Yesterday was one of those days that I just didn’t feel like making oatmeal, eating oatmeal, or cleaning up after oatmeal. Needless to say I did have oatmeal! Instead I had a bowl of Special K Yogurt & Berries with soy milk that I topped with some dried cherries and chia seeds.
After my anti-oatmeal breakfast I headed to Stats class where I twittered about my dread for the class, the teacher, and my grade to date.
These days snacks are really hit or miss for me. Yesterday snacks were a miss. I had a later lunch that consisted of the leftover half of my Spanakopita from Sparti’s and a Pink Lady apple.
The spinach/feta pie was just as good the second time around!
After lunch I did manage to sneak a sweet treat in! Matt and I got some little packages of different kinds of chocolates and chocolate covered things while we were in Costa Rica. Naturally one of the picks was chocolate covered coffee beans (Costa Rica is famous for their coffee), so I had a packaged while I simmered dinner.
Matt and I are far from Southern – try Midwestern & New England-ish – but we still love Southern food including okra! I bought the okra with intentions to make okra fries but visions of a stewed tomato-esque dish danced in my head.
Tomatoes & Okra
- 1 pound okra [chopped]
- 2 cans diced tomatoes
- Minced onion
- Garlic Salt
- How to: Combine okra and canned tomatoes and allow to simmer in a pot. Add seasonings to taste. This would be awesome with onions and garlic, but we had none! Allow to simmer as long as you’d like and serve with some brown rice! Easy right?
After work I headed to the body pump class that we have held at the Rec Center I work at. Buzz had been going around that there was a need for an extra fitness instructor so I wanted to check out the class before I volunteered to help out.
Needless to say it was fun and a good work out! I may not be the most knowledgeable person when it comes to muscle groups and I sure don’t look like Jessica Biel but I’m going to teach the Thursday Body Pump class and see how it goes.
I’ve been teaching swimming for years so I had the concrete foundation down now I just need to update my iPod and put together a kick ass line up for Thursday’s class. So help me and out and tell me:
What are your go-to workout songs? What toning moves do you love to do?
Note: I forgot to mention that I had 4 square of Swiss chocolate after I got home from work/working out. I originally had 2 but then I went back for 2 more! Accountability!
