Still cookin'!

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Literally! I've made it two weeks cooking dinner at least 4 nights a week, and we sat down and made our menu and shopped for next week! I'm liking it. I enjoy the time with my husband as he helps get stuff ready and clean up after.

And after my workout tonight, I'll be on day 19 of working out everyday in January! I will do this!! And after seeing the idea on Pinterest, I started a workout tip jar for myself. Well, it's really an envelope pinned to my bulletin board. :)

I've already got $18 saved up to spend on WHATEVER I want, guilt free, because I earned it! I'm thinking a new pair of boots... :)

Okay, now on to the not so good stuff. The tracking and measuring everyday. The everyday part is not happening. Well, I just looked at it and I've tracked 14 out of 19 days, so that's not so bad, and three of those were days I was out of town. And I was only in my calorie range 4 of those days. Being in my range wasn't really part of this goal, but that's kind of a big part of my weight loss goal, you know?

I've got a plan, though, and I'm going to get out of the habit of eating all the candy I want. And I bought a kitchen scale, so I can have one portion of one dessert per day. Or none. None is better. Maybe I should put another dollar in my tip envelope for days I don't eat sweets? I kind of like that idea! I'm going to do it!

    it is important that we do things to keep us encouraged and motivated. i have found that eating and cooking with my husband is also fun because it gives us quality time.
