so. new life, new habits, right?    almost.
I’ve been doing a lot of talking about how great Boston is, how I’m stressfree, & all is wonderful.

Yes. the intensity level of my life is significantly lower – awesome  &  I’ve changed a few of my habits:
1. I’ve been running. 2-3 times a week & I’m up to 4.5 miles.  (granted I’ve only managed to do it once, but it got done)
2. I’ve been cooking.  But not as much as I need to be.
3. I’ve been painting my own nails. Saving money and pretty much looks the same. thats definitely a win.
4. I’ve been drinking more water.  a good thing for sure – but needs to continue on the weekends.  Should not be entirely because I don’t have enough to do at work.

Thats a good start.  But I really need to kick it up a notch.  I’ve been reading a bunch of new blogs about running & cooking & being healthy, etc etc (and really I could spend dayyysss reading this stuff)   Now I need to start incorporating it in my life.  Its one thing to read about all these great healthy recipes, time to start making them.

new goals:
make better decisions – if I plan to run on friday, don’t give in to happy hour.
cook more – need to stop going to out to dinner twice a week & start cooking for friends
phase out frozen/super-processed food – there is absolutely zero reason why I need LeanCuisine in my life
more substancial breakfast – special K bars do not count as a meal. fact.

so I’m not a cook. I tell myself I can follow recipe and it usually comes out well. I’ve been trying to cook more. I’ve made a handful of things recently, mostly courtesy of an email of recipes from D.Breen.

last night, I decided to make pizza (recipe free) Granted Whole Foods actually made the dough, I took care of the rest & was quite pleased with myself. sauteed onions & garlic over fresh tomato slices, a splash of red sauce & fresh mozzarella. mmmm.
