Here I created this monster and then completely let it fall by the wayside for a week. I’m sorry, Monster! Don’t eat me!
Really, it’s just been an eventful week. I got hired on for a new job (yay!) and so I’ve been doing orientation and signing paperwork and fun things like that. It’s been pretty preoccupying, but I’m looking forward to working in a new atmosphere.
The other thing that’s been occupying my time has been changing my life! I’ve been trying to improve my life one habit at a time, and since it takes supposedly 21 days to implement new habits, I’ve been trying to pick good habits to start off with.
The first habit I started off with was quitting my Diet Coke habit, and let me tell you, that was a difficult one. For anyone around me that first week, they will tell you I was a whiny, whiny human being. I made sure my displeasure was known far and wide. I was missing this sweet, sweet nectar:
But I did it! I successfully weaned myself off of my daily Diet Coke. Frankly, I really haven’t noticed that much of a difference (even in my pocketbook), but I think it’s best for me in the long run. I’ll still have one every once in a while (everything in moderation!) but once a week is a huge difference from once a day.
Which leads us to this week’s resolution- cooking more! I can be really bad about panicking at dinner time- the Bearded One works a lot of nights, so I’ll either forage desperately in the kitchen or go hit up a drive through. That can end up being really expensive, so this week what I did was plan my dinners in advance and got all I needed from the store at once. It was really convenient! The Bearded One was also home most of those nights which made me feel really accomplished. Here’s a picture of our lunch today:
Tuna Melts- hurray Pinterest!
Hopefully this will lead me, step by step, to being an overall healthier person. Baby steps!
I leave you with the snuggly cat picture of the week:
