Dinner and planning for nicer weather

Homemade kielbasa and Costco kale cabbage brussel sprout mix

Just cooked the rest of the bag of Costco mix below with 4 oz of some kielbasa I made to give away as Christmas gifts. I mean I can’t give all of it away it took me two days to make! Anyway cooked it with a little spray of oil 10 minutes on medium high. Put some a small amount of mustard over it after I took the picture.

22.5 miles, 5614 ft, 6 peaks

During my hike today I talked to Ashley, looking into doing a 2-3 day backpacking trip. We would hit Galehead, North and South Twins, Mount Guyot where there is a shelter, West Bond, Mount Bond! So in two days we can knock out 6 peaks! The Guyot shelter is 10.8 miles into a 22.5 mile hike, it is perfect!

Hiking and Breakfast/Lunch

Went on a 6 mile walk, pretty funny how a while ago this would have been a serious workout for me. Now it was just a walk! The amazing thing is how many calories you burn on a low steady burn. See below 2 hours I burned 800 calories and barely broke a sweat vs 800 calories in an hour I wanted to die, sweating in what my kickboxing instructor calls effort puddles.

Salad kit but cooked it!

I forgot to take a picture of breakfast but I had oatmeal with apples cut up and cinnamon. 3/4 of a cup of skim milk I found was perfect, going to add a tablespoon of chia seeds to tomorrow’s batch.

Trying to find new ways to keep things fresh, I was in Costco buying out weekly package of chicken tenderloins to eat. It just so happens one package of chicken fills one sheet pan and fills my grill one time and it lasts us about one week! I love it when all things like that line up!

Anyway the above package has broccoli, kale, green cabbage and Brussel sprouts all shredded up. I tossed them in a pan with a spray of oil and sautés it for about 10 minutes and threw in the grilled chicken. Put part of it in a wrap with a tablespoon of feta and it was pretty good. Ate what didn’t fit in the burrito on the side and it was delicious. I also bought an Asian Napa cabbage based one I am going to try for dinner with some of the kielbasa I made for dinner. Signed up for kickboxing tomorrow. Going to make it for real, Ben is doing the class he is one of my favorite trainers. I also want to get in a 5k run at some point very soon.
