Thanks for hanging in there while I moped all over the blog yesterday. Writing that post + lights out at 9:30 pm left me feeling like a new woman Thursday morning.
I’m back today to share about two of my favorite things, exercise and food. Inspiration for this workout struck me in the middle of the day yesterday. I jotted it down on a post-it and tested it out last night. It’s a real doozy! I recommend doing the circuit 3 times through and if you only have a limited amount of time modifying as needed.
I’m going to be walking funny today thanks to the running/lunging combo. Let me know if you try it out!
The Best Weeknight Tip Ever:
By this time of the week (Thursday nights, that is) my grocery supply has dwindled and I start justifying the cost of going out to lunch on Friday. But deep down I know there is enough left to scavenge up something a lot more nutritious and healthy if I just put in the tiniest amount of effort. Enter, the one pot wonder meal!
So here’s the tip: whatever you make for dinner, double it and you’ve got lunch! Genius, right?
Last night I thawed a bag of Trader Joe’s kale, sweet potato, and quinoa pilaf while simultaneously nuking a potato in the microwave. Once the TJ’s mixture was heated through I cooked two eggs in the same pan and served them up to their respective plates. 15 minutes later I had a hot meal for dinner and the perfect lunch for today.
Question: How often do you buy versus bring your lunch to work?
