Everything But The Kitchen Sink

That’s what this blog will have, everything but the kitchen sink! 
I will break it up in sections and try to keep it short. Pardon the rambling and grammatical errors. I am pre-drafting this at a very early hour.
Years, months, and goals:  
Seriously, where did March go? Do you realize that ONE QUARTER of 2011 is already GONE! Wasn’t it just New Years? I am happy about time flying by because yesterday was Opening Day! Welcome to summer, baseball fans! But can I be honest with you? A quarter of the year is gone and I feel like I haven’t accomplished anything noteworthy yet. I mean I know that can’t be true, but I feel like something is missing or incomplete.
To review my March goals: 
  • Use food journal every day. – YES YES YES! Wooo!
  • 1 mile for every day. 31 miles. In addition to other workouts. – I missed 6 days.
  • Finish the Harry Potter Series. I have the last 4 books to read. – Nope. Fail.
  • Continue the job hunt. – Yes. Several times a week. Still nothing.
  • Save 10% from checking to savings every week. – Yes! Savings is growing!
  • Keep working on my organization and time management. – A work in progress!

April Goals:

  • Track everything related to my healthiness journey.
  • Lose 7 pounds this month. Odd number, but that’s what I want! 
  • Two new vegetarian recipes a week. 
  • Make decisions about school.

 Today: C25K My Way!!
Total time: 24:44
Calories burned: 270
Estimated miles: according to GPS 1.99 miles

My run felt great!! It was FINALLY a cool, breezy 72 degrees! I went to a paved park trail!
 After then run I met my brother at my parents house to help him clean up from the last 4 days of storms. Some parts Central Florida had hurricane forced winds, others had tornadoes, and we all had a lot of wind and rain! Which meant a lot of falling branches and trees. I spent about 2 hours with my brother sawing the fallen branches and moving them down the road for pick up. Which was a workout of it’s own!

Last night I wanted Mexican!! So I resorted to my new Hungry Girl book to come up with a yummy feast! I was quite pleased with my veggie creation!

 I adapted my Quesadilla from Hungry Girl’s SW BBQ Chicken Quesadilla.
Her recipe totals 299 calories. Mine came to 315. I was pleased. You can use the link above to see the exact recipe or you can find it in the new Hungry Girl’s new book!

    That is a Polar F4. Check into the FitBit, by Microsoft. It's similar to the body bug but a lot smaller. I have friends who own the FitBit and love it! Just a thought! Any good HRM you will be looking at about $100.
