Alicia is home from drum major camp, and Alex will be going back to school tomorrow. Alicia's first day is on Tuesday. Both are pretty excited about it. Alex got a computer programming/design class that he's really looking forward to, and Alicia just wants to get back to all her friends.
I'm back in the healthy eating/exercise routine. I've got Craig moving, too, though he's been taking long walks with Lucy instead of coming with me to the gym. A group of friends started a new DietBet, so I signed on for this one. It's one of those sites where you pay $25 and have 4 weeks to lose 4%. Everyone who succeeds splits the pot at the end. I can do that. I know I can. I've done it twice already. Plus, I feel so much better when I'm exercising. My hips thank me for it when I'm done.
My other goal is trying to go through the two-foot high stack of food magazines I've been collecting for the past ten years. I needed to make room for the three new cookbooks I got yesterday, and I ended up cleaning out that cupboard. I pulled a dozen of them, but that leaves me at least another dozen to go through. Today's recipes were a peach turnover and a green bean sauté. They were both okay, but nothing worth repeating or sharing. Tomorrow, black bean burgers. Yum.
