So my Monday was so busy that I’m having a Terrific in my Tuesday to make up for it!
My 3 day weekend was great and well needed. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get into any Crossfit classes. Waaahh! But that doesn’t mean I didn’t get a good workout(s) in because I did! I went to my second class at Title Boxing in Norwalk and it was even better than the first! I’m really loving it and plan to go to that same class this Saturday.
I spent lots of time with the “fam” in and outside of the gym. We had a celebration for my “sisters’” birthdays at Dolce Cubano in Stamford. It was fantastic! I kept it simple with a glass of Riesling. We ordered brussels sprouts and crispy artichokes for our apps. So tasty!
I ordered a grilled chicken salad (still fab) for my entree, because I had an icky experience with my lunch that day. The birthday girls both had salmon and my “mom” had a pulled pork dish. Because we’re such old ladies, we called it a night pretty early and headed home… but not before dessert! How else would you celebrate a birthday!?
We ordered a chocolate lava cake and tiramisu. Both were phenomenal!
The remainder of the weekend was low key and relaxing with another gym fam breakfast at Bedford Street diner. I ordered an egg white omelet with mushrooms, spinach and turkey sausage.
I cleared my plate and was damn happy!
Monday morning, I woke up and went to my regular gym class. I’m glad I did despite having the day off because I got so much accomplished! I hit up Target, my parents’, Home Goods, and Fairway. I came home, cleaned, cooked and prepped for the week. Seriously, by the time the evening rolled around I was feeling quite proud of myself.
New finds from Home Goods.
More balls! Packaged for delivery to my gym girls. I have a great recipe coming your way this week.
My newly organized shelving. My “Believe” and Buddha make this the perfect area for meditation. Thanks to the roomie, Sarah for suggesting it!
Kale chips! I have never been able to successfully bake the perfect chip…until today! As you know, I have a tendency to burn anything I put in the oven, but not this time. I sprayed the leaves well with olive oil and sprinkled them with sea salt and Bragg’s nutritional yeast seasoning. So good!
My first attempt at Chocolate Chili (with ground turkey) turned out delicious! You do not taste the cocoa and the flavor is quite rich. Next time I plan to add a bit more chili as I thought it needed a bit of a kick.
Back to the work grind I go!
What is Terrific in your Tuesday?
Are you a chili fan?
