Wow. This is the first time I’ve logged in since January 28th, and the only reason is because I decided not to prep dinner tonight or get groceries; thank goodness for my mother-in-law’s frozen chicken soup.
The last 4 months has flown by, but it’s so fun taking care of both my boys. Jack is 3 now, and Max is almost 1! I’ve decided to look after both of them by myself with no help for the summer. Yeah I know. I’m sure I’ll have hard days, but I think it’s going to be great. We live in an awesome, kid-friendly neighbourhood with so many resources at my fingertips. I’m looking at it as my last hoorah before focusing on work again in the fall. I’m not sure what I want to do yet, but I have some ideas and am excited at the thought of having some time to myself to focus on nutrition again.
It’s crazy being a full-time mom because I know my other brain is in there (my work brain), but it’s really dusty and out of practice. Here are some of my ideas for the fall…
- Start filming more cooking videos for my blog and recipe development
- Read Intuitive Eating and decide if I want to register for the Intuitive Eating coaching course
- Go to Toastmasters to get better at public speaking
- Start doing workshops again with hopefully something interesting to say that I’m passionate about
It’s really hard as a woman to put 100% of yourself into raising your kids and your career. It’s not impossible, but it’s hard. I read a quote by C.S. Lewis the other day that gets me through the hard days when I miss my job: “Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work.”
Just wanted to check in, and let you all know that I am coming back 🙂 Have a great summer everyone!
