Fitness Friday

Heel Spurs.  Yes, heel spurs kept me from walking for exercise for a few weeks.  Doc said to give it a rest, stretch and ice.  I did that for a few weeks and then began back at walking.  No difference if I walk or don't walk...so I say WALK!  I cut my walks a bit and/or divide them into two times a day instead of one long one.  But I am back at it and ready to report.

These are from the past few weeks.  Seems like summer is a hard time to remember to take a photo.  Also I sort of have a uniform in the summer...shorts, tee, sandals.  There isn't much variety here.  But check out Pleated Poppy for some other inspiration.


Meal Plan Monday

Our lives have been uber hectic between work and trips...meal planning was usually done that day.  This week have a bit of a breather (sort of) so I've made up some plans.

Monday:: Homemade pizza dough for flat breads.  The kids usually pick just to put tomato sauce on theirs, but I'm putting veggies too.  We'll grill these to save from heating up the kitchen.

Tuesday:: Quesadillas  Going to try this for the first time, going to use homemade refried beans to stick the tortillas together instead of cheese.  We'll put in some some taco meat and veggies.

Wednesday::Sandwich and salad night.  Nice and cool, plus super easy.

Thursday:: Something from the freezer.  Again easy!!!!

Friday:: Grill out fun...TBD from one of my cookbooks and what is on sale when we hit the grocery store.

Saturday:: Going to a friends for an outdoor dinner.  Will bring bentos for the kids and I haven't decided what I'll bring to the party...again cookbooks and sale items!


What's for lunch

My Leftover Bentos::  Bentos are so perfect for carting a whole leftover meal with you.  This was from soft taco night.  There is brown rice, homemade refried beans, taco seasoned grilled chicken with corn on top and a few tortillas.  YUM!
