Work in Progress

We are all a work in progress, aren't we? Some of us are farther than others on this life journey, but we are all working towards something. Two major areas of my life that are learning areas for me are cooking and exercising. I have set out to learn to cook meals that are healthier with the hopes of getting some tasty recipe staples. I find that I pour so much time looking at blogs for ideas and visiting websites, going through cook books and flagging different recipes that might sound appealing. What is even more challenging about this is what I make is for myself and a toddler. Sometimes I will spend so much time making something, having no idea how he will respond. It is really hit or miss with him. Yesterday I tried Macki's Famous Chicken & Dumplings from We will see what Caleb thinks! I have been working on this cooking thing for while now. Cooking doesnt come naturally to me like it does for some people. However, it is something that I enjoy and continue to work at.

The second area I mentioned needing to work on is excersize. I know there are a lot of people who value fitness, but I have never been one of them. I know how important excersize is, and I truly want to incorporate this into my life now. I just come from a background of having no knoweldge of what to do. I don't have time do work out until after Caleb goes to bed because I am up at 6am and gone until 5:30pm. By the time we get home, I am doing dinner, bath, and bed. 8pm is the only free time I have to do what I need to do. I just have no experience in what it is that I could do fitness wise during that time. So this area is definitely suffering the most. I am hoping to report back with some improvements soon!
