Inspired by bloggers
Last night, I fully intended to blog about Wednesday and Thursday but I started working in my second bedroom (from hell) and by the time I was done, I was way too tired to do anything!
That will be a later post 😉
So, Wednesday…I made my regular oats with PB and topped it with a mix of fruit that I had left in the refrigerator (blueberries, kiwi, cantaloupe, etc).
It was okay but I found all the fruit tastes to be a little overwhelming. I’m glad I got to try it with kiwi though because that was something I’d been thinking about (since kiwi is a good source of Vitamin E) but I think I will keep kiwi out of my oatmeal 😉
Mid-morning coffee and cheese!
I had intended to do a workout on Wednesday but my body just wasn’t having it. I wasn’t sore or tired, I just felt something that told me to take it easy for once 😉
I did go for a nice 15-minute walk on my break at work just to get the blood flowing and to talk to God for a bit, which is always refreshing.
For lunch, I had a sweet potato topped with a tri-bean mix and fat free sour cream…yum.
Later in the afternoon, I snacked on some plain Fage greek yogurt with almond butter 🙂
Before heading out to meet the girls, I decided to do Yoga Download’s 20-minute yoga for runners since I was feeling the need to de-stress and stretch myself out.
I have to say…I do not like that one. I’ve tried it a few times now and I can’t say for sure what it is but about halfway through, I am done with it and I go on and do other moves on my own.
I sat in pigeon for each leg for a long time and it felt great…my hips always get so tight and I neglect them more than my other muscles for some reason. But regardless of the program, I felt great afterwards and very relaxed.
When we got to Courtney’s, a couple of the girl’s were having bad weeks, so we decided it was cause enough to have a glass (or two) of vino!
Before we sat down for dinner, two of the girls made a very important trip to buy a Powerball ticket, since the jackpot was nearly $250 million! We didn’t win, but were already deciding what we’d do with the money.
Aleta was excited 🙂
And now…drumroll…we ate dinner, which included my Spinach Chickpea Curry.
It was delicious! The only thing I could complain about I guess is that it didn’t really taste like Indian food I am used to. But it was very good. The tofu, chickpeas and everything took on the flavor of the spices I used, I could really taste the cumin too. I think next time I would add more curry paste!
I stuffed some of it into a pita pocket and we had red potatoes on the side 🙂
For dessert…RED VELVET CUPCAKES!
They were a little small, so I had two 😉 And also a piece of dark chocolate when I got back home.
Sorry guys, I am out of time. I will give you a recap of Thursday (and today) later on!
Have a great day 🙂
