Today was another lazy day. What can I say, after finishing my program I really can’t get myself to do anything productive. There are plenty of things that needed to be done; however, I just can’t. I need to get over this mind block, write a to-do list, and get things done!
Before talking about today’s eats I should mention my yummy dinner from last night. It was fabulous. I had Deconstructed Healthy Spanakopita, it was aaaamazing! RhodeyGirl is a genius for coming up with this idea. I’m drooling just thinking about it. I can’t wait to have it again.
One thing that I am working on and is definitely on track is my vegetable intake. Today was another great day with a yummy lunch. I ended up making those yucca fries and they were sooo delicious! I dipped them in bbq sauce and was in heaven.
Basically, I chopped up the yucca root, which was very very difficult to chop. Next time I might boil the yucca before I chop it. I put the ‘fries’ on the pan and added some olive oil, salt, pepper, Cajun seasoning, and paprika. I left them in the oven for about half and hour and they were done. I will definitely be making them again.
I couldn’t really pinpoint what I was craving for lunch today so I had a bunch of things. I had sauteed some zucchini and mushrooms, added some carrots, and some grapes. I ended up making a little tasting plate of everything that I wanted in the moment. The only thing missing was some hummus – that would have made this lunch perfect.
For dinner tonight we had some rice and beans. The rice were white (ate about 3/4 of a cup) as they were not enough brown rice. The beans were great. Along with that I had some yogurt and a salad.
After dinner I set out for a run. I ended up covering about 2 miles before I got home. It was a great run. I’m seriously considering signing up for a race and training for it. I’m thinking small first, probably a 5k (3.1 miles) just to see if I like it or not. I enjoy running though. It is a great stress reliever along with a great time to just contemplate a lot of things. I haven’t tried to run farther than 3 miles and I can’t wait until I do.
Now before I leave, I leave you with this quote.
“You start out life with a clean slate. Then you begin to make your mark. You face decisions, make choices. You keep moving forward. But sooner or later there comes a time when you look back over where you have been … and wonder who you really are.” – The Wonder Years
Does the past really depict who we really are?
