life and times of a lazy cook

figuring out life and my way around the kitchen, one misadventure at a time.

non-scale victories.

so it’s monday after a lazy weekend, and well i’m still feeling lazy. but luckily i’m still on winter break so i can afford to be a little lazy.

the weekend was quite enjoyable, i saw an old friend, discovered the best piano bar in milwaukee, relaxed and started a new (for fun) book.

i had a good eating day, complete with my oh-my-god-i’m-so-obsessed-with-this salad: baby spinach, baby romaine, scallions, goat cheese, garlic dressing and a lovely pear on top. simply amazing! dinner was straight up baked tofu and roasted cauliflower and brussels sprouts with homemade garlic salt i got in my stocking. yeah, there’s a reason i put my laziness in le blog title.

so onto those non-sale victories–i realized for the entire weekend i was pretty much living in a pair of boxer shorts i bought senior year of college that used to be to small for me. i mean like, uncomfortably too small. as in i didn’t wear them until about a month ago.

well i’ve been wearing them around the house for a few days now (i TOLD you it was a lazy weekend) and they are maybe even verging on too big. victory!

second nsv (abbreviations are just easier sometimes)–my legs. seriously. if you want great legs, start running. i’m not yet completely happy with other parts of my body (*cough* love handles *cough*) but the legs, i’m SO good with.

third nsv–i totally got checked out at the gym on sunday. this just made me happy because no make-up, post run hair, spandexed alice does not expect to get checked out.

in other news i officially declared my commitment to reach my goal weight by may on the website stickK.com, which i absolutely adore. you pick a goal–it can be weight loss, quitting smoking, working out 5 days a week–WHATEVER and then set a time limit to reach your goal. you check in every week and if you fail to reach your goal you have to give money to a charity you disagree with. excellent motivation!

so for the rest of the night, i’ll be soaking in the bachelor and pretty little liars, probably just pretending to get reading done. sounds perfect!
