Just a little bit of news...
I bought a new pair of jeans yesterday, along with a couple of tank tops with lace trim, all from Reitman's. I like shopping at Reitman's because the clothes are stylish and suit my lifestyle (that of a housewife) and because they sell regular s... Read more
Dinner was delicious. :)
I made a really good dinner tonight.
Preheated the oven to 375 F.
3 lb chicken, stuffed it with two lemons that I had cut into quarters.
Small mixing bowl, added 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1 teaspoon rosemary, and... Read more
I like to cook. I enjoy trying new recipes, but my favourite things to make are good, solid, down-home meals that I don't need to fuss over - and that includes reading a recipe! As a result, there are a few things I make pretty regularly: soup, ... Read more
The "EVERY Day" part of the plan.
Here I am, as promised, with the list of Solutions I'll be continuing or trying to work into my life for the next three weeks. I say continuing because some of them are things I already do (score!), not because I'm going to copy the Solutions fr... Read more
Moving on to "EVERY Day"!
Recap: I am doing The FLEX Diet, which is in a book of the same name, by Dr James Beckerman (MD). There are three stages: "Today"; "EVERY Day"; and "YOUR Way." I started with "Today" on February 23, and it lasted for two weeks. Today I am starti... Read more
Things aren't going quite as planned.
I'd hoped to make my post today after I'd done my exercises and gone for my walk, but that didn't happen, so instead I'm posting before bed. *sigh*
I am finding it really difficult right now to follow plans (no matter how simple), and just ... Read more
Well, long johns sure don't help my legs stay toasty.
I need to figure out some way to keep my thighs from freezing when I'm out for my walks, though. It's so windy out here that if I'm walking into the wind, my thighs get really cold really fast. J has told me to wear this horrid face mask thing t... Read more
It's COLD outside!
My poor iPod measured how far I went wrong. It counted my steps right but gave twice the distance. So I thought I'd gone a mile when I'd only gone half a mile, which means that I thought I took a two mile walk and only walked one. ... Read more
A rare second entry today.
I really need to get to the pharmacy and pick up my medication.
I take 25mg Adderall XR every morning.
Except I took my last one on Saturday, and my refill has been languishing at the pharmacy - it was ready to be picked up Friday even... Read more
I started so well, but then things kind of went downhill over the weekend. I lost my pedometer on Saturday, which is saddening to say the least. At least it was a cheap model. (I decided not to bother with fancy ones anymore, since they stop wor... Read more
Saw the doctor yesterday.
I have high cholesterol. High BAD cholesterol. I am supposed to cut back on fats and add flax seed to my diet and exercise more and get another blood test done in three months. It's only JUST over where it should be, so it's been caught nice and... Read more
We ran out of water last week, on Tuesday. On Thursday, we got the cistern re-filled and found that the pump was broken because I didn't turn it off on Tuesday (because I didn't know it had to be turned off). On Saturday, we got a new pump. Yest... Read more
Moving is nuts.
We have been moving. We are sort of still moving - since we're unpacking.
Our new house is nice and big, but we have too much stuff - it seems like it is full of boxes! I'm sure we'll get things organized and put away eventually, but until ... Read more
Getting things done!
Well, last week was great. It was so nice to have some time with my brother. We haven't always gotten along very well, so it's always good to connect positively. I didn't track my food last week, though, and I didn't really exercise, either. I h... Read more
What a week!
I returned home on Thursday to a house that was three times worse than it was when I left. ACK!
J and I went out to the new place on Friday night to look around and check it out. It was pretty good, just a few things to worry about.
Sa... Read more
