I just realized this past week when I posted my "Healthier Chicken Pot Pie" recipe I had reached a milestone of 100 blog entries since August of 2011. Wow, I can't even imagine how many hours have gone into this labor of love. I hope there has been some interest in my posts and others have enjoyed or perhaps even tried some of the recipes. I started this blog in August, 2011. At the time I wasn't sure of the direction I wanted to take this blog. So this has basically been a work in progress.
I have shared some of the trials and tribulations I have gone through in maintaining a healthy weight. For me emotions have definitely played a role in my weight fluctuations over the years. I struggled with seasonal depression shortly after I moved to the Buffalo area. I have discovered what works best for me is to stay very physically active and this helps me cope. My friends at the Buffalo Athletic Club are wonderful and I love the exercise classes offered. Lately I am taking a break from my favorite Zumba classes as I have suffered an injury to my toe. I am hoping I will be able to enjoy them again very soon. I am relieved it is spring and I am able to take long walks outside which I love. I have been spending time at the gym lifting weights and calisthenics for strength training.
It helps me to share my experiences and I hope this helps others with some of the same struggles. As a busy Mom I can certainly understand the difficulties of finding the time and energy to exercise. Thanks for reading and I hope the year ahead brings you joy and fulfillment.
