Happy February - Already started gardening...

Saturday, February 04, 2012

Happy February!

Here in Florida, the weather has turned super nice. I've already started gardening and I'm loving it. Hubby and I raked tons of leaves today and took two trailer loads to the dump. My little courtyard garden is ready for some serious landscaping and new plants.

I was really surprised how much energy I had. A few years ago, there was no way I could have lasted doing busy yard work for 8 hours. And it's good to know my sporadic winter exercising hasn't made me too sluggish.

I've been tracking my food, mostly in a cool food log I keep with me. Definitely noticing a pattern. I tend to eat reasonably well during the work week and then go a bit nuts on the weekends. I'm still experimenting with new recipes so I have a good selection of meals I like to plan from.

I made Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken the other night and it lasted my husband and I about 4 meals throughout the week - awesome! I also tried those baked mozzarella sticks, which came out decent. And I made my first Fritata (breakfast meal) last Sunday and it was delicious and packed with lots of veggies. Also, I continuously bake a healthy version of Dark Chocolate Banana Muffins for snacks.

Hoping to finally put my new bicycle to use soon if the weather holds out.

    Outlawing all outside watering? Ouch! Hoping you get lots of rain soon. That's just no fun and kinda of scary that the water supply has gotten so low. We need more rain here too, but it should start raining pretty frequently in a month or so.

    I'm jealous on your gardening. It's neat to see your excitement.

    I'm going to plant a very few pots of herbs and maybe only a couple of tomatoes and squash in anticipation of our city outlawing all outside watering due to lack of water supply in this drought. I have a rain barrel and I'm planning to put in some more to water the plants and our outside pets from.
