Mid-week

Our weather has been wonderful lately. This makes my walking so much nicer. I am a little sore from walking. So I started to think....(scary) but last week I was sick and only walked on Friday (3 miles) then on Sunday I did a 4 miles walk and then, Monday, Tuesday I walked another 3 miles each. So, I am thinking that it was from the lack of walking  last week. I really think I need to stretch better before and after my walk.

I think what I am going to do, is start eating more salads at night. The veggies this time of year are wonderful. Yum. I need to increase my HMR shakes also, they are high in protein and help me with my attitude also. Why? I don't know. I'm mental. But, the good news is it's almost Halloween time. I love the shows they put on TV and the haunted house. We are also going on a ghost tour closer to Halloween near the Whaley house.  I never made it last time. So yipppe. I don't buy Halloween candy until right before. Why keep it in the house.The left overs are taken to work. All the young doctors love it!

I only buy the halloween candy I don't like... no chocolate. Otherwise it's too tempting. It's good to have a plan!

I love this time of year. Fall and leaves. I can't wait to go to a corn maze! I hope we find one here in Utah because there were many fabulous ones in Oregon.

Your broiled cauliflower meal sounds fab! Can't wait to try that sometime.

Take care!

Who can beat this weather! I never stretch before I work out, but I know it is supposed to be better for muscles, but still that walking is great for you!

Salads are great ideas! So healthy and can be low cal if you don't overdo too much on the dressing!

I lost a lot of weight doing protein shakes a few years back (but sadly didn't keep it off, LOL), but protein does seem to stay longer with me if I eat high protein things, so I would increase your shake consumption; good idea!

I'm with you on the Halloween candy; I usually buy it that day, LOL; not sure what we will do this year though with it as far as passing out candy. The ghost tour does sound fun though!
