Starting the Week

My cough is much better, but I was so exhausted that I let myself sleep rather than go to the gym this morning. Tomorrow, though, me and the gym have a date.

After church yesterday we cleaned all afternoon and evening, including taking down our Christmas tree. Christmas decorating/undecorating includes lugging our multiple Christmas bins up from the basement to our second floor apartment and back down. We also wrangled the tree outside and to the curb for the trash people to pick. I also did about 7 loads of laundry (in the basement). So basically, there were a lot of stairs yesterday.

Plus, I deep-cleaned the kitchen and emptied the litter box (which is always a joy). I started feeling sleepy at about 10:30 and slept straight through until 7:30, when I got up in mild protest.

Tonight I plan to put some of the stuff that is being stored in the guest room back in the living room, and also clean the bathroom. And maybe the dining room.

I made a point of cooking some big batch food this weekend so I would have lunches all week and not have to pick from the limited eating out options in downtown Providence. Also, spending $6 a day on soup seems pretty ridiculous. Saturday I made some chili in the crock pot. Note to self: more chili powder. And maybe some cayenne. Yesterday I made black eyed peas, since I didn't get to make them for the new year.

Now I have little containers all prepped for lunches this week (and probably part of next week). Both meals are full of fiber and veggies and made by my own hand so I know they're healthy. I love it when I plan ahead.
