Clouds & Cucumbers

Hi Readers!

I’m so glad so many of you have been to a Mongolian restaurant before, it is such delicious food! When we were walking out to the car we saw a huge wall cloud:

Check that thing out! A big storm was headed right for us:

I sent them into our local news station, but I forgot to watch the news, so I don’t know if they included out photo (they usually show pics taken by residents). It ended up storming hard for most of the evening, the sky turned yellow/green for a while, it was crazy!

I stayed up way too late last night, so drinking a GM this morning was just what I needed:

Nothing special, same as every other day: almond milk, spinach, 1/2 banana, whey protein, chia seeds, peanut butter

What is your favorite smoothie?

Lunch is almost the same as yesterday too! I know I eat basically the same thing every day, but this is just getting old!

Romaine w/chicken breast, blueberries and almonds, with an Ezekial tortilla and carrots.

J brought these beauties home yesterday:

Here they are with a Larabar so you can see how thick they are!

So, I’m thinking we need to include a cucumber in tonight’s dinner. How do you like to eat cucumbers? Do you have a favorite recipe?

Plans for tonight:

1. Grocery shop
2. Laundry (ugh)
3. Clean kitchen (ugh)
4. Dinner: chicken fajitas
5. Bake blueberry muffins (recipe will be posted later tonight!)
6. Top Chef!

Question of the day: Do you plan your night ahead of time or do you like to go with the flow? I “need” to plan, I love to make to-do lists and plan ahead.

Have a great day!

Holly

Taco Friday

Hi Readers! I hope you’re having a great Friday!

I am really sore from my TurboFire Sculpt dvd that I did yesterday. It was only 30 minutes long and used a resistance band (which usually isn’t as effective for me versus hand weights), but holy moly my biceps and triceps are burning today. I love it!

Breakfast this morning was the usual GM:

Snack was mixed nuts and some strawberries, and here’s lunch:

Oh.my.gosh. These are the best steak tacos I have ever eaten. I have no idea where they come from. A co-worker of mine asked me a few weeks ago if I wanted tacos for lunch, I said yes, and then he left. He didn’t ask what kind I wanted, how many, nothing.

Fifteen minutes later, he emerges with a little bag for me and said the total was $3. I paid him and opened the bag and found the 2 most wonderful tacos ever. They come with lime wedges, greens (not sure what this is?), onions and sauce.

I have no idea about calorie content, fiber, fat, anything. I have no idea what the sauce is. I asked my co-worker and all I got back was a shrug. I asked a different co-worker (who also gets these tacos) and he told me that they are made by some woman who sells them from her house. You have to call and place an order and then go pick them up.

So I don’t know where these tacos are from, who made them or where to get them. All I know is that they are delicious and they are my way of celebrating Cookie Friday.

Tonight is date night so J and I are going to see Inception at the “really really nice movie theater” – I’ll take some pics so you can see what I mean. I need to get a TurboFire workout in after work and before we take off for dinner. Busy night!

Question of the Day: Do you celebrate Cookie Friday (or in a different form like Taco Friday)? Is there one meal/snack you really look forward to all day? I really look forward to my morning smoothie because I’m hungry in the morning!
