Last night, Eric and I were on a roll in the kitchen! I started making dinner while he went to the grocery store, and after he got home, we continued on our mission of having lots of healthy and delicious foodstuffs for the week.
Eric juiced while I got the pasta in the oven (I used regular noodles instead of lasagna) and then made roasted bell peppers and whipped feta. The final result of our efforts was a well-stocked fridge, a delicious dinner, and an amazing breakfast this morning: toasted French bread spread with the whipped feta and topped with the roasted vegetables.
Also, since I was looking at a lot of these recipes on my phone as I was working on them, my phone now smells very strongly of roasted garlic. I can’t decide whether or not I have a problem with this.
Here’s our full menu for the week! (It’s a bit shorter than usual since I’ll be in Austin this weekend.)
Pre-made hard-boiled eggs (I’ve been having major issues making decent hard-boiled eggs lately; peeling them is taking out half the egg with it. This week, I said “fuck it” and went with the perfectly-prepared ones from the grocery store.)
Slow cooker meatballs
Grilled steak + squashed potatoes
I think I did two longer yoga sessions plus some shorter ones for my hip and heart challenge, but I forgot to record any workouts on my calendar last week so I’m not 100 percent sure…there may have been an additional workout, but I think it was just the two. I didn’t do any formal workouts over the weekend but I ran all over town on Saturday and ran around the kitchen/house last night, so I feel pretty good about all that. This week, I’m taking a yoga class at a studio (finally!) and I am aiming to get in two additional workouts before I head to Austin for the weekend.
I’m definitely feeling motivated and healthy after last night’s cooking spree. In between the cooking, I also managed to do laundry and fold it and put it away. (!!!!) I also Swiffered the first floor before I went to bed. Yesterday was such a long day (and Saturday was pretty busy too) and I don’t really feel prepared for my trip this weekend yet, but feeling like I have my shit together in a few key areas is definitely helping! There’s just something about having a drawer full of folded, matching socks that makes me feel like I got this.
How was your weekend? Anything good on the menu or workout schedule for this week?
