Well it’s been a while since I’ve written! I have really messed up! Gained back lots of weight, moved to another state….again and we are going through a rough patch in life. That’s where I’m at right now. Happy that I’m saved and praying that God will help with all the stuff around us!
My prayer is that I can get to a gym start lifting weights and get on a good way of eating. What is hard right now is that, well most people won’t understand this unless they’ve been there but food can get expensive! More namely vegetables. I’d love to be able to afford to put veggies on the plate not only once a day but several times a day! I believe that eating good means having a plate that is filled with vegetables and a palm size serving of meat. For the kids I would add brown rice or sweet potatoes. However, that isn’t possible right now. Do you know how expensive fresh vegetables are?!!! It’s no wonder we have a growing fat epidemic! Do you know what’s served at food pantries?! Processed boxed or canned foods. Yes Food pantries are a blessing to many but the foods have to be shelf stable for long periods of time. This is terrible. Not only do the poor get poorer, but nutritionally are more deficient now too. They don’t have better options. Do you know what the cheapest foods are to feed a large family? I do. Oats, eggs and rice. Those are the healthiest food items that I can come up with that doesn’t leave you starving after you’ve eaten them. So, for now we continue praying that my husband will get a better job so we can not only live better, but eat better.
