I forgot to paint my toenails. Sorry, not sorry.

Diet
I made great progress this month. I learned from my mistake; no more stir fry week, more like one stir fry of appropriate protein per week instead. I'm getting a little tired of the Cook's Illustrated cookbook that I linked in my previous post, however. One can only make the same dishes for so many months in a row! I do have two Cooking Light cookbooks that I'm going to have to pull off the shelf and pore over.

As far as this upcoming month goes, I'm not overly worried about office treats and other festive food-based gatherings because I only work three days a week. It's so much easier to avoid treats when you aren't physically present.

Exercise
I'm still plugging along through the C25K app that I bought forever ago. I've only got a couple more weeks left on it, but I think that I'm going to buy the 10K app after I finish. At this point, my only fitness exercise goal is to just do it (while wearing my Nike gear). I'm not focusing on any numbers (pace, weight lifted, time, etc) because all my energy is directed towards keeping the diet aspect on target. I learned long ago (like four years ago, when I posted about it but I can't find that post...) that if I spread my resources too thin across multiple simultaneous goals that I achieve nothing.

Well, since I did it last time, I figure why not do it again. Here's a Cecilia picture at the end of the post:
