Hey there all my fellow culinary officianado's. The weather here in Minnesota has been unbelieveable the last three weeks. Although colder this week, in the 50's it is still higher than the normal of about 46 during the daytime. Sadly, as I was attempting
to clean up the yard a tad, I discovered there seemed to be much difficulty with my abilities at physical exertion??? Can't be that another year has been notched on that belt that is a little bigger and a little tighter could it? Oh I hate aging! Why does
this have to happen to me in the midst of my prime? I have decided that it is definately time to get on the bus and increase my exercise, watch my diet and hopefully shed a few of these winter pounds. Seems that along with age, a tad bit of apathy toward
the way we look can occur also. OK, what am I going to do about it? First, when I first get up I have to start eating my "healthy" breakfast, never skipping that most important meal of the day. Get that metabolic engine started and keep it purring all day
long. I need to start with some whold grain cerial of ONLY ONE SERVING so that means I will need to measure out the portion. Then, coffee or tea is OK, but forget all the French Vanilla creamer! Ok, I bought some Stevia and I can use some low cal flavoring.
Now, one piece of lightly Margarinated toast, preferabley whole grain and 1/2 cup of OJ. This should keep me going til lunch. Between breakfast and lunce a little excercise would not be out of line. How about an "around the block a few times" with little
Pickles? That should do it, if I can only be consistant? Also, could ride the bike a tad. Get that heart beat up for about 10 minutes to start and that would be good. This is the initial plan. Let me try to be consistant with this part for a week and
then try to further plan this quest!
