And….Feeling Good!

October 18, 2016

Yesterday started off with a hilly (and hot!) walk that was just over 6 miles. It was a great way to start the day! 


I had the day off yesterday, and I had no desire to get anything checked off of my to do list.

I drank lots of water, ate good food and kept within my points for the day. For some reason, I feel kinda pooped lately,  Around 3:00 in the afternoon, I decided to put my feet up for just a few minutes…in my bed. I woke up after 5:00!! I am not a napper. I wake up cranky thinking about all of the things that I could have/or should have been doing. I even woke up cranky from naps as a kid. Not yesterday. I woke up feeling rested. Guess I was needing it.

After my nap, I cooked up some yummy grub.

I grilled up a Flank Steak that would feed an army. Okay, it will feed the two of us for several meals.



Six minutes each side. Perfect every time. The pups even get a little juice on their food and they love it!






I roasted up some White Sweet Potato Fries



I cut up one piece of bacon and cooked it in the skillet with a little red onion. I then added my beans and about 1/4 cup of Trader Joe’s Organic Vegetable Broth and let it simmer with the lid on it, giving it a good stir every few minutes. These were delicious.


On today’s agenda, a Yoga class, working an At Work Weight Watcher meeting this afternoon and a few online training classes.

Make it a great day!

    It is on my list, which happens to be growing thanks to you!!


  2. Sorry I never tried it.
    I googled it after reading what you said and I watched a video by Clean and Delicious–How to roast a delicata squash. Looks good!
    There are so many recipes that I might like to try but first I’ll see if Krogers has any.

    No I have not! i will Google it so I know what it looks like, then add it to my grocery list!

    Thank you Nancy!

    Have you tried it?

  4. Have you ever tried Delecata squash fries??
    The helper at our weight watcher meeting said someone brought them to the gathering she attended and no one at first would try them but once they did they ate it all up.
    I thought she said it tasted like sweet potatoes.
    It’s one of those squashes that’s only out for a short time.

    I decided several months ago to buy every variety of sweet potato that I could find. I usually find the largest variety at Whole Foods. I actually found these at my neighborhood store with the organic produce. They are a tad pricey ($3.49/lb?), but i was curious. They have a reddish purplish skin, and they are white on the inside. They are so creamy and have a completely different taste, but they are sweet! I don’t buy them very often, but when I do, we both go crazy over them!

  6. WOW dinner looked delicious. I have never heard of white sweet potato fries. Where do you get them?
