Well folks, i love blogging and I love writing and sharing my tales, however, things have gotten pretty crazy here at the Pinkham homestead, so I fear I have to take a break from blogging. I will still try to post useful sites and the occasional photo, but overall my writing is on hiatus!!! Thanks to all who have read and I hope to return sooner rather than later!!!
And so I completed day one of my couch to 5K amidst rain, mud and humidity. I cranked some tunes, rocked a new interval app that roared when I was done with the running and thundered when I should start. So tomorrow I strive for some walking and sculpting work as I strive to recreate this magic on Thursday. Even though my lungs were burning, my legs screeching and my knees creaking it felt really good. The same good that I get from gardening and canning. Here is too a long summer full of these moments and less creaks.
So tomorrow marks day one of my couch to 5k program and day one of my 5 days a week exercise unless death or dismemberment befalls me vow. I make no promises in how this will look or guarantees that I will be perfect, but I do know that when I look back on when I was feeling my healthiest it was when I was running. So this summer will add running to eating healthy fresh and local produce.
A burgeoning dandelion wine farm you ask? Oh no. That is our backyard. And every year I look onto this grassy wasteland of rocks and weeds hoping for inspiration. Every year I seek inspiration from the usual places; Martha, Country Living, Gardener’s Supply, etc. This year, we get serious. Stay Tuned: From Wasteland to Secret Garden in 2012.
Tonight, I reached a new milestone in my couponing career..I saved $100.
I was one of those annoying people who took 30 minutes to check out and caught many a hairy eyeball and exaggerated sigh that were thrown my way. Nonetheless, I stayed the course and knocked 25% off my bill. I had to have manager approval because I “saved too much”. I even picked up those annoying things that can be high ticket items like Flintstones vitamins, Venus razors and paper towels. I have also been stockpiling a few things here or there in an attempt to bring our overall budget down. With my organized binder, triple coupons and a grocery app, I have stocked my pantry and freezer, let my child pick out some special lunch things and did not break the monthly budget.
