Let me out of this thing!

Do you know what is worse then being stuck on a rut?

Being stuck in a rut with the smelliest of undead. Let's face it. When it comes to undead, zombies probably rank amongst the top contenders for STINK.

But maybe even worse than that, (yes there is such a thing) is feeling like you are ready to pull yourself out of the rut and you remember the Y is closed. Blah.

It's alright though. Tomorrow the Y is open and I am ready to get myself back in gear. I was trying to prepare myself for the damage I did by not eating properly and not having worked out in two weeks. But it wasn't as bad as I had thought. I really only put back on about 4lbs. At least I know that trying to make healthy choices most of the time means that I am starting to make some sometimes even when I am not trying.

But on that note, as I try to make healthy decisions. I borrowed a book all about roasted vegetables from the library! So I am going to make a goal to browse through this book tonight and update my blog tomorrow with a vegetable goal! I was tempted to make a goal of one recipe from the book a night for the next week, but fresh veggies can be pricey and I don't exactly have the funds all the time. So I will look through it and come to a decisions. I will probably make it a goal of three times this week and next week. :)

I need to get back to the Y!

Maybe for a veggie goal, try eating at least 3 colors per day or try a veggie you've never eaten before. And I hear ya on the price of vegs - they can be way out there! Maybe try a Farmer's Market - they're pretty cheap :)

Good luck!

This whole eating healthy thing is expensive. My hubby and I are on a super tight budget and I've been so careful on what we buy. Thankfully, we have a garden so we have a ton of tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, zucchini and green beans! :)

Now, I just need to find a way to make these veggies taste better! LOL

Love your blog, take care!

Thank you for the comments! Midori, I love the idea of three colors. Especially if I incorporate it to include fruits also.

Our farmers market is only cheap on Sunday. Then the selection isn't very good. But I do try and shop there whenever possible.

Maggie, you are so right. I used to have a garden when I lived in NY. Since moving to FL I haven't been able to get this gardening thing down. I wish I did! I miss the fresh veggies so badly.

It's the zombies. They are purposely hanging out in my yard when I am not around contaminating the soil, I just know it.
