Good Morning and Happy Tuesday AKA we made it through Monday 🙂
Thank you to everyone who posted and sent sweet thoughts my way yesterday. In reality I got some frustrating news that I let kind of take the life out of me through the morning and afternoon.
All of your sweet comments reminded me that I was going to be fine and just as you all assumed: a run with the boys was all I needed to turn the day around.
Zach and I were both ready the second I got home to take advantage of what sun and warmth we had left (it was so beautiful here yesterday. I wish I had taken pictures on the run but this was one of those runs where I just couldn’t stop).
Workout of the Day: 3.3 miles + Abs
Not my fastest 3.3 miles ever but it was my first run outdoors since being sick/in Europe AND we picked a very hilly route (I need hill training bad) so overall I was very happy with it.
Actually, I just say we blame Gus for being slow 😉
I ended the run feeling AWESOME, strong and relieved. . . just what I needed. Really, is there anything fresh air and salty sweat can’t fix? I wrapped up the work out with a quick Ab NTC app routine.
I have been talking about my quesadillas since Zach got home, so last night we decided to do another version of them! This time, all the ingredients were fresh and/or grilled. Including the quesadilla itself. YUM!
- 1 large chicken breast grilled by Zach
- 1/2 yellow pepper
- 1/2 orange pepper
- 1 can of green chilies
- 1/2 cup of chopped mushrooms
- mixed greens
- 1/3 cup of shredded cheese
All shared between the two quesadillas. Zach grilled the chicken while I prepped the goodies. Zach started the quesadillas while the chicken finished, and then chopped and added the chicken + top tortilla to flip. They were absolutely perfect enjoyed with a Magic Hat.
Don’t judge me . . . it was a tough Monday.
We watched a bit of TV before calling it early, once again. Anybody else out there watch The Bachelor last night? I don’t know I feel like the girls have VERY good points against JP. . . but it all seemed like they were TRYING to harp on him, which was a bit frustrating to watch. To be honest my favorite part was the beginning with Catherine and Sean. “Quick fireworks!” I died!
I took the opportunity to sleep in once again this morning (glorious) knowing that the hubby was taking care of the pup and making me oatmeal for breakfast. I’m spoiled :).
BUT I did sneak in a quick 15 minute NTC app routine, and have a yoga class planned for the PM. Perfect for me 🙂
And the menu tonight? Tuna and salads. . . YUM!
Question of the Morning: Do you use fresh air and salty sweat to get “unfrustrated?” What can it solve for you?
