Jumpin' right in

Well, today I took the leap of faith. I emailed a few family and friends about this blog. I didn't include a lot of folks, just because I doubted they'd care or be supportive. "The Perfect Child" and I talked about this last night a little bit, so I decided the only way to get going with it was to bite the bullet (How many calories in a bullet? They're fat free, I assume.) and put this blog out there. Guess we'll see what happens.

Besides the leap of faith, I did what I've never really done before. I shopped the perimeter of the grocery store, with the exception of the frozen vegetables aisle. (Ok, so I did have to go buy paper towels, but I swear that was all.) I must say, it is true that all you really need is on the outer edges of the store. I also found that my grocery bill was substantially less. Good deal, I guess.

Hubby Dearest wants to join in on the "festivities" now, so this evening we will be taking a "post parandial" walk in the "hood". We live right on a wonderful walking path, so there is absolutely no excuse not to put it to use. Since the next week or so is supposed to return to cooler temps, we wanted to take advantage of what may be our last warm evening.

This will be the first weekend of our new "lifestyle" so I'm hoping to be successful in making good choices. I'll let you know.


  1. I've always wanted to try the "walk on the outside" routine. Something always sucks me back into the middle, though.

  2. You're such a show off! You're off and running, so to speak, with the blog and I'm just trying not to make burritos my one and only food group. Actually, I've done reasonably well as of late. I have yet to decide on my form of exercise for today - it's between my Jillian Michael's workout DVD and a quick run outside. Next step - researching farmer's markets in the 'hood. Hope the weekend treats everyone well! :)
