Are we done yet? That is mostly how I felt about the meal plan this week. My husband was traveling for the third week in a row, and I didn't feel like cooking very much. My meals were a little on the unbalanced side, and I ate way too many carbs, and not enough salads and veggies. Not to mention the bag of Reese's peanut butter cups that was on clearance after Easter. Why did I even buy it? Ugh!
The longer I do this, the more I realize I don't really enjoy cooking. I wish I loved to cook as much as PW, but the fact is, I don't. I've tried, but I don't know what I'm missing. It's just something that I'm not passionate about. And unfortunately, if I don't cook, we go out to eat. Dear hubby is not much of a chef. Something about the smoke alarm as a dinner bell isn't very appetizing, but I do appreciate his effort, and don't complain about the blackened crusts on everything. (Or the tuna salad with 2 tablespoons of celery seeds that he surprised me with by making one day.)
I am going to reach out to all 5 of my readers today for some help in the kitchen. How do you plan your meals? Daily? Weekly? At 5:00 when it's time for dinner? (That would be me!) Do you love to cook? Or hate it? Have you always loved it, or did you learn to love it? What do you enjoy about cooking? Did you luck out and marry a professional chef? What can I do to find the passion? Help me please! Any tips would be much appreciated by me and my waistline.
Speaking of waistline, I gained a little weight this week (thanks, Reese's!), so now I have my work cut out for me for our final week on the program. Final weigh in and pics are coming up at the end of the week. Guess I better get my hiney in gear!
Have a great day!
