Today’s Accomplishments

I know I haven’t  posted (or even finalized, if I’m being honest) my long term goals for the WIWTB, but I figure if I slow my roll…it will completely halt and be stuck in the very rut from which I’m trying to claw my way out.

So today…

I made the dreaded trek to The Wal Mart. I bought a lot things we need and a lot of things I think we need to accomplish some goals.

Ground Chuck Roast – I’m not exactly sure WTF I’m supposed to do with it, but I was standing in the meat department and excitedly yelling in my head, “I WANT TO MAKE A ROAST!” Well, roast looked expensive and this was half price. But it’s a slab, not the roundish ones I remember my Mom making. Vive le Google!  I guess I’ll figure it out. This is part of my goal to eat healthier, learn to cook different things so we don’t eat so much processed foods, and get out of the “same old, same old” pit.

Nail File and Nail Polish – This is part of my goals of using the time I have for myself wisely and taking more pride in my appearance. I want to start painting my nails and I haven’t give myself a pedicure in…I don’t even know how long. Taking pride in my appearance has, in the past, led to me feeling better about myself causing a snowball of momentum that splatters into other parts of my life. I filed my nails while I watched Project Runway. Baby steps.

Fresh Produce – How long does a head of lettuce last? I’ve never bought one, but I figured what the heck, if I’m getting all crazy. I almost asked an Amish woman if she knew. I regret not doing that.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and Organic Free Range Cage Free Hand Fed Once Had Kids And A Wife Chicken Breast – How delightfully pretentious. This chicken is clean to cycle in the Tour de France. But really, the hummus is to drown broccoli in and the chicken was individually packaged and had the fat trimmed off. I despise doing that.

Greek Yogurt – I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon. If everyone else is breaking plates, why shouldn’t I? Oooompa!

I also cleaned out a cupboard that was full of junk and used it for its rightful purpose to store extra dry goods.  Hopefully, I stay organized enough to remember how much stuff we have up there before it expires.

I made coffee and set the timer. I KNOW! Such a stupid little task makes me more apt to drag myself from the warm covers on time and have a more productive day.

Tonight’s Goals: 

Wash and chop some veggies and pack them for a snack at work tomorrow.

Lay out everyone’s clothes.

Bonus goal:  put on a clear coat of nail polish.
