The long and winding road to fitness, day 43

I felt much more rested today and was able to get a lot more done over the course of the day.  I went out a little after 6 am for a walk…it was still terribly hot and humid, came home just a bit sweaty.  But it was much nicer at 6 am than it was this afternoon.  Whew…I hate to say this, but I’m ready for fall.  Fall has always been my favorite time of the year in Indiana and I’m sure this year will be no different.  I like those crisp mornings and the vivid blue skies, the humidity drops to a much more humane level, and you can sleep with the windows open.  It’ll be here before we know it.

I walked for 30 minutes today and worked in the garden for another 30 minutes.  That was the total of my exercise for the day.  I’ve skipped strength training for a few days, time to get back with it.  My eating was really good.  I’ve had a little less than 1500 calories for the day.  I got a lot of cooking in for food to take to work (tomorrow’s lunch is grilled veggies on whole wheat focaccia…which I made myself).  I also canned some pickles and peppers…the kind of canning where you store the jars in the fridge rather than in the pantry.  I put both of those on my veggie sandwiches…yum…better than Subway.

My next day off I’m going to have to do something with zucchini.  I think I’ll make some zucchini bread (a healthier recipe) and then just shred the rest and put it in the freezer for later.  I’ve only got one zucchini plant, but one is more than enough this year.  Maybe I’ll whip up that zucchini crust pizza I mentioned the other day.   We’ll see…

So, did you do any cooking this weekend?  What are your plans for the week?

  1. My first plan for the week is to show up and help you eat your lunch! That sounds so good. The only thing I cooked this weekend was a pizza. I bought the thin whole wheat crusts to try. I didn’t have as much leftover Ragu pizza sauce as I thought, so it was light on that, but it still tasted fine. I added some mozzarella, turkey pepperoni and sweet pepper rings. We had a thunderstorm today! Got an inch and a half of rain, which we badly needed.

    • Come on over…I’ve got more in the freezer…and the sandwich with the focaccia and grilled veggies was delish!! Having the same thing tomorrow. How did you like the thin whole wheat pizza crusts? What brand were they? The pizza sounds good…we could sure use some more rain…

  2. The brand was Mama Mary’s. I baked it on the pizza stone, and I liked it. Hubby was out of town, so I don’t have a second opinion. 🙂
