Even though boat beers and holiday feasts were a plenty this weekend, there was still enough hiking, swimming, and gun lifting for a drop on the scale (hurrah!). But weekday sedentary life means getting back to it where
dieting eating responsibly and exercising are concerned.
Last week I experimented with my calendar, scheduling work-outs, meals, blog posts, and chores. I put my alarm clock (cell phone) in the kitchen, forcing myself to get out of bed early, and managed to add an extra 30-60 minutes to each day. I rushed home during my lunch breaks to utilize that hour as well. People aren’t joking when they say the calendar is your fitness plan friend. It’s the truth!
FoodFash Dill Egg Salad (yields 2 servings)
4 boiled eggs (toss 2 of the yolks), chopped
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
1/4 red onion, finely chopped (I used white and wish I hadn’t)
1 teaspoon dill
2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
salt and pepper to taste
I had never used Greek yogurt in egg salad before, but after using some of the goods that Chobani sent me last week to make yumtastic tzatziki, I had zero hesitation. Using plain yogurt in place of mayo or Vegenaise in protein salads really freshens things up. And not only are fresh meals perfect for summer, they’re also perfect for this little birthday bikini challenge I’ve got going on right now!
