Last night I meant to get in a half hour of upper body strength training, but instead decided to finish the laundry that I procrastinated on Sunday night. Nice to get it out of the way 🙂
Then all the sudden it was time for Niko’s grooming appointment!
I decided to go with a mobile grooming company who comes to your house to groom your dog. I’m never going back to the drop off method again! Niko usually shakes like a leaf when I drop her off to get groomed – in my mind it’s a sign that they do awful things to her while I’m out and about, and the whole time she’s there, I can’t shake that anxiety. Well, problem solved. This grooming company pulls up to your house in a big truck, walks up to the door, has you bring the pupster out to the truck, and does their thing!
She didn’t look scared at all! In fact, she warmed right up to him right off the bat.
Being the proud mama I am, I had to take some glamour shots.
Work it, work it… Ok…so they chopped her. To be fair, though, I just told the dude to trim her up, and mentioned it’s been a while since she’s had her last grooming. Oh well, at least she’s matt free! We immediately took the bows out after her photoshoot. How can those be comfortable?!
While Niko was getting so fresh and so clean, clean, I was in the kitchen concocting up another his and hers dinner. Tonight’s pair were: Burgers! I present to you…
The Vegetarian Big Mouth Burger
Looks amazing, right? Oh, it was!
I started out by grilling a veggie burger alongside a sliced up portabello mushroom:
And then topped it with everything but the kitchen sink! Ok, well maybe just sliced tomato, sprouts, mustard, avocado, and jack cheese 😀 For a side, I baked up some sweet potato fries:
And for the Shane, I made the same thing, except sub veggie burger for hamburger:
It was super good, and incredibly filling! No dessert for this girl last night! After doing a few things around the house, the hubski and I setlled in the basement to watch last night’s One Tree Hill…throughout which I started reading my ACE Personal Trainer Manual. Yep, before the class has even started! I feel so studious.
*if my parents are reading this right now, they’re thinking, “who is this and what have they done with my daughter?!” I was a big procrastinator in college. I always got it done, and got good grades, but I was always about pushing it to to the very last minute. Driven by deadlines, I am.
Well I’m going to try and get some strength training in before I get ready for work! I hope you all have a fantastic Tuesday! 😀
