I really can’t believe that it’s already Thursday and I’m not quite sure where the week has gone. It started out “slow” with delayed openings and I think it got me in the mindset that I would have a very productive week. But over the past few days things have just gotten away from me as I’ve been busier than I expected. While my mind has been running non-stop, I really don’t even know exactly what I have been thinking about. So when I sat down to write this post, I had no idea what to say. Luckily, looking back on my phone sparked my memory a bit for some things that have been happening lately.
Like making another trip to Whole Foods and once again remembering how amazing it is there. I got more paleo-approved bacon, freshly ground almond butter, and a few different LARA bars to try. We order them on amazon but don’t like to order a whole pack of something if we aren’t sure that we like it. Whole Foods had a bin of loose bars for $1 each so I picked a few up to try.
How much better do roasted potatoes come out on parchment paper than foil? I spent way too long ripping holes in the foil as I tried to peel the potatoes off the tray and thus losing the nice crispy part of the potatoes. They don’t stick to the parchment paper at all! Same goes for butternut squash.
Is this not one of the grossest looking meals you have ever seen? This is what I call “put all random leftovers from the fridge into a container and bring it for lunch”. I had made chicken thighs with carrots, onion, cauliflower, and purple potatoes in the crock pot for dinner the night before. So the purple potatoes basically turn everything purple- and when I brought it for lunch I added some roasted sweet potatoes, zucchini and broccoli that I had made over the weekend. This is why I hide at my desk while I eat lunch.
I took the new Body Pump release on Wednesday morning, and it was a tough one. I really felt the back track and all the squats. I have a feeling I will be even more sore in a couple days since that’s usually what happens. The class was actually really full although the room is empty in the picture because I got there early to run before class…and to set up my stuff in a good spot of course.
I got a new
torture device toy!! I haven’t had much time to try it out because the past few days have been a little crazy, but I can tell it is gonna be intense (in the best way possible).
Thanks Amanda for encouraging me to take a few minutes to clear my mind a bit! Be sure to head over to her blog and see what everyone else is thinking about.
What’s been going on with you this week?
Have you eaten any good-tasting but gross-looking foods lately?
Any other Body Pumpers out there? Have you tried release 92?
