making goals happen.

this blog is...very underused. i absolutely love reading blogs. i subscribe to over 30. i really feel as though i need to contribute more to the community in terms of sharing stories, thoughts, recipes, and ideas.
#1: post more often. at least once every three days.
#2: take pictures with camera i received last hannukah. upload to blog!
#3: add recipes (revamped corn soup! killer chili! dessert hummus!) in posts.

i have some goals that are also not related to the blog!
#1: make it to the gym on tuesday, wednesday, thursday, and friday. try out the rowing machine. really break a sweat and get worn down from these gym visits.
#2: pack lunch and snacks for work this week (monday, tuesday, and saturday).
#3: relax! run around less. :)

i really feel as though if i put these goals "into writing" i will be much more likely to follow through with them. here's hoping!

do writing goals or making lists help you follow through with responsibilities?

ready for a souper week!

i just did my meal planning for the week and i'm really excited! i've got these sweet potato muffins in the oven. i added pecans and craisins to the mix and i hope they turn out well.

last week was the coldest one we've had in a while. i've been craving a hearty soup to warm up with, so i added three to my meals this week. coming my way tonight is this quick corn stew. i love creamy corn chowder, and this looks like a much healthier but still satisfying version. i'll be making a spicy and flavorful red lentil stew tomorrow afternoon and then this quinoa, white bean, and kale soup from PPK that i've been meaning to make for a while. it looks very comprehensive in terms of health benefits, not to mention really flavorful and full of ingredients i always have on hand.

here's hoping for a great week full of soups!

worried & disappointed.

i have a lot of anxiety about tomorrow. i have three novice debaters making their debut, and three more 'experienced' ones that really aren't very prepared. ughhhh. /rant /fingerscrossed

i didn't even find time to write a 'farewell vegan mofo' post. school is consuming some time, i've been recently promoted at work, and then there's the two other jobs i have. sadface. when this semester ends (in less than two weeks!!) i will have so much more free time! :)
