The One Full of Momentum

First things first…

Now that they have let the cat out of the bag, I want to offer a huge shout out and WOOOOHOOOO to two fabulous girlies for their courage and recommitment to themselves and their healthy journeysAngie and Lynn took a big leap this weekend!  Check out their posts for all the details.

And onto my Sunday…

It actually turned out to be a good thing that I skipped the craft fair and tackled my to-do list.  Let’s revisit…

  • dust
  • finish vacuuming
  • laundry  (last load drying now)
  • banking and budgeting
  • groceries
  • wrap gift – take to post office (x2!)
  • self-manicure (while watching AR)
  • tackle stack of magazines  (in progress)

WooT!

Hopefully I can keep this momentum going.

While I worked, I snacked on coffee and a Pumpkin Cream Cheese muffin

Later some plain yogurt with sliced banana and Kashi Honey Almond Flax cereal

A leftover Larabar to tide me over through grocery shopping (under $30 this week!!)…

And a couple of clementines when I got home…

Dinner was inspired by the bag of local beets I have in the veggie drawer.  While flipping through the latest Rachael Ray magazine I found a recipe for a ricotta and beet pasta dish, so thought I’d give it a whirl.

It was OK.  The beets weren’t cooked enough (by following their directions) and I find it a bit bland (this happens frequently with RR recipes)…

It was labelled four servings but I got at least 5, maybe 6 out of it.  I froze some of it so hopefully I can season it up and make it a little more tasty in the future.

After all of the standing, bending, carrying, cleaning, cooking, and puttering today my neck/arm is VERY angry with me…so my evening consists of hugging my heat pack and trying to find a reasonably comfy position to lay in on the couch.  :(

Thankfully I have decaf tea, leftover Monster Cookies, and The Amazing Race to keep me entertained…

See you bright and early tomorrow morning y’all! (*snicker*)

That beet salad looks good, is there something that you could add to make it less bland?

Thanks for the shout, it's so great to have friends behind us!

I'm eagerly awaiting that pumpkin cream cheese muffin recipe....:)
