Amidst my studying frenzy last week, I had to take a break on Friday. And what better way to take a break than baking?!
I made these pumpkin muffins – so good, and SO easy!!
Ya know what I love about allrecipes.com? Well, I love a LOT of things – but I just recently found out that you can type in how many servings you want, and it will automatically calculate how much of each ingredient you need! Genius, I say. Yes, yes…I know I could do the calculations in my head. But sometimes I’m just too lazytired to think about it.
With taking a couple classes + work, I really feel like it’s thrown my world around a little. I’m sleeping less, I have less time to cook/make meals, almost no time to watch TV (!!!!), and less time to spend with friends and family.
So I figured it would be good for me to write down some goals that I have .
- Swim once a week - Swimming is sooooo good for you – but I just don’t naturally like it! I feel a-maz-ing when I’m done, though – I feel strong and lean ALL over. So, I’m going to swim a minimum of one night a week. I know that’s not a lot, but it IS for someone who hates getting cold (and wet!) and who doesn’t really like to swim.
- Eat more veggies - I eat toooons of fruit. I have one apple + one banana a day, and snack on grapes, melons and berries. Now veggies??? I have a harder time snacking on these. But I do LOVE carrots and cucumbers…and of course, avocados. So my goal is to bring carrots and cucs to snack on while at work.
- Get more sleep! I feel like this is a goal for a lot of people. I think we all know why sleep is good (I, for one, am much happier when I’m rested!), but here are a few important reasons:
- Make at least one new recipe a week – I tend to do most of my cooking on the weekends and then eat leftovers for lunch/dinner during the week. I’ve found a few good recipes that I keep falling back on - which is okay, but I miss trying new things! I’m a definite creature of habit and it’s easy for me to fall into ruts with my eating (understatement). So my goal is to attempt one new recipe a week.
What about you? Do you have any short-term goals for yourself right now?
I’ll report back as to how I’m doing with these goals – wish me luck!
