Feeling High on Health

I arrived home last night to chaos.

Ok, I exaggerate, but only slightly. David actually picked up as much as he could so I didn’t have a heart attack, but still, the house is covered with a thin layer of dust, brown paper is rolled all over the floors and, oh yeah, our bathrooms are totally ripped apart (which I actually know is a good thing, but my poor little neat freak heart is taking it hard). Did I mention we are redoing our powder room too? At least we still have the sink for now.

David and I have temporarily moved into the guest room, which means things are scattered between rooms and all over the halls.

chaosSo though I am fully aware that it is a #firstworldproblem, it is indeed a little chaotic.

Still I felt pumped up to get my health on. I guess I’m sensing summer creeping closer and though I’m not a BIKINI SEASON BOOTCAMP kind of gal, I do feel an urge to clean things up a bit (thanks Mom for the spoonfuls -plural- of cookie dough and dad, for the midweek martini!).

I hit up Burn Bootcamp this morning for metabolic conditioning. There were 10 stations and the goal was to get 100 reps at each in under 3 minutes. I managed to hit that goal in 8/10 stations which I felt pretty good about, but I’ll be darned if half burpees didn’t almost do me in. I really missed this special form of torture of the past few days while I was away.

High on endorphins, Kaitlyn and I hit up Whole Foods.

whole foods list

I didn’t have time to rewrite my grocery list neatly or even spell andouille correctly but my chicken scratch worked well enough to pull together the necessary items for this week’s meals, which are:

Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa and Roasted Broccoli

Grilled Mahi Tacos with Roasted Asparagus

Steak Fajitas

Homemade Spaghetti over Spaghetti Squash

Pulled Pork BBQ on Sweet Potato Buns

Sausage and Veggie Bake

Buffalo Chicken Salads

whole foods cartI ran into my friend Courtney while I was there, which reminded me to also pick up some of this sauerkraut that she introduced me to.

Oh my goodness y’all, it’s SO good!! It’s smelly, yes, but absolutely delicious. I ate it with a leftover chicken sausage for lunch.

I also got to try some Lenny Boy Brewing Beet Kombucha, which considering my disdain for beets, I was surprised at how much I liked it!
