Fuel The Fire Of Motivation... And Have A Home Cooked Meal


The New Year is finally upon us, which means that plenty of people have resolutions to achieve during the year. Of course, one of the most common goals during this time is getting healthier. And, on of the best ways to do that is through eating meals that you control and cook yourself. But, when it comes to the third night in, it’s easy to slip into bad habits again. So, to help you out, this post will give you some ways to stir up your motivation in the kitchen.

  • Cook New Foods

One of the best things about cooking is the act of doing it. But, when cooking the same meals all the time, it can be easy to get bored. So, you need to liven things up a little bit. You just need to find some new recipes. Thankfully, there are loads of website dedicated to helping people find fresh and new recipes. You can also get some great apps on your phone. All of these tools have examples that allow you to choose a difficulty level for the meal. This gives you the chance to try recipes that won’t be too difficult but will be challenging enough to be fun. Ultimately, being excited to try new things can drive you to great success; you just need to do some leg work.

  • Get Some Fancy Tools

There’s nothing more demotivating that having to struggle with blunt knives or pans. The easier your tools are to use; the more you will want to use them. So, this means spending a little bit of money. But, it’s best to do some research first. Items like knives and pans come in many different varieties. You need to do some research before buying them, or you may find that you get something that doesn’t suit you. Youtube is a great place to look for reviews, but you may have to go to specialist sites for recommendations. Try some Googling or check my reference, and you’ll get loads of information to help you out. These items can be very expensive; it’s best to look for quality and value over prestige.

  • Create A Meal Schedule

Deciding to get a takeaway is usually an impulse move. This sort of action can be hard to combat, but not impossible. With clever planning, you can make it much harder to justify eating out. Plan the meals that you are going to be eating for a week out, and make sure that all of the food excites you. Buy all of the ingredients you can ahead of time. This will give you a reason to stay home and eat, as you already have the food available. It will also make choosing what to eat much easier, lessening the struggle and eventual fall to the takeaway.

Hopefully, this will inspire you to get in the kitchen and uphold those New Year's promises that you’ve made. Finding motivation to eat well can be hard. So, it can be best to ditch motivation altogether and just be hard on yourself. But, it’s worth doing something to help.

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat! What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!


While shifting to your dream house, you may face a mountain of pre-move work, including downsizing, packing, hiring moving trucks, and other help. When you already have a list full of tasks, home improvements for the new house might be the last thing. However, handling the new house renovation before moving in is convenient for you in many ways. Planning home improvement is exciting and stressful both. If you are moving to a house that is not entirely ready, you have massive things to do. To make things smooth, create a list based on priorities.
