Day 8, Week 2 and a MIRACLE!
Today was just 1.5 miles. Thank goodness we have a treadmill! It was a high of like 10 degrees today and very snowy. Running is such a good thing for my mental health. I was such a grouch after dealing with the kids and dog through the witching hour--I didn't even want to run. But I made myself go down there and now those endorphins have kicked in and I am MUCH better. Yes, working out is my drug of choice. That and Xanax. :)
And--wonder of wonder, miracle of miracles. The kids ate and LIKED dinner tonight!! I spent a good hour and a half last night planning out meals and menus for the next seven or so weeks (posted on left sidebar.) I tried to do things that were vegetarian (except I planned one meat meal a week) and healthy and kid friendly. Seriously, I might just have to publish a cookbook. You guys would all buy it, right?
Tonight we had...Pineapple Enchiladas! Sounds weird, but they are easy, good and most importantly--my kids even asked for seconds.
