And The Heat Goes On

I finished up a week of exercise class Friday. So happy that I have not had back pain or problems at all. It feels good to get back to the class I really missed it. And it is good to get me out of the house 3 times a week for 2 hrs. The class runs about 75 mins and the rest in travel time. I will need to find something else to do a few more times a week in the early mornings.

Went to breakfast with my daughter as usual and then we went to the .99 store. Boy did  I get some great veggies and fruits. The stuff looks better that  Walmart and lasts longer. But I will cook up most of the veggies and freeze them. I have a couple new recipes I want to try. One is with chicken which I haven't eaten in a long time. Made a large pot of mixed beans, and another of brown rice. I have put them in 1/2 cp containers and froze most of them. I like cooking lots of stuff in the summer so I don't have to cook all the time. We are back into the 105-107 range again and I really have no desire to cook and sometimes not in much of a mood to eat period. I make salads lots of times if there isn't anything to throw into the micro. Salads are fine but not much protein. So that's where the beans come in. 

Also bought some 1# hand held weights for class. Don't want to rush into the heavier ones for a while yet.

Hope every one is having a great weekend.


  1. I use the 2# weights at home - 3# & 5# at the gym. I used to be able to lift a bar that was 32# over my head while lying on the bench, but I don't even try that now.

    You are wise to cook ahead. There are times I just don't feel like cooking, and I don't eat! That's not good.

  2. Hi Gypsy,

    I have heavier weights but want to start out light this time around don't want to mess up the back it is doing quite well so I am willing to take it slow.

    Cook up a great recipe tonight and had left over so in the freezer it went. Not eating is not good

  3. The weights area great idea! I'm a big fan of cooking a "pot full" so there is some left overs for later! Less work.

  4. Hi Sondra,

    I like these weights,I have seen them in Walmart but they weren't .99 haha. When I worked I alwasy did lots of cooking on the weekends so I had portions in the freezer to just through into the micro. I think I may have learned that at Weight Watchers many years ago

  5. Great to hear your back is doing better. Now if you can keep it up the muscles may do a good job of supporting your spine!!! Fingers crossed!!
