the healthy eating wagon that is. It seems Easter has thrown me off track. I do fine until evening and then the cereal calls my name. Well, I’m not listening tonight! I got on the scale (GULP!) and it was not pretty, I’m looking at a pretty huge gain from 2 weeks ago. However, I put on my big girl panties and sucked it up and am moving on. I need to stop undoing all my progress and get my head back in the game. I’m going to my meeting, logging in my weight and moving on with life. It’s a new week for me and I feel a sense of calm and renewal.
This morning I did some elliptical work and then the treadmill. I did some running FAST, jogging and incline work. I was a stinky mess afterwards so that must count for something! LOL
DH is working today on putting stone on our friend’s house so I have the house to myself. Miraculously nothing needs to get done. I’m caught up on laundry, the house ISN’T a disaster area and the dishes are done. I’ve been working on organizing my recipes that I have, but I ran out of recipe cards yesterday afternoon so I really need to get some more. I’m tossing out recipes that are really old and I haven’t used in a few years or they have ingredients I don’t use anymore (splenda, bran buds, etc.). I’m also putting in the new recipes I’ve been trying out that are keepers. Currently I have 2 binders almost bursting with recipes. One contains just desserts: muffins, breads, cookies, bars, cakes, pancakes, buscuits, etc. The other one has in the entrees, side dishes, egg dishes, etc. I hope by weeding out the useless recipes I won’t have to expand into a 3rd binder.
I’m also hoping that Friday afternoon I get get some work done in my garden. I still have chicken wire to put up and I want to get some raking and hand tilling done. I’d really like to go to Jung’s on the Saturday before Mother’s Day to get my seeds and cool season plants bought.
I’m really hoping to make May a much better month for me. Once the weather becomes nice I can garden, walk after supper and just be outside more. Winter makes me feel like a recluse sometimes.
