changing things up and spaghetti squash

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Ok, trying to change things up.. working toward my goals of losing weight for good and setting fitness goals.
1. Eating a later breakfast. Feeling rushed in the morning so just having coffee and then eating my eggs and toast at the office. I don't mind lukewarm.

2. Drinking more green tea and a green tea chia as my 'treat' after lunch. Also trying to bring seltzer to work as I think having something different to drink helps keeps my taste buds busy! ;)

3. New lunch ideas.. spaghetti squash with red sauce, chicken breast, and a little feta or spinach salad with feta, walnuts, chicken, strawberries and little dressing. Trying to go heavy on the veggies to be more filling.

4. New fitness goals.. aiming for a 12K in December and working on distance and speed. I've been off on my running since this summer I focused more on biking and swimming for the triathlon.. time to get back to running and weight lifting!!

Let's see where things are in a month!

    Good blog! I've got to make some spaghetti squash again. I swear the weight fell off in the past when I have subbed it for regular spaghetti!

    Loving the spaghetti squash! - We had it for dinner last night w/ marinara & Italian meatballs.
    Sounds like some worthy goals to work on for achieving health!

    Good goals!

    We grew spaghetti squash this year. Dismal failure. The last two years, we've had "volunteer" squash grow out of our compost bin and in the beds where we used the compost. They produced like crazy. I try to grow them and we get nothing. Next year, I'll just dump the starts in the compost bin and let them fend for themselves.

    When I eat breakfast at home, I end up eating around eleven. When I eat breakfast at work (after riding my bike here), I'm good to go until noon.

    Are you doing a 12K event in December? If so, which one? After last weekend's 5K, I'm ready to sign up for my next one. (But I am NOT ready for a 10K; I imagine I would complete it, but I wouldn't be able to walk the next day.)
