I always felt I should make elaborate meals. And then… I would get so stressed and upset when Henry wouldn’t eat them. I grew up eating 3 sit-down meals a day, 3 complete meals with protein, starch/carbohydrates and vegetables. Sometimes a dessert and fruit too. So, this is how I tried to handle food in our house for 2 years. HOWEVER, I stressed so much over how I ‘should’ be cooking that I HATED cooking. HATED the kitchen. HATED shopping for us. HATED planning meals. HATED anything to do with food. I was wasting time and energy AND money trying to keep up with the cooking and planning. Who is with me on this?
As a new direction for my blog, we are starting to talk about simplifying our lives. So, this week, in connection with a Facebook event I am doing, we are talking about ways to simplify our health. I am not a gym person, I get really intimidated by it! Seriously, like, curled up in a ball in the corner, completely overwhelmed by seeing so many gym enthusiast in one location. All I am trying to do is take little steps, and I don’t want to feel that my little efforts are not enough. Is anyone else like this or am I the only one? BUT, here’s the the thing – I do know that my health is important to decreasing stress and maintaining focus. So how do I keep a calm mindset about my health?
