Good morning my friends!
I’m proud of myself – I dragged myself out of bed for a 6 a.m. yoga class today. Getting up early reaaaaally sucks, but once I’m up and out it’s always SO worth it. The hard part is just reminding yourself of that when you’re still in bed. After vacation last week, I’ve been working hard on getting back into my workout routine – so far I’m 3 for 3 this week with early a.m. workouts! Yay.
I was originally planning to hit CrossFit this morning but I’m a big fan of intuitive exercising as well as intuitive eating, and I was feeling like I needed something more restorative today. Yoga it was! I signed up online last night so I had less opportunity to bail, and hit up my standard fave, Edge Yoga, for the class. I hadn’t had the instructor that was teaching this morning before – it’s always fun to mix it up, but I definitely still like Mark and Rebecca’s classes best.
I had an early AnneTheRD client today so I raced home, had some Perfect Microwave Banana Oatmeal (I threw an egg into the mix for extra protein – just follow the same recipe but whisk in an egg before microwaving) topped with berries and walnuts (added after the photo), and was on my way. Also, coffee, obviously.
On the dinner front this week, last night I threw together one of my favorite random easy dinners. All you do is toss some chicken and tomato sauce in a pan, add any veggies you have around, and put a lid on. Simmer on medium high until the chicken is cooked through!
For this week’s variation, I used boneless/skinless chicken thighs, and on the veggie front tossed in some zucchini, red pepper, and cherry tomatoes. I served it with some crusty bread on the side and it ended up being really good! Easy and tasty FTW. Matt and I both enjoyed it. It also would have been good over pasta or rice!
For dessert, watermelon! We brought home a HUGE watermelon from the beach and I spent some time yesterday cutting the whole thing up. It’s so good! Love summer watermelon.
And now, back to work! Lots of meetings and calls today. I hope you all have a wonderful day!
