If you’ve ever felt like the only way you can get everything done in one day is by working 12 hours a day and living on a diet of frozen pizzas, diet soda and coffee, you’re not alone. I felt that way for years and my health suffered for it. I was forty pounds overweight, sick, tired and fed up with everything. My house was a mess, my husband forgot what I looked like when I wasn’t wearing sweat pants and I couldn’t remember the last time I spent time with the kids.
Fast forward several years and I’ve got it (mostly) under control. Back at goal weight, I rarely turn to processed foods and try to create meals that use healthy, whole foods. I have found a routine that works for me and my family that lets me get done everything I need to get done without neglecting myself or anyone else. Confessions of an Overworked Mom is the result of my journey toward a more healthy, eco-friendly lifestyle.
I’m the mom of two “young adults.” My son is 22 and just got his own apartment with his fiance. He’s always had a flare for style and is currently a cook in a local nursing home. My daughter is 26 and just got married in 2019. She has a degree in theater design and manages the floral department in a local shop. Now that they are on their own, my husband and I are enjoying our empty nest.
Don’t worry, you won’t find any recipes that have 15 complicated steps or crafts that take you two months to complete. I know you probably don’t have any more spare time in your day than I do. I will share healthy recipes, easy crafts & DIY projects and tips and tricks that get me through my busy days. I still drink way too much coffee and am addicted to technology but I’ve got the rest under control most of the time.
