I can't believe it's been 4 weeks since we started the bento challenge!~ That also means its been about 4 weeks since the New Year beagan, and I have to say I'm a bit slow at reaching my goals. That I've been invigorated by the bento challenge is an understatement, it fits in nicely with all of my goals for the coming year...to lose weight, and get fitter, to eat mostly homecooked food, and save money; to enjoy what I eat and crave less junk and to be creative. I'm also able to admit that I am a procrastinator. But the truth is I put everyone else first and myself last. Now when it comes to my Sun most times it's not out of line with any other mother. Also I admit that I've been preoccupied by caregiving for the last 10 years taking care of my progressively ill mother. And I am still greiving her loss and a bit at loose ends in general. But for the most part I really consider this a study in self care and rejuvenation. (Of course with a bit of showing off in the kitchen). I appreciate my forum mates for allowing me to express myself.
