I love Fridays & What Looks Like a Tasty Drink Recipe...

Friday, July 29, 2011

I took another Friday off work....Yayyy! Got up and immediately ran 30 mins on the treadmill. I then went to look at a couple houses with my son. He graduated from college last year and was fortunate enough to get a good job. In fact, he just accepted a job offer at another company making almost twice as much as the last one! ... so it is time for him to move out. There is great real estate deals out there right now so he is going to take advantage of it.

Anyway, we are going to go to lunch next. Not sure if I am boating today or tomorrow because of the heat. Also, I found what looks to be a tasty drink recipe from Prevention Magazine. I am going to try this weekend. I have already shared it with my friend Riverderchi, but thought others may want to try it as well. Have a great weekend!
Here it is:

"Mango Mint Virgin Mojitos"

4 limes
40 mint leaves, thinly sliced
5 c mango nectar
5 c club soda

Cut lime in 12 thin slices and then squeeze remaining limes to get 6 tablespoons juice

Combine juice, mint, nectar and soda

Pour into 8 tall glasses filled with ice. Garnish each with lime slices.

NUTRITION: (per serving) 97 cals, 0 fat, 0 sat fat, 26 g carbs, 1 g fiber, 35 mg sodium

    Hi R.'s Mom! Thanks for the recipe! The only thing it's missing is the rum!! I love mojitos and I guess you can make it with any flavor fruit and splenda if you like it a little sweeter! Have a wonderful weekend and congratulations to your son.... great investment right now, real estate, plus you're right.. he needs a place to live! emoticon emoticon

A great day, advice needed on the art of drinking with friends...

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Got a lot done at work after jogging 30 mins this morning. Roxy was tired after two long walks yesterday, tried to get her walking this morning but she bee-lined back to the house!! I guess dogs know when to take a break better than us humans do.

Went out to dinner with friends -- I do that quite often, now that all of our kids are grown and out of the house. I have gotten quite good at not eating the appetizers everyone else orders. I order healthy dinners - tonight was ahi tuna - Yum!

My down fall when I go out to dinner is alcoholic beverages. I order light beer or red wine, I have learned not to order margaritas due to the high caloric content! It still would be good to order a less calorie drink/healthy drink; problem is I haven't found any I like. If anyone has an idea, let me know! I do drink a lot of water too -- in between drinks.

    Hi R's. Mom! Thanks for visiting my SP and commenting!! I have the same problem--drinking my calories! My BF drinks vodka with soda (club soda or seltzer water) and a splash of whatever juice (cranberry or orange). That's the lowest calorie alcoholic beverage. Another friend drinks martinis (low carb), but I like the sweet and creamy drinks. I saw a "skinny Margarita" already mixed, at the liquor store... and another friend recommended using crystal light and some of these flavored no calorie waters in the blender.... non alcoholic I like tea and lemonade with splenda. Enjoy, stay cool! emoticon emoticon Cheers!

7 day streak of running...

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

This morning I ran a 30 minute "jog" since I was pushing the speed up yesterday. It is 4 PM and my foot feels fine. I am stretching it out a lot before I get up.

I think I am going to have to get a bunion taken off of it in the late fall, should help me with running farther distances next Spring.

Have company coming in a little bit, headed out on the boat.

    Hi R. M., Thanks for visiting my blog... my condo has a beautiful pool--you can swim 9 or 10 strokes from one end to the other and there is rarely anyone else in it... a well-kept secret! Glad to hear your foot is all better! And congrats on that trip to Bermuda... I've never been and I want to hear all about it when you get back.. I'll be praying for no hurricanes! Have fun!! emoticon

Day 5 of Running...

Sunday, July 24, 2011

Running is going very well and my foot is still fine...Yayyyy!

I started to pick up the pace today (moved up to 5.7 mph). It is so hard to not hit the up speed button, but I don't want to hurt my foot again so I am taking it S-L-O-W-L-Y.

Went out to breakfast with my husband and took a two hour nap in the afternoon! I am pretty hyper, so that was unusual in itself. Must be the heat!

Going out on the boat with two other couples for dinner. I am going to order broiled fish. I am not wanting the weekend to end, it has been so nice to hang out with friends and family.

    Hi RoxyzMom, Thank you so much for the cupcake Sparkgoodie! That was very sweet of you. I'm so happy to hear you're running again. What did the doctor say about what caused your PF? Was it due to the intensity or duration of your running? Anyway, glad you're easing back in! I also enjoyed reading your 7 month update... you're doing great! Keep up the good work! emoticon
