- Being able to do fun things like go to Cubs games
- My legs that carried me through my awesome run yesterday
- Time spent relaxing with my husband
- Time spent chilling with my girls
- Already getting in my workout!
My workout, by the way, was 40 minutes on the elliptical along with some bicep and back work. Felt great!:D
Now I’m enjoying a
green purple monster with blueberries, mango, banana, GREEN Superfood, and water. Mmm mmm.
Yesterday continued on to be a pretty awesome day. I didn’t get everything done that I wanted to (hello, dirty floors!) but I had a fun time procrastinating.
I made some black bean burgers for Shane and I for lunch around 2:00 after doing some laundry I made them like the last time, but omitted the corn meal and doubled the flour. I also added hot sauce, soy sauce, onion, and green bell pepper to the mixture.
They turned out even better this time around! On top was some guac, ketchup, mustard, tomatoe, and pickle.
After some more laundry and being shamelessly lazy, I rolled out my yoga mat to do some yoga from On Demand. As soon as I set my mat out, Clarabelle came over and did her best cat stretch! I SO wish I had my camera in hand.
It was great to
roll around the floor with the pets do some yoga again. However, Niko and Clarabelle wanted to get in on the action too. At least one of them was on the mat the entire time I was practicing. No joke. It was still fun though 😀
Dinner was a new recipe I conjoled together. I’m not sure what to call it yet, but we’ll start out with shrimp and baby bello squash pasta.
I just sauteed some frozen shrimp, asparagus, portobello mushrooms, tomatoe, and spinach in a pan with some garlic and EVOO. Next, I peeled half of a summer squash and half of a zucchini for my “pasta.” At this point, I was wishing I would have told Shane to order me some pizza when he ordered his. I wasn’t too sure how it’d go, but I continued on.
Finally, I added some salt and pepper and tomatoe sauce, and heated everything up in the pan.
After adding a little parmesan cheese, I had myself a damn good meal!! I couldn’t believe how well the zucchini and squash substituted as pasta. I will definitely be making this one again.
On the side, I had some of this:
With a little of that on top:
It tasted…OK. I’m not sure if the hemp bread is an acquired taste or what, but it’s very different. I’ll eat it again, but it’s not my favorite. I was surprised too, because I like Ezekiel bread so much. The sunflower butter was kinda “meh” too. Maybe I just need to try another brand, or just give it another chance.
My favorite nut butter by far is plain old (MaraNatha) raw almond butter. What’s your favorite nutt butter?
Also – I survived the night without dessert!! It was pretty hard, especially around 9:00, when I remembered I had Annie’s Bunny Grahams in the cabinet, but I prevailed 😀 Only 6 more days
of hell to go!
What are YOU thankful for today? What’s one thing you’re looking forward to today?
