That Tastes Different

"Where do you wish to make a difference?", asks Jamie Ridler today for WishCasting Wednesday.

Hmmm. Well, it's 6 1/2 weeks into the new year and I'm still not doing the wonderful meal plans and cooking better/healthier meals for my family that I had planned to. And I'm still struggling with keeping a schedule in order to use my time more efficiently.

I SAY I'm going to do it. But I'm not so big with the follow through.
I mean, there are some good days.
But many days I just feel pathetically ineffectual.

So, "where I wish to make a difference" today, is in sticking to my plans and following through with scheduling meal planning and preparation so that the long term difference will be a healthier me and a healthier family.

I will do it one step at a time by spending one hour today to work on the menu plans and grocery lists.
Tomorrow, I will check my progress and spend at least 30 minutes to pick up where I left off.
I will call a friend today and tell her I am doing this and I will call her tomorrow to tell her of my progress.

She's a good friend .
She will support me.

I love cooking and providing Nourishment for my family.
I love to cook REAL FOOD. (Thanks to BlissChick for this timely post!)

I hope to share some of my recipes and meal plans here.
I hope there are others who have the same aspirations to healthier consumption.
I hope you will join me and perhaps we could support one another in this nourishing endeavour.

Here's to making a difference with good eating!

What a lovely thing to aim for! You have a great plan, I'm sure you will achieve it, and you're family will appreciate it.
As karmacoy wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

As you wish for yourself, Karmacoy, so I lovingly and honestly wish for you as well.

You are not the only one who lacks on the follow through...you do have a good plan...I have faith in you sticking to it.

As Karmacoy wishes for herself, I wish for her also. I think you have a plan that is very sound and that can really work. The first step is often the hardest and it sounds like you are well on your way to where you want to go!! Good luck.

As KarmaCoy wishes for herself, so I wish for her also. Some of your wishes are wishes I could have made today. I will join you in preparing REAL FOOD, I will even post a recipe a week with you to keep myself on track.
May you continue to make a difference where you want.

I am right there with you. I recently went gluten-free, and although I've removed gluten from my diet, I'm still not eating real healthy food. It's time for me to get back on track too.

As karmacoy wishes for herself, so do I wish for her also!!

Good luck with sticking to your plan but remember to be gentle with yourself if you sway from it now and then. :)

Ms. Karmacoy,

I haven't heard from you in a while. Hope you are well and thriving! I recall when you did the Meditation Challenge at my blog and wanted to let you know about something similar: a new online course, Buddha Chick. It might be of interest to your heart:-) xo and blessings...

Ms. Karmacoy,
Just stopping by to say hi. You took my Meditation Challenge in January at my blog and I've just launched something similar, on online course, Buddha Chick™. Thought you might want to know. It's pretty Chickie. :-) With love, Jan
