Fast Food and Exercise


We are getting our exercise at the moment in the garden ... An old lawn at the front is now being converted into a pebble-stone walkway. A large circular border in the centre of the lawn has been created and planted with Dahlia , Fuscia and annuals. 2 1/2 cubic metres of medium sized pebbles are now being Listed from mound into barrow by spade and then moved to the lawn area for spreading over week matting ... Good honest back breaking work ...

The gym has been re-joined for another year. McD had agreed to join me in moring training sessions before work ... The idea being we get it out of the way for the day ratehr than wanting to be doing anything but gym work in these glorious summer evenings we are experiencing now and hopefully for the next 3 or 4 moths into 2008. this starts as a trial run on Friday moning and in earnest come the start of next week ... The 7th will be a big day..Weigh-in, Gym and Work all start then ......

I'm surprised at the quality of the healthy recipes these days. . The recipe below while taking some pre-planning as it requires marinating the meat is cokked very quickly and only around 350 Cals for a serving ... Add salad or cooked vegetables and the meal is complete ....

Miso-Marinated Beef Medallions

2 350gram Fillets cut into medallions

1 Cup Dark Red Miso

1 Tbs ginger, minced

1 tsp Chilli flakes

Drop of Sake or water

Mixed salad greens

Combine the miso, ginger and chilli in a large bowl and thin it with some sake or water until the mixture is pasty. Spread the paste onto the meat and refridgerate for several hours. on a pre heated grill cook for 3 or 4 minutes on each side. Serve on a bed of mixed salad or cooked green vegetables ..
