I have been wanting the book "Clean Start" as well as "Crazy Sexy Diet" for some time now and yesterday, I sucked it up and bought them. I was thinking about trying a new recipe from "Clean Start", but I didn't have enough ingredients in the house. So I went to the web and found a blog:(http://www.nomeatathlete.com/clean-food/ ) with a recipe for millet and black bean burgers only to find out that the recipe was from "Clean Food" another cookbook by Terry Walters, the same author as "Clean Start" which I already own. I bit the bullet and tried a new recipe for my family which the kids hated but me and my husband loved. The amazing thing is that in the past, I haven't been all the impressed with millet recipes. The last two recipes I've made have been from this "Clean Food" cookbook and I have loved both of them. I am psyched because millet is really cheap, and I can enjoy some healthy food. I only wish that my kids would be better eaters. I am really looking forward to trying out more recipes in my new books and
My newest thoughts have some from a few comments that people have left regarding different posts that I have done. One of my postive qualities, yet one of my worst qualities is that when I get a thought in my head I totally dive right in full force and expect that everything is going to go just the way I want it to because I am so resolved about some idea. Well, it is one of my worst qualities because when things don't go as planned, for whatever reason, I tend to back off. A lot of time I want to make one huge change instead of multiple changes with the end result being the big change that I ultimately want. I hae decided to go slow and make all the changes that I want to make on more of a smaller scale or at least over a period of time so that I can maintain the really important changes that I want to make. I also think that I need to give myself permission to fail, but not give up. Again, I don't like failure, but like I said, I also tend to dive in head first instead of just dipping my toe in and going slow so that I will be less likely to fail!
It's funny, I sometimes think that blogging is really not all that I thought it would be. I don't have all the followers that some blogs have. Granted, I tend not to be able to be as active with other blogs as I would like, and that may be the reason for my lack of followers. My lack of followers may also be because what I am writing about is on little to no interest to others, but I am slowly realizing that those that follow and comment have really helped me with some of the issues I am having. So, thank you to all who read, and I really thank those that comment since the things that you write have really helped me.
