Day 26 and 27 of the challenge

Thursday, July 25, 2013

Yesterday was busy, today even more so, doing family stuff!
Bike ride, watching a movie with the kids and DH came home early for the occassion. We used up the last of our cinema gift cards to go see Despicable Me 2 in 3D

Then DH surprised us by taking us out to dinner ( and we had a $5 off coupon! )

Relaxed afternoon and now I am getting to that cleaning out of the fridge I never got to last week! ( When it was soooo hot! )

I am starting to juice tomorrow morning and I want to be ready!

Got my Kale and lemon and mint and carrots ready!

I need to get my Vit B's and Iron INTO my body! The supplements were making me feel ill!
I'll try the food first!

I made "The Plan" carrot cake yesterday and it came out well, delicious! DS didn't like that I added raisins to it! LOL

It uses a TON of carrots which is a good thing!

No egg!

We have a whole string of social occassions this weekend, hence my status: It never rains it pours!

Tomorrow Family BBQ _ I am taking a nice big salad
Sunday - Ladies Brunch
Sunday lunch out with some special people


I will barely have to cook this weekend!

Hope you all have a great day and tomorrow is FRIDAY, please report day 26 and 17 here!

    You are such a busy bee Mel. Enjoy your
    weekend. I have to take a get out of jail card.
    Couldn't find my oat sourdough bread and
    I got some sourdough rye, but it does contain
    the 'sweet poison'. I walked for an hour and a half.
    Our city council launched its new fitness programs.
    Lots of classes to choose from -aqua aerobics, yoga
    Pilates, cooking for health and there was a lady who
    has beaten cancer. She gave a heart warming talk and
    told us she runs a Well BEing and Anti Ageing Clinic
    in conjunction with Diabetes guidelines. She also talked
    about Metabolic Syndrome and I think I might go to the
    free Seminar. A tiring but productive Day.

    Hi there - sorry I've not been around - a week in hospital, and a week up the West Coast, both without WiFi - a couple of short swims (nothing like your long-distance training) and an aqua class; some walking, three flights of stairs to get to the Kaliva (cabana) and shiver-me-timbers under many blankets to try to get warm

    Home again now - no yellow cheese - lots and lots of salad and fruit - DD2's basket is still going strong - the water was foul so that wasn't so good - but I discovered hot chocolate was gentler on the tummy with all the pills, than coffee. Back to the regular 2 - 3 litres of water now.

    Hmm I wonder if that's why I feel so much better this afternoon??

    Juicing sounds like a great way to get your vitamins in - get much better absorbed than supplements.
    Have fun this busy weekend!!
    Thursday - eating on track, walked tot he post office and office twice
    This morning - started the day with a 25 min yoga session which included planks.I'll feel my tummy muscles tomorrow :)
    Weight is still above goal but it's going in the right direction again (PMS bloat s#cks!)
    No grocery shop today, I still have enough to last the weekend and on Monday we need to take the truck in for service in Durango - we'll combine the trip with a grocery run.

    My body also doesn't like vitamins very much. (and make me feel ill, too) Definitely getting your vitamins from food is ideal, anyways... I hope it works!

    Have a FUN weekend of not cooking emoticon
