Well, not really. But I am being challenged today.
WARNING: Do not read on if you might develop a craving for baked goods.
And if you do read on, and develop this craving, I highly recommend www.eftuniverse.com to rid yourself of the craving!
My sisters and I have been typing up our mom's recipes. Today, I've been merging all the files together, organizing recipes by category, etc.
I had NO idea that typing recipes would make me so hungry! At times I have to fight the urge to go bake one of these delicious cakes and eat it....
However, so far, so good. I stop every 45-60 minutes, stretch, drink water, eat a few nuts or raisins, or some celery sticks. And I'm able to carry on!
I've finished merging and editting quick breads, cakes and desserts. Next up... cookies!
And I observe that most of the recipes we have from mom are for sweets of some sort. Hmmm... what's wrong with this picture?
Still, in the final scenario, it will be nice to have mom's recipes all in one place. For you see, her recipe book was lost years ago (when my parents moved). This will be a special keepsake not only for my parents and siblings, but also for our children and future generations of our family!
So, with that in mind, I carry on typing & editting.....and snacking healthy foods!

...today would be a day I'd do just that.
Started working on the bookkeeping for the year (only 6 months behind). I started with the 'easy' things to track... and have been off on goose chases finding the right papers. LOL!
But, hey, I'm eating really well today, and have already downed 5 glasses of water and 1 more cup of liquid in my lunch time soup! I feel good! I'm going to go outside for a quick walk in the sunshine and then I'm going back to the paper puzzling!
Have a happy Tuesday, everyone!!

Well, I've gone and done it... eaten too many Hallowe'en chocolate bars. I had 3 yesterday, and 5 today. I'm going on record here to say... that's it, no more. I do NOT want to regain the weight I've worked so hard to lose!
On a positive note... DH and I had a great walk around the labyrinth yesterday. It's the most beautiful one I've seen, ever. And this is in fall, when most of the flowers are done. I plan to go back next spring and summer to see it in all it's 'bloomin' glory!
Another positive... DH has now watched the first episode of Medium and likes it! That works great for me... I get to watch the shows again, and while he's on the treadmill, I'm doing the LS workout beside him. Ahhhh... cardio togetherness!! How romantic! LOL!!!
This morning I did 30 minutes of LS workout while playing some rockin' good tunes on my iPod. This afternoon, DH and I will do 40 minutes more while watching Medium! So, TAKE THAT chocolate bars! You are so goin' down and out!!! LOL!!!
Happy Hallowe'en, everyone!

I've been branching out in my cardio workouts lately. This morning I watched a travelog video from the library (free!) while doing LS workout. Recently I've watched 2 videos on sustainable living (one on eating organically, the other on becoming a more earth friendly consumer).
A change is as good as a rest ... as the saying goes. I don't even notice the time doing cardio .. I get so interested in the videos!!

Had to make squares for the church (funeral luncheon). They are made, I've sampled them (delicious) and I have tried to deliver them... but the woman isn't home right now! Good thing they are sealed shut, and good thing they have to go elsewhere!
Aqua Flares you say? Well, was trying to rhyme with squares! Yesterday I filled in the gouges left behind on the laundry room's aqua walls when the new cupboards were installed. Today I'm touch up painting... flares of aqua. A picky joy that has been hanging around and bugging me for a while now. Feels good to have it done!!
It seems like these little, picky jobs cause me to procrastinate. I must remember to do my best to clear my life of them as they appear... I feel so much better when they're done!
