Do what ya gotta do...

Monday Recap:

8:00am:  Coffee with creamer

10:30am:  Breakfast- Celery with peanut butter
Not much motivation to eat celery every day...except for the decrease in the numbers on the scaleJ  Sometimes ya just gotta do what you gotta doJ

1:00pm:  Lunch-  Cherries & 2%
Never fear...this was my LAST 'full serving' of cherries from the bag I had in the fridge.  So until I make it to the grocery store again, this will probably be my last cherries & cheese lunch post for a bitJ

3:30pm:  Snack- Peach 
Which I got about 3 bites of its juicy deliciousness before Katie decided to commandeer it for herselfJ  Thanks KatieJ

5:00pm:  Dinner- Grilled Veggie salad
So I spent nearly the ENTIRE day trying to figure out what to make for dinner, not really in the mood for salad...but knew Mondays are always in NEED of saladJ  So instead of LETTUCE, I just focused on VEGGIES and went about making them delicious in the easiest way possible:  Havin em hit the GRILL!

Just slice, toss on the pan/grill and flip half way through.  Couldn't be easier! 

Once cooked, I gave everything a quick chop...(and a quick blurry photo)... 
  • 2 zucchini
  • 2 red peppers
  • 1 diced white onion
  • 3 ears of corn
  • diced prosciutto
  • diced cotija
  • 3 diced scallions

Tossed on top of some lettuce with a quick dressing of olive oil, honey, dijon mustard & white balsamic and you had a pure summer salad made with fresh veggies & the inevitably delicious kiss of grill char!

And there MAY have been a few more cubes of cheese on that salad before I got its pictureJ  That damn cotija is just too poppable!

Katie even had her own 'mini salad' that she loved.  My proudest moment was seeing her slam an entire red pepper slice in her mouthJ  Didn't think she was gonna like those, but she at least tried it. 

6:30-9:15pm:  Yoga
Yep, you read that rightJ  I decided to go for a back-to-back Beginners power & gentle class on a Monday night.  Which OF COURSE I plan to do this on the night I get into class and learn the air conditioner was BROKEN!  Sooooo...I got a really good sweat in BOTH classesJ   I actually think even more so in the GENTLE class.  Sometimes the slower you move in yoga, the tougher it is...so never think you're not getting a great (physical AND mental) workout in ANY yoga class.  There's ALWAYS something to learn in yoga.

So from a pure summer dinner to deciding on what gooey, cheesy casserole-type dish I want to make today, which is a pure gloomy and POURING rain day here in Jersey.  All I want to do is bake SOMETHING FALL-Y!  And by "fall-y", I meant filled with SPICE and covered in orange & black sprinkles...heheheheheheheJ 

Have a good Tuesday!
