Hey guys! Happy Tasty Tuesday to you 🙂
With another big holiday upon us, it’s time to start thinking about the holiday menu already!
I finally got to my blog – second time in this busy week, which sucked for the most part 🙂
Let’s see….It’s Friday (YAY!), I am back to PT for an uncertain period of time (boooo), and heading to NYC this weekend to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary!!!
The past week healthy eating was challenged by:

Junk/Processed/Not-so-good-for-you food – 2, Lena – 1.
There were some good/not-so-bad food choices and decisions this week, as well.
All in all, it wasn’t the best week food-wise.
On top of that, I pulled my left calf on Wednesday night, went to my scheduled physical therapy session on Thursday and was immediately treated for the new disaster. And that’s right when I was going to start making my way out of PT some time after next week. No such luck. The pulled calf hurt like hell last night, but seems to be a little better today.
What I am most upset about is the rest days I have to take that I was not planning on. This injury once again messes up my entire exercise routine and I can’t ignore it because it hurts to move.
Erm…remind me – isn’t exercise supposed to make you fell better? 🙂
Anywho, before my fitness life was interrupted by the pulled muscle, I managed to fit some fine exercise in last week:
Did you guys noticed the new banner? What do you think?
Also, the former “Healthy Recipe” page of the blog is now called “Recipes” (the sole reason for the name change is that what’s healthy for me can be unhealthy for somebody else, so let’s go with the neutral name) and is powered by ReciPage!
I am still in the process of transferring the recipes from one to the other, but very happy with the way the new page looks! I think it is a lot easier to brows recipes now. You can also search by key ingredients, cooking methods and alphabetically.
I hope you like it and I would appreciate any feedback!
I will see you guys next week with the NYC trip recap!
Have a great weekend and stay fit!
Happy hump day, my friends!
To me, it’s pretty much Friday, close enough anyway 🙂
It’s been a very hectic week so far (just like the one before) – lots of running around, exercising, PT sessions, etc. etc..
With all this I am honestly struggling with fitting simple things like getting gas and grocery shopping into my schedule….and fail a lot of times 🙂
You will see the signs of my busy schedule in today’s post – “What’s on My Plate Wednesday” is featuring not as many eats as usual – not because I am a lazy photographer, but because a lot of times I am eating “on the go” – still eating good stuff, though. No fast food for this body 🙂
Ok, here we go – eating highlights from the past week.Continue Reading
