I loved reading the feedback from yesterday’s post regarding the scale. To clarify, I do think weighing yourself serves a purpose… to tell you what you weigh. But it won’t tell you how much muscle you have (even those scales that tell you your percentage of body fat are WAY off 99% of the time) and like those Operation Beautiful notes say, it won’t tell you your worth. I used to get obsessive about the scale, which is why now I choose to mostly avoid it. And it works for me 🙂
Before I go into all the dEElicious foods I’ve been eating, because I really have had some awesome meals lately, let me tell you about yesterday’s jog. Jog? Brittany, don’t you usually stick to wogging? Why yes, yes I do, but yesterday when I pulled out my Couch to 5K app, it said today’s plan was for me to walk 5 minutes, JOG FOR 20 MINUTES, and cool down by walking for 5.
How did we just jump from 5 minute increments of jogging to 20 flippin’ minutes straight??! I was nervous.
But my running partner was fired up and stepped up to lead the way… oh to have the energy of that pup.. 😉
Five minute walking warm-up…
hear the ding…
begin to jog…
focus on the music…
don’t look at the time…
keep a steady pace…
jam out to Michael Jackson…
AHHHHhhhH!!(@&%#(*#_)(#_% I DID IT!!!!
I was SO proud. Given I jogged at a snail’s pace, and probably could have walked faster than my jog, but I DID it. I pretty much walked around for the rest of the day like I ruled the world. 😀
Ok, to food… I created an awesome lunch using leftovers (don’t you love it when you can do that?)
I started with a bed of spinach, leftover pasta, cherry tomatoes, and leftover pesto.
I microwaved it for 1 minute (which made me realize how long it’s been since I’ve used the microwave for anything… funny observation). Then I sprinkled in some feta and mixed it all up.
A great thing about making a ton of pesto, is that you can use it all week long! 🙂
For dinner, I was feeling like a fiesta! I was on my own (Hubbs was working late), so I went meatless (sounds kinda scandalous, doesn’t it? 😉 ). I’ve noticed I’ve been eating less and less meat lately. I don’t know why… it hasn’t been intentional… but I haven’t missed it. Don’t get me wrong though, if you stuck a big juice (antibiotic free, grass fed) filet in front of me, I’d chow down!
Romaine, avocado, sauteed onions & peppers, vegetarian refried beans, salsa, light sour cream & some tortilla chips on the side (unpictured).
Then there was this morning… for some odd reason I was wanting dessert instead of breakfast. And oH bOy, did I make a doozie of a “breakfast”.
I started with this:
then made some of this:
& wanted to use these guys, too:
French Toast Banana Wonderful!
Are you drooling yet?
It was awesome… and I think I may be full until dinner. We’ll see 😉
Koda even went a little crazy when her nose detected the PB&Co:
The only human food bug ever gets is peanut butter, so she goes a little crazy when she gets a whif!
I’ve been thinking about trying new food foods recently… on my list is brussel sprouts (can you believe I’ve never had them??) and millet (mostly because I don’t even understand what it is- haha :)).
What food do you want to try that you haven’t ever had before?
