Friday again so soon??

Yesterday I met with my personal trainer - today I can hardly sit down or stand up - my hamstrings hurt so much! I did my run, listening to Harry Potter. The time passed quickly. I made sure to include some inclines in my run - took the pathways that went up - and then really enjoyed the coming down part! I'm not really looking forward to my run today though. I'm thinking of asking the gal I run with if she wants to do the treadmill - it is so cold and icy outside.

So, I just bought myself the best cookbook EVER. It has 13 weeks of recipes (5 recipes to a week) and then has a grocery list for each week. You just photocopy the grocery list and off you go. I have lots of good recipes, but I hate making the grocery lists. So, today I go shopping for week one. I am going to do all 13 weeks. A former co-worker's wife uses the book and he said that he loves everything in it. And the meals are all either make in 30 minutes, or 60 minutes in the oven. I've gone through and figured out the points for each meal - they range from 7 to 11 - for the first week. I will just then plan the rest of my day accordingly.

Tomorrow is husband's birthday. He has requested roast beef with Yorkshire pudding. I will also do mashed potatoes and asparagus - his favourite veggie. Mmmm, should be yummy.

Well, I must away. The dog wants in, and I have to start getting myself psyched for my run. Wish me luck!

Have a healthy day bloggers!!


  1. I'm sure I speak for a lot of us when I say this....make sure you post some recipes if they are yummy!

  2. I have a cookbook like that.. I used it so many times that Hubby actually hid it from me. He said I needed to start thinking 'outside the book'. LOL.. I still go back to it every once in awhile!

    Share your favorites!!

    Good luck with your run.. which you have probably done by now.. so enjoy your next run!!

  3. Can't wait to hear more about the cookbook as you do a few weeks of it. That's really awesome, takes the hard part out of cooking!

  4. I LOVE trying new recipes! Let us know if you come across any real gems!!
