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!
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.
