Iceberg Lettuce!

Saturday, September 14, 2013

I actually asked my Mom to buy some Romaine lettuce while she was out at the convenience store but she bought Iceberg lettuce instead! I prefer the taste and nutrition of Romaine lettuce but I must say, I love the texture and crunch of Iceberg lettuce.

But it's so difficult to get the leaves off in one piece, especially the inner leaves. Not an issue with Romaine! I ended up with roughly torn pieces of Iceberg lettuce leaves! I decided to squirt some Ceaser Salad dressing on them, walla! A simple Ceaser salad, but I didn't have any croutons but was too lazy too make some myself. So, I just ate the lettuce with the dressing as it is.

I really don't know what's wrong with me these days, I am just soooo lazy to exercise. I made myself do some Pilates today for like 30 minutes, then I went for a short walk that ended up being 40 minutes. But I wasn't walking briskly at all, I was just strolling along, enjoying the fresh air. I can't jog, I'm having aching bones and joints, ah, the 'joys' of osteoporosis. I'm a little young to get this problem but I'm having this problem as a side-effect of being a dialysis patient, along with a constant itch all over........long story!

Anyways, I really need to make myself work out a sweat with a workout DVD! That's the only way I can make myself sweat! Other than jog, which is a bit hard for me these days....sigh! Hopefully, I can get moving next Tuesday and Thursday!

    I have bone pain issues also, so I know how hard exercise can be.
    I think a 40 minute walk is great! Even if you didn't walk fast, that is definitely not being lazy! I know a lot of healthy people that complain if they have to walk a little ways because they can't get the closest parking space at the store.

    Hi Elaine, emoticon

    I prefer Romaine to Iceberg! The way to get the leaves off the Iceberg Lettuce is to slam the head of the lettuce down hard. This loosen the leaves and it is easy to peel it off one by one. Hope this helps.

    I thought you are doing pretty good with your exercises.

    Take care & have a great day! emoticon

    iceberg is good sometimes, I especially like it on sandwiches. As for exercise, sweating doesn't always mean good exercise. You need to get your heart rate up not sweat. Try some of Coach Nicole's chair exercises.

    I enjoy the Iceburg as well and just mixed then together for a nice colorful salad. If I am struggling, it means I am not giving up. If I'm struggling, then I'm still trying. And if I keep trying, then I will succeed. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
