I used to set goals pretty frequently and haven't done that for a while- Sunday seems as good a day as any to set some aims for the coming week...
- do 1 social thing: I bumped into a friend today whom I haven't seen since I was 15. We chatted for 10 mins and exchanged numbers- this week's goal is to call her and arrange to meet.
- try 2 new meals: I have been doing better in expanding my food choices lately, but want to kick it up a notch and try something completely different. I've bought the food so there's no backing out now!
- don't buy anymore food: I NEED to stop buying groceries... I seem to go every day to a store and rarely leave empty handed. The result is an over-stuffed freezer and feeling anxious that there is so much food around to be used up (plus it's getting unnecessarily expensive!) I have everything I need for the week so there is NO reason to buy more right now.
- start reading for 20 minutes a day: I was doing this, but seem to have stopped over the last couple of weeks. I miss it!
- go to bed by 10pm every night: I am still having a lot of trouble falling and staying asleep- I seem to wake up around 5 regardless of what time I DO go to bed so I want to make sure I give myself enough time to get a decent night's rest.
"Be not afraid of moving forward- only of standing still"
Anyone want to join me on setting some goals for the week?
***********Breakfast was bran flakes mixed with microwaved banana and Fage cherry twin pot.
This is kind of random, but I have noticed that the days I have peanut butter for breakfast, I crave SALT all day long- to the point where I can literally taste it on my lips. Does anyone else find this with peanut butter? It seems kind of strange!
As part of Katie's challenge to try new foods, I picked up some large flat mushrooms. I LOVE mushrooms but have never had the bigger ones before.
I made a filling with diced mushroom, garlic, Italian herbs and laughing cow cheese- spread the mushroom with tomato chutney, added the filling, sprinkled with parmesan and baked for 30 mins. It was really good! I very rarely cook and it's even more rare that I 1) last minute impulsively buy something to incorporate into a meal that I had planned, and 2) that I make up a recipe as I go along without spending hours calculating the nutritional content. Yeah, kind of proud of myself for this one (even if it isn't the prettiest of meals!)
This was just an 'extra'/side dish/appetiser for the main event:
Chicken in red wine and mushroom sauce with cabbage and spring onion mashed potato, with steamed vegetables. Ready made meal that I bought last weekend- was pretty good for prepackaged food. With 30g protein, I had been won over before I tasted it :P
Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday!
