Well, well, well – we are well into 2011 already, aren’t we? There is something so exciting about starting a new year with a clean slate. I’m committed to my New Year’s resolutions and in fact, keep thinking of other things I should add on to the list. It’s going to be a good year, I can feel it!!
Something I’m focusing on this year streamlining my life a bit so I have more time for things that make me truly happy. Today, Adam and I made a decision to cancel our cable (well, bring it all the way down to basic) and I hope that for me, this removes the temptation of trashy brainless television and leaves more room for cooking, reading, friends and blog related activities (it will also save us nearly $90/month!). Yeah, Millionaire Matchmaker was the last straw before that decision was made (yup, I’ve hit the bottom, lol) [We will be buying Apple TV so that we can still enjoy our favorite shows on occasion!]
Today, Adam and I also came up with an awesome new feature that will be added to Healthy and Sane. I am SUPER excited about it but you’ll have to wait for details (we literally just thought of it today so there is a lot of stuff to figure out!). I hope it will make this blog a more interactive and helpful experience for all of you. Stay tuned!
Lastly, I’m proud to say I’m back in full force on the exercise bandwagon. 2 workouts in 2 days in 2011 (actually 5 since this post) and I’m feeling all new and shiny. I love how exercise makes me feel. Don’t let me skip too many days in a row, ok? Ask me about it!!
The food part has been interesting. I’ve been semi-healthy the past few days (well there were cookies and wine on NYE but that’s to be expected) but either the meals I try have been bland or my taste buds are being extra picky.
Case and point…
North African chickpea and vegetable tagine from the Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook
9 PointsPlus and bland. Extra salt and hot sauce made it edible but despite all the spices, I still found this boring.
I love mushrooms but found this to be too mushroomy. What’s up with me?!
Are you ever bored of just about anything you cook/eat? Any new changes for you in this new year?
I hope I get out of this weird food funk. I want to be excited about everything this new year has to offer (and you know food is up there)!!
