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!
