Look how I found Maggie sleeping this afternoon:
Haha! Her body was jammed into the crack of the couch. Don’t worry, I freed her!
Lunch was AMAZING today! Of course, I had to dig into the special shipment of Amy’s Kitchen products I received this morning. Although all the products look tasty, I wanted something on the lighter side so I chose:
Amy’s Indian Samosa Wrap, which I heated in the oven per the instructions. I served it with a nice crispy salad.
Now, the only samosas I’ve had were at Indian restaurants as appetizers. They are typically fried, but this samosa was a yummy, crispy wrap.
My previous experiences with frozen foods led me to believe this would be soggy, but it wasn’t! And the filling was rich and flavorful. I was very impressed. I checked my grocery store this afternoon to see if they carried these (that’s how much I liked them!) and although I didn’t see this flavor, I did spot some Amy’s Burritos… Yay!
After lunch + more work, I had a snack:
Nature’s Path Organic Flax Path Pumpkin Raisin Crunch with skim milk.
And once that snack settled I drove to the gym for a nice, non-impact workout. 🙂
Running Hiatus Workout #8
First, I did my strength moves.
- 20 regular push-ups
- 60 bicycle crunches
- 10 plank to push ups
- 15 leg extension with sit ups – right side
- 15 leg extension with sit ups – left side
And then I jumped in the pool!
- 20 laps (1,000 meters) in 30 minutes
One aspects of swimming that I’m really getting into is the fact that… I suck at swimming! And that’s so motivating to me. This is something that I can focus on, train for, and (hopefully) improve at!
My post-workout snack was inspiration by Angela at Oh She Glows:
If you are not reading Angela’s blog, you are missing out! It’s in my top three favorite blogs actually! :) My green smoothies never taste that great, and hers look fantastic, so I looked up her recipes and followed the simplest one to the T.
My Green Monster contained:
- 1 cup Almond Breeze (unsweetened)
- 1 tablespoon milled flax seeds
- 2 cups kale
- 1 banana
So delish! Seriously, I inhaled this smoothie. One of the things I’ve noticed about my diet lately is that I’m falling back into my yogurt/granola and cereal TRAP. I eat WAYYY too much granola and cereal, and I don’t like the way processed foods like that make me feel, so I’m going to try to eat more of these healthy green smoothies. I heart fruits and veggies! 🙂
On that note, my dehydrator is about to get a workout. I just bought so much fruit to dehydrate and I can’t wait to see what happens! Stay tuned.
Have a wonderful Friday!
