Now that I’m working from home, I have more time for cooking. Enter: spaghetti squash….
Before I started cooking, I never thought certain pairings could work. Some discoveries I’ve made:…
Yesterday evening, I went to the gym and had an awesome workout. It blew my morning work outs out of the water and then some. Perhaps I’m more fit for an evening workout (pun intended!). I did an awesome cardio workout that helped keep me from getting bored- I did 10 minutes on the bike, 10 minutes on the elliptical, and then 10 minutes on the tredmill all at a fast pace. I was sweating up a storm after that combo. From there, I hit the weights and did an upper body workout. You can check out my workouts page for my weight routine. It was great to fit in such a killer workout but it may be just too soon to tell if I’m meant to do evening workouts instead of morning.
After finishing up at the gym, I headed home to shower and make dinner. I didn’t actually start my dinner until 8:00pm, which is definitely a little late for my preference. Even though I ate dinner late, it didn’t stop me from having my left over frozen yogurt for dessert. 😉
I heated up my spaghetti squash again for dinner and it was really good. I added avocado, a bit of tomato sauce, cheddar and goat cheese, and some olive oil.
I wanted some more vegetables so I added artichoke hearts on the side. I used a can of pickled artichokes that I picked up from my parents’ pantry a little while ago. 🙂
My meal was fairly small which I may or may not have planned in order to save room for dessert. 😉
I would definitely say this meal was a success. Oh, and I added a few more food items to my nutrition page today too like these little delicious treats:
This morning, I decided to get up and have a nice breakfast before “hitting the gym.” I use quotes because I didn’t have much time and was a bit tired from my evening workout that I only did about 10 minutes on the elliptical. Maybe I’ll have time to fit something in this evening. Or maybe not since it’s Thanksgiving Eve! 🙂 (I’m using a lot of smileys today- I started listening to Christmas music yesterday so blame the holiday season.)
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Enjoy your meal, don’t feel too guilty, and just hit the gym the next day (or week!) 🙂
