Three mile sprint run around the neighborhood with husband: 210 calories.
An hour of lawn mowing: 315 calories.
41 minutes of scrubbing the kitchen floor by hand: 124 calories.
A wonderful sunny Saturday spent with your husband: priceless!
Great morning! We got all of our chores done. The house is spotless. The lawn has diagonal stripes:
I am very pleased with the floors. I did it in three steps: 1) I hand-scrubbed them with a scouring pad dipped in soapy water and then 2) I wiped them clean with a wet cloth that I rinsed every few sections. Lastly 3) I mopped on some OrangeGlo polish.
Despite all the activity, I wasn’t even that hungry for lunch at 3:30 when we were finally showered! We did have a late breakfast (9:30/10 ish) though. I decided to have a GREEN lunch.
Leftover salad from last night (arugula with peppers, walnuts + feta) drizzled with honey + EVOO and some wasabi peas.
And leftover split pea soup (which was more like a thick dal than a soup)
Part of my “keep it simple” plan is to have less parts to my meals. I often get carried away with side dishes to achieve balance. I considered having a slice of bread and a pear with this lunch (to get all the food groups in!) but you do not need ALL of the food groups at every meal to get good nutrition Kath!
I also had a celery with Kelsey’s pimento cheese that Matt had out and a bite of his killer giant sandwich.
And to cleanse my palate after lunch – a Tales Of Expansion biscotti bite!

We are going to go read in the hammock now 🙂
I’m having so much fun just staying at home and NOT doing any school work today! And I can’t believe it’s only Saturday. Totally feels like a Sunday.
