Hey bloggertons! What has everyone been up to today – better have been fun!!
So after my farmer’s market fiesta this morning I ventured over to the gym to do a traditional elliptical interval workout — I rarely do this type of workout (I get bored easily, I like choreographed routines like kickboxing and the such) but I was craving it today!
Hill setting – level 11
- 10 minutes forward
- 5 minutes backward (this really works your arms?)
- 2 to 1 intervals (2 min all out, 1 min recooperation) for 9 minutes
- 6 minutes backward
I also hit up the ol’ abdominals on the exercise ball and did some trusty J.M. ab moves. It was an awesome workout, felt great! You know what I love about the elliptical, it also works your core – double time whoop whoop!
Then it was lunchtime – which consisted of a salad from Ukrops (local Richmond grocery store!)
Lentil Veggie Chimichangas (thanks to my homegirl Brittany at EatingBirdFood for hookin’ that one up – you rock!)
Pork chops fresh from the farmer’s market
Squash, Pear & Onion au gratin
Snobby Janes (shout out Erica at ItzysKitchen for that idea!)
Maple Acorn Squash
After shoppin’ it up w/ my eco-friendly reusable grocery bags (whoop whoop for these guys!), Lucy Dog and I went for a surprise visit to see “grandma and grandpa” — aka my parents! I brought them some muffins and mom was literally in the process of making some tabouli to bring over to me… we are SO mother & daughter 🙂 I’m hopin to get ahold of some-a that tomorrow! (I know you’re reading mom 😉 )
She also happened to have some of that whipped organic local honey I mentioned earlier – more to come on that later….. 😉
After our visit I decided to head over to Whole Foods and found a coupon booklet in the basket I picked up to use…. it must be their monthly flyer or something but there was a coupon for 75 cents off any two Larabars (priced at $1.29) so I ended up getting them for 92 cents each?!?!?!?! Guess who my “HOORAY!” goes to today?! 😉
When I got home from all this shopping I was starvin’ Marvin so I chowed down on somma this
Mom hooked it up w/ lettin me take home some of her whipped honey 😉 Thanks Mom – you are the best!
So now this is happening
While The Man watches some football and plays some video games – I’m going to go attempt making LENTIL VEGGIE CHIMICHANGAS!!!
Once again, mucho thanks to homegirl Brittany for this!! Check out her adventure in making these as well peeps 🙂
I’ll see all you bloggertons later tonight for a dinner recap!
