this morning i got the chance to walk it OUT again at the gym! you’ve seen the quote ‘you’re one workout away from a good mood,’ but baybaaaay, i was already in one and the early workout made my day that much better.
i did about an hours worth of treadmill incline intervals. i switched back and forth between these two settings:
4 mph @ incline level 4
2.5 mph @ incline level 15
sweaty, saturday FUN.
back at home, i had a gangload of zucchini (about 6 medium) i needed to spiralize so that’s exactly what i did before they went bad. i sauteed the zoodles in a large wok for about 5 minutes in 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat, then added them to a large bowl with about 3 large spoons of homemade guacamole from yesterday. i didn’t really have a sauce prepared and was being lazy. it worked though! i paired them with tilapia and a few fresh tomatoes for lunch. Sonny really enjoyed this!
seriously. these postpartum cravings… i try to fight them as best i can and it is pure torture some days. i am a bottomless pit and i’m not even working out like i used to yet, jeez. i either want chocolate, salty, crunchy chips, or crackers, so I turned to my old friend, popcorn.
3 cups of air popped popcorn is only 25 cals, 1g of fat, 22g carbs, 6g fiber, and 3g protein. soooo I made a big vat of homemade Salted Dark Chocolate Popcorn! I melted 2 tbsp of dark chocolate and drizzled it over the popcorn (that I cook on the stovetop with a lil coconut oil) and added a pinch of sea salt and a few mini chocolate chips. i suggest putting the entire bowl into the fridge so the drizzle can harden first, but i didn’t wanna wait nor did i mind the mess.
so, friday night ended differently that i expected! hubs came home and suggested sushi and i did not dispute him. i order the same thing at our fave spot every time with the following adjustments:
- salmon teriyaki bento box with the teriyaki sauce on the side
- steamed veggies instead of vegetable tempura
- 2 salads instead of the soup & salad my meals comes with as the sodium from the miso soup bloats me
- i customized my roll and asked for brown rice with fresh shrimp and avocado.
according to Sonny my roll always tastes too healthy. whatevs.
dinner… and a show.
Q: what special healthier requests do you make when ordering food at a restaurant?
