I’ve been asked a couple of times in the past month or so why I stopped writing my blog. And the truth is, I got a little lost. I fell into a bad habit of bad eating and I figured it was ok because I was training for a marathon and I needed the extra bit of sugar and those extra carbs…
Sadly, my body doesn’t work like a regular athlete and my age doesn’t help either…all those extra carbs and little bits of sugar here and there have caught up with me.
I have a little tyre around my waist. My skin and hair are dry. My body is sluggish and my constant shoulder pain is increasing. All of this is due to bad diet.
I also fell out of love with cooking. With both my husband and I training hard, I didn’t have the time to cook like I used to…. at least that was my excuse. But with better planning and time management it can be done.
And so, after a blissful week away, just hubby and I and a motorhome, I’ve found my passion for cooking again. I’ve found my spark. And luckily, I found my blog password!!
I am back, for now… but I know myself and I know that the moment this blog feels like a chore, I’ll push it aside and forget about it. So I won’t be putting pressure on myself like last time. I will post meals as and when I feel they deserve to be seen by others. When I am truly happy with them and I am confident that they live up to the standard of healthiness that I am searching for (I am by no means an expert in this area, I just know, through trial and error, what works for me). My biggest problem is that I usually don’t cook from recipe books. I cook out of my head. And so if a meal comes out great, the pressure is on to try and remember what I did because I never cook the same meal twice….
I do have one or two meals from recipe books that I absolutely love and I’ll definitely be sharing those along the way too.
But for now, that’s all I have for you. No recipe to share at this point in time. Althought I do have a meal in the oven and if it’s delicious, I’ll post it for you.
