Being an adult often means that you have like 5 different things you are trying to juggle all at once. Between working, parenting my adult kids, cooking dinner for nieces and nephews on Sundays, hanging out with my friends, trying to keep the house clean.. you know! Things can get busy.

Along with that, there’s the struggle to prioritize cooking healthy food. You think, “Do I have the time to cook this chicken, or should I just grab a handful of cereal?” and “Is it selfish to put time towards prepping my own food?” The answer is YES! you absolutely have time! And NO! it is not selfish to take care of yourself.

These are some things that I have had to learn over the years. Check out my weight loss story if you want to read about all my ups and downs.
