Spinning was – – – – – great, but my thighs were killing me!!!
Before I left work, I got to try my first ever Clif bar, thanks to Lindsay:) I know…I’m so behind the times.
I knew I needed some fuel to get through the class, and this was the perfect thing.
First Impression: As soon as I opened the package, all I smelled was chocolate! And not that fake chocolate smell – it really smelled like a chocolate chip cookie!
Look at all the chocolate chips…
You know that’s gotta be good! I really enjoyed this bar – it was very chewy and had lots of little chocolate chunks in it. I wasn’t sure how the flavor would be before I opened it, but I was happily surprised! It wasn’t too sweet, but it didn’t have that weird “protein bar” taste, either. Thanks Lindsay!!!
So, spinning was awesome. I really, really like it. My butt was still a little sore from my class on Sunday, but I did okay.
The best part of this class tonight? the music. The guy teaching this class was playing some of my favorites: DMB, The Killers, etc. This one was only 45 minutes, too, but it seemed like the perfect length. I do think I need some tighter shorts, though. I was wearing some running shorts, and my inner thighs was rubbing on the seat when we were doing sitting sprints and that was not fun. I guess I need to wear stuff that fits tighter on my legs. *Note to self for next time.
Dinner was great….I am loving the longer days already. We got home around 7 pm and it was still light outside, so we opened all the windows to let the breeze in. I can’t wait to start grilling every night again.
I am calling this the Bacon-terranean Frittata, served with Crispy Kale and Potato Hash and sliced apple
This was so easy to make – I am loving frittatas. You can make them with anything in the fridge!
- 1 slice bacon, diced
- 1/4 red onion, diced
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup egg whites
- 2 tomatoes, diced
- 10 or so black olives, sliced
- 2 Tbsp fat free feta
- Cook bacon in pan until it starts to brown and crisp.
- Add in onion and let cook with bacon until bacon is done.
- Mix all the remaining ingredients together in bowl and pour over bacon/onion mixture.
- Let cook 5 minutes on medium heat, then cover pan with lid and let cook until top is set.
- Cut and serve!
This was a great flavor to do for today. With the weather all nice and springy, I loved the lightness of this frittata.
Joe & Betsy’s kale and potato hash was great, too! I didn’t transfer it to the oven tonight; I just started that in a big pot before I started the frittata and let it finish cooking while the frittata set.
Breakfast for dinner? Always a good idea. my belly is happy :)
See you tomorrow for a fun and exciting first breakfast for me!
What are you favorite bands?
My favorites – Incubus, 311, Jason Mraz (if you can get copies of his old coffee house shows – they’re amazing!), All American Rejects, Limbeck, DMB, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper….I could go on. I love good music and love concerts.
