I have a confession to make/story to tell... I'm super lazy and hate cooking for myself. Fast food is my Achilles heel. 🙈There I said it. I know, and yes, I'm ashamed to admit it. 🙊I don't even enjoy fast food; actually, I hate it 🙄(There's a whole psychology to this issue that goes way deeper than I had planned to get in this light-hearted post. That's a different story). I "oooooo" and "ahhhhhh" and drool over so many healthy, nutrient-packed recipes and take no action. Yep, uh-huh, I'm calling myself out. I have totally slid backwards. So after returning from a vacation full of delicious, thoughtfully-prepared meals, and coming home to decompress and get settled in, I think I got a little too settled. And after struggling in my tired old rut, I finally said enough is enough and made a conscious decision to start participating in life again. Changes will be made (and Erik is feeling the same). I often don't see myself slipping until I'm already pretty stuck. Depression is a sneaky little bastard. I'm ready to get rid of the excess baggage I've been holding onto. I lost 40 pounds a year ago and got comfortable with those results. Now I'm ready to let go of the rest. It's absolutely a metaphor for how I've been living my life, too. I'm afraid of being great, so I stop at good enough. Still protecting myself with the extra padding. It's so obviously a perfect metaphor. Again, more psychology stuff. More work I have to do. And that's a great thing to become aware of. So... yada, yada, yada... I made a different decision today, and I invite you to check out what I did. I'm going to try my best to continue to do this and share in my stories to, not only help me create a healthy habit, but maybe someone else feels the same and needs to see someone trying to break free of tired, old habits that no longer serve them. See how I wing an easy recipe idea I had while trying to finish up food in the house before we go grocery shopping. Check my story for this quick,
