I enjoyed a fabulous hip-opening flow on Wednesday to sooth my achy legs.  My groin was so tight.  It felt so good when I got down in half pigeon.

For dinner, I made mini turkey meatloaves.  They were chock full of veggies and had a spicy glaze on top.  I will definitely make these again.  They were in this month’s Self magazine and you can find the recipe here.   P1020773

Today’s breakfast was beyond.  Chocolate-peanut butter oat bran – In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup of oat bran
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1 Tablespoon chocolate/peanut butter chips mixed in

I also invented a new snack today.  I put a big dollop of plain Chobani in a dish and crumbled some PB-filled pretzels in along with a tiny dab of TJ’s superfruit spread.  Mixed it all together and voila!  It was awesome.

Dinner was out.  Hubbers and I tried a new restaurant.  We split a mixed green salad to start – my blackberry was NOT taking good pics for some reason.  The salad was good.  My wine was good.  My entree was vegetable risotto…should be a grand slam for me.  It sucked.  The rice wasn’t even risotto rice.  It looked like plain white rice in some weird oily reddish sauce.  It was full of huge slices of pepper and zucchini.  NOT what I had in mind.  Worst part was no one came over to see what the dealio was when I ate three bites of my meal and then wasn’t touching it.  When the waiter came to clear our plates he apologized and offered me a meal to take out.  I was done at that point and politely declined.  I felt badly sending the food back.  I’ve NEVER done this before, but I could not justify paying $17 for something I didn’t and wouldn’t eat.  So they removed it from the check and I came home and had this:


Ezekiel with cinnamon raisin swirl PB.  It hit the spot.  I just gave myself a mani/pedi and did a pretty fantastic job if I do say so myself.  Now it’s time to let these babies dry and hop into bed!
