A new beginning
Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Well, it is day 2 of back on track and I am doing great. We did more today than we have in the last 2 weeks. The condo is cleaned, the laundry done, garbage out, grocery shopped and put away and most of all exercise done too!!
I also managed to squeeze in a nap, lol. It really tuckered me out. I don't usually mind doing laundry when I am home as I have a machine in the house but here I have to use the laundrimat and it means packing up the clothes and taking them on a 15 minute trip, sitting there while they wash and dry and then packing them up to come home. It's not hard work, it's just boring and time consuming. But it's done now and I'm happy about that.
Todays trip to the grocery store netted a bottle of sugarfree peppermint holiday coffeemate that was marked down to $1.49 for the quart. Dumb me, I only bought one because I'm not crazy about peppermint except in chocolate but when I got home and tried this, I could kick myself for not getting more. It was absolutely delicious!! We also got a huge loaf of Italian bread for .49 and I know I should be eating wheat but my husband has high potassium and can't have wheat anything. So I am giving in and just watching my portion sizes but making it so we both still eat the same. And the last bargain was chicken patties much like the broiled ones you get at the fast food places, 4 in a package for only $1.08!! I bought 6 packages and froze most of them for later. It's going to be nice picking one out for sandwiches and not having to cook them although if I have extra sauce hanging around, I will make them parmisean in the microwave. Yummy, yummy!!
So that was my day and not it's time to fill in all the journals, (food and exercise) so I can settle down for the night. Have a good one!!
