Cooking oatmeal works 100% better when the burner is on.
But I used my wait time wisely! I packed my lunch. Though while doing that, I noticed that the Spousal Equivalent had taken the veggies I was looking for.
I also used the wait time to look at my April goals. I'm doing well with the exercise. Three times a day I take the pup out for a very long, brisk walk. I get exercise. She gets happy! Yesterday I changed things up. The SE was playing disk golf at the local park, so I took the pup there for our walk. Instead of the usual 15 minutes, we walked for about 45 minutes. We never found the SE, but we got good exercise.
Today is weigh in day. I'm a little nervous. Between yesterday's pizza (all points accounted for), and the free food I over ate. But whatever happens tonight, I'll get back to exercising and eating right.
