This past weekend, I was able to start working out again after not working out for a week and a half due to a cold. Not working out for over a week had my stress out of control. It is amazing what a difference a good workout makes. On Thursday, I did a 30 minute pilates class and my 1 hour bootcamp class. On Friday, I did not have a muscle that did not hurt.
Saturday morning at 8am I went to bootcamp. We did lots of abs, which was torture because my abs were still wore from my 2 workouts on Thursday. After bootcamp, I went to a Holy Yoga class. It was awesome! I had not been to a Holy Yoga class in awhile. I love the experience of physical surrender while praising and worshipping. It was a cold rainy day on Saturday, so I stopped at Panera on my way home from yoga and got soup. I came home and took a 4 hour nap on the couch. That night I went to dinner with my sister-in-law, Emily. We had Greek food at Ziziki's for dinner, and went across the parking lot to Breadwinners for pumpkin cheesecake for dessert.
Sunday morning I went to hot yoga before church. I love letting all the tension and stress go before going to church. Right now at church Dr. Jeffress is doing a series on Revelation. After church, I pretty much worked on lesson plans and did laundry.
My Dinners this WeekToday, I planned what I am going to eat this week and went grocery shopping. I am planning on cooking the following items this week. When I cook, I usually cook 2-3 meals at once so I only have to cook a couple times a week. We just reheat stuff throughout the week.
Turkey Sloppy Joes
We had this tonight with carrots and celery. I got the recipe from this week's Six Sister's Weekly Menu.
I just make chili in the crockpot with cooked ground turkey, 3 Alarm chili seasoning, 1 can tomato sauce, 1 can pinto beans, 1 can black beans, 1 can kidney beans, bell pepper and onion. I cook it on low for 2 hours.
Chicken and Spinach Lemon PastaEmily gave me this recipe and said it was good. It is from Rachel Schultsz's blog. I probably will use a different pasta than Angelhair though because I have a bunch of pasta to use up.
Breakfast TacosI have been making frittata a lot lately, so I am going to change it up this week and make breakfast tacos with eggs, turkey sausage, and cheese. I recently discovered Jimmy Dean's Turkey Sausage crumbles. They are fully cooked and already crumbled. You just sprinkle them in whatever you are making. It is so easy!
LunchesI really love packing Bento lunches for myself. It helps me eat more balanced having it all in one box. I am a slow eater, so I seem to actually eat more if it is all in one container versus several. I probably will take a breakfast taco in my lunch one day and some leftover pasta another day.
For tomorrow I packed a homemade lunchable with turkey, salami, cheddar, crackers, carrots, celery, and an orange.
