Last night after training an impromptu client, I was so tempted to just pick up Chipotle for dinner. Quick and convenient.
But then I thought about the $100 I spent on groceries this weekend and just couldn’t justify getting carry outs for the second time this week.
All I did was: boil two organic chicken breasts in some water, and then tossed them in the kitchenaide stand mixer along w/ Mexican spices, shredded cheese, sour cream, and salsa. After about 45 seconds on “stir,” I had seasoned, spiced, sauced, and shredded chicken for the tacos:
So easy. So good.
My Last Bowl of Ice Cream
I also had dessert last night…as I do every single night. It was yummy. Just as it is every single night.
Now, as some of you might know, today is Ash Wednesday – the start of Lent. While I am not a Catholic (I grew up Lutheran, but now Shane and I go to a non-denominational church) I decided I was still going to participate in lent this year.
I’ve been thinking for quite a while now about what I was going to give up for lent. First, I thought of giving up wine. But then Shane suggested getting a new wine fridge and it was like a sign from God telling me not to nix the wine. (is it horrible to joke about that? )
I wanted it to be something that would actually be a sacrifice, and thus the choice was pretty easy. To make it official, I decided to vlog about (Niko makes an appearance, too…dog vlog!)
And just to qualify what counts as a sweet:
- ice cream
- baked goods
Basically, anything that can qualify as a “dessert” and has added sugar. Here goes nothin’!…
Have a great day, all! Mine is starting out bright and early because I couldn’t sleep. I plan on getting my workout in before an afternoon client, so I’ve just been drinking coffee and experimenting with a homemade face mask (gotta share that one with ya!) I’ve got a client to train here in a little bit, though, so I better get ready!
Do you give up anything for Lent? Will you be giving up anything this year?
Do you think I’m insane for giving up sweets?
