Well, I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only person who used to plan a free weekend around food! Thanks for all the comments - you guys get me, and I love that!
So, I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend. I read, watched TV, ran around in the front yard with Paco the wonder dog and I even made a trip out to the new "health food" store. Which is really an old crappy grocery store that was bought out and the new owners are touting it as a health food place, which in actuality is still the same old crappy store but with a slightly bigger selection of, say, peanut butters. Oh and they have a ton of gluten-free stuff, which would be awesome were I in need of those types of products. But I am not.
I ended up buying 2 avocados (at the low, low price of .44/ea), a huge head of romaine lettuce (.99!), some craisins, gorgonzola and a packet of Simply Organic Pineapple and Cilantro salad dressing mix. You just mix it with water and some white vinegar (package says white wine, but I'll be using rice vinegar because that's what is in my pantry) - no oil, so it's low low in calories. Hopefully it's high high in taste! I have some marinated asparagus, garbanzo beans and toasted pecans to add to - you guessed it - a huge salad that I'll have for dinner tonight. Yum! Usually, I'm not thrilled with how my salads come out - my mom makes the best salads, hands down, and most of the time mine are missing something. Or have too much of something. So I'm hoping for a winner, or at least a first runner-up with this salad. I'll let you know.
This post has gotten away from me! I meant to write about what I've learned from Dr. Oz but will save that for another day.
Let me leave you with one very public commitment: After feeling like a slug during my workout this morning, I talked with Linda about doing something at home, and for the next week, I'm going to do a one-minute plank hold, working on getting my form correct, twice an evening. It may not sound like much, but it is for me, and I am all about the baby steps!
Edited to add: Go here for a Fage yogurt giveaway! Just looking at all the Fage on The Hungry Yogini's page is making my mouth water!
