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.
