I was a crazy woman again today and woke up at 4:30 to meet my friend, Heidi at the gym. I cranked out a 3.1 mile tempo run and then did some elliptical. It was early, but it felt great! And today, I know I won’t have time to run after work, as I’m cooking The Fitnessista
‘s enchiladas, then I have a jewelry/candle party to go to 😀
Now, as I write (and as a recovery drink,) I’m downing a Green Monster. I put together the ingredients last night:
I had just enough spinach left, so I piled everything in the spinach container. Also in the GM pool was a frozen banana, some ice cubes, and some organic apple juice.
I’d show you the finished product, but trust me, it tastes a lot better than it looks! Blueberries always seem to do that…
I’m very sad to say that third time’s
a charm sucked just as much as the first two times. Yes, the quinoa dinner was a big fail! It was such a good idea in theory:
-asparagus, mushrooms, and onion in red sauce
I thought it was going to be great! I mean, it looked super pretty:D
Alas, it only made it this far:
After that, I threw the rest out. Kids, don’t try this one at home
That’s it! I’m done with Quinoa 😦
So after those few craptastic bites, I opted for, you guessed it, more leftovers (had to keep with the theme today.)
I had more blueberry pancakes – the last of em!
SO good, and hey, I didn’t have to choke em down 😀
Oh well, I’ve had so many dinner successes in a row, I guess I was ready for a dinner fail 😛
Nothing a glass of Chardonnay can’t fix 😉
(Sorry for the darkness, I took it in my basement bar with my iPhone.) I enjoyed this crisp, light, wine while vegging out with the hubski. We watched Surfer, Dude with Matthew McConauhhey. It turned out actually pretty funny! OK, and a wee bit stupid. It ended up being a nice relaxing way to end the Monday – the way they all should be.
Niko even joined in on the movie night fun 🙂
-same story with the dark picture.
So now it’s time go back to work! *le sigh* Although, I’m going to be doing an experiment today at work for the blog. (Don’t worry, boss, I won’t be slacking or multi-tasking) I’ll let you all know what I’m talking about for one of tomorrow’s posts! 🙂
Have a fab Tuesday everyone!!
