Trying to eat at home and other goals.

January 12th, 2009 at 10:15 am

Buying the house really messed up our cooking schedule. So we are currently trying to get back in the habit. I seem to have mostly cured myself of eating out at work but supper still needs some work. Good news is that more salad and homemade artisan bread has been making it into the rotation (I really only like artisan bread and that is because its crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside). Smile

We have a new porch light to put up to replace the one they left us that has a nice large burned out hole in it (too high of a wattage bulb is not a good thing). It hangs down instead of standing up which is good because the current one nearly touches the roof (aka, doesn't really fit in that spot).

We still need to clean the old apartment and I think that may be a project for the upcoming weekend. Fortunately this weekend I did manage to sort our clothes. 1 bag to throw away, 1 bag to goodwill. Yikes that is alot. Other than the cords sitting next to the TV (still haven't hooked the Wii up), the new house is mostly cleaned up and organized. Finally.

I dragged my DH out this weekend for a beginning run (think mostly walking with some running) and figure we will do that 2x per week to avoid giving myself stress fractures (again). I am also going to push for us to do weight training 2x per week as well. The lack of exercise for the past 2 1/2 months is killing me (no walking a 1/2 hour per day every day doesn't count) and may be contributing to my wanting to eat out all the time (both act as stress relievers). Since neither of these activities require new equipment (well, we did by non-summer workout clothes but that is multi-use and needed), we can just do it and not have to worry about the money for it.

The items that were required were shoes for him (since he hadn't bought any in the past year) and some workout clothes that weren't shorts and tank tops, lol. I was able to get my stuff at Ross but we had to pay a little more for his since Ross didn't have anything in his size (a normal problem, small is a very popular size for the guys).

Its a good thing I restart my budget every month because January was again over budget. Not, surprisingly, for out to eat food or groceries though, just house stuff and clothes. That has got to be a first for me, food under budget and household stuff over budget.

    good going on the getting fit. i had shin splints too when i was running four or five times a week. i now ride an exercise bike which is much easier on my legs. Plus the track where i usually run is sort of bushland and there are lots of snakes there in summer. I think I will pick up the walking with a bit of running once winter comes along in july.

    Goodness you were ambitious. Running 4 or 5 times a week, yikes. I did elliptical and weight training until 3 months ago (3 times per week) and the results still show but I would rather not let myself go so long that it becomes difficult to recover that fitness (mainly lung capacity, used to be pretty low).

    Funny you mention the shin splints. I don't get them from running but I have been having them from the walking everyday, one of the directions I walk is all uphill and I haven't been stretching lately. Time to get everything limbered back up.Flexibility is the one thing where the time off definitely shows.
