Woo, two days in a row!

I suppose I really should keep this as a journal - that's what it's for, right? But I always think "I need something to say before I post," which means I end up not posting anything much at all.

Gym: I'm getting back to more of a weights regime, realizing the lessons I'd learned back when I first started this, that the weights portion of the workout is the most important, especially for weight loss and that all-important "fitting into clothes." I'd let it slide when my shoulder started to hurt, paradoxically, now that I'm lifting again, the pain is less and it bothers me less often.

Of course, being October, people are gearing up for the holidays, what with goodie days and bake sales and birthday parties and so on and so forth. I've been eating a lot, so it's very good that I'm working out strongly again. Now, to keep it up...

I was too tired yesterday morning to get up and get going, but I did do so this morning, at least. I've been very tired lately, and I'm not really sure why - except for the odd cat problem, I'm sleeping pretty well.

But, speaking of food - making cookies, did make tsatsiki, fried chicken thighs for dinner (in olive oil, at least) - found some lovely organic crackers/chips, which did a nice thing for me as, earlier today, I was lamenting the fact that all-natural, organic chocolate toaster pastries are not as good as Pop-Tarts... (and I still love white bread and iceberg lettuce, so there).

I need to make up a playlist for our trip (driving to California songs) and for the wedding; we figure it'll be easiest to hook the iPod to the stereo and just hit "shuffle," but we want to clear off all my annoying country songs and fill it with classic rock and such...

Dragons... Adopt one today! // Adopt one today! // Adopt one today! // Adopt one today!

did make tsatsiki,

Mmmm... tsatsiki... I especially like it with those thin, crispy rice crackers.

fried chicken thighs

I've rediscovered my love for chicken legs lately... I was really surprised that legs tend to fit into my diet better than chicken breasts.

found some lovely organic crackers/chips

I really like the Multigrain crackers at Trader Joe's... and if you're not picky about them being organic, I've recently discovered All Bran crackers -- they're incredibly yummy! Or, at least, the Garlic & Herb ones are.

I was lamenting the fact that all-natural, organic chocolate toaster pastries are not as good as Pop-Tarts...

I'm so glad I'm not the only one! Once a year or so I get a craving for either the chocolate or the cinnamon Pop-Tarts and nothing else will do. The organic ones just don't have quite the same texture.

I got some of those Kashi TLC crackers for it - I'll see how they go.

Legs really aren't too bad if cooked properly, and I've recently rediscovered my love of dark meat, too. It's nice and juicy!

No, they don't have to be organic; these ones just happened to be. I do like the multigrain ones; mostly I've found good crackers in the "healthy" category, but I'm a cracker fiend, and I'll try just about any crackers trying to find ones I like. I had to give up any with HFCS, but it really wasn't hard, since there are some really GOOD crackers out there! Trader Joe's and Sprouts both have some nice brands, and now regular stores are carrying them, too. (I like Carr's, especially the Rosemary flavor!)

I thought I'd be good, try the "healthy" ones... but having toasted them and eaten them, I just wasn't very impressed. And it doesn't save ANY calories, since these have the same count as Pop-Tarts (210 calories PER PASTRY... who doesn't eat both of them, I ask you?).

cookies is good. Gram just whipped up 18 dozen pizelles for that wedding next week.

I really want a pizelle iron so I can try making them; a friend of mine at work has one and she says they go fast, once you get the batter made.

yeah and you can sit at the table and do it. which is good since she's 93. she has a gullet iron too (the waffle ones)

Hurrah for working out and for plans for the California drive! :-))
