have learned to love? emoticon

    I try to try one new thing a week whether it be a veggie, fruit a Spark recipe or some other type of food. I have found that I really like acorn squash. This week I plan on trying edamame. Wishing you the best on your journey!

    How do you prepare acorn squash DMEYER? I used spaghetti squash once with a weight watchers recipe, it was not bad. But like sweet potatoes I feel like the spaghetti squash and sweet potato are TOO sweet. I like salty, fried things that's my struggles so these sweet things aren't my favorite, yet! I need to add them since they are good for my diabetes.
