WOW! It feels like SO LONG since I’ve written! It’s only been two weeks, but it really feels like a lifetime. What have I been up to? A crazy, good time! Sophia graduated Kindergarten! My parents and sister came to visit for a week! We all got the flu! It’s been awesome!
And, dun-duh-duh-dun!!!!! After several weeks of losing .4 lbs or so, I am finally in the 150’s! So glad I didn’t give up, although I did give up trying to turn this picture around…
Mostly, I’ve just been living the life I’ve wanted to be living, which is why it’s been hard to sqeeze in a lot of writing time. Yes, I still have down moments. Sam is NOT sleeping very much! (again, why it’s hard to find time to write) But I’m getting through the melt downs and moving on. Eating healthier and fitting in exercise isn’t always the tastiest or funnest (yes funnest is a word! I’m an English Major!) but I know it makes for a happier Eva in the big picture, so it’s worth it.
I got a great phone call from my sweet mom today who said visiting with me “inspired” her to start eating healthier, walk more often and plant a garden. GO MOM! 🙂 She in return inspired me to hop back on here and share some basic meals I use to keep me healthy and give me time to really live life. For me, a healthy lifestyle is like keeping a clean house. It’s not necessarily the MOST important thing in life. But by staying on top of it I’m FREE TO DO the important things in life.
For the first time the other day I played with my kids and they got worn out before I did! HA!
I’m wearing clothes that two months ago I was going to donate, or even worse had just bought only to get home and find out the size I thought I was was too small. Well, they fit me now!
I know we are saving money by eating-out less and cooking more, as well as having more quality family time.
So, here are some quick, inexpensive meals I cook regularly…
