First day back to work worked out well with food

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

Since I'm carb cycling, I'm supposed to eat every three hours. I decided to figure out what I could do to make that work. So I got food ready the night before for breakfast, set my alarm earlier, and when I got up I got eating that breakfast. Then, since I'm up so early, I started preparing my next two meals for while I'd be at work. I used my nutri-bullet to make protein veggie shakes for those, and it worked out well getting them at the three hour intervals I needed to. Yay, success!

a short one

I did my 5lb kettlebell workout (47 minutes) today. What a workout. My heart was beating so hard in much of it! Sweaty! Good workout.
I found out today that I'm to start work with a new student tomorrow, and I'll be starting work where my daughter works! So I'm to help a student learn a job where she already has a job. So funny. :)

    Sounds like a hard work out, I have never done those, maybe someday, need to change things every now and than.
That is funny, have fun teaching her the job.
Have a great day tomorrow too!! emoticon emoticon

Today I made wild grape jelly (pics) and skillet granola

Sunday, September 29, 2013

Hubby helped me get some much higher up wild grapes last evening, so I was busy trying to get all those little grapes plucked.

Then I cooked them, one batch at a time, rigged up a way for them to drip from cheese cloth into a pan and got some jelly made! Only one jar did not seal, and so hubby can start using that one right away in his sandwiches for work. I did taste a little bit and it was quite good. :)

Oh yes, and my fingernails are still stained by grapes.
The granola that I made for myself today was from a friend's recipe. She uses 2 tbsp. butter, 1/2 Tbsp sesame seeds, a cup of oatmeal, 1/2-1 tbsp. sunflower seeds, 2 Tbsp chopped Walnuts, 1/4 c. honey, and anything else you want such as coconut or whatever. She browns the sesame seeds in a skillet, and melts the butter next, adds in everything else and stirs for a minute. Then her family eats it nice and warm like that for a snack.
I changed it up a bit. I used maple agave to make it less glycemic, but it sure was sweet still (like the way I followed her recipe the first time I ever made it). I didn't use sesame seeds. I did add in dried cherries. Yum. Instead of butter (since I'm allergic to it) I used spray butter (took off the cap and poured it into the tbsp.).

I got my vitamin D

Saturday, September 28, 2013

It was 70 today, but the sun was so nice and strong, even though it was a cool wind, I went out there dressed for the coolness and got into my lounge chair and just soaked up the rays. Oh it felt good. After a bit a chipmunk yelled at me too much so I gave it up, but I had thoroughly enjoyed the time I had out there. :)
I did pick maybe a gallon of kiwi and some wild grapes prior to that. The kiwi is in jars in the fridge. I hope to make some jelly with the grapes tomorrow.

    Sounds like a fun day, I too went out and sat in my rope chair, and soaked in the sun. Was bothered by all the crows eating all the walnuts that are dropping now.
I will have to gather some soon, just too lazy today.
You have a good Sunday, my friend, hugs, Jackie

I got these pickled veggies yesterday, and remembered Dr. Oz saying pickled (vinegar anyway) veggies help you with losing weight. I ate some and it felt like I'd had too much salt. Sure enough, the sodium is high enough for one serving, and I had two. Should have paid more attention. Ugh! So I'm going to try to add in lemon juice and onion for my last meal of the day, since they are natural dieretics, and hope that this doesn't affect my weigh in. Ah well!

    Love pickled beets and agree the sodium can be a bummer when you're weighing in before you've had a chance to diurese.

    Cucumbers are a natural diuretic too. If you eat them before bedtime, take a pillow in the bathroom.

I read that about pickled things too, BUT I got very ill eating pickled bologna as small child,, cannot stand the smell of it or anything but actual pickles now.
