Oh, Darn, the Challenge is 5 Veggies a Day!

Thursday, July 11, 2013

Wow! Actually, I think if half a cup of salad is a serving, I made it yesterday. I find that this challenge is similar to the whole foods thing I was doing. My calories are still under, but I'm not tired, and my appetite is still out of whack because I'm not feeling 100% and have been busy cleaning the house, which is an awesome work out when it's intense.

Anyway, this weekend, I plan on grilling all kinds of vegetables and some seafood. Probably shrimps, so my son can have some. I got some great Quiona burgers to grill too. I hope to do a lot of walking and hiking because I won't be going back to the gym until after Tuesday, but I don't feel like I've neglected my fitness minutes with all the housework. I hope the camp site has a gym; sometimes they do, which seems off, but what the heck.

I weighed myself when I went to the doctor on Tuesday, and I am about the same. It's funny how since I've been focusing on fitness minutes, I don't remember exactly how long I have weighed this much. I used to angst about plateaus; now, this whole process is far less pressured and way more enjoyable.

Well, the little master summons me for milk and cookies.

    Hiking and grilling over the campfire! Awesome, even if they don't have a gym. My teens are pretty outdoorsy and always up for an adventure. Its just clearing everybody's schedule at the same time that is tricky these days. It's busier but sometimes easier when they are little and you are the schedule keeper for everyone.

Enjoy your trip and rack up lots of steps. A yummy trail mix was always the thing to keep my boys moving when they were little hikers.

    I couldn't agree more.. We are more than a number on a scale.. and being healthy and fit at any size is way better than being sedentary..

Glad you are enjoying the ride..
