Trying Something New

I have made arrangements to try out dragon boating on Friday. I'm a bit scared of how badly this will beat me up. But I'm trying to talk myself into going anyway. One of my voice students is on a high school team and told me about it. She said I could easily join in on an existing adult team for their practice if I wanted to try it. I always liked doing the row machine at the gym, so we'll see how this works out. I'm scared and excited at the same time, and I think this may be a way to boost my exercise with something new.

In other news, the veggie diet is on a decline. We started out our month ahead of our finances and as soon as we started to feel comfortable enough to spend without making sure we could afford it, our extra money magically disappeared from our bank account. This has left me unable to make my much enjoyed small trips to the grocery store. I usually have a stroll around the new seasons two or three times a week to pick up a few oranges and maybe an avocado or some tomatoes or I go to trader joes and get a bag of mushrooms or some greek yogurt.

Well, when we're running low on fresh foods, we end up having to revert to our pantry and freezer. Which is full of grains, pasta, and meat. Today I cut up the last few little potatoes I had left into a crock pot of pork chops. I didn't want to eat it, but beggars can't be choosers. So my diet is on a bit of a financial pause until I can afford to replenish my food supplies.

At least today I went on a nice 20 minute walk in the beautiful weather. I suppose that could make up for the pork chops and the cookies I managed to put together from what I had in the pantry! I suppose.

And for a final teaser, I will post another update on the status of my chiropractic progress tomorrow. I have some interesting news about how my back may be affecting my weight loss.
