    Elk? I don't have a single recipe for elk. :-) Mind you, they aren't exactly easy to come by over here.

exercise with Leslie

Saturday, November 15, 2014

I haven't been walking outside so put on a Leslie Sansone dvd for exercise. 5 fast miles. oh my. it was hard for me to get through mile one. I did it, though, and went on to mile two, then three, then four. just one more to go so I did.

I'm a bit sore this morning but have that great feeling of achievement. I even worked one of the miles with the band. Would you believe it snapped in half? I think the cold weakened it. Time for another!

    Mine split recently as well. I don't think they are built to last. It does feel good when you manage a complete five mile walk doesn't it? emoticon

    That's great! Isn't all the miles you rack up in one week worth it? I definitely think so! I haven't heard of the band snapping though. Interesting!

If shivering burns calories....

Thursday, November 13, 2014

.... I'd be skinny as a rail. it was negative two when I got up this morning.

I'm thinking shepherd's pie for dinner. i'll make it as healthy as I can with what I have on hand. I don't plan to drive to town in this weather so the taters will be real (not those wonderful faux ones made with cauliflower) Comfort food!

    Wow, you're colder than us. We saw 10 below a couple weeks ago, but we're close to 30 most of this month. If shivering burned calories, I wouldn't build a fire as often. Stay warm.

    Gosh, I haven't had shepherd's pie in years!! Having potatoes instead of cauliflower isn't going to make or brake your diet. Enjoy!

Seasonal Adjustments

Friday, November 07, 2014

We've been blessed with mild temps here in southern Colorado. in fact, up until yesterday I still had tomatoes on the vine, albeit green ones.

Soups are on! They can be my downfall as they simmer in the slow cooker. In keeping with the South Beach plan they are even healthier than last year's so it's ok to "taste".

Earlier this week it was lentil soup. it was served for dinner and a hit. I had planned on some soup lunches. It was a surprise to find hubby had taken the refridgerated soup to work with him for his lunches. Yesterday I had to make another batch.

On the exercise part of equation it has been taking care of things outside before the cold front hits. Until that passes it's back on the gazelle and videos.

I'm thinking this year's transition will be the easiest in a long time.

    A testament to your skill with soup that Hubby has nabbed it, so you have to make more. :-)

    We're already inside for the year here. I'm running on the treadmill. I need to try lentil soup to see if we like it. That's great that your husband likes it enough to take it for lunch. Sorry he took it and you didn't get it.
