|Mmmmm, Mt. Dew. |
Lunch of champions.
I want to add a note of caution here. I did not have a eating disorder by any stretch I was just a lazy, busy student so I don't want you to get the wrong idea. I eat....BELIEVE THAT....plenty but not very nutritiously.
Fast forward to marriage, kids and now I'm in this role of "mother" and "stay at home mom", "homemaker" and it falls upon me to keep these people fed. Ughhh. I love reading some of your blogs like Cotter's Crunch, The Hungry Runner and of course Athlete's Plate who all offer these amazing nutritious recipes that sound so delicious but at the same time as I am reading these my eyes start to glaze over and I go into a catatonic state thinking "that just sounds exhausting" and they do these productions every day? Wow. I'm impressed. Really I am. Cooking is not my happy place and unfortunately it isn't Travis's happy place either. If he comes home from work and their isn't anything on the table he looks at me and says "So are we eating out?" To which I reply "YouBETCHA!" and we're off. Luckily he is a mellow husband and contrary to what people think about stay at home moms he doesn't expect me to be barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen at all times. On the contrary I'm usually wearing shoes and I'm at the mall. I like to eat yummy food just not make it all the time.
So Anyway, to make a long story longer. I was reading Sean's blog over at In Clean Air--A running philosophy and he had just been featured on The Athlete's Plate. If you don't read Sean's blog you really should. He is like that "voice of reason" that God forgot to give me. Just cool, calm and collected. His posts area always positive, uplifting and motivating and I was nominated by him for
How perfect is this? Talk about someone who needs serious help in the menu department. One of my MAJOR goals this year is to try to eat healthier in order to have more energy and lose about 10 pounds. I'm within the "normal" weight range for my height but we all know how those weight ranges work. There is a range of about 20 lbs and right now I'm closer to the high part and would rather be closer to the low part. Plus I think if I can lose the weight it could help me get faster and eating better will help me have more energy.
