this weeks themes:
searching, wearing, needing, moving, eating
a) My current searching and eating subjects kind of go together this week! It's no secret that I love to meal plan. This goes nicely with the fact that I am a list maker. I find that not only is it handy to know exactly what I am cooking for dinner throughout the week, I also tend to save money.
here as well as many other printables for a home management binder, which I also use!
This week the things I am searching for are recipes for food we will be eating next week. I like to mix it up and try new things, but sometimes I add in old favorites. For example, this week I am going to make pesto chicken lasagna rolls again. I love pesto. I also love recipes that are yummy, but simple to make. Bonus points for ones that are also inexpensive. Currently that means anything without beef because that shit is expensive. My one little pound of ground beef will have to work.
b) I'm having to wear actual "out of the house" clothes now. Boo. I'd like to just be in my yoga pants all day, please and thank you. But no, I have to pick up the son from basketball practice three nights a week and he frowns upon me showing up in my comfy clothes. Teenagers and their embarrassment. Gah.
c) I am needing more hours in a day. Since establishing a new cleaning schedule I have found that I do get everything done, but I also don't have much time to be lazy on the internets. I miss you internets.
d) I ordered a FitBit. I am very much out of shape and am not too pleased with my body in general. I should eat healthier and drink more water. But what put me on the path was that I saw some ridiculous BMI chart that told me I was overweight. I know, I know... I shouldn't really listen to a chart on the internet. I am 5' 1" tall and weigh 138 lbs. Definitely not "overweight" by any means. However, I still look like I am about 4 months pregnant with my little spare tire that seems to just lurve me like no other. I don't hold myself accountable for what I eat/drink and that's going to change. I'm going to get moving. I'm not getting any younger and it's beyond time to start taking care of myself. I wanted to order the scale to go along with it, but 1) it was $130 and 2) I am more interested in losing this belly than what I weigh.
Reading: The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern - I can barely put it down.
Watching: Not much. Waiting for the Fall seasons to kick in so I can DVR the shit out of everything.
