Even though Tuesday’s are my favorite day of the week, today has been kind of a stick in the mud. There is just a lot going on and a lot of things the husband and I are thinking through right now…but one thing I’m thankful for is that we get to do it together.
So, instead of talking about the less than stellar parts of the day, let’s talk about the highlights!
I made it to the gym this morning in time to lift a few weights (today was arms) and get in a 35 minute workout on the treadmill. I did a little incline walking, non-incline speed walking and running. And then I came home and had an cold and creamy green smoothie.
For some reason green smoothies have been missing from my life lately, and I’m not sure why. But today I got a serious craving, and it really hit the spot. Refreshing.
A few hours later the husband surprised me with a lunch date at “the bread place.”ahhhhh.
This sandwich was stacked with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, cucumbers, sprouts and pesto. One of those kinds of meals that you finish and then wish you could relive every. single. bite.
Or is that just me?
Do you ever have those nights when dinner just doesn’t seem to come together very well? For every meal you think of to fix, there is some reason why you can’t make it happen. You’re out of hummus. Or the bread is molded. Or you forgot to pick up that green pepper at the store.
Or you char your kale chips to a crispy black.
The kitchen was quickly filling with smoke, so I snatched the baking sheet out of the oven and raced it out onto the back deck. Suddenly have no idea why I was standing outside in the cold, barefoot with a smoking hot sheet of blackened kale in my hand, I balanced it on the deck railing and hightailed it back inside!
And now, 3 hours later, I’m remembering that I never went back out to retrieve it. Our neighbors must think we are so weird.
Anyway, so dinner ending up looking like this.
roasted potato rounds, corn, steamed broccoli and steamed green beans
This meal was seriously lacking in protein, but by this point I really could have cared less. Sometimes you just gotta roll with it.
What did you have for dinner tonight? Let’s hear it!
