At the end of last year, I was dealing with some anxiety issues that had me in no mood to be creative. That put me in a pickle when it was nearing my deadline date for Power Play. So the last few weeks were very stressful, and I fell off the healthy eating wagon hard. Lots of ordering out because I was sitting behind the computer from ten in the morning to four in the morning.
And I found Nerds Jellybeans...
Once Power Play went to my editor, my deadline was quickly approaching, so I was still stressed (and a bit relieved) that I had no interest in trying to cook. So, we ordered out some more. It was just so easy to be lazy. But (this is something I don't think I have ever said) I am tired of fast food right now.
So, I have made our menu for the next 10 days. Now to grocery shop. I need to get back at it sooner rather than later.
Do you know how hard it is to healthy shop when you don't have the time to spend in the kitchen?
I won't fully relax until Power Play is uploaded, but I can't keep eating like this, lol. So hope my family is ready for lots of slow cooker chicken meals over the next week and a half!
It's been a rough few months, but, so far, Power Play is on schedule to drop on April 10th.
I'm a firm believer in "every mean is a new opportunity to start over". So this is not me giving up. This is me starting over.
And next week I will be back on my M-F healthy eating, then weekends off. (And I say next week, because this weekend we are cooking all our meals. We ordered out enough this week!)
Time to hide the Nerds Jellybeans!
