Hi and welcome Peanut Butter and Peppers!
Here’s a little bit of my story.
First I know I’ll have questions over the blog name, so let me tell you, any of you who know me, know that I LOVE Peanut Butter and Peppers on everything! So I thought, lets put those two names together… and here I am. Now of course I wouldn’t eat them together, or would I? Hmm, now that’s food for thought.
As I stated on the home page, I am currently 30 something, a girl has her prerogative not to tell. Anyway, I currently work full-time in a medical device office and in my remaining spare time I like to cook, exercise and spend time with my wonderful family.
My Husband and I:
Little Jenny and I:
On this blog you will see I love to shop whether it’s for food, clothing or shoes. I plan on sharing with you some of my finds, good or bad! You can always share with me some of yours. Oh and you’ll be hearing a lot about Trader Joe’s! Sorry but that’s my 2nd home.
I will also share with you some stories about my two loves. Sampson and Samantha. They are my two Labrador Retrievers. I will usually reference them as my bad babies, my bad boy and my good girl. Here’s a picture of them:
My overall story:
Over the past couple of years I have lost over 30lbs and my goal is to keep the weight off. That’s where you come in. With me telling you my goals and plans, I feel I that will keep me accountable for my actions. You’ll find that I am the kind of person, who says I’m going to do something, I’m going to do it! So you being here, will keep me real and I will be able to keep my promises to myself and to you.
I currently struggle a bit with my food obsession, not so much with eating it, but with counting the calories. I am trying not to count anymore. I’m really trying! I want to enjoy my life and not have it focused around, I ate this so now I need to exercise for this long to burn it off. It’s not about that, I want to enjoy my meals and know that if I eat a piece of cake, I’m not going to gain 10lbs. I think with listening to my stomach and doing my basic exercising I’ll be fine. We need to find balance in life and that is what I am trying to learn.
I must tell you, I just love to cook and make new creations. My philosophy is to find that balance between good and bad food. I truly believe you can have everything in moderation, just make smart choices. You’ll find healthy recipes and not so healthy recipes here. I also try to make the unhealthy ones a little bit more healthy without sacrificing the flavor. I’ll share with you my good recipes and my flops, so you don’t make the same mistake as me.
I hope you enjoy your visit and come back often. You’ll find lots of great recipes, and some step by step instructions. I value your opinion and any input you have, so please let me know if there is anything you want to know about.
