Good morning everyone! I’m getting back on my workout routine. I went to Group Power class this morning and I almost died. Everything is an increased weight factor and it was hard. But I made it through.
I wanted to stay in bed but I got up to go. Sometimes you just have to make yourself get up and do it. I was definitely feeling this way this morning. I hate these ecards but it was the best thing to use this morning.
Yesterday was a nice day because I actually had time to do stuff. We did our grocery shopping and made all the food for the week very quickly. Maybe because it’s going to be short week for us.
I made chili because I desperately want it to get cooler. By making this pot of chili, I hope the weather drastically changes so I don’t feel bad about eating chili when it’s 87 degrees with 100% humidity outside. I will post the chili recipe soon, I promise!
So here’s what is cooking this week at our house:
Breakfast: No surprise. Egg white muffins and overnight oats.
Lunch: Chicken sausage chili with wild rice and OKRA!
Dinner: Chicken and rice.
Snacks: hummus, greek yogurt, celery, luna bars and fruit
Willie made this chicken and rice dish that smelled amazing. I really wanted to eat it last night and I could have but we had left over chili. It smelled so great! He really knows how to develop some flavors. Hopefully, he’ll tell you all about it soon. If he doesn’t, I’m going to post about it.
I think I’m going to give up on Larabars for a few weeks. They are delicious and good but for me, they aren’t filling. It doesn’t stick with me and sometimes a girl just needs a snack that is going to stay with her for awhile. Now, I’m in search of new snack ideas.
This week we’re headed to St. Louis so it’s a short week! I am very excited for the next few weeks of my life. It’s going to be filled with some amazing moments!
What’s cooking for you this week?
