Oh, hey there!
I hope everyone had a great Monday! Mine was fairly uneventful. I had plans to hit up a yoga class after work today,but I ended up taking a little siesta(oops!) and instead settled for a yoga today class. It was a quick 30 min flow, but it was just what I needed!
A couple random things from today:
Does your dog love sleeping in piles of laundry? Mine sure does! I take it as a compliment; he must enjoy my scent (or stench haha!).
Perhaps the most exciting things that happened today was getting locked out of my apartment in THESE pajama pants. My momma bought them for me years ago and they happen to be my favorite pair. They used to have a matching shirt (a little much), but I decided the pants were enough on their own. PJ HATES them. Every time I put them on he frowns and says something that I can’t post on this blog. I have been locked out of the apartment a few too many times, and I just couldn’t bear the thought of going to my doorman,tail between my legs, and ask for the key AGAIN. Instead, I practiced forearm stands in my hallway!
This recipe is actually a repeat for me. I have made it a couple of times, and PJ and I love it. You can have it on the table in literally 20 minutes. PJ hates quinoa, so I subbed in barley instead. I also included avocado, peppers, and scallions, and I added a little hot sauce to the barbecue dressing. The barbecue dressing is made simply with Chobani and barbecue sauce! So easy and delish
Is there anything you guys would like to see on the bloggy or any other burning questions you have for me?! Let me know and I’ll do my best to include it!
I’m a firm believer that there is no time like the present to make a change in your life, but for many people Monday is they day they like to start a new. Here is a quote that I think gives great perspective to how we view (or choose not to view) our eating habits.
“And dieting, I discovered, was another form of disordered eating, just as anorexia and bulimia similarly disrupt the natural order of eating. “Ordered” eating is the practice of eating when you are hungry and ceasing to eat when your brain sends the signal that your stomach is full. … All people who live their lives on a diet are suffering. If you can accept your natural body weight and not force it to beneath your body’s natural, healthy weight, then you can live your life free of dieting, of restriction, of feeling guilty every time you eat a slice of your kid’s birthday cake.”
