Christine- when the kids were home we would have pizza once a week. I made the dough with only 1 tsp. of yeast and little salt and about 1/2 T of oli- and it would rise overnight. Sometimes - most times get sprouted spelt wheat too! Having it rise overnight was great- while we sleep and it brought out flavors and did not have to use much yeast.

- I think that can be ok depending on toppings BUT since it is just me around her..well! I hav to say no to delivery and not get wine.. as it would most like be 2-3 glasses with that one left for DH

- I just had to find stuff to do.. I'm glad could be your hero! I will stick to it- the day is not over yet...

Pizza is so hard to say no to. I did make a pizza the other day... used my bread machine for the dough... I don't think I will ever completely get away from it. Good for you for NOT giving in, you are my hero!!! :-)

My hip is a bit better... but not 100% yet. I won my Fitbit workweek hustle with 70,000 steps so I may have overdone it, ha ha!

I bombed out on the strength training program & I really hope to get back to it, maybe today!

How is everyone here doing this weekend?

Took today off from walking... my right hip is bothering me, oh well. Yesterday was a long walk though! :-)

I also got to the library and I checked out a book called the get healthy go vegan cookbook. Hopefully I’ll find some good stuff in there!

Anyway what is everyone up to this weekend?

Today was lots of yard work. Then I made it up "Heart Break Hill". Bought two trays, one was veggies and one was fruit. Yum!

Everytime I run when I am soaked I keep things about how heavy I am, hahaha!

Using a new free app "Fitness Point" and so far I think it is awesome. I went to the gym yesterday with my sister and we had so much fun calling each other "maggot" from a Tom Cruize movie... hahaha Edge of tomorrow... so good on a good big TV.

Already went for a short walk with sister, next the gym and will use Fitness Point. Strength training is something that I have been needing for quite a while now.

Food choices are good too, except breakfast, I am still eating raisin bran in the morning.

Weight is good at 144, according to my doctor, but I sure would like to get more muscles... Time will tell.

I cleaned my guinea pig's cage which is exercise PLUS it makes me feel happy to see that the animals are happy!
Took a walk of half an hour in the evening and enjoyed the cool breeze.
Ate a healthy breakfast, evening meal and lunch.
