Not What You Were Expecting

First, if you follow me on Twitter and saw my declaration today that I was going to post my Marine Corps Marathon training plan tonight then you’re in for some disappointment. I am very tired and we got home late from our fundraiser happy hour tonight. I want to put time and thought into that post so I’m going to wait until tomorrow night. Please forgive?

Second, a quick workout overview. I taught BodyPump Monday morning and then that evening Brandon agreed to go to yoga with me. I compromised and went to a vinyasa basics class with him so he would feel comfortable (he does practice, just not often). It was a very basic class (even too much so for Brandon) but I still got something out of it. It was a nice gentle stretch that left me feeling open and relaxed. I was back at the yoga studio at 6 a.m. this morning for an ashtanga class. This was my first time practicing ashtanga and I really want to tell you about it but I’ve been heavy on the yoga writing lately so I might share my thoughts on it after I try a few more classes.

Third, given my tired state and how behind I am on eats, I’m giving you guys a photo-heavy overview of the last few days.

Here we go…

Lunch at Mema’s Sunday before heading back to Charlotte. Half of a tomato sandwich on whole wheat, chicken salad and cheese with crackers, cabbage and sweet tea.

Brandon went for a run Sunday evening when we arrived home and got caught in a sudden (like really out of nowhere) downpour!

Dinner Sunday night. Roasted veggies and tempeh topped with sundried tomatoes and parmesan. More cabbage on the side (leftover from Mema’s).

Overnight oats for breakfast Monday morning. I’ve received questions recently on how I make these so I will be doing a recipe post on them later this week.

Lunch Monday was leftover Roasted Veggies and Tempeh on an Arnold Sandwich Thin and topped with feta. Heated under the broiler. I highly recommend creating vegetarian sandwiches out of leftover veggies. Yum.

I had a slice of pound cake leftover from Mema’s after lunch Monday.

Dinner Monday night was Buffalo Shrimp Tacos with Blue Cheese Cole Slaw. Corn and black bean quinoa on the side.

Lunch today was leftover quinoa with black beans and corn topped with Greek yogurt, hot sauce and diced avocado.

And the grand finale…a waffle for dinner. I didn’t eat at the event tonight because I was too busy talking. I’ve been craving waffles since I got up at 5 a.m. today. I topped mine with a little bit of almond butter, plain Greek yogurt and maple syrup.

    YUM – such delicious eats!
    Did you make that chicken salad with mayo?

      Gabriela – I didn’t make the chicken salad, my grandmother did…but I’m 100% sure that she used mayo. And 100% sure it wasn’t low fat!!! 😉

    You’re forgiven for not posting your marathon training plan 😉 I heart waffles for dinner sometimes!

    Do you have the recipe for buffalo shrimp tacos? I’d love to make those!

      I basically sauteed the shrimp with buffalo sauce and then made tacos with avocados and blue cheese cole slaw. It was super simple. For the cole slaw I just mixed together shredded cabbage, light mayo, fat free greek yogurt, shredded carrots, a squeeze of lemon juice, blue cheese, salt and pepper. I just kind of tasted it as I went.
