upcoming weekend +1

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Thursday night - I pick up the dozen tables for the TNR clinic at BARCS and two humane traps.

Friday - I trap 2 cats.

Saturday Morning - cut grass and pull out doggone thistle with neighbor in community garden. Mid-day I drop off the tables and cats at the TNR clinic. about 4PM I will assist with bleaching the clinic area: mopped and wiping equipment and tables with bleach water. then directly to the local Lutheran church for the auction.

Sunday - pick up 2 cats and break down tables for transport and delivery.

not exercise in the conventional sense but a workout just the same.


A plan for snacking

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Bolt house farms 15 oz drinks. - I can get these inexpensively at Sav-A-Lot. they are tasty, nutritious, low calorie and some have protein added.

Granola - homemade is best and less preservatives! baked Almonds, walnuts, rolled oats, sesame and honey.

Almonds - Raw or toasted. Good stuff right there!!

V8 juice - single sized can. poured into a glass with a little crushed pepper.

Rice Protein Bars - Biogensis Low Glycemic bars. Tasty and low carbs.

  Nice to know you get many low calorie foods at your place, we don't get such protein bars and so many variety at our place.

Days of Summer Challenge of the Week

Thursday, May 10, 2012

I have found that this challenge definitely has inspired me to do my best. I have been walking up and down the stairs more and sometimes with a full laundry basket. I have been interacting with more people on the spark site and it has been keeping me positive reading all the blogs and seeing the progress that everyone is making.

a challenge for Tuesday was Eat at the table, not in front of the TV/computer. Last night I thought about that and the bad habit it reinforces. I sat in the kitchen with my husband and we chatted while eating salad. I had every intention of making polenta but left work 1/2 hour late, train was at least 1/2 hour late so arrived home almost at 8PM. I did not want to go to the grocery store that late and then come home to cook.

I didn't even turn the TV on in the living room and spent a few minutes with one of our cats on my lap reading.

Enjoy the little things!

A beautiful day

Thursday, May 10, 2012

I started the day opening the front door to a sunny morning and a hummingbird. The butterfly bush is planted in the front of our house and the hummingbird was probably buzzing around it.

Then pulled into the commuter lot just as the train was entering the station so a .3 mile sprint through the parking lot and onto the platform .... in pumps.... to get on the train. Just as I regained my normal breathing back, we arrive at my station to alight and there is my bus so another run across the street.

So now I start the day with iced coffee that I made so nothing fancy and much lower calorie.


Attack of the killer tomatoes ... or just a visit to Panera

Monday, May 07, 2012

A grilled sundried tomato and mozzarella panini with fresh basil looks harmless enough and setting all lovely on the plate just awaiting the casual, hungry consumer to happen onto its wonderful aroma.

With mouth watering, I was thinking 450 maybe 500 calories that would leave me about 200 more for the day. the smell, the taste, it was love at first bite.

and then it happened, I went to the tracker and searched ... not there.... then to the Panera Bread website to look up the nutritional info. and what happened? I almost fell over in shock ..... 760 Calories! Acccck!!! It was a sneak attack!

The tomatoes, I blame the tomatoes!
Fresh tomatoes 10 cals,
Roasted tomatoes 45 cals
the sun dried tomato pesto 80 cals.

135 calories just for tomatoes!!

**sigh** their food is always so good but wow, what a way to blow up my tracker. well, ok, the mozzarella and Ciabatta added some calories too!
