J - Just another lazy Sunday. Love spending time at my new house.

E - none. this is sad. I'm better than this. I did walk around IKEA for a while.

M - (b) Ikea (l) nothing (d) korean short ribs, edamame, rice. Baked some tollhouse cookies for hubby. Had one. Oops.

S - I'm constantly amazed at how much my husband loves me. He did all the laundry and folded them by the time I woke up from my nap. Then he prepped everything for dinner, so all I did was cook.
I feel like I won the lotto when he picked me. :-))))
Lost 7 lbs in a months time. I hope I can keep it off even while I'm cooking these yummy dishes.

J - First full weekend at the new house. Yay. Brian came over to visit and brought a jug of cherry cider. Scott has been a busy bee as usual, doing stuff around the house. I made his favorite meals for the first week in our new kitchen: spaghetti, bacon and eggs, and steak.

E - nothing, just work and moving. Need to start hitting the gym, especially since it's now down the street. No excuses!

M - (b) eggs, bacon (l) chicken thigh, spanakorizo (d) Roy's. Oops. I'll have to consider this my cheat day. :-/

S - Lost 5 lbs in the last 2 weeks. Great! I hope I can keep it off. The house is really coming together (of course, Scott is doing most the work). Spent two hours making Greek Lemon Chicken and Spanakorizo. Chicken turned out glorious, but the spanakorizo is not for me.

I'm going to start doing on a daily basis. It's an easy way to keep track of your day.
Journal- what did you do today?
Exercise- What exercise did you do today?
Meals- What did you eat?
Successes- What are you proud of?
Starting with yesterday.
J - Moving into the new house, almost finished unpacking, went to IKEA to return some stuff. Got some giftcards at Town Square.
E - Not much, but did walk around IKEA and Town Square. Moved some furniture at night.
M - (b)?? (l) chicken salad, very little chicken, mostly salad (d) one chicken thigh and pan-baked french fries. I did cheat and have half a chocolate cookie. Stole it from DH. Ooops.
S - Lost 3 lbs in 2 weeks. Love it! Love the new house. It's really coming together.

Prove me wrong.

Just kidding. I need to cook more. I really enjoy my cooking. Today I made homemade kimchi stew, and URGH-MAH-GAWD, it was delicious. I don't even like kim-chi! But I got seconds anyways. Ugh... now I'm so full. And I have to drink tons of water to flush away the MSG. No bueno. :-(

Here's the recipe I followed if you want to try it. It's super spicy, not for the faint of heart.

Made this for Adam on Halloween.

Here's the original recipe. I tweaked it to make it easier.

This was one of the first recipes I've made from scratch (experimenting with the measurements, ingredients, etc...) but as I was searching the internet, I find that it's already a popular recipe!
Usually I like to deep-fry squash in tempura batter, but I love to deep-fry food in huge batches since cleaning the deep fryer is a pain. I noticed the panko breading reheats much better than the tempura breading. So I use it for everything now. The parmesan cheese adds oomph to the bland squash.

As you get older, do you no longer feel this need to be nice to strangers and other random people?

Is this step one of "letting it all go"? hehe.

Today, I rudely hung up on the American Express lady.
I turned down an e-vite from an acquaintance.
I told a popular board's moderator that they sucked. (ok, I do this one a lot)
I'm going to stop going to my church and the only reason I'm going to give is, "I don't want to." (I've been going for the past five years and have been fairly active.)

I have to admit, my new-found freedom to be rude to people that don't give a shit about me is refreshing!

You should try it!

Let's have a National Be-Rude-To-People-Who-Don't-Matter Day. C'mon! You too can look at that bum straight in the eye and say, "NO, I will not give you money, even though I have it. I DON'T WANT TO."
