week 4 update

28 Oct

i have some very good news to report. this week was a total success. let’s do the math:

  • breakfasts bought: 1. SUCCESS!
  • breakfasts made: 4. SUCCESS!
  • cost on supplies for breakfasts made: $0! every ingredient was something that we already had around the house. SUCCESS!
  • time to prepare breakfasts for the week: 1 hour 5 minutes– but only 25 minutes were active time. the rest was waiting for the pie to finish baking. so, RELATIVE SUCCESS!
  • tastiness factor (scale where 1 is not tasty at ALL and 5 is exceptionally tasty): 4. i would have given it higher, but i don’t think i ground the steel cut oats enough and they were sort of shard-y. which was undesirable. but still, overall: SUCCESS!
this weekend (in a few hours!) i am going to indiana, and will not be back until sunday. i have what i think is a really good plan, though, for breakfast-preparation–and even a good plan for NEXT weekend’s indiana trip’s breakfast prep. no promises, but i am hopeful. i think that having a clear strategy is half the battle.
thank you for reading and for being so posi! remember: social support when i do well, social shaming when i do poorly! (eta: my apparently very hostile sister mentioned that if i don’t want people to essentially shun me “like the amish” then i should clarify that i mean more like social scolding. don’t be really mean.)

    i question you categorizing me as very hostile– i would call it being protective. i was looking for a better definition of the level of shaming you wanted; i didn’t want you to be surprised by meanness if you find yourself in a situation that requires social shaming.

    also, i think i mentioned tarring and feathering. is that out, too?

    tarring and feathering counts as hostile. you are contradicting yrself. but i would be interested to see what that looked like over the internet, so do yr worst!

      you say hostile, i say decorative. and this is why i’m looking for clarification as to the level of shame you’re seeking.

      keep coming to the hoosier state regularly and i won’t need to do it over the internet.

        tarring and feathering is okay on the internets only. preferably with animated gifs.
        though animated gifs might be a reinforcer… so i would like to request social support animated gifs as well, and please make any tarring and feathering ones strobe-y and hard to look at.

    You inspire me in 2 ways.
    1. you did it! And ate so well and yummy
    2. you write in your blog on the regular. I need to do this…

      thanks! i am glad i have a system where i have expected myself to write twice a week (the initial post and the update), because i am better at sticking to specific rules than general ones!
      and i am excited to read letters from space…

    Good job, Eliz!

    Also…I am sad you’re going away because I feel like I haven’t played cards with you in waaaay too long (since I fell asleep last weekend) and I will miss you. I hope you have a great trip! ❤
