Relief but Reality....

Okay, so i'm back to where I was before vacation time....I always need that BIG dose of reality to kick my ass and keep it there but it waivers when i'm away from my regular routine.

You would think that after almost 11 months of the same routine that I would "get it" but I don't know why I do this to myself. I am riddled with guilt, I purposely torture and ridicle myself for not being more diligent ~ not a great feeling let me tell ya.

On a positive note I pulled out my Cooking Light cookbook which has a whole years worth of receipes in it; I highlighted recipes that were realitively easy to cook/prepare and that my family would enjoy.

We all need to tighten our belts, even though I don't make pasta/rice/bread dishes anymore I find that I am making the same old boring not exactly figure friendly dishes...no MORE! I bought 2 weeks worth of groceries to jumpstart us towards healthier living.

On the menu tonight was homemade beef and barley soup, homemade simple white bread and homemade fudgy mocha toffee brownies. It went well, everyone seemed happy and I am motivated to do more!
