|Homemade artisan pizza!|
I picked up a book I had on hold. Ok. It has to do with my Downton Abbey obsession. Now that I am about to finish the last season, I think I am just clinging for dear life. It is called The Unofficial Downton Abbey Cookbook. Many of my favorite things in one package: Food, book, Downton Abbey. Sigh.
Speaking of food, this morning my daughter and I decided to make artisan pizzas from scratch. So while she went to the gym, I mixed up the dough and set it on the stove to rise. Then I went for my belly walk. I did one mile. I listened to All Classical 89.9. They were playing a Haydn Symphony, which was very pleasant to walk to! I started the day with 20 minutes of yoga. For background music, I listened to Edward Elgar's 1st Symphony, which is number 285 on Classic FM's Hall of Fame. http://halloffame.classicfm.com/2015/chart/position/285/. Lovely piece to stretch to!
When I got back we prepared four different pizzas. Two for the men in the house, with lots of meat and cheese. They both have naturally high metabolisms. Grr. For my daughter and I, we used a pesto base, with fresh greens, artichoke hearts, chicken, garlic and feta cheese.
Words can not describe the taste of this pizza in my happy mouth!
Today is 50 days of fasting from 7 p.m. to at least 7 a.m. And it is really working for me.
Still struggling with fatigue, especially in the morning. I read the spirulina powder mixed with water first thing in the morning is a good pick-me-up. So after I blog, I'm heading over to Fred Meyer's for some Spirulina and some sushi for dinner. I am also going to pick up some tennis balls. They are very useful for self massage. I have a very stiff upper back. I plan on coming home after rehearsal tonight and laying down with tennis balls on either side of my spine, feet up and my Downton Abbey Cookbook in hand. Ice water in the other hand.
Happy Tuesday! :)
