I JUST KEEP COMING BACK!

Wow, it has been a while. I have been busy with life. I have been playing mommy over here and wife and daughter and have been on a weight loss journey that is like a roller coaster ride with me. When I first started this blog I wanted it to be about my cooking, but I cook everyday and it seems like all day sometimes and it takes so much work to write down the recipes and make sure that I have the measurements and timing down right. I cook at home with a scale and all but sometimes I don't measure and I find that cooking to fit my families taste is easy to do without all the measurements cause in my home I'm a damn short order cook sometimes. I have a daughter who don't eat meat ( only sometimes) and then I have my husband who use to eat only fast food and frozen pizza (don't ask me how he got that way cause you already know the answer, he came to me like that). These two are my nightmare diners, I must always figure out an alternative meal for them. Don't get me wrong they have their days were they are willing to eat what I cook that day. usually that is the day that I make a fast food style meal.Yup, since moving out here from Chicago and they don't have all the lovely corner fast food places that we like I have had to learn how to make them meals, and I have gotten pretty good at it if I do say so myself.

With all the cooking that I have been doing to make more fast food style meals I have had to push myself to workout more. I started my journey in 2012 and I lost a few pounds doing P90X with a modified diet plan from my specialist but it was not motivating me to get up everyday and do it so I found myself at the end of my 90 days adding in an extra week with no rest days to complete the program. I'm not saying it's a bad program but it's not for me. So then I moved on to trying out Turbofire and I immediately fell in love. It's upbeat and so positive and motivating. After I complete my workout I can't wait until the next day. I have never done a workout that makes me sweat and lay on the floor but have me begging for more. I have missed a couple days but it's not because I am feeling lazy and don't really want to do it this time it's because I be so busy that by the time I get to sit down from my day I be snoring and then there goes my workout. I use to live a pretty calm and quiet life but it seems that the more kids I had the less calm and quite I have become. I am always up and moving and I find myself praying for a moments break sometimes.

School is now back in session so that means that I have to play teacher to my 2yr old and my now 8mth old and tutor to my 13yr old and 9yr old. This year is starting off great we have been having some fun with some sensory bins and writing exercises and I have a lot more fun things planned for them this year. I enjoy spending time with my girls and learning with them while teaching them.

My family is my inspiration and what drives me to be better at anything I do. They also have shown me that there are many sides to me and each side is wonderful in it's own way. So I don't know what I am going to blog about, I might blog about my cooking, my kids, projects or just anything in my life in general. I can't promise one post a week which is what I wanted to do in the beginning , but I can promise to come back and post.
