Carving and Cardio

Thanks everyone for all of your comments or just for stopping by to read!

I mentioned that I went to carve pumpkins with a friend the other night and I forgot my camera!  But I took a few shots at home.  I used one of those patterns and I swear I picked the hardest one.  I guess I won’t be a professional pumpkin carver any time soon.

It turned out ok, though.

I think Hunter wants to eat the pumpkin.  He kept sniffing it and would run over to it when I wasn’t looking. I’m willing to bet if I left him unsupervised long enough, he’d chow down.

Sadly, today was the first day I dragged my sorry butt to the gym all week.  It’s better than nothing right?  I tried out a new cardio routine today to keep my ADD self from getting bored.  I did 20min on the elliptical, 15min on the rower and 15min intervals on the stair mill and 5 minutes of stretching.  I have to say, time flew by!  Thanks for the idea Janetha!  It was a fun little workout especially since I brought my recent copy of Women’s Health to read while on the elliptical.

I was starving when I got home and immediately grabbed a banana and some left over apple slices.

My new favorite type of apple is Braeburn.  They are so crisp and just a bit tart.  I hate mushy apples.  Blech.

I also put together a tuna pita sandwich.  I mixed up a can of albacore tuna, chopped apple, broccoli slaw, dill, feta and a bit of light mayo.  Kind of a strange combination, but it was quite good!  I added the mixture to a pita with some spinach.

Everything but the kitchen sink tuna salad.  Sometimes, it’s fun to play with your food.

It’s been kind of windy and rainy lately, (which I don’t mind) so I haven’t spent anymore time outside then I had to.  It was actually sunny today and I decided to take Hunter for a walk after I’d gotten some food in me.

I grabbed my camera to snap some fall pictures along the way.

Ready to go.

It was a leisurely little walk.  Hunter is easy to please.  He takes picture taking very seriously.  And yes, he wears bandannas on a regular basis.

I don’t know if I’m going to dress up this year, but here’s a picture of Jeremy and I a year back:

I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend!


What are your weekend plans?

What do you do to avoid boredom at the gym?

  4. Love the pumpkin! I think you could definitely pass for a professional carver! ;-)I didn't make a jack-o-lantern this year, but I'm planning on making a pumpkin pie with a REAL pumpkin later this week, so I think I'll get my carving action in then. Haha love the pic of you and Jer! Did end up wearing a costume?Counting down the weeks till I see you!
