Day 5: Starting to Feel Healthy

Well, my husband had a doctor’s appointment this morning. So, it gave me an excuse to take a few hours off work. πŸ™‚ And we spent a nice, quiet, comforting morning having breakfast together. We also discussed the Growth Engine Exercise I posted yesterday. And you know what? We both seem to be on the same page. Kudos!

I told him that the mission of opening a Farmer’s Market requires getting to know about all the operations with in it (baking, produce, food, beer/wine knowledge, cheese knowledge, crafting, retail…). And that the mission, right now, while paying down our debt is to take the time to learn about each one. Nike’s “just do it” comes to mind. Well, I will definitely post all more about it later: the plan, the mission, the steps, the journey…

Breakfast:
Oatmeal with brown sugar & milk, 1 slice whole wheat toast w/ strawberry jam, 2 slices of bacon, 1 scrambled egg, and coffee. MMmmmm…

Lunch:
Left over Mushroom & Pea Orzo/Risotto, couple slices of BBQ chicken, warm German apple slaw and Green Tea (I love the way the house smells when I cook apple slaw!)

Snack: Banana

Dinner:
Enchilada Casserole, Refried beans, and salad.

Dessert: snickerdoodles (my boss is making me stir a batch together for her. she made me bribe her for those few hours off this morning. lol!)

Exercise:
again, a 1.5 mile walk around campus. Actually, its not that I intended to do so because I got to work late. But, if you get to work late you have to park out in the boonies. And although we have trams to drive us around… I opted to walk! I made the conscious effort to partake in a physical activity.

And to top it off, I actually am feeling healthy, lean, and my attitude towards life has perked up. Not to mention that I am enjoying making conscious choices about the foods I am eating.

    Gosh, you’re doing well!! πŸ™‚ I’ve been walking to/from work every day, but I have to focus on eating better. My granola is my standby and I even had it for dinner last night. Ha! YUM!

    I’m behind in my postings, too, which I’ll have to do tonight or tomorrow at this point. Very intrigued by your Farmer’s Market idea and looking forward to hearing more about it!!

    @ NLA: least your walking. that’s a rather important point. I hope that I can make it back out to the trail this weekend. And I know that posting nightly can be difficult.

    Well thank you, I am rather excited about venturing on! πŸ˜‰

    @ Moving on up: thank you. yes, there are times I have to drag myself out. but it is worthwhile for body and mind. πŸ™‚ you can do it!

    Ms. MoneyChat: I’m a tryin’! Thanks for your encouraging words.

    Reading all your posts about your diet and exercise plan has inspired me to look at my diet – we seem to be ‘stuck in a rut’ foodwise at the moment though hoping to grow lots of our vegetables in the garden this year – must get a bit more exercise too:)
