I need to learn to enjoy cooking

Monday, April 07, 2014

Today was a pretty good day. I didn't get up when I wanted to, but I will try again tomorrow. My legs were pretty sore today, so all I did as far as exercise was walking with my hubby after work. Spring in Montana is beautiful and I am so happy to live close to a pretty decent walk path. If I ever get a new camera, I'll have to post a picture sometime. The view is amazing! Eating today wasn't too bad. I think the only thing that I would have changed is ordering and six inch sub for dinner instead of a foot long. I am so bad when it comes to dinner. By the time my husband and I get home and get done taking care of the dogs it's pushing 6-6:30 and cooking is the last thing that we want to do. Every week I seem to make a new oath to myself, that as soon as the weekend gets here I am going to cook. Then the weekend rolls around and we're still eating out. It's not that I can't cook, I'm just not into it. I know that eating at home is so much better for my health, but how do you get yourself motivated? Does anyone else have this problem. When I do eat out I try to make the healthiest choice possible, but deep down I know that I'm eating garbage. I don't want my kids to have to live that way, so I am hoping that when the time comes I can dig deep and get it done. emoticon

    I don't know why I don't enjoy it, it just doesn't interest me. When I do cook, it's always the same ol' thing over and over. My poor husband gets so burnt out on some recipes. I have tried trying new recipes, but I just hate it when they don't turn out. It feels like such a waste of time and money when that happens. My husband and I have talked about using the crock pot, but how healthy can that really be? I'll have to do some research. Surely there is something out there. All I know is that something has to change. I'm not going to get anywhere if I don't start watching what I eat. Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing some useful tips. I hope you have a great evening. :)

    I love to cook and it's a passion of mine. I'm not sure which is worse - loving to cook or not loving to cook! They each have advantages and disadvantages.

    What is it about cooking that you don't you enjoy? Is it that it takes too much time? Is it that you don't like to shop for the ingredients? Is it that most recipes seem too complicated to bother with?

    I work full time but live alone so cooking is pretty easy for me. However, I also have a fairly restricted diet and eating out isn't an option I can take often so I don't have a lot of choice in whether or not I cook.

    Maybe if you start with making one thing, something you like, and simply double the amount you make. Eat some and freeze the rest. Voila, you have at least one main dish ready for another night later in the week or down the road. I do that at times and it really helps me stay on track!
