Managing Weight & Loving Food

Like so many of you, I absolutely love food. For me, good food is anything with loads of flavour and if it has some extra spicy heat, then I’m even happier. One of my favourite things to do in life is to cook and eat, and to go out and eat. There are times though when I just feel unhealthy, not because of what I eat but rather because of how much I eat. An example you might be able to resonate with is at Christmas time. For me Christmas style indulging can happen at various times in a year and more often than they probably should. There are times I look in the mirror or simply just get dressed and can see and feel the added weight that has piled on and I feel depressed. If you are like me, what do you do? Advertisements

Thought of the Day

Be thankful for the little things in life. There are so many things we just don’t think about – waking up in the morning, our interactions with our loved ones, having water, etc. Remind yourself to be grateful. – #adaptandbe Comment – Like – Subscribe Yours in Adapting & Being

Never Underestimate the Value of Teamwork

The last few days have been more manic than usual in both my personal and professional life. Due to work commitments over the past week, I found myself having to travel around five hours a day to get to and from where I needed to be in order to get my job done. This is an exception for me and not a usual thing. Early mornings and late nights impacted my responsibilities as a mother more than anything. Whilst this week was unusual for me, I do also know it’s the daily life of many. The result is getting behind on everything, especially laundry, which is okay until your son goes “mom it’s Friday and I need a clean shirt”. Your children have been less than productive with homework and studying for tests, but then again their overall responsibility has taken a brief descent due to mom not being around. Routines are completely out the window because dad is abroad. However, the purpose of this post is not to whine about me and my family’s disruptive week with too little hours in the day for me personally, but to focus on the critical importance of teamwork.
