|Yes, I know those are kayaks but our canoes were soon to follow!|
"Elina, have you ever heard of something called rest?"
"I've heard of it.."
Whatever you say boss. :)
I watched a movie, took a nap, stretched and then decided that although I was sore and bruised from canoeing and strength training from the day before I needed to do some sort of exercise. I opted to drive down six miles and go to the trail head for one of the volcanoes just south of the lake. I walked up a hill to the trail head junction and decided to take the rim trail rather than the plug trail. The rim takes you around the rim of the crater that frames the volcano. The plug takes you in to the volcano itself. I'd done the plug before so I opted for the rim. What a gorgeous view, and a nice work out since the pumice sand and up and down in elevation got my body moving.
|What goes up must come down. You can see my trail descending.|
I didn't have all the ingredients but that has never stopped me. I used the recipe as a guideline and made my own stuffing using an old handmade turkey patty as my ground meat, some tomatoes, onions, salsa, rosemary, cayenne pepper, garlic salt and sprinkled in some feta cheese on top. I made two bell pepper halves and stuck them in the oven. They turned out amazing. I ate 1 serving and half of another. The book explains that a serving is around 232 calories. I used slightly different ingredients but nothing too out of the ordinary. I would think I consumed somewhere in the 350-400 calorie range.
|I ate this and half of another. Delicious!|
I don't expect any weight loss after my hectic week. I'm hoping I maintained however. Monday will be my weigh in.
