Sorry I’ve been MIA – I just haven’t felt like being on the computer!
Husband and I went hiking on Saturday and man am I sore! We hiked up Crowder’s Mountain, just south of Charlotte. It was nice to get some fun exercise for a change. Just good old “movement.” We did about 5 miles, which included some VERY sleep climbs. I guessed about 500 calories burned. My HRM said 400, but it was kind of slow on some of the parts when my legs were burning, so I added 100. My hips/butt are SO sore that I couldn’t run today! We had a picnic at the top of the mountain of homemade bread, cheese (Stilchester and Brie), grapes, and slaw. Yum!! I was by myself for the afternoon/evening and decided to attempt a lentil “meatloaf.” It turned out just OK. I also did some compulsive snacking – booooo!
Here’s a photo recap:
Oatmeal with dates, pear and almonds. And coffee.
Who curls their hair to go hiking? ME!!!!!!!!
Picnic. The cheese on the right is the husband’s, who borrowed my plate:
Kashi crackers and pear before I went shopping. Also had peanut butter that I didn’t photograph.
I was starving before dinner, so I had some crackers:
And some wine!!
Leftover roasted veggies cooking with tomato sauce. This got pureed in the food processor:
Lentils with pureed veggies:
First loaf in pan:
First loaf after it got smushed. It wasn’t firm enough to handle the transfer:
Loaf after I put it back in the pan and re-baked it 20 minutes more. Much better!
My portion with yogurt. It was too mushy. I wish I could have CHEWED everything! Needs more veggies underneath to add bulk:
Dessert: Kashi cookie –
And some pita chips, and some kashi crackers. BOOOO for mindless boredom snacking!!!
Total Saturday calories: 2060
-700ish thru exercise (500 hike plus shopping)
= net of 1308. I can’t remember if I ate anything else to push me over more – this doesn’t sound right. Guess it doesn’t matter!
Kath, what is the recipe for those loafs? Thanks!
I have no idea – it was so long ago 🙁
Love seeing these old posts, Kath!! So cool- looks like the perfect hiking spot!
