March Wrap Up and a Free Book (Zagat America’s Top Restaurants 2012)

First and foremost – I didn’t win the lottery 😦  I bought my first lottery ticket ever and had a really good feeling about it, LOL.  But I’m not too upset about it because OHIO STATE IS IN THE FINAL FOUR!  For those of you not keeping track, the game is tonight at 8:45 so break out your Go Bucks cheer.  If Ohio State beats Kansas I will lose my yearly bet with Jason.  If Ohio State loses then my consolation will be that I still have a chance to win.  Oh, the irony.

My husband received a book for the holidays and I’m passing it on to one of you because as the parents of a 1 1/2  year old we are not eating out at fancy places and we are not traveling.  If you would like the brand new copy of Zagat’s America’s Top Restaurants 2012 just leave a comment with your email address on this post and I’ll draw a name at the end of the month.

So, I only read 5 books and am feeling like I’m in a bit of a reading slump right now. They never seem to last long which is a good thing since this is a bookish blog!  I’ve also been in a slump as far as accomplishing my goals.  I’ll post them only because I want to keep track, but if I were you I’d just skip right over the rest of this paragraph!  Daily goals 10,000 steps (19/31), 8 glasses of water (6/31), daily meditations (27/31), a note to Jason (8/22), One line mom diary (31/31). Weekly goals vegetarian (6/8), letter (2/4).  I didn’t keep track of my cardio this month.

So, my goal for the month is to get back on track!  And I’m adding 2 things – read Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser and to give up drive-thrus for the month. I’ve always eaten fast food but since I’ve been a mother I drive thru somewhere at least once a day.  This is often the 5 minutes that I have to eat in relative peace and I need to break the habit.  I believe this and lack of sleep are the two biggest things keeping me from losing the baby weight.  I need to tape before and after photos on my dash for motivation.

The other thing on my radar this month is World Book Night on April 23.  I’ll be passing out 20 copies of The Glass Castle.
