Made some good recipes tonight

Lemon-Dill Green Beans and Spaghetti Squash with Veggies and Mozzarella (a Spark recipe)
I wanted something different to do with the spaghetti squash that I was thrilled to find last week so I did a search on Spark recipes and found that one. It was so good! The cheese on top made it crisp. This recipe is a keeper if we can find spaghetti squash again.

I also made the Lemon Dill green beans which was another yummy one. I found it before Thanksgiving but I like to try recipes before I feed them to guests. It was really good.

I'm on a 5 day streak for walking outside, not counting my weekends of Thursday and Friday. Today I only got in 2 laps for 1.36 miles in 30 minutes. I just couldn't get my stride on and keep up with it. But I did do a 10 minute Sparkpeople video for core and a 20 minute full body video. No WATP today.

Monday starts another Leslie Sansone Walk challenge that I signed up for so maybe I can keep up with that.
This weeks challenge for the Cranberries team is tracking all my food and keeping track of calories burnt. Plus give team mates a goodie and posting on their pages. GO CRANBERRIES!

Have a GREAT day!

    Whoa, that spaghetti squash looks downright wicked! I'm gonna have to check that out. I just posted a pasta fagiole recipe that we named Pasta Fajolly because it looks like Christmas colors when it's done! I posted a pic, too.

    Both of these recipes look delicious! I'm definitely going to try the spaghetti squash recipe, thank you for the picture and recommendation! I just made a new recipe yesterday, Creamy Butternut Squash & Apple Soup. It was delicious and perfect for this cold weather! Good luck with your walking challenge, and let's go Cranberries!

Apple Cranberry Skillet Pancake

Friday, December 03, 2010

I threw this together today and entered it into my Spark recipes but it didn't "share" on my friend feed. It's in my recipe file. I had a couple apples and cranberries left over so i threw them together and poured pancake batter over it and baked it in the oven. It was pretty good.

My Cranberry Biggest Loser team challenge started today. This week we are supposed to track all our food and meet our calorie level. I know I can meet the tracking thing but I have trouble meeting my calorie levels.

My goal is to keep up with the challenge, log in with the team and do the best I can to try and lose 5 lbs.

Today we moved some furniture, re arranged other furniture, vacuumed, did laundry, cleaned, went up and downstairs several times so I did get in some exercise.

A new week begins tomorrow!

November 29

Monday, November 29, 2010

It was a good day today. I got up early for a change and went for a walk. The temp was 73F at 6:45Am but I went back to bed for another hour. When I went out it was 76F. I did 45 minutes walk for 2.06 miles. It wasn't a record but it was pretty good for me. Then this afternoon, I did another 25 minutes of Walk Away the pounds, a SparkPeople Desk workout video and another few dumbbell workouts.
I now set my alarm clock for 7:35AM so I can get up and enjoy more walks.

Made another good turkey salad recipe for dinner that I got from Kraft foods website. It was pretty good!

Back to exercise today

Saturday, November 27, 2010

Finally today after 4 days of no exercise, i got back upstairs to get moving again. I got in 45 minutes of walk awayu the Pounds video and 20 minutes dumbbell exercises.

I only gained 1 lb since Wednesay so I gave myself a pat on the back for that, it's no excuse to say "ok, have the extra piece of pie" either so I passed on that.
Tomorrow night I'm looking forward to our favourite Turkey salad burritos.
