Workout – hit up the gym this morning. 4 easy treadmill miles. 20 minute strength circuit. I left Jillian behind today and made up my own super fantastic circuit this morning. I’m sure Jillian would be proud. I pick 4 or 5 exercises out of the recesses of my brain. not really the recesses, more like the ones that are front and center and pop out the fastest. I repeat them 3 or 4 times or until I get really bored. day 2 of sticking to the less is more plan. see you next week marathon training. job done.
Little green monster has been harrassing me and screaming in my face ever since I walked back in the door. I haven’t figured out what to do with him yet. so I just keep feeding him sugar and hoping he will crash eventually.
he is part monkey.
I went to the grocery store yesterday and actually had a LIST and dinners planned out for the week. mind blowing. I don’t know what happened to me. there is actually a possibility that I won’t have to go to the store 12 times this week. I might have gotten my act together yesterday. still TBD. to be determined.
This blog – Oh She Glows – is quickly becoming one of my favorites to pull recipes and ideas from. That’s where 3 of my dinner meals came from this week. Last night I made this 15 minute creamy avocado pasta. I’m not going to say any thing more about it other than – go make it. go make it. now. the only other thing I will say about it is if you don’t like sprouted grain pasta or ancient grain pasta, use something else. like barilla plus. other than that – go make it. of course I doubled it. I double everything. so good. and so green.
I have a couple more recipes lined up from her and one from Food Network. then I’m banking on leftovers and a couple nights of spontaneous plans that get me off the dinner hook and through the week. I will share as the week goes on.
To keep the green thing going, I thought I’d try a green smoothie this morning for breakfast. I know I’m like 10 years behind on this one – but Oh My Goodness!!! It was good!!! Spinach and everything.
I think I’m going to have to make this one again today. and for breakfast every morning until I can’t stand to look at my blender anymore. yum.
And here’s a little trick my daughter did this morning – little nifty spiffy pants that she is. magic. she made it stand up all by itself. we are so proud of her. and her many accomplishments.
Upward and onward with this day. It is supposed to be in the 50’s here?!?! That might force me outside for another little run later. but probably not because I have 3 kidlings that need tending to. good thought though.
Talk to me people!
