I think I'm receiving some karmic return for making fun of the "Southerners" around these parts. I keep telling people that I'm tough because I'm a Yank and I grew up with lake effect snows. But... sheesh.... it's cold! I take it back. I'm a wuss!!
My winter running has been really so-so. I get to the trail maybe once a week. It's so cold, I just can't make myself go out in it. For some reason, when running flags, the strength training flags.
I've been mostly on target with eating. I'm having a lot of fun with the low meat diet still. I should start posting recipes that I try here or somewhere. The boyfriend is... trying to be supportive of my dietary choices, but most days he just makes it difficult. He's a chef, and so I often consult him when I'm going to try something new. I value his opinion. I've been tweaking my chili recipe so that it's veggie and he keeps telling me add ground pork. Unhelpful!
Oh well. On top of maintaing/appreciating healthy lifestyle changes (on the body side of things), I've also been trying to actually get my budget to BALANCE. It's rough let me tell you. I joined the SparkGuy's Saving Jar Team, but the plan isn't really working with what I have in place. So, I need to re-evaluate.
This is what life is... isn't it? Constantly re-evaluating. Constant flux. Constant change.
