In just over two hours I had at least 13 of your comments with terrific advice. So I will be joining the gym the end of this month. I have to do it by the end of this month, they pro-rate and it’s already 1/3 of the way through this month and I still can get out and walk and exercise so I figured December is a great time to join. So to cut corners even more on a budget that is tight I’m thinking of disconnecting the house phone. We mainly use the cell phones anyway and those are paid for through my husbands business. Only thing is I don’t think my grandma will like that. I do have an 800 number on my cell so she can still use the house phone but when I sorta suggested it a while back it wasn’t taken kindly too. My mama’s another one that’s not thrilled but we’ll just see. Mike did say he’d help too. So it will work out and that means I will work out.
Today I was figuring out the next weeks menu and the more I follow along with everyone I find out that what I thought was great is just good. I have a long ways to go figuring out what really is good for a person and what’s not. It’s a struggle to make sure the calories are there and the carbs, fats and sugars aren’t. I know that once I get it, I’ll have it for a life time. I am far from the beginning like in January this year but it’s going to be a never ending process of figuring it all out. But then again, if I were to figure it all out then what fun would it be learning. So learning it is.
I got a bunch of purple tators the other day. I was talking about putting it into a soup and Allan told me to not waste them in there, to roast them in the oven for 30 minutes with olive oil and seasonings. Well that’s what they are doing right now and the smell, WOW the smell. It’s wonderful!! I am also making my batch of veggie beef soup for the next 6-10 meals. I love having a huge jar to scoop out of and I used just a small 6 oz steak in this huge batch so even though red meat is not suppose to be your friend, it’ll be less then an ounce in each bowl and the protein will be good for me. I just tasted it and it’s prefect. Want to see….?….
Here’s the the tators before and after baking….
Here’s my soup…it’s still hot…
So thank you everyone for answering my question this morning. I will just give it a shoot and see how it all works out. It sure can’t hurt me and since I’m just about 40 lbs lighter and I’m feeling better about myself just maybe it won’t bother me that there’s people there. I am wondering what it’s like at 5 am when they open up. I might have to give that a shot on days I don’t start daycare until 8:00. Just an idea.
Take care you all and have the most blessed afternoon!
