Today was a doozie of a day. Thankfully, the meal was cooked when we got home! I honestly wasn’t even going to blog tonight since Lost is on, but it’s a recap show so, what the hay.
We had BodyPump after work and it was killer. I did 20 lbs on the squat and back/hamstrings track tonight!!! That’s the most I’ve ever done in this class – I can’t believe I did it! It was hard to get through the tracks, but I was able to show Nick my cute little elbow sweat droplets after the squat track :) I was bustin’ butt tonight – literally! ha
We had to go back by Nick’s office after class so he could get a paper submitted and we ended up not leaving town to head home until 8 pm! We got home at 8:30, I hopped in the shower and we just finished eating dinner. Have you ever gotten so hungry that your stomach feels like it’s eating itself? That’s how I felt – I could feel my belly “chomp, chomp, chompin” in there, looking for something.
My crockpot meal turned out pretty good, but I think I would make it following the actual directions (no crockpot) next time. The flavor was great – I think the consistency would be better done on the stove. Maybe a weekend meal another time? I got this recipe from Spiceaholic, who sent me the Panch Puran spices used in the dish in my BSI winnings.
We had ours with some couscous mixed with canned/diced apricots (too offset the hot serranos in the beef dish!) and some roasted zucchini.
I LOVED the spices in the Panch Puran mix – it had such great flavor. I can’t wait to find other recipes to use this spice mix in. Thanks again Spice :)
My belly is still wanting something, so I may have a glass of cold chocolate milk before bed.
I hope you’ve had a great humpday!!! Here’s hoping tomorrow is a little more normal :)
Oh yeah! I did my 15MMC! Today I:
- used the bathroom downstairs instead of the one around the corner (that means a couple extra times of taking the stairs)
- side leg lifts while washing/drying my hands in said bathroom
- “counter dogs” a la Polly’s kitchen yoga video
- calf lifts at the vending machine – I got Nick some Reese cups :)
