Keeping it cheap

July 21, 2009 at 10:43 pm (Daily Workouts/Eats, General Life Updates)

So far so good on the contest. Eaten pretty well the last couple days, and most importantly, haven’t binged at night. Worked out hard, did lower body last night and upper body tonight. And I’m feeling good. The only thing I’m worried about at this point is running out of fresh produce and not being able to afford to buy more. But I’ll just have to make do.

This evening the kids and  I spent some time outside; I weeded and they played. My SIL came by to lend me some Oxygen and Clean Eating magazines to look at. I love looking at magazines if they are good ones with something more than fluff pictures in them, so I’m excited to get new recipe and workout ideas from them. Yesterday I went to the library and checked out a couple books. So I’m stocked with reading material for now.

I also went across the street tonight and borrowed a mixer from my neighbor because I’m been asked to make some snickerdoodles tomorrow for the young women’s activity tomorrow night. I’ll let each of the kids have a cookie, but I need to stay out of them and deliver them all to my friend that made the request. I’m flattered that I make the best snickerdoodles she could think of. That’s never happened before.

Tomorrow should be a busy day. I’m supposed to go visiting teaching (basically visiting women from our church’s women’s organization to see if they need anything or if we can do anything for them), make the cookies, take the kids to a kiddie birthday party. And I’ve also made a list of chores I want to get done.

I’m hoping to take P swimming sometime this week in the pool where her swimming lessons will be held next week so that she is familiar with the place and feels comfortable. That will maybe happen Friday or Saturday morning. But I’ll need either my mom or K to go with me, because the pool isn’t shallow enough anywhere for the kids to stand on their own and I’ll need help holding up P and K2.

Well, I better take a shower and get some sleep.
