Super Saturday!

Saturday, April 23, 2011

I took an hour walk today with a pedometer. I walked over 10,000 steps! That is good news! Now I am going to track my daily steps on the Fitness Tracker. It is fun to find a new way to get fit. I am curious to see how many steps I take at work with the pedometer on.

I will continue my super day by making some Easter SparkRecipes in preparation for the big, healthy meal tomorrow. My son is coming tonight and I am excited.

Happy Easter!

    You are quite a fast walker! I can't wait til I can walk again and get back to using my pedometer. I think it feels a little lonely!

    If you haven't planned every recipe yet, you should try the crustless spinach and feta quiche. I made that last year and it disappeared fast! It was so yummy! Have a great Easter!

    Happy Easter! How many steps is a good average? I am on my feet all day at work as I am a teaching assistant to a class of 6 year olds. I wonder how many steps I do a day? emoticon

FRIENDly Friday!

Friday, April 22, 2011

Today was a nostalgic day. We saw old friends from over 30 years ago. The couple came to see us on their vacation and catch up on old times. We all used to live in Italy. We had our babies in the same week and have many memories to share. Our babies are turning 30 this year! We all look younger and better of course. We did discuss healthy eating choices over an Italian lunch. It made my day to see our friends again. Life is short and it is friendships that make it last longer.

    The question is did you make healthy menu choices?

    Sounds like it was a real heartwarming treat. The best kind - no calories!
Have a wonderful Easter Weekend.
Fondly,
Nancy

Terrific Thursday!

Thursday, April 21, 2011

My son is coming to visit for Easter. I am excited! I bought the ingredients for a Spark Easter dinner today. I am using the recipes from SparkRecipes.com. I hope he likes it even though he doesn't need to lose weight! It will be a guaranteed healthy meal.

I also bought a bouquet of spring flowers for the living room and a basil leaf plant. I will cut the fresh basil leaves when I an cooking. I am feeling Italian...even though I am not. I live in Italy and the food is so fresh. They only sell fruits and vegetables that are in season at the grocery store. So we eat what they sell...the Spark way.

    All perfect reasons to celebrate! Glad you had a wonderful day! I would be thrilled to have a scale that lights up when I lose. Hell, I'd love to have one that knows which direction to move! My scale hasn't moved in three weeks! Thanks for sharing something positive, and good luck on your weight loss journey!

    Thanks for your support. The digital scale is made by TEFAL and is called Luminance. We are Americans who teach at an International School in Italy and bought it here. So I don't know if you can find it in Texas. My sister is a teacher outside Houston, TX.

Tuesday Tidbits!

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

It is Spring Break and the sun is shining. I got up this morning with time on my hands. I threw together the ingredients in the crockpot for the SparkPeople recipe for slow cooking lasagne. Then my husband and I took an hour walk, sat in a park in the sunshine, and ate lunch at a local restaurant. Now dinner is waiting for later...it is a wonderful day! It helps that it is finally warm and I could take my coat off!
