Okay, so I’m in a rush right now to get a new post up since my last post just may be the worst post I’ve ever written. I’m tempted to delete it, but instead I’m keeping it as a reminder.
Note to self: If you don’t have anything good (or the time) to write, don’t write anything at all.
I’m blaming instagram.
I’ve got to make these afternoon “office hours” count.
Yesterday I pushed these heavy tots 5 hilly miles in the summer heat.
Today I taught boot camp in the morning (and my ladies rocked it). Then I got on the treadmill for a quick 5 miles. Check out my set up.
Featured flick of the day was the first part of Spanglish. Too bad I can barely see that little TV.
I really want a cool little stand for my laptop in front of the treadmill like the cool people have. Can I have someone make one of those? Hmmm…
After I wrote yesterday’s HUGE post, we had a little family morning.
We went to the park.
Then out to breakfast at a little local spot Champions.
I got an egg white veggie omelet.
I asked for some extra salsa and a jalapeño on the side and doctored it up a little like this.
We also took a family trip to Target afterwards, but there were no pictures. Target is not STUFT Daddy’s favorite place, so I didn’t dare bring out my camera.
Later in the day we had a very special home delivery from Honest Tea.
Pretty exciting stuff.
Okay so let’s talk spinach salads.
I showed this salad the other day.
I had the brilliant idea to add berries on spinach the other day. I thought it was an original idea, but I guess a lot of other people already do it. Ha. It was a new discovery for me that berries went so well on spinach.
I’m super picky about salad dressings and since I wrote this post and you all gave me ideas of how to use apple cider vinegar for salad dressings I decided to experiment.
Here’s what I put together:
Berry Hot Vinegar Dressing
2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons Scotty B’s Berries and Heat hot sauce
1 sweetener packet
I drizzled it on the spinach
and added a boatload of berries.
I think it would be really good with goat cheese and some nuts. I wanted to add sunflower seeds, but um…
yeah. They were a little outdated.
Today I made another new salad.
I can’t for the life of me remember who told me to do this, but for the dressing I combined mustard and apple cider vinegar. If it was you, I’m so sorry and I owe you a Flat Kitty. Tell me so I can give you credit for this.
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon stone ground mustard
I had to top it with this brewer’s yeast (because I need some serious help with my hair and all) and some crushed red pepper.
Then added some Costco rotisserie chicken.
This salad just might be my new thing.
It was good friends.
My second course for lunch was my new pumpkin protein cookie dough I’ve been consuming everyday
I topped it with a billion berries. No pictures of it today. Oops.
I promise the new recipe is coming soon too.
I do have this classy picture of yours truly with leftover berries in my teeth though.
Why yes, it was a Coke Zero kind of a day.
Okay “office hours” are over. I have to get in the shower. I’m still a sweaty mess from my workouts this morning (as if you can’t tell from the picture above). I even sat through a 2 hour training all sweaty and gross like that. There were some pretty lucky people sitting next to me.
