Well things have been going good. I have been cooking at home more and more finding recipes that are interesting that keep me interested in wanting to eat at home. I realized that the food I eat when I go out all taste the same to isn't even that good. So cooking new meals at home helps me have new tastes and keeps things changed up. Not to mention it is way healthier.

I have been trying to run on my treadmill. I am not sure I ever really want to be a "runner" but I am a big fan of interval training and a lot of the Couch to 5k programs have good intervals so I have been using them. I use my manual treadmill because that is what I have and I can make it work. It has a 7% grade that is as flat as it will go so it is harder then a regular treadmill and I get upset I can't go 10 miles on it. But you know what its okay I will do what I can. I need to keep it moving hehe.

In other news my car broke down so we are looking for a new one right now. I think I will post my new favorite recipe on my recipe blog.

Hope the New Year is being great to you.

New Year, New Me??

That is the plan...but then again that has always been the plan. For a least the last 6 new years. I don't make resolutions I just don't because it seems silly to me to wait for a new year to make a big plan only to fail a month later and then wait other 10 months to make that resolution again.

I am going to make every day my new day. I was thinking about buying myself a elliptical machine. And then when I got that I would start working out...after thinking about it for a while DO YOU REALIZE HOW RIDICULOUS THAT SOUNDS!!! I was going to not try to lose weight until I got that. I was doing it again. So I am NOT getting one. I have enough exercise equipment, Wii system and dvd's plus weights to lose as much weight as I want to...I don't need to add more to it I need to really use what I have for once. The money I save will be used to buy good foods for me and perhaps good cookbooks. I also might see how much my school would charge to let me use their pool. I think its about 12 dollars for the term but you can only use it at certain times.

So here I go..
