New Year…Day 3

Do energy drinks count as sugary soda? Yes. Darn. Well, then yesterday was a bust on that front. I only had one. Does that make it better? I suppose I should be pleased that the holiday season is over and I haven’t gained a pound. Nate has lost seven. Ridiculous. And last night, cooking devolved into pizza rolls and chocolate milk. Alas. I’m not giving up, though.

Day 3 of January and the last day that Nate will be home with Fynn and I. It is also the last day that I can slack on my work. Back to it tomorrow. Well, I should say back to it this afternoon.

January and February are no fun on the Nate travelling front. He is leaving for Vegas this Thursday through Sunday and then he’ll be home a week and then off to Orlando for seven days. Then in Feburary, he is going to Dubai and Bahrain for 15 days. At least the travelling slows down for a little while after that.

Despite many of my friends’ facebook posts to the contrary, I think I’ve been having a great 2010. I mean, it’s only day 3. The new year has so much potential. I love that. We’ll see how much I love it in 6 months. 🙂

Day 1 – New Year “Goals”

Welcome 2010! I’m already off to a slow start with my goals (I’ve recently finished sugary soda #2 for the day). I did master a Martha Stewart recipe last evening. I made herb roasted chicken with shallots and baked potatoes. I have to say that with a small change to the recipe (I used 6 shallots when the recipe called for 16 – which seemed like a lot and was particularly expensive), it turned out really well. So I guess that I can actually read a recipe. It wasn’t one of Martha’s ridiculous recipes, trust me she does have some of them in there, but it was very tasty. I just sent Nate off to the grocery store so I can attempt recipe numero dos – orange-soy pork chops and sauteed green beans. Stay tuned.

Besides the obvious sugary soda slip up, I haven’t exactly worked on my other two goals. Although, I am writing a blog and I suppose I did work on a press release today so I did write more. I have to pick up my first book of the challenge to prove I’ve read more. I also haven’t weighed myself today. I think that would be a depressing thing to do on New Year’s Day. I’ll give that one a go tomorrow. Please forgive me if I don’t divulge my weight on the blog. I don’t think I’m that brave.
