This blog is now going to be turned over to a diary of getting back to healthy. Following a long convalescence from TWO back-breaks and a ruptured disk, I got into some very, very lazy habits. Clinical depression does not help.
WAKE-UP CALL: I..******I****** have a varicose vein. It's deep, at least, and not one of those nasty, ugly, ropey things. Still, it hurts, and it's dangerous. I have really let myself go!
First day back on did WWers...pretty well with it. I have bought a new freezer and am going to put up a lot of DIY "Lean Cuisine"-type entrées and will no longer have the excuse of hating to stand on my head, and pull everything OUT of the little chest-type freezer to find something. I can keep long-term items in there.
I made a delish tomato soup today! NO fat involved! I used a bunch of tomatoes I got a "deal" on over in Camden and added carrots, peppers, LOTS of garlic and spinach. Grated a half an apple into it and used some beef broth. have about five servings of it to go straight into the new freezer. Also cooked up a little beef roast.
This is entirely my own fault and intend to call all my resources to muster.
