Monday 9-19

I am pleased with the bread that I bought.  I love Italian Bread, but it is white bread and I am trying to not eat white bread.  Well, the brand I love makes WHEAT Italian Bread!  Is that awesome?  I certainly think so.  So far I have been to a bit better with food but not with exercise.  With the little machine downstairs, I have had a bit of trouble getting up and down to go to the machine.  I think that has passed that now.  I think it was the cold that I have that was making it harder to go up and down.  I had to get some music yesterday and the day before so that is when I had a bit of a problem.

My goal is to eat more at home this fall so that I can put more money on the property taxes and also I eat much more healthy when I eat at home.  I have some wonderful spaghetti and sauce that I am going to make tomorrow.  I finally have another pasta pot!  I just have to open it and wash it so I can use it.  I am excited about it.  I love Italian food so much.  Of course, I also like Mexican, Chinese, American, Greek, and well, I like a lot of different types of food.  I also will cook the corned beef brisket that I have in the crock pot this week.

I hope you have a healthy food week too!

September Already?

Wow, it is September already.  That is very hard to believe.  I can't say I am doing super good with eating more healthy, nor can I say I am doing bad.  It all depends on the day.  Some days I rock, others I don't.  With winter coming, I am trying to focus on cleaning up and organizing the family room so that I can exercise downstairs on the elliptical.  The other exercise equipment will be donated, but I am keeping that one.  I haven't done it in a few weeks.  Partly because some days I have been so tired I couldn't and the others because I forgot.  Yeah, not good.  I am hoping with the schedule becoming more and more stable, that I will have better time management this fall.  It has been cooler these last couple of weeks.  Labor Day weekend went from near 100 degrees on Saturday to low 70s on Sunday.  This week also went from mid 80s on Tuesday to high 60s on Wednesday.  I naturally, have a cold from the major changes.  This happens a lot during the fall and winter.  I do hope this stays a mild cold and doesn't get worse.  We shall see.  I have been resting most of the day and I foresee after Beth's lesson going back to bed.
