Sunday's activities

Monday, December 04, 2017

Sunday was a beautiful weather day. My DH and I walked to Costco after having breakfast of homemade whole wheat bread, almond butter and honey and our last lovely fruit salad of the season from now on it will persimmons, grapes, apples and a bunch of tropical fruits from far away.

I have a great wheeled ice chest that I got from my company quite a while ago. The walk to Costco comprised about 9500 steps to go back and forth. We have to control ourselves from buying everything in the store since it has to fit in the ice chest. Later I walked to Safeway and bought some things for a meatless dinner of Black beans, caramelized onions, a can of tomatoes and cheddar cheese over brown rice. I ended up with 14, 616 steps for the day. And a pretty awesome calorie day that was right inside my new calorie threshold.

Today I walked around the industrial park my company borders. They are doing lots of construction and I found a fence across the usual path I take so I had to backtrack and look for a new path. I walked past an area I hadn't been in for a long time and found out that they had built another branch of our local community college right near where I work. I'll have to check and see if they offer any courses that I want to take.

    The rolling cooler/ice chest is brilliant! I used to keep a small cooler in my car with the grocery bags - made it so much easier to pack my groceries and know the cold items would at least be insulated.

    I love how you use every opportunity to walk. Don't you just love all the healthful and organic stuff Costco offers? I've fallen in love with the Crunchmaster Multi-grain Crackers (oven baked with sesame, flax seed, quinoa, etc., etc.) They are delicious! On sale last week -- $3 off. Try 'em!

    I have just yesterday tried black beans and liked them, so I have to ask. Do you just mix the beans, caramelized onions, tomatoes and cheese and heat in a sauce pan? Then serve over rice? Sounds like something I'd like to try but I am not very good at winging it!
