Seventeen lemons

I feel like my life just threw seventeen lemons in my direction.
I took eight and made lemonade out of them.
I took four and threw them back … I don’t need those.
I took three and made lemon meringue pie out of them. Tasty, right?
The other two lemons? They’re in my lap. I’m wondering what I’m supposed to do with them, and just kinda sitting, waiting, watching, and holding on.

In other news, five weeks post surgery I’m feeling good. I’m FINALLY feeling almost normal. I can’t wait to start training again next week! Woo hoo!

Thanks to last month’s Fitness magazine, I have found some fantastic breakfasts that will not only fill you up, but do so with fewer than 300 calories.

Strawberry-Banana & Flax Smoothie

Blend until smooth and drink!

Waffle with fresh blueberries & lemon syrup

  • 3/4 c. blueberries
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 whole-grain frozen waffle (4 in) toasted
  • 1 8-ounce glass skim milk or light soy milk

Mash blueberries with fork and mix w/maple syrup and lemon juice. Top waffle with blueberry mixture, serve with milk.

Toast with walnut and pear spread

  • 1/2 c. low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 tbs chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 med pear, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 slice whole-grain bread, toasted

Mix cottage cheese, walnuts, pear and honey (for smoother texture, use blender). Spread on your toast.

Fitness magazine has a really great website that I recommend you check out. With exercise tips, workout descriptions, and recipes galore, this site is a Godsend for those looking to improve their health.
