I solemnly promise to paint my toenails by the end of November.
Hooray! Still going strong despite a week of vertigo inhibiting my ability to be active, the rice from stir fry week carb-loading my diet and my husband (-.-) buying three enormous bags of candy for Halloween.

Diet

This has been my cooking bible since I started losing the Sarah-ate-too-many-grilled-cheeses weight. We've only made one miss (chicken piccata sauce, so bitter!) and the rest have all been hits. Or, well, let me rephrase that. I think the rest have all been hits and Eric says they still "taste light." Even so, it can't be that bad as we've eaten dinner together almost every night since I started cooking from the book. I actually like this cookbook so much, I'd recommend snagging a used copy for cheap off Amazon if you're interested.

I'm also toying with the idea of reviewing some of the recipes (complete with photos) for the blog. Maybe. That's a lot of work for someone with not a lot of time right now.

Exercise
I started C25K using an app on my phone a couple weeks ago. I'm not progressing as quickly through it as I probably should be, but I've adopted a catch-as-catch-can attitude about exercise. I briefly considered buying a jogging stroller but then I remembered that I live in New England and winter is coming (apparently the Starks of Winterfell are also from New England). I had some serious sticker shock when I looked at the prices too, cripes! I guess I'll give it the winter before I decide whether or not I really want one. Cecilia hates to be contained (she's just gotta be able to move) and I'm not sure I'd enjoy pushing her in a jogging stroller while she is loudly expressing her displeasure with me.

Anyhow, now that you've made it to the end of this post, I will reward you with a (gratuitous) baby picture because this is my blog and I think she's cute.

Apples are tasty!
