Tonight I made pistachio-crusted salmon and roasted butternut squash. Both were so good. I ate an entire medium-sized squash by myself!
I enjoy cooking for myself lately on the nights when B is at work. I make his and put it in the fridge for when he gets home and then I eat mine by myself. Cooking is soothing and something I really enjoy. I sometimes get anxiety cooking for other people, so it is relaxing to do it for myself. It makes me appreciate my food more. It helps me to be okay with the experience of eating.
After two days of cloudiness and cooler weather, it was sunny again here today. 🙂 I hope it gets even warmer this week. I like it more towards 80* than 70*, but I’ll take both. I am grateful for either!
Man, I fought hard today. I wanted to cleanse my mind, body, and spirit today, and I did it. And I want to continue it through the week and cope positively. I can do this. I want to show myself that I can, and FEEL GOOD.
Last week was rough and I want to reverse that trend and feel good again. I want to feel that I am at my best self.
I want to see both qualitative and quantitative positive change; the latter shown through my records, the former I can just FEEL.
I really like this model for positive change.
Do you like to cook? Do you like to cook for just yourself? What do you like about it?
In what ways do you measure positive change? And how do you personally go about it?
