I try to do the Meatless Monday thing. The key word is try since every week is a bit different, but in case you do it and need an easy salad for lunch or dinner you should try adding baked tofu to it. I’ve had this salad at least three times over the past week which was inspired by Coach Elizabeth and her tofu recipe creations.
I got the savory marinated tofu from Trader Joe’s, cut it in cubes and then baked it at 400 just until it got crispy. Then I piled it on my ginormous salad compiled of butter lettuce, organic broccoli, Trader Joe’s cilantro dressing, Scotty B’s bacon jalapeño hot sauce, crushed red pepper and Trader Joe’s smoke seasoning. Oh heck yes. I have never really been a tofu fan, but things have changed now. This salad has just knocked my socks off. Woot!
I’m into this new routine of running a little less, but adding more strength training. Yesterday I didn’t do any cardio, but I did this video I found from my man Bob Harper.
It was harder than I expected it to be and had to get lighter weights for the shoulder parts. It’s an hour long and I was impressed. I’m even a little sore today and that’s always a good thing, isn’t it?
It brought back memories though. Remember those days when I made those Team Bob videos with him?
It was so long ago. I hope he misses me. Ha ha.
The next workout I do is going to be this one since I’m in it. Ha ha.
I have a new awesome friend in my life and her named Katie. I met her on Instagram (@katiesfitscript) and adore her. She is super inspiring, has the most amazing abs ever, is an amazing athlete and knows everything and more about using counting macros to get to your goal weight.
Because of her I’m jumping on the macro counting train AND starting to focus on my abs which I’ve neglected since forever.
After my little strength session yesterday I did this workout that I came up with laying in bed the night before.
I only made it twice through the circuit since the boys got over trying to help me count to 50 pretty quickly and started finding a few too many things in the boxes of things we were donating.
Oh, I guess I did get a little cardio in because I took all those bags there to Goodwill. I got a good sweat on cleaning out the house and loading all those up.
Mondays could always use a little extra motivation so thought I’d share some of my favorites from over the weekend with you. It’s so nice to just slow down and focus on being a better person. I’ve always used being too busy as an excuse for everything, but finally things are changing and I’m learning so much.
The first one is from Katie.
This one is from Lysa TerKeurst. I’m currently doing one of her devotionals and it’s awesome.
Here are just a couple more.
Oh and random, but I got all creative yesterday and made each of the boys a special tooth holder for the tooth fairy.
Pretty cute huh? Empty Nuun containers covered with contact paper. Classy.
WE had one minor scare when we found the container open and had to search for the missing tooth, but we got it and we had a special visitor last night.
Have a wonderful week!
