Been Gone

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Wow, I have been gone over a year! A lot has happened in the past year. We moved from Indiana to Colorado, our son and his family moved in with us, and I have been eating terribly. They are moving out soon, and then I have to get serious again. I hate figuring out dinners for 7 people! I am so looking forward to my empty nest again!!!

    Welcome back and thanks for making me one of your spark friends.

    As a mother of 8, I know the issues with preparing meals for so many. "Cheap" or affordable means that you have to work hard with the meats you can actually afford in bulk. Then, it is the rest of the meal--and making it healthy and tasty so it gets eaten is the rest of the problem. We are doing fairly well with it, but it is a constant battle--and of course, some of my kids think that you can only get "real food" at fast food restaurants.

    You will get things back into your control--just take the baby steps you need to nudge yourself there. Trying to do too much at once can be a problem and can cause us to lose our way.

    Best wishes--and welcome!!

    Thank you for the welcome backs! I won't be too lonely, they are moving 50 miles away, which is close enough to see, but far enough not to see every day!!!

    I do better when I only have to cook for my husband and myself. With our son and his family here, I cook cheap which = too many carbs and junk!

    Glad you decided to come back! Life can get pretty hectic just remember to set aside each day for yourself otherwise you will go crazy.

    The empty nest comes with both blessings and the occasional loneliness. I can imagine you are looking forward to it though - I know that my greatest successes with healthy lifestyle came when I was living alone and did not have to deal with anyone else in my kitchen unless I invited them in.
