Get outside while you can!

23 Oct

No matter what you eat to stay fit and healthy, you can’t forget to get outside weather permitting and exercise. We all were told to go outside and get some fresh air when we were kids, I think it is still a great idea today.  I was fortunate enough to be in New England this weekend and the leaves were beautiful!  I am so lucky to have an extra weekend of fall because in Minnesota the leaves had already fallen.

So remember to pack your sneakers when you travel and grab some sunshine and exercise at every opportunity.

 

I am not a runner but I walk pretty fast and keep track of my walks on the Nike + app on my iphone. It is great to see my progress as my pace increases. Then all you need is some great music or a talkative partner and you are good to go for miles.

I was not always out in the countryside walking.  On Saturday I walked what seemed like  miles as I window shopped  along Newbury Street in Boston!

Dining out with Friends or so I thought!

5 Oct

Look at what they are eating! Even in my carb heydays, I don’t think I ate desserts like this. Maybe my talking about low carb eating during dinner and how great it was drove them to it?  Maybe I said too much and this is their way of shutting me up? I have to say it looked so good, I was getting weak. But somehow I just have this resolve because I feel so much better not eating like that anymore. Somedays I wonder where is Patty and who is this person I have become? Bon Appetite ladies…I promise to lighten up!

The Duomo in Milan, Italy

9 Sep

The Duomo in Milan was spectacular. A friend told me that being on the rooftop reminded her of being in a sand castle.  Such a great description! Located in the very center of Milan this cathedrals construction began in 1386 and continued until 1813.

Below are photos taken from a rooftop tour of the Duomo.

Eagles in northern Wisconsin!

I can’t always be thinking of food. Here is an eagle hanging on his favorite branch. Perfect fishing spot for him.
