Our gym membership is coming to an end this month so Bradley and I decided we should take full advantage of our last couple weeks and really focus on a healthy lifestyle. Uuugh eating healthy... *Cringe* We've done a really good job since our New Year's Resolution to work out and be more active...unfortunately with the birth of this blog our eating hasn't been the healthiest. I mean let's just be honest, I've made a lot of desserts. My favorite foods are chocolate and sugar...sigh. Granted I do try only to fix them when other people can eat them but they are just soooo gooood.
Anyway, what this means is I feel like I'm starting all over again trying to figure out what to make for dinner. I am not a very good cook in general, and to try and be a healthy cook is overwhelming and...well...rather depressing. I've reverted back to my old cooking style which is chicken on a George Foreman...GAG ME! It really puts me in a bad mood. Because of that, my blog posts have been sparse, and I'm still saving one yummy recipe I cooked with Lora to post when salads and chicken have all but brought me to tears.
I'm not going to give up though! Cooking (and cleaning up after my messes) is something I'll have to do my whole life (blah) and I have to get better. Right? Surely. I did do some searching for healthy recipes that I'm going to try. I'll have to make a grocery store run to get all the ingredients...lots and lots of ingredients.
Oh one thing I do have to say...these "healthy bloggers" are crazy! They wake up and run a thousand miles, eat nothing but vegetables and make it sound fun to drink a spinach smoothie. I actually did want to try the spinach smoothie but my blender is packed and Bradley said no to my new "healthy" breakfast. Oh well, in a few weeks I'll try that. :-)
Healthy meal or snack ideas would be much appreciated! Really anything that doesn't involve chicken on the George Foreman.
