I am still in my pajamas and I haven’t showered since Friday morning before work. Yes, it’s kind of gross, but y’know, some weekends, it’s kind of nice to be a complete slug. I did the grocery shopping yesterday, did some organizational stuff on the blog, and weaseled out on dinner. I did not make the Spicy Mexican Pie as was my intention…Instead I made pancakes, with some help from the bambino. They were good. Had I not already decided on tonight’s meal, I’d just make it tonight. However, for once, I’m going to stick to my menu, and I’ll use that recipe another time.
Wow. Talk about DELICIOUS! I broke out my juicer as well. I had some strawberries that needed to be used up, and I was craving citrus, so I tossed a couple grapefruit in with some oranges.
I’ve got the laundry mostly done. The last two loads are in process–One’s drying & whenever that’s finished, I’ll switch the other over. In the meantime, I’ve been looking through that stack of magazines Diana let me borrow, and picked out a few recipes I either need to copy or photocopy. One of these days, I’m probably going to need another recipe binder. I got new printer ink with some of my bonus check, and have already printed out a bunch of recipes that I’ve had waiting in the wings, so to speak.
I made the decision this morning that we aren’t eating out any more–Unless it’s during a trip to Sioux Falls, or a special occasion. I’m also going to try to buy healthier snacks, and avoid the vending machine at work. And I’m going to go back to tracking what I eat, with the intent of eating better. My health assessment gave me quite a kick in the butt, and I’ve spent the past week wallowing in self-pity. Enough is enough. I didn’t pack on an extra 30 pounds overnight. I won’t take it off overnight. But if I don’t start now, I won’t ever take it off. I’ve had a FitDay account for years now, and used it off & on. When I use it, it works–Kind of like one of the basic ideas in Weight Watchers–“If you bite it, write it.” I’ll spend the next 2 weeks working on getting used to writing what I eat & tracking my calories. Then I’ll work on adding in exercise. I’m hoping that in spring, if/when this stupid snow ever melts, I can start running again, which should help, too. And maybe I’ll actually complete a 5 K at some point this year!
