Spring Fever

Some people got to relax today. After work I went to Hudson River Park and got a little sunshine and snapped some pictures. I walked about a mile and a half today. I went to bed early last night, but got up about an hour and a half earlier than the alarm this morning. Knowing I had to go to the office, I couldn’t get back to sleep. In about a week and a half the tax season madness will be over for this year. If I were not eating better and walking as much as i am, I know I would be more tired and stressed than I am. But it was nice to get a little daylight outside today, although it didn’t seem to be as warm as forecast.

For dinner I made oyster stew. I used whole milk and skim milk mixed (is that equal to 2% or what?) and half a cup of really fresh, plump oysters, a little bit of onion and a pat of butter to tenderize the onions. A little high on animal fat, but it was tasty. I made a puree of parsnip and yellow squash, which was one of the best things I have ever tasted. So simple (steam the two together, blend thoroughly with about a teaspoon of olive oil, salt and pepper. Perfect.) I also had some steamed broccoli and cauliflower. Altogether about 550 calories. That puts me at about 1300 for the day so far.

Later I will have a smoothie of skim milk and frozen strawberries and be right on target for food intake today. Probably a little heavy on the dairy, but I don’t eat dairy but about a couple of days a week.
