WIAW~I’ve Got The Fitness Thing Working!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!  Here at BCDC, we just love WIAW! It’s that great, fun, food and fitness party presented every week to you our loyal readers by Jenn at Peas & Crayons!  It couldn’t be more fun if we tried, so be sure to run over to P & C when you’re finished here to check out the fabulous food and fitness fun happening over there each week.  Leave some comments, too…We Bloggers LIVE for comments! 😉

Peas and Crayons

So first off…What’s my fitness week been like?  Very fit, thank you!  July 1, I started walking and I’ve kept up with it very well.  Doing my daily 2 miles has been a big step in the right direction for me, and relatively easy!  I wasn’t getting enough exercise and as I get older, according to my doctor, I need to do more “weight-bearing exercise.”  Walking is considered a weight-bearing exercise.  It’s easy, it doesn’t cost anything, and I Like It!  I missed 2 days since I started, one because it was too darned hot out!  But that day I walked at the mall…maybe not 2 miles, but I walked.  I hope to keep this up throughout the summer and into the Fall.

I’ll have to adjust a bit when we go on vacation because as I’ve mentioned before, the area where our house is in New Mexico does not have sidewalks and I don’t feel comfortable walking on the streets…too hilly with bad sight lines for oncoming cars.  I’ll figure out something to do.  We’ll have to see what! 😉

So food photography has been lacking this week.  I’ll show a few things I’ve enjoyed this week!

Dunkin’ Donuts breakfast…always one of my favorites!

Yummy vegetarian hot and sour soup!

Eggplant with garlic sauce…Tofu added!

Leftovers made into a quick, easy and delicious lunch salad!

After a trip to Aldi and the produce market…a breakfast/lunch of a banana, a fig (oh joy, oh rapture!) and Greek black cherry yogurt.  This is a new flavor from Aldi and it was so delicious.  Even though I’m trying to clear out the fridge prior to our trip…I stocked up a bit.  Glad I did! 

So that’s about it for me for What I Ate Wednesday…Hope you’ve all enjoyed it.  Please be sure to visit Peas & Crayons…look around and get some wonderful ideas…oh yes…and leave some Comments!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!  Get out there and get FIT!!

  1. fran, i think it is so fantastic that you’re doing your walks AND that you are enjoying it! walking IS such a great activity, like you say: free, you can go anywhere, and all you need, really, is a good pair of shoes (had to throw that in there, given my profession!).
    i had to laugh when you say, “bloggers live for comments” because it’s so true! i love getting comments AND leaving comments – feels like chatting, continuing a conversation. and i don’t know how to leave a short comment!
    have a great day – i am off to toronto for aunti wednesday!

    • I LOVE Aunti Wednesday!! I like to point out to any of my readers who might go to WIAW that they should leave comments. We, the bloggers as you know don’t have a clue what’s going on or who’s reading if people don’t leave comments! That’s why I always try to mention it. I’ve gotten some wonderful readers from WIAW so I like to make it a point of saying it. I understand the “shoe” comment… 😉 I tend to leave long comments as well. I love our “chats!” Enjoy your day with the little ones!!

  2. Yumm banana, figs and yoghurt… perfect combo!

  3. You are teasing me with that delicious looking Chinese food again Fran! And, just think of all of the awesome Tex Mex you can put up on WIAW once you are in NM! Walking is what I’m into these days too. I miss the weight lifting and plan to start that again next week (I hope!). I can’t skip the walks or the dog will tear my house apart ;). Have a great day and keep up the good walks!

  4. Hi Fran, Happy WIAW! We are feeling the heat too. If I don’t exercise in the morning, then it is not going to happen. That hot and sour soup looks great! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  5. Still,I am so proud of you for being consequent regarding your walks,and of course,it’s even better if you’re enjoyeing them,too! 🙂
    I love how you always buy your food from Aldi,it makes me feel less like a “stranger” in the blogging world since we have an Aldi in Germany,too… Hehe 😉

  6. Good for you! Keep up the walks 🙂

    And too funny – I have a photo of hot & sour soup on my WIAW this week to! So delish 🙂

  7. Your meals look so gourmet! I will have to try out that yogurt:) Greek yogurt+black cherry= heaven!

  8. Yeah, I still REALLY want that Chinese food! And way to go with walking, I definitely agree on the “doesn’t cost anything” part as being a huge bonus.

  9. Good for you with the exercise! It is so important to move every day!

  10. Eggplant in garlic sauce is one of my FAVORITE things to order and asian restaurants 🙂 So good
