  1. 03/02/2009 - P.H.A.T. Chick Journal

    by , 03-03-2009 at 02:03 AM
    I did okay today. Not great, but not terrible, either.

    I walked for 35 minutes on the treadmill, and I got my sit-ups, push-ups, and free weights in.

    I drank my eight glasses of water, and I'll take my multi-vitamin tonight.

    Meal-wise, I had oatmeal, about 1/2 of a carrot, and 2 cups of coffee for breakfast; leftover baked brussels sprouts for lunch; a handful of peanuts and a couple of kumquats as a snack; and a large serving of stir-fried mushrooms ...

    I don't think the FF is going to make the cut. He called today (yay!) but wanted to get together for trivia night at a bar. Huh?? Do guys really think a girl is going to run out and meet him the day of?!

    When we spoke tonight, it was apparent that he hasn't put much thought into our date. He basically gave me his schedule and told me to pick a day and something to do. But it had to be casual (i.e., bar) and no "stuffy crap" like dinner and movie (that's a direct quote) ...

  4. I Can See the Back of My Freezer!

    Freezer challenge: beginning of week 3

    Did good last week using up items as planned. The pot roast vegetables turned out to be leftover stew, which we ate for dinner Saturday. There's a little of that left which I think DH will take for lunch tomorrow.

    I made a big pot of chicken stock out of the backs and wings tips I had been saving, only to discover my pot pie recipe does not use it (it uses chicken base). I used some anyway, in place of some of the heavy cream. ...
  5. Sorting everything out.

    by , 03-02-2009 at 01:07 PM (Travelling on the frugal path to Freedom)
    This month I did what I could to track our spending. I hung on to receipts, lost a couple, but i use the debit card, so i had records anyway.

    So once the little people are napping I'll be able write out what February budget was. And plan March.

    dh and I are booking a time to sit down and go over everything to see what we need to do. If we want to roll everything into refinance or just some of it. I have a much better idea than last time, now that all 4 will be in school, ...
