I have been really trying to be good with what I eat.  Some days are really good and some days are horrible.  Yesterday, I started to feel pretty miserable.  I went to bed with a slight fever and slept horrible!  Today I pretty much ate whatever I could find that was already cooked for me and my family.  I left my husband, who was stuck snowblowing all day, alone to cook and feed the kids while I went to work.  I brought some apples and some grapes and ate most of them, but it took my 3 hour shift to get that down.  I did get some chicken from the cafe, but ate maybe 1/4 of the plate.  My goal is to start to be more faithful to eating well.  I know that when I eat well, I feel better.  Why I can't remember that jsut because something tastes good initially, doesn't always mean that I will feel great later.  When I eat things I know are bad for me, that initial feeling often over rides the knowledge that I will feel miserable later on or even the next day.  Sometimes I think that the fact that it isn't an immediate bad feeling makes it more difficult to remember that it is the certain foods that I eat that do me in.  I have spent a bunch of time researching different recipes.  I hate to say that I think I may be cooking a little different for me than I do for the rest of the family, but that often goes with food allergies/intolerances I think.  Hopefully, if I can get to bed and get a good nights sleep, I will feel better and have more energy to plan the healthy foods that I should be eating.

On the crafting front, I am in the middle of a knit placemat knit along.  Surprisingly I am almost up to day with the rows.  The next thing that I need to work on is my apron swap.  I am hoping that I ca get some time in tomorrow while the kids sleep/have quiet time.  I am really excited about the material that I got and can't wait to get started on it.  I also have a few tuck-ins to work on.  I am also working on a shamrock dishcloth as a travel project.  I definitely need to make sure that I always have a travel project with me so that I can take advantage of precious valuable down time!

Any good healthy food apps for an ipad that people know of?  Vegan, gluten free,maybe even raw would be awesome!
