I seriously suck at this. I don't understand why, let alone how, someone would spend their time after work cooking meals. I'm happy when I make it to the fridge to pull out the milk for cereal. I've always been the one who wants food asap. I'm not interested in waiting 20 minutes to cook it. It seems like wasted effort and time to do this when there are simple solutions (mac & cheese, cereal, etc). I eat like a poor college student and I would rather spend the time on something different.

Well I've decided that I want to learn how to cook. Clearly it's no surprise that my skills in the kitchen are minimal if any. I really want to change that. I'm always given recipes from people saying it's really quick and simple, but I feel overwhelmed just looking at it. It seems like a lot of work to me! I want to get to a point where I have recipe success and can pull things outta my mind. I want to feel comfortable with adding a few spices that aren't included in the recipe. I want to learn to cook!!

So here's the thing: I want to try out 3 new recipes a week. That's right. I'm going to cook 3 new dishes EVERY week.

First things first.... I need to find a cookbook!

Let's face it: I suck at keeping up with a blog. It baffles my mind that someone can write something interesting everyday. I struggle to update my Facebook status let alone write some awe inspiring narrative about my life. I think that's my problem; I'm wanting everything I say to change lives. Well no wonder I NEVER write anything. Haha.

I know I know... I'm supposed to be training for that marathon. I went for a short jog on Tuesday. Does that count? I'm working on it... give me a break.

I did just recently move so that had taken up a lot of my time. Now I'm in the process of potentially suing my previous landlord (don't ask - long story).

So this is me apologizing for sucking at blogging.

Goals in Life

In no particular order:

- Raise a family

- Travel to Europe

- Run a marathon

- Write a book

- Reach my goal weight

- Learn to cook

- Finish college

- Be debt free

This is just me thinking outloud and needing to post it somewhere I won't lose. haha.
