whew, i was exhausted last night. sorry i didn’t get to post my bed was calling my name 🙂 lets see, where did i leave off?
Group power class during my lunch break! I am feeling it this morning. I”m so happy I finally have some strength training scheduled into my workouts. Thats the area I have always skimped on, and its so good for you. Right now i take the group power monday and wednesdays and could probably throw in another strength workout during the week, but right now i’m going to keep it going 2 days a week strong. Lunch was a little random, I had some crackers and sabra hummus then had an almond butter and black cherry preserves sandwich on my last two slices of ezekiel. It’s offical. I definitely am loving almond butter more than my peanut butter. It has really grown on me, and I crave it now! I would have never even tried it had it not been for all of you and your suggestions, so thank you!!
I had my yoga class last night, and on the way over grabbed a banana to get me through to 8pm. amazing class as usual. got to do some half moons and reverse half moons, reallly makes the glutes sore!! my favorite pose so far is tree pose, it makes me feel like such a yogi 🙂
When I got back from yoga I came home and made some tofu a la Gliding Calm! I made it a little differently though. When I was in yoga, i left some books on the tofu to press the moisture out. When I got back I sprayed some olive oil into a skillet and cooked the tofu on there. I mixed up my marinade, which was a little bit of everything. no measurements, just thrown in together. Soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, little swig of agave, oyster sauce (AMAZING, this is the sauce they put on any eel rolls at sushi restaurants) and some sriracha hot sauce(also amazing) then a couple shakes of red pepper flakes. I mixed it all together and then when the tofu was nice and golden I took the skillet off the heat, and threw the marinade into the pan. It thickened up really nicely and glazed and coated each piece of tofu perfectly. I have tried baking it and everytime I always end up burning it so I wanted to see how it worked out on the skillet. perfect 🙂 I ate it with some of the leftover veggies from the night before and also a piece of chinese eggplant. Dessert for the night was a few mini pieces of raspberry dark chocolate from Miss Lora!
As soon as dinner was over I hopped into bed to read more of my book. I AM SO CLOSE TO FINISHING 🙂 i have fallen in love with this book so much and can’t wait to see how it ends. My next book in line if Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson, and it looks so good. I have heard nothing but great things about it, and the lovely Vani from FitforFree is sending me her copy to read! hopefully knowing that i’m borrowing it from someone else will help me finish it that much quicker 🙂 im so excited. thanks Vani!
This morning I had a ww cinnamon raisin english muffin with some almond butter and a bowl of fresh strawberries, blueberries, and half a banana. sweet and simple.
Hope your Tuesday is going well 🙂 Big congrats to Meghann for putting together the awesome bake sale. she raised over $1100!! amazing, yay bakers!
