We had a good start to our day and to our New Year’s goals: Joe and I read the first two chapters from Proverbs and prayed together. There are 31 chapters in Proverbs and 31 days in January. I got the idea from Polly!
I then made us a pot of oatmeal. Mine had banana, chia seeds, a spoonful of cottage cheese, and a spoonful of peanut butter. Joe’s had banana, peanut butter, and Breyers vanilla ice cream. 🙂 Even though I had a lot less oatmeal, he finished his off way before me!
Despite eating my weight in cheese yesterday, I had a great workout at the gym. I think I’m on a good start to my “getting ripped” goal 😉 I ran 4 miles, then used some strength machines to work on back, triceps, deltoids, and leg extension for quads. I’ve gotten on a bit of a running kick again (I’m on again, off again since I always hurt my shins or knees, or get bored). I’m trying to take it nice and slow, plus I think the treadmill is easier on my legs than the pavement. We’ll see!
When I came home I knew I wanted a salad and to make Mama Pea’s pumpkin roasted chickpeas. They were yummy, even though I think I overcooked them. Oops.
I made a big salad to share some with Joe/save some for tomorrow. There was organic spinach and organic spring mix (only $1.99 a clamshell at Caputos!), organic carrots and cauliflower (Caputo’s-so cheap again), broccoli, green pepper, and Trader Joe’s grass fed white cheddar. Topped mine with chickpeas, a TJ’s pickle and Tuscan Italian dressing.
Then for “dessert” I had half a grapefruit with some NuNaturals Stevia sprinkled on.
Yeah, wish I wanted to eat like this everyday! Maybe I should blog more healthy and yummy meals and snacks to help me stay motivated to reach my goals, and give some ideas to other people? I don’t know, this was never really that kind of a blog…anyone’s thoughts?
