Resolution Two: Be More Like a Housewife from the Fifties

Okay, obviously I’m being a little tongue in cheek about this but bear with me.

One of my goals for 2008 is to cook more tasty home-cooked meals, to keep our place cleaner, and to keep all of our personal records in good order.

I work hard on my career but sometimes things get out of balance on the home-front. In 2007, we spent a record amount of money (for us) on take-out, eating out, and—yep, you guessed it—Starbucks.

What’s the solution? We let our Costco membership run out. That was another source of financial drain. Even if we saved money on a few items, we spent so much more on things NOT on our list that it’s just not worth it. So the discount supermarket is looking like a better, though less trendy, way to save.

We stocked up on ingredients for lots of winter comfort food. And it’s working…I’m cooking more and wanting to go out less.

Which reminds me. Know any good, tasty winter recipes? I’m a little bored with all of our old stand-byes. Favorites for me are soups and anything you can stretch to last for more than one meal.

By the way, resolution number one is going great! For some reason bouncing on the trampoline is fun enough that I don’t dread my workout. I feel stronger, happier, and very up to date on afternoon talk shows. 🙂

Not everyone is thrilled about my workouts, mind you. The dogs lie on the floor and look forlorn like why can’t I do this outside with them? But I just bounce/jog/twist on!

And I’ve already lost a few pounds. Hooray!

How’s your 2008 exercise routine going? Has everyone gotten back on track?
