Ouuuchie! I am in pain this morning. I completely forgot how much cycling kick the booty – literally! But I got a reminder when I got up from the movie theatre seats last night and had a huge pain in the cheeks. Ouch! I commend you, hardcore cyclists, for your tolerance to pain in the lady bits.
Anyway. Yesterday was fabulous. After my outdoor extravaganza of a morning, I came back home and made lunch for the hubski and myself.
I wanted something light. All weekend long it felt like I was eating dense, carb and fat laden foods, and I needed something clean and green.
This would be a spinach, arugula, and avocado salad, topped with salsa, which was then topped with one egg yolk + two egg whites – over medium.
Delicious! However, I hadn’t fooled my stomach, and after devouring the salad, had an unpictured half Ezekiel muffin w/ jam. Ah well.
After lunch, I went to town on the cleaning front. I got out the Dyson and vacuumed the entire house. Actually, the Roomba took care of the upstairs, but that’s neither here nor there 😉
Later in the afternoon, a friend called to see if I wanted to get a pedicure. I practically leapt into her arms through the phone. It’s been a good 4 months since my last pedicure. This might not seem like a big deal, but IT IS. I get pedicures every. single. month. That’s my diva side talking, but it’s true! I felt like a brand new woman with massaged calves and hot pink toes (well, one black toe from the half marathon, with hot pink painted over it) afterward. Ahhhh 😀 We also worked on some wedding stuff for a friend.
When I got back, it was around dinner time, and since it was such a spectacular day outside, Shane suggested we grill out. Of course I said yes, because this means no cooking for me.
All I did was make the guacamole:
1 small avocado, 2 T. plain yogurt, half a lemon’s juice, hot sauce, cayenne, cumin, chili powder, and garlic salt. You can also add a chopped white onion and chopped tomatoes if your heart so desires.
Set out the chips (LOVE both of these flavors)
Puree 5 just ripe peaches in a food processor. Transfer the puree into your blender, (or just do it all in your vitamix, you lucky people who have one!) add ice, 2 T. cane sugar (or stevia, or whatever.) Add rum. Or don’t. But we did 🙂
The hubski did the rest:
Veggie burger with pickles, ketchup, and a grilled portabella, garlic bread, and grilled veggies (broccoli, carrots, snap peas)
He kinda charred the veggies… oops.
Dessert was supposed to be this:
grilled bananas s’more.
After dinner, I met a group of girls at the movies to see Sex And the City 2. Yes, this is the second time I’ve seen this in theatres. Gotta go once with eat set of girlfriends! Duh 🙂
This morning, I woke up bright and early to train a client, and then came back for a scrumptious old favorite:
Regular banana oats, with blueberries and Skippy Natural PB.
Busy day today! Got a few more clients, and lots o’ work to do!
Also, I’m having a dessert-free week this week if anyone wants to join me! The past few weeks, although a bit undocumented, I’ve been having some sort of junk before bed each night. Whether it be ice cream, chocolate covered banana chips, cookies, or whathaveyou, it’s been a lot, and it’s been making me feel pretty lethargic. Dessert-Free Week doesn’t mean no dessert, ever (that’s blasphemy!) It means no mindless eating of desserts just because it sounds like a cool thing to do. For me, dessert free week means just having a piece of dark chocolate after dinner. Not a whole mug of ice cream. Feel free to join me:D
Hope you have a lovely start to your week!
