Saturday, what a day!

I got up at 5:10 this morning and put my walking shoes on!

I took a different route today, because I knew the roads would be deserted. I actually had a paved sidewalk for about half of my walk. Nice. Don't have to worry about potholes and sandy patches.

And I did the C25K Week 2 Day 3!

Since I decided to "run" at my own pace, I can do the whole thing. I've got this little OCD thing I do when I run. I count to 20 four times. Then I count down from twenty. And I'm usually done before I hit "Blast off!" (I run for 90 seconds in the second week) Fun!

Felt really good, and I beat the heat! It was 30º C (86ºF) this morning when I got up. And it's about 39ºC (102ºF) now. So it's a little cooler than it was yesterday. I think it must have gone up to 42ºC (107ºF) yesterday. And I know some days we will probably get up to 44ºC (112ºF) this summer. By the way, these temperatures are measured in the shade, not out in the sunshine. And yes, you can actually fry an egg on the sidewalk. My SIL tried it once, but didn't eat it.

I finally made Roasted Vegetables today. YUM! I added potatoes because the kids said they wouldn't eat it otherwise. Since my meal was meatless (the others got some, but I chose not to), I put some light cheese over my serving. It was good!



Dessert was watermelon. One of the best things about summer!

I probably won't write again until Monday. I'm tracking my food and exercise and will post my weigh in then!

Have a fantastic weekend!



  1. Great job, Casey! And the food looks yummy!!

    Enjoy the remainder of your weekend.

  2. Following through with your exercise routine after a 5:30 AM wakeup call deserves a gold medal, Casey! You are doing terrific at following through. I need to learn from that!

  3. Wow that is an early morning! Well done :) Great food choices and exercise too! It is so motivating when both go well

  4. haven't been around but looks like your doing great ! Keep that determination up!

    Tada ~

  5. The roasted veggies look delicious! I play mind games with myself when I'm running, too! It helps pass the time!
