Todayís update

October 20th, 2011 at 05:24 pm

I exercised after work on Tuesday and Wednesday for 30 minutes and I have to admit itís the first time Iíve exercised in quite awhile. I had so much energy when I got home, so Iíd like to do another 30 minutes today. I will walk outside if itís not raining, otherwise I will go to my workplace gym and do the elliptical. Iím starting small, limiting myself to 30 minutes, even if I want to keep going, just to get me back into the swing of exercising. Then I can increase it from there, hopefully adding some running.

I ate a breakfast of zucchini soup made by a friendís husband, to which I added sunflower seeds and Ezekiel sprouted grain cereal to make it heartier to fill me up since I wonít be eating lunch until about 1:30. I made a turkey, tomato, parsley sandwich with mayo and mustard on a fresh pita pocket from a local bakery for lunch. Iíll also enjoy some free red grapes from a recent work event. For dinner Iím making linguini with tomatoes, cubed mozzarella cheese, peas, cauliflower, fresh parsley, olive oil, salt and pepper. Iíve been curbing my habit of junk food buying and eating Ė yay! I got a free chocolate turtle at my finance workshop and some free cookies at a work event yesterday, so Iíll have some sweet indulgences on the cheap!

Tomorrow Iím going to bring my breakfast to work, then order a late lunch from a local Indian place as a treat. Iíll eat that around 3, which will hopefully serve as both lunch and dinner. I figure getting lunch will be cheaper than ordering dinner. At 4, Iím attending a stress reduction event and then at 6, Iím going to a local theater to see a Bollywood dance routine (my hairdresser is in the troupe) and then watching a Bollywood film (3 hours Ė yikes!). Should be a fun evening for $6. Iím hoping one of my friends will be able to join me, sheís going to let me know tomorrow. I should bring some type of snack, since itís going to be a long afternoon/evening.

The finance class is going well and fulfilling its intended purpose. Iíve been tracking my spending, creating goals, and will formulate a spending plan. Weíll be pulling our credit reports, which I havenít done in years, so it will be helpful to review that for any mistakes.

Iíve got a nasty cold sore on my lip and Iím looking forward to the day that itís gone! They take so long to heal, even with Abreve. Does anyone else get cold sores and what do you use for them?

    Lysine. My neighbor takes it when she has a cold sore. It can be found at health food stores. It is also at iHerb dot com (a $5 coupon on my sidebar)

    Good luck getting back on track with the exercise!

    My mother takes vitamin C daily as a preventative measure for cold sores. It seems to work for her.
