It’s around 5 in the afternoon and I have to confess I lied! I did not start the list, but sadly I am a procrastinator! However, I am not a slug! I got a lot of work done yesterday, going through clothes, weeding out what I don’t wear or need anymore. I ended up with 2 bags which was a total of 3 (counting the one in the car) to go to Goodwill. I was out fairly early to get them over there. When I came home I got back to work on organizing the clothes in the bedroom. Started a new bag for Goodwill and got most of the clothes I wear regularly organized and where I can find them. I have more to do, but I’ve achieved more space in the bedroom. The room is chock full of storage bins that I’ve already packed. I can’t put them anywhere else at the moment, but I needed to get them out of the way. I accomplished that and it gave me enough room that I will now be able to do my “Walk Away the Pounds” videos. I did my 30 minutes on the exercise bike this morning, but I really need to get in some more exercise. Since the weather isn’t really cooperating, my videos are my best bet. I’m going to do it tonight and make a deal with myself that I will do one of them every night. Hey, that sounds like that might be the number one on my list.
1. Get More Exercise!
I’m so impressed with myself! 🙂 I know I need more exercise. I used to be very good at work about taking the stairs instead of the elevators ( the scare me…creepy!) My pedometer was steaming! But at home, the house is so small, it hardly seems to make a difference how much I move back and forth through the house, there’s nowhere to go and I can’t get any extra steps in!! 😦 The videos will be a help.
As I’ve mentioned before, books are one of my favorite things. I was fortunate enough to get several Barnes & Noble gift cards for Christmas. I decided to put them to use and get some things that will help me with my blogging progress as well as my health progress. Here are my purchases:
I’ll talk about the 2 cookbooks as I go through them, but I’m very much enjoying reading “This Crazy Vegan Life” by Christina Pirello. I’ve been a fan of hers for years starting with her PBS show. This book is very instructive and I’m learning a lot. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to get to being a total vegan, but I do feel certain that my vegetarianism has had a positive impact on my health and my life. I can’t put a date on it, but I’d say it’s probably 20 years. I started Weight Watchers in March of 1987 and I probably stopped eating meat a few years after that so I’m saying 20 years. I feel it’s made a true difference in my life. In spite of some of the strange comments I get, I’m sticking with it. Fortunately, Ralph is supportive although he does try to get me to eat fish. He thinks that still makes me vegetarian. I just try to work around him. He’s pretty cute, so I’ll humor him. What he doesn’t know won’t hurt him! Time to find out what’s for dinner?!?!
