So you all know I am on a decluttering kick. I want it to be mind, body and house. I'm not sure how to achieve the mind part, but I am working on it. The body, well I have a secret to tell you all, I haven't been to the gym ALL YEAR! Aughh! My excuse has been that my doctor had restricted me from the gym as it was a big pain in my ass (literally) when I ran or did body pump or combat. Well, the gym restriction has been lifted, I am free to go back, however my doc did advise me not to run or do any exercise that with impact….in other words all the things I like to do. I now have to do yoga, which I like (but the time is just not convenient) and I guess yoga can help me with mind as well as body – right? I’m free to use the elliptical, (which I dislike) or to take spinning classes….spinning?!? I dislike spinning more than the freaking elliptical!! And I am always welcome to hang with the old ladies in the pool classes. (Shoot me now!) I guess I need a trainer to motivate me – any volunteers?
OK, back to what I meant to write about….since being on this decluttering venture I am also paying more attention to waste. One thing that I have noticed is how much food we waste . I am now going to TRY to stop wasting as much food in our house. Each Friday I am going to clean out our fridge and write down what we wasted. Maybe if I see it in writing I will be more prone to stop the waste. I will also write about how I kept from wasting things.
On Friday I cleaned out the fridge and this is what I threw out:
4 kiwis (way too soggy)
½ head of cauliflower (OH GOD, the smell)
½ green bell pepper (soggy)
2 slices prosciutto (slimy)
5 ready to cook flour tortillas (mold spots)
4 taco shells
¼ avocado (all brown – yuck!)
1 piece leftover chicken saltimbocca
2 servings of chili
Next week I will try to do better. I am also going to make it to the gym this week. Wish me luck!
