Dinner last night was really good. I marinated some portabella mushroom caps in some homemade veggie broth, minced garlic, and balsamic vinegar for about a half hour. The D threw them on the grill for me!
I served them up in a big collard leaf (instead of a burger bun) and topped with cabbage, red onion, sliced tomato, and sauerkraut. I was going to make a quinoa salad for a side dish, but was too lazy and just ate two of my shroom burger wraps instead.
I had absolutely no appetite today. I had very little sleep, and I find that I’m either starving the next day or completely disinterested in food. I was the latter.
I didn’t have anything for breakfast, but lunch was some reheated lentils and rice from dinner Friday night. I don’t think I blogged about it, but it was my usual. 2 cups lentils, 1 cup brown rice, 2 tbsp. of spice (I usually go with something Middle Eastern, and this was no change – I used a Baharat spice blend). Pop it in the rice cooker and that’s all she wrote.
I heated up a bowl and topped it with some shredded cabbage and hot sauce.
Late afternoon I had a plain baked potato with pepper. Boring, but I wasn’t in the mood for anything fancier.
For dinner, I ended up making a savory green smoothie. 4-5 Roma tomatoes, 1/4 yellow bell pepper, a chunk of red onion (I’d guess about 1-2 tbsp.), a celery stalk, a large carrot, and a few big handfuls of spinach. Into the Vitamix and then into my belly.
I knew when I woke up this morning that it’d be a rough day. I had about 2 hours of sleep and needed to focus. So….I went to a spinning class at the Y. I figured I needed to get my blood pumping to wake my #$% up, and it worked. I can’t get over how many people workout that early in the morning. Crazy.
Anyway, my bum is still sore from Saturday’s class with AZ, but I threw on some padded bike shorts and muscled through it.
I was up late working last night (until 1 am or so), and since my brain was spinning, I had no hope of actually falling asleep. As it happens, a very good friend of mine was also unable to sleep, so we chatted for a bit in the middle of the night, which was actually really nice. I finally dozed off sometime around 330. I’m surprisingly awake today, so that’s good at least!
It’s a typical Monday evening, though I’m home earlier than usual (as in 7pm instead of 8 pm!). We’re all starting to wind down and for me personally – I’m really looking forward to going to bed as soon as possible!
