The morning weight work out, as intended, was “Day 3” of the new program posted at the bottom of last nights blog HERE.  It took me 30 minutes and was preceeded by a 3 mile run on the treadmill. After the weight workout, Shane I jogged a little but walked most of the way 44 minutes.  Not bad – beautiful morning to be outside.  It was 59 degrees and clear.

Tomorrow is an aerobic day and I’m not sure what I’ll do yet.  We’ll see what the morning brings.  As for tomorrow night, it’s the first class of Digital Photography so make sure to tune in Friday or Saturday and I’ll let you know what we learned.  I’m SO EXCITED!!!!  😀   Don’t you just love to learn new stuff?!

Now for Good Eats…

A tortilla meaning “round cake” or an omelet?  This was easy to prepare.  I was able to get everything chopped and ready because Ted had gone to exchange some undies.  A woman cannot buy undies for her man …apparently.  The sporty, boxer type, brand name Nike or Reebok just don’t cut it (and NO SAM! He wasn’t exchanging silky thongs!).  Fruit of the Loom… are you still there?

  • 2 TBS EVOO
  • 1 Shallots, fine chop
  • 3 TBS chopped sun dried tomato (use oil packed or if you dehydrated some of your own from the summer’s bounty, crumble those up for 3 TBS.)  DSC_0939
  • 6 oz mushrooms, peeled, cleaned and sliced
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 Eggplant, peeled and chopped into about 1 ” cubes
  • 1 TBS toasted slivered almonds or toasted pine nuts
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 cup EggBeaters * or just use 6 whole eggs
  • 2 TBS chopped parsley
  • 2 TBS water
  • 4 oz Grated Cheese (I used Asiago – Oh WOW that was good!)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in skillet. Add the shallots and tomato over low heat and cook 5 minutes.  Add mushrooms  and eggplant, increase heat to medium and cook 5 minutes.  Add spinach and cook until it wilts, about 3- 4 minutes. 

Reduce the heat, add salt and pepper and nuts. Beat the eggs, beaters, water, parsley, salt and pepper.  Add to the skillet and let cook for about 6 – 8 minutes. You want the bottom to cook so lift the edges now and then to let all eggs cooks.  

Preheat the boiler to high.  Sprinkle the cheese on the omelet and place under the broiler for about 3 minutes until cheese melts.

Just lately I’ve found a new tasty snack:  FORZE

forze-gps-chocolate-peanut-It boasts a blend of natural fats, protein and calcium that activates the “body’s natural appetite control signal… so you can achieve your perfomance goals.”

 I have both the bars and the drink.  Both are pretty good and satisfying as a light snack.   Check it out.
