Today was a ho-hum day of sorts. Luckily, I was still in good spirits, because every time I caught myself ho-humming, I immediately snapped myself out of it!
I woke up and had a bicep, back, hammies, and glutes strength session planned in the locale of the upstairs workout room.
After about 45 minutes worth of rows, rear delt flies, various bicep curls, dead lifts, hammie curls etc, I showered, dressed and prepared some grub.
And by preapred, I mean I scooped a cups worth of steel cut oats I made yesterday in bulk for this week and heated it up in the microwave. I topped it with peanut butter and coconut butter, naturally.
Strength training makes me hungry. At least today it did. My appetite was in 6th gear! I squashed it with an unpictured apple and mini luna bar before devouring leftovers for lunch!
Mmm – Spinach, artichoke, asparagus bake from dinner on Sunday night!
Amazing. I admit that I had double what’s on that plate.
Work went by in kind of a haze. I felt like my brain was foggy for the better part of the afternoon. And my client I was supposed to train after work is still sick, but that’s OK, because I just wanted a glass of red wine. We were out of red wine, so muscato will do just fine:)
You can see I’m one of those types who immediately throws their hair back and puts on a T-shirt and sweats after work. Luckily the hubski doesn’t mind Or so he says… What can I say? I’d rather be comfy!
We threw around what we wanted to do for dinner during our hour of happy and not surprisingly decided to grill out. Well, Shane grilled out, and I grilled in…the oven.
Have you guys seen the nut butter parsnip fries recipe Angela had on her blog the other day?
Well I tried them with a mix of carrots and sweet potato, and omg they are out of this world delicious. I had to force myself to stop eating them or else I’d get sick. SO. GOOD.
I also tossed some Brussels sprouts in olive oil spray, salt, and pepper, and roasted them at 400º for about 10 minutes, flipping after five.
And Shane cooked my veggie burger on the little section of the grill where no meat is allowed.
All togetha nah.
Simple and delicious!
Side note about veggie burgers. Lara posted this article about the dangers of non organic veggie burgers, and I gotta admit, it had me cringing as I ate my non organic Boca burger tonight. Mmm neurotoxins…
After dinner I took Niko on her evening walk (she had a post-breakfast walk, too…trying to get her more exercise:)) and now I’m writing this post! It’s crazy…it’s only 7:30 and I have the whole night to relax! This never happens two days in a row! Weird…
How long does it take you to change into sweats/comfy clothes after getting home? Me? Like 5 minutes, tops
Hope you guys have a wonderful rest of your night and a fab Tuesday!!
