Hey guys!! Well if you’re reading this, you must have made it through your Monday! Congrats!
My Monday turned out not so bad. The day was busy as ever, but I took it in stride. I honestly think practicing more yoga lately has already made me…not so much a more patient person yet, but a person who doesn’t react to situations or dilemmas so rashly. While I was doing yoga Sunday night to one of Dave Farmar’s podcast, he said a quote about accepting the situation, but not absorbing it – he even related it to receiving a not so pleasant email – and not letting it get to you! It might sound funny, but I totally went back to that quote several times yesterday🙂
I had grand plans to spend a little QT with my elliptical last night. I even got on it for a few minutes, but in the back of my mind, I knew I had a TON of personal business work I had to take care of, and I just couldn’t concentrate. My workout took one for the team, and I hopped off the elliptical and got started on my work. I’m glad I did, because alas, when I finished up it was nearing 10:00 – this party girl’s bedtime 😉
Of course I did take a break for a little dinner!
I’ve had an acorn squash sitting atop of the fridge for a while now, so I decided to put that to good use. I just cut in half and roasted the little “bowls” at 400 degrees for 35 minutes – one for me and one for the husband. In my squashie bowl I put a tablespoon of some black beans, tamari, maple syrup, a little sea salt, and Earth Balance that I cooked on the stove real quick when it had about 10 minutes left.
Turned out deeelicious! Loved the sweet n salty combo.
And on the side I had a smallish salad of spinach, broccoli, red pepper, mushrooms and tomatoes in an organic honey Dijon dressing.
I’m really loving this salad dressing- so good. In fact, this salad was so good that it convinced me to make the same thing and pack it up for lunch today!
…but I need to get Goddess dressing back in my life and in mah salad bowl!
After doing a little more computer work, I caught up on some Bachelor premier that I DVR’d earlier. I told myself I wasn’t gonna watch, but I just can’t resist a little trash TV. I’d been avoiding my cell phone for fear that I’d gotten a spoiler text telling me which gems he let go. Ohhh, the suspense 😉
Well today should be a fun one! I’ve got some personal errands to run over lunch, hitting up the gym to get a quick run in after work, then heading to another gym for an hour or so long trainer shadow session 😀
Have a great day all!
Do you watch mindless, brain-cell killing TV? If so, what’s your favorite one? I think I’d have to go with a tie between Housewives and the Kardashians. Sometimes its nice not to have to use the brain, haha.
