    Checking in with 8,400 steps done just spraying weeds, laundry, etc. Still have my 4 mile walk this evening. It is really warm here with a nice 81 and sunshine today. Even the cat is feeling peppy today. Have a good night! Dinner is grilled chicken with a yogurt sauce and grilled veggie kebabs plus quinoa.

    So we got back home Saturday from a week at Saratoga Springs. Did the no park thing again, just enjoying the resort, pools and bicycle riding and going over to SeaWorld a couple of times as we still have active annual passes.
    The thing that was abundantly clear this trip is I was in no way prepared physically, as walking and biking took a toll on this aging body. I was sore a lot and it is only my own fault for not being more dedicated to walking and exercise.
    Lesson learned and I will up my walking game in an attempt to build up stamina for future trips.
    Here are a few cycling photos. One at SSR, one near Disney Springs and one at Fort Wilderness.

    Last night we had some very loud storms but thankfully no flooding or power outages:) Seeing I was up with no plans to go out and walk today I did 10 inside miles(5 before the boys left and 5 right after) and day 2 of the 30 day yoga challenge. Why not I was up early so why not make the most of it and it was too loud to go back to bed:joyfull: BUT guess who got a phone call saying the skies had cleared by somebody didn't want to walk alone. It was a nice but windy 2 miles. Tonight's dinner leftovers and guess who's going to bed a bit early:D

    I'm changing up my workout routine. My lower body seems to have plateaued and my arms are starting to bulk:eek::mad::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead: I like starting my day with yoga but with my dh's schedule that doesn't work:mad::mad::mad::mad: If I do anything where I make a lot of noise when he's home he'll get up so I picked up JM's kickbox fast fix(on sale:joyfull:) and will do that in the am for a while and see how it goes. I love that her dvds have a couple of different workouts. Today was the lower body one and was a bit challenging just learning the combos. I'm sure I've mentioned having 6 left feet:hilarious: This week's great veggie buy spinach with the root end attached(the type you find in oriental markets):hungry::hungry::hungry::hungry::hungry::hungry:

    Never saw a root on spinach. How do you use the root in your cooking (or do you just discard it)?

    Good I think it's morning:hilarious: serious lack of sleep:mad:. Any hoo did manage to do JM's workout 3 abs so I'm switching up days 5 & 6 of YWA because day 6 is abs might as well hit them hard today because that's all I may do except go back to sleep and cook dinner which will be veggie curry. @MySmallWorldof4 you may like this sauce Tiffins/Nomad's "butter" sauce it makes 8quarts:joyfull::joyfull::joyfull:.
    Toast spices in dry pan
    1.25 oz cardamon
    2 oz cinnamon
    1oz cloves
    1.5 oz fenugreek
    1oz chili flakes
    then grind the spices
    Heat 3 ounces oil and sweat
    4 oz garlic and
    4 oz grated ginger together
    add
    6 oz tomato paste and lightly brown
    add
    3 #10 cans tomato puree
    reduce heat
    add
    50 ounces coconut milk
    salt & pepper to taste
    now the official recipe says to puree at that point I haven't found to have needed it

    Thanks. I would have to buy some new ingredients cause some I don't have. Never heard of fenugreek. Had to look that one up. To be honest the first thing I read from this post, what popped up at me was "oil and sweat", and I was like "What?":confused::D

    Oh and did not know this thread existed so thanks and Greeaaat, you have just added more reading to my day.:p

    Good morning, so far I'm loving waking up and doing kickboxing:inlove: and moving yoga to later in the day. The only problem I have is how to squeeze in my steps for the next few days due to all the rain. I wanted to not have to do any Leslie Sansone but a few 12 minute miles will get them done:hilarious: It's chili night and seeing James asked why he couldn't hang with his buddies next Sunday he gets to chop all the veggies:D Have a wonderful and healthy weekend:joyfull::joyfull::joyfull::joyfull:

    Hello-

    I've been busy. I didn't stop working out, though. I did take a break last week, I took a quick 5 day trip to WDW. My husband's been traveling weekly, so I just felt like I needed to get out. I have an annual pass, I found cheap flights and a cheap room.

    I am doing a Fitness Blender 2 month program. It's OK so far. I do like that I don't have to sit and agonize which workout I should do. Now, I have a calendar, I click on the date and the work out starts.

    I am less than 2 lbs away from my goal. But I have a feeling I won't make goal this week, either. (Thank you, hormonal water retention.) I will focus on the 33 lbs I have lost since November. :)

    I am making tofu-avocado rice bowls for dinner tonight.

    I hope everyone is doing well. :)
