Work on it Wednesday

Now that my bookshelves are looking spiffy, I think I should tackle my magazines. I tend not to get rid of them even when I know that I won't read them again. I need to though, especially since I recently started subscriptions to Real Simple, Southern Living and Family Circle. If I don't start purging some of these soon I will be overrun with magazines. I will either take them to the share box at the library or post them on Freecycle. First though, I need to go through them and see if I need any of the recipes or articles for inspirations. I really love the recipes in Southern Living, those people are my kind of cooks. No skimping on flavor or pretending the food is health food, lol. So, that's what I'll be doing today. Oh and I'm starting day one of my Couch to 5k running plan. That should count for work shouldn't it? I just downloaded the app for my iphone. It's super cool. You can run it over your itunes so you can use your own playlist and still hear the prompts that tell you when to walk or run. I hope it works, I'd really like to lose at least ten more pounds and I think the only way I can do it is to really change up my workout routine (notice how I didn't mention change what I eat). I've also started doing yoga to take the place of working out with weights (there's no kind of strength training like supporting your own body weight to kick your ass!). That should pretty much take up most of my day.

I have a giant binder w/ those plastic pocket pages that I tear out recipes, design ideas etc. and save them in. I make myself do it right after I read the issue and try never to have more than 5-8 magazines around at a time.

I wish I had just 10 to go---I need to get back to the gym. Vacation totally got me out of routine! Already can't wait to hear about your first race---you can totally do it!

We need to keep each other motivated. I love the giant binder idea. Wow, only 5-8 magazines at a time, I have a lot of work ahead of me!
