Still freezing cold here today, but no rain, so come along with me on the walk I took at lunch time.  I get distracted by photo ops, so not sure how many activity points I earned, but hey, some is better than none.  And fresh air, even when cold, is a good diversion in the workday.

Snow is almost gone, and liked the pattern that it was as it melted around plants

The birds were displaced into the ocean.  The water was very calm today, and I liked the ripples and circles they were producing as they moved around.IMG_7238

This looks like a waterfall in the middle of nature, but its actually some sort of water run off from the city.

This was about the extent of blue sky

I don't usually see the fire hose attached to the fire hydrant

Finally, an unused rail track and someone walking along it

I’m pretty sure you all earned an activity point by coming along on the walk with me!!  :)

And today’s weight watchers menu?  Breakfast was two pieces of Little Big Bread with 1 tbsp light cream cheese, a slice of ham and 1/4 avocado with balsamic reduction.

During the morning, I had a cup of blueberries with 1/2 cup greek yogurt.

My lunch after the walk was tuna salad (made with celery, 2 tsp light mayo and 2 tsp relish) on a bed of spinach, with cherry tomatoes, celery sticks, 10 (yup, I counted) crunchmaster crackers and an orange.

My afternoon snack was a pear.

When I got home from work, I had a serving of the “new to these parts” ranch pop chips.

And then….I had a second serving.  However, I tracked them, and had lots of weekly points left, so no big deal.

Dinner tonight was beef stew, made with a little beef and a boatload of vegetables (onions, garlic, carrots, celery, green beans, peppers, mushrooms, nugget potatoes, kale) all simmered in beef broth, then thickened.  I sprinkled some dried spinach on top for the photo.

Now, I have some prep to do for tomorrow, then the rest of the evening will be relaxing.  Neva already has a “leg up” on us on that!  :)

That doesn’t look comfortable, but it is to her.   I guess…  More tomorrow.
