Happy Healthy Monday
I hope everyone has had a great week. Mine was okay. I am very frustrated that people have not come look at the house. It’s been on the market now 3 week, today, and only 1 person walked through. Although I am so exhausted from the weekend that the house isn’t ready for showing so I am sure someone will call today and I will be in a pinch.
Due to the fact that we might have 2 mortgages for a time we have been cutting back on things. One thing that is going is the gym. We really haven’t used it all that much this past year and for a good workout you really dont’ need a gym. So we are cancelling that.
I really need to get back to eating healthier. The past month or so I have slipped because I was so busy getting the house ready that I didn’t have time to prepare meals. Now that most of that is done and we are in a waiting pattern I need to get back to it. I have no idea how much I even weight but I am sure it isn’t good.
Okay back to work! Hope you have a great day. Here is a recipe to try.
