Garden salads.... mmmmmmmmm

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Love this time of year. Hit the garden last night and picked chard, spinach, red leaf lettuce and green leaf lettuce and onion. Couldn't bring myself to whack at the celery yet- maybe next week when it gets a little bigger. Have birthday cake to bake tonight so after I get it in the oven I'll go pick fixins for tonight's dinner. I think I'll try to whip up some sort of dressing with walnut oil. Soooooo nice to have fresh picked salads again.

Ok, I've tracked food for the past 6 days... that may be a record for me. I'm going to try and continue to track and see what happens. I feel in general that I'm eating decent for me, guess once it's in writing we'll see for sure.

    I lapse a lot with logging my food. When I log, I learn what and what not to do. Plus, it makes me feel good and in charge. It's a win-win either way.

    I learn so much when I track. Good and bad. I agree, I tend to eat healthy but tracking, and especially measuring, is really an education for me.

Wonder if I can drop the "not enough time" nonsense and get focused for real this time. Contest at work- but I'm avoiding that as I don't want it to be a 30 day or 60 day thing. I need to make this a life-long focus for me now!
Sun is hitting the sky with a glow- time to go for a walk and enjoy it while I'm burning off calories!

    DECIDING is 90% of the process. The rest is just following your plan. Good luck.

Canning already!

Monday, February 17, 2014

Generally don't start canning until the snow is off the ground a month or so- but found some really nice asparagus on Friday. Mmmmm spicy pickled asparagus- have to love it! Between that and the Seed catalogs showing up, it must be Spring- right?
Ok, probably not since we're supposed to get another 3-6 inches of snow tonight. But, at least it will taste like Spring with the asparagus!


Last week of Insanity!

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

While I can't say that it has gone by quickly, I have noticed that I seem to be getting stronger and our half point weigh & measure did show some progress. I think I'll hit the gym starting next week to keep things moving in the right direction!
Stay dry in the rain everyone!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon on making it to your last week of Insanity! I am going to do the same after I finish Asylum. Except instead of the gym, I will do "Beast".

Have a great day!
