Mamavation Monday

I am still struggling to find me time and every day busy pushed me into the “just getting by” state. Yep, that means “It’s just a piece of cake” mentality is back.

I still eat good food – whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and protein most of the day

I munch a piece of white sweet bread (it’s called PASKA and somewhat close to the pound cake) multiple times a day (to say the least)
There is no workout in my life AT ALL

I feel like I am failing and not just myself. I have been reviewing a fitness/nutritional program and it is very good, but my personal stupidity is not making me a good example. I can continue pounding myself with haze, but it is just not changing anything – I am almost becoming immune to it.

I volunteered to lead (along with other amazing sistas) Nutrition and Fitness Forums

I made an attempt last week to do cook to freeze thing using Once a Month Mom’s plan.
I did the mini version with 10 days worth of meals. It took me a whole evening on Friday, but I made 5 meals and froze most of them.

Here is what I think about it

I hope that would let me organize myself better if I don’t have to spend much time in the kitchen – I still have to make salads and snacks, but that should not take as much time

Most dishes I made had noodles. I understand that pasta freezes well, but that is way too much pasta for 1 week in a half worth of food

Since this was my first time, I just followed the recipes, but want to think more about it as I consume the food I made



  1. Don’t beat yourself up too much. We all fall off the wagon sometime, just get back on there and try to find something to motivate you to eat better – working on the Nutrition forums should help. I totally hear you, I am going through fitting back a sweet tooth!

    Your always such an inspiration to me, and soo supportive. We all have our times when were not on top of our game, but its a process and every day is new!
    I love that you started the prepared meals before me (haha) so I can learn by your trial and error. I know that is one area that is a complete FAIL for me and I am definitely going to do my best to make it a priority.

    It’s been way too long since I’ve been on your blog, but I LOVE the new design. Very snazzy. :-)

    You are amazing and life happens, failure is not in your vocabulary! Glad to hear that you were able to try the freezer meals, it’s been on my list to try for a while now. Do you have a separate freezer?

      Laila, I am so happy you stopped by. If I ever attempted the real 30 days ahead cooking, I would have to move some stuff to MIL’s house. She does have a freezer. I just have a narrow freezer side by side with fridge. Two my surprise 8 meals only took one tiny shelf in the freezer

  4. Don’t be yourself up. You’re doing fine. Just get back on track and you’ll feel better.

  5. I also wanna try the meals for a week or month. Please let me know how that goes!! Great organization on getting all your ducks in a row.
