Workout High.....who needs X????

Yesterday's workout put me in a great mood, I was still flying high when husband & daughter got home!

I did my 10.5 minute warm up/cool down on the elliptical (total 21 minutes), and it made my 45 minutes on the treadmill a bit easier - my thighs didn't get as tight as they did last time. I chose the elliptical with the moving arms and what a difference it made! So much easier on my knees. I don't really understand why it was different, but it was. Husband & daughter gave me good advice on that one! I'm excited also because I think that I can increase my speed on Friday a bit - I felt like I could walk faster yesterday. I think doing some of my walks outside and some on the treadmill will be good - since when I'm on the treadmill I know how fast I'm going.....

Today is the 1 hour walk with hills. Since we are expecting a high of 13 today, Synchro mom & I will be going outside and ending our walk at Starbucks. Not my favourite coffee place, but my walking partner loves it. I'm a Tim's person through and through. We are doing our walk early today, which is nice because then I have the rest of the day to do my running around.

I tried a new crockpot recipe last night. The book does not give nutritional information, but the recipe was so good. It was Easy Cabbage Roll Casserole. The only thing I changed from the recipe was I did 1/2 ground beef & 1/2 ground pork. It was so lovely. Husband & daughter both loved it, and I had enough to freeze for an easy lunch on the weekend.

Tonight I will be running to the store to get the ingredients to try Winter Root & Sausage Casserole. MMMMMMM....I hope!! Even though I don't have the nutritional information, I figure as long as I use my weight watcher serving spoons, which measure out a cup and only have one serving....

Have a healthy day bloggers!


  1. I think you are doing a great job with the exercise you such a saint to put up with 13 degree weather I dont see how you do it but bravo to you. Im a big fan of the elliptical/walk-run outside combo those are my two favorite exercises.

    You will have to post that recipe, sounds delicious!

    Keep up the great work!

  2. You're so brave for walking outside!! I call it at anything below 25, then I walk inside instead. The cabbage roll recipe sounds yummy - could you share it with us?
