That’s More Like It

I’ve felt more like myself today since the surgery than any other day so far. I did alot of housework, cooked, played with Lincoln … I even walked on my treadmill. I walked 2 miles at a 10% incline at 3.6 mph. Easy peasy! I got a chance to catch up on some of my Grey’s Anatomy while I walked. I actually felt so good that I tried to jog, but after about 5 seconds I realized that wasn’t going to happen yet. It felt really good to get the blood flowing again though and it did wonders for me mentally.

I’ve been in a funky depressed mood lately and that is totally not me. Today felt better.

Tonight I decided to try my hand at making my own Artisan Baguette bread. I wanted something to go with my super cheap Lentil Soup recipe that I made a few days ago. I’m probably the only 20-something year old that I know that owns a bread machine and uses it only a regular basis. I wasn’t prepared for the 5 hours the bread would take to make, so I took a short cut and let it rise for only 3 hours instead. It still turned out perfect!

Between the two of us, we ate an entire loaf! (The recipe made two loaves). I’m not sure of the per loaf price because I can’t for the life of me remember how much my bread flour cost, but I’m sure it worked out cheaper than buying a loaf at about $2-$4 each from the bakery.

Lentil soup, corn on the cob and bread. Kind of a strange combo, but it worked.

Here’s hoping tomorrow is even better than today. I *might* give the elliptical a shot soon.

    Okay, so if you’re the only twenty-something who uses a bread machine regularly, then I’m the only thirty-something who uses a bread machine regularly. 🙂 I make tons of pizza crust, cinnamon roll dough, dinner rolls, etc. I’ve had that bad boy for like 14 years–still going strong. 🙂

    I’m 25 and use my bread machine everyday! In fact I haven’t bought store bread in several months!
