Walking

I didn't realize how much I missed my daily walks. From the 2nd day after my gastric bypass surgery and for 2 years I took a daily walk. After I hit my weight loss goal, it was easy to justify "taking today off" but you know it was more than just the exercise I was getting it was the me time alone with my thoughts, breathing fresh air and jamming to good tunes. Plus look at the beauty I was missing...





I took advantage of a break in the storm and I just made it before it started to rain again...


Highlights of the day:

* Hit the Farmer's Market this morning. It just began to spit with rain when we got there so we made about 2 turns around and hit our favorite stands. This week's haul: leeks (I've got plans for these), a cauliflower, red yellow & green onions, peppers, zucchini, a delicata squash (not sure what I'm doing with it roasting it probably. It was too cute not to buy), and some apples and pears (maybe an Apple & Pear Crumb.) After the FM, we went to Starbuck's I got my usual Sugar Free Cinnamon Dolce Soy Latte with no whipped cream and my Mum had a Pike's and proceeded to devour 2 cream-filled donuts from the donut shop next door. She's too funny. She thankfully has the metabolism of a 14 year old boy and those donuts are burned off already. I did not inherit this attribute. Pre-op if I ate things like that they just added another inch to my ass.

* If you have kids here's 2 super cute holiday websites to visit: Decorate a Gingerbread Person (gotta be PC) and Decorate a Ginger Bread House. These should take up a few minutes and give you momentary relief from "I'm Booooooored there's nothing to dooooooo."

* Experimental dinner tonight. I love the unknown. Will it be blogworthy? We shall see. If it is... look for the recipe and food porn manana. If it isn't... well... I will be posting more flippin' ducks.

WOW! What beauty along the way. I agree with you. The walk time is so sacred, it's your time to just collect the thoughts....or get rid of thinking all together. Love the take this week at the farmer's market. I sware I live to read what you get every Saturday! Looking forward to more food porn!!
