Bicycle ride along new road with bike lanes

Saturday, September 13, 2014

I live in a pretty hilly part of Tennessee. Generally, it's a hard place to ride a bike. Most roads are: two lane; no shoulder; and contain plenty of blind curves and steep hills. Last winter a new road was built that starts two blocks from my house. This road is my kind of bicylist's dream. It's very lightly travelled, pretty straight (wich means no blind curves), gentle rolling hils and best of all....a very wide marked bicycle lane on each side of the road. It also has bicycle lane signs every 100 yards or so to remind drivers to share the road.


The reason I'm writing about this road is that I finally got to ride my bike on it today. It takes about an hour to do the whole thing. It's going to be a great training road for preparing for longer rides. I can't believe how lucky I am to have such a safe, easy place to ride so close to my house now.

Oh happy day!

    Oh so glad, we have a very beautiful drive that has lots of blind curves, driveways etc. but many bike it. There are no sides and also one side is against the huge lake. I love going for drives but we hate it cos the cyclists have to stay on road and it is hard to pass them safely, and then in winter it is not fun cos of ice lol So glad you have a safe place nearby! you are doing so great!

Canoeing for the first time this year!

Friday, September 12, 2014

I seem to be squeezing summer into September since I was so fatigued for much of the summer.

Today, hubby and I went canoeing for the first time this year. It was so nice to be out on the water. We went lake canoeing today. The water was as smooth as glass and I was amazed at how fast we glided over the water. Unfortunately, neither one of us took a camera with us....so no pics, but lots of wonderful memories.

Life is good!

My favorite canned soup!

Thursday, September 11, 2014

Do you ever have those days when you don't feel like cooking, but want to get something warm and healthy in you? I do....particularly in the evening. Last winter, I discovered this great soup by Amy's Kitchens. I love it!


Since I've found this soup, I always try to keep a can or two of it on the shelf for emergencies. Sometime I add edamame to it.

What's your favorite healthy emergency meal for when you are too tired to cook?

    that looks like a great soup.

When I make stir fry, soups and salads I always make extra to eat. Baked sweet potatoes are easy too (with the stir fry on top)

I have a soup recipe that if you use canned food it takes as loong as opening the cans (around 20 minutes to cook)

I have used McDougall soup cups.

    I like the Campbell's Homestyle butternut squash soup.

I also like the Weight Watcher's Smart Ones frozen mac and cheese; it's the best tasting frozen mac and cheese I have every tried, and it's also easy on my tummy if I'm having a "bad tummy day".

If I know ahead of time there is going to be a day when I'll probably be too tired to cook, I will plan ahead and make something from scratch with planned leftovers.

    Yum! Thanks so much for the tip!

My go-to meal for when I am crazy hungry and really need food right now is two toasted slices of Ezekiel bread (so much protein in every slice!) then I cut up some extra sharp cheddar and melt the whole thing in the microwave for twenty seconds. Less than one minute of prep time!

FLORIDASUN 9/12/2014 11:16AM

    Yum...I love Amy's products but have never tried this soup. It sounds like something I'd love though so will hunt it down!

My fav meal is soup that I have frozen in cup and 1/2 portions if I'm SUPER hungry I'll have 2 of them but that's not often.

My FAV soup is a Fast Metabolism Diet one called Turkey Lentil soup. If you want the recipe I'll be happy to share....or you might find it on Haylie Pomroy's Fast Metabolism web page.

I also adore another Turkey Cabbage soup that I got from Dr. Oz...yummy and QUICK...I make double batches and freeze. I SO hate cooking every day..what a drag!

We are really bad about walking to the end of the block and getting sub sandwiches or Chinese food when I don't feel like cooking. We have a great, walkable neighborhood, but that means that takeout is really easy to get.

  I have liked almost everything of Amy's that I have tried. I avoid canned food, unless the can is BPA-free, though. If I am too tired, too busy, too whatever to cook, it tends to be a yoyo meal (as in, you're on your own).
But my favorite grab-something-quick-and-easy is usually a handful of nuts and a chunk of some kind of cheese.

Actually, my emergency meal plan is that I never cook just one meal at time.. I double everything, and half goes into the freezer for those 'too tired to cook' nights... or in our case, too busy to cook.

    I have a pressure canner, so I can safely can meats & vegetables. We have a pretty good stock of turkey matzo soup. I've canned split pea soup, beef stew, and chili in the past; I'm looking forward to putting up more this fall. What I love about making it myself is I control what goes into it. Generally, my home-canned soups have half the sodium that the commercial ones do, but they taste just fine (and sometimes just as salty).

The next time Zaycon foods offers their super lean ground beef (7% fat), I plan to buy a case and can it. I bought forty pounds of chicken breasts from them last spring and canned most of it. The advantage of having this stuff canned is that you can throw dinner together by opening a few jars. I have a friend who has fibromyalgia and chronic pain issues; I bought her a pressure canner last year because I knew it would change her life. When she has good days, she can preserve stuff so that when the bad days come there's always something readily available to feed her household.

I keep a few jars of home-canned soups & meat in my desk drawer. Sometimes nothing hits the spot like soup!

I don't freeze this stuff because our only freezer is the one attached to our refrigerator. A chest freezer is on our list of things we want, but a new truck and a new event bike for me are at the top of that list. emoticon

Biking Again!

Monday, September 08, 2014

Bicycle riding is my favorite way to exercise. I haven't been able to do much of it this summer due to severe fatigue from Epstein Barr virus and walking pneumonia. My fatigue has been lifting significantly over the last couple weeks and on Sunday, I went for my first bike ride since mid June.

My husband and I went to Chattanooga and rode on their beautiful river trail. I planned on biking for an hour so after riding for 30 minutes in one direction, we turned around and biked back to the car. That turned out to be a 10 mile ride. It was hot and I was sweating like crazy, but I felt great. I didn't wear myself out.

I don't have a pic of me on the bike, but here's one of me on a pretty bridge along the path.


Fortunately, the weather stays pretty good for biking here until November, so I will still have quite a few chances to get more riding in.

Hugs,
Kay

Hiking again!

Friday, September 05, 2014

This summer has been an odd one because I was hampered by a lot of fatigue. I'm getting better now. It turns out I had Epstein Barr virus. It's very similar to mono. I'm getting over it now and have been able to do a lot more in the last few weeks.

I've been hiking several times this past week. Something I love to do. Here are so photos.

This first one is from our local state park (Cumberland Mountain State Park in Tennessee) . They have really nice hiking trails there. It was taken on Labor Day.


This picture is from a state park in Kentucky (Carter Caves SP). It's of my husband and his best friend from high school. We are at the mouth of a large cave here.


After taking these hikes, I decided to get some trekking poles. They just came yesterday and I got to try them out this morning. We did the same hike that I did on Labor Day and it was amazing how much more confident I was and how much faster I was able to go over the rocky trails.

Life is good!

    Good job, Kay! I bet you'll love those trekking poles! I sure like mine.

So glad you're feeling better and getting to do more. You'll have a beautiful fall there, won't you? Great time to hike. I hope you just keep feeling better & better every day.

Somehow I lost my subscription to your page. I haven't stopped thinking of you and sending you affection & good wishes though!

Have a fab week-end!
Nancy

    I was thinking of you the other day; how happy I am that you are doing so well. I'd call you again, but can't find your number. Big hug.
