So far... Ok!

The new year is pretty close to a week old now. I did get on the treadmill and start back to walking. I set a goal of 50 miles a month. So far I have racked up 11.7 miles. MAKING myself get on the treadmill is the hard part.

I am trying to cook lower fat foods, and in smaller portions. Cooking for two has been a real challenge to me. While I can make 1/2 lb. hamburger into a meal for nine... The same amount of chicken doesn't look like "enough" for two people. Especially when my methods of "stretching" the burger added a lot of starch and fats.

I am really missing the kids. it is very quiet and... boring! without them. (You know, boring is a good thing when the kids ARE around.)

I'm getting better at keeping up the day to day stuff around here... but having been sick, things have really slid. I spent much of today trying to catch things up somewhat.

May you have a blessed day!

PS The new blog header is of my #3 son atop Mount Scott. The picture was (probably) taken by his sister Becky, unless she allowed one of the twins to handle the camera for that shot.
