It's been a little bit hectic this weekend so I decided to just do one big post! Saturday morning I got up and made apple pie oatmeal. I chopped an apple and cooked it on the stove with some water, lemon juice, cinammon, pumpkin pie spice, and a packette of Sun Crystals. Once it was soft I added additional water and oats to cook. I topped the oats with a bit of Trader Joe's crunchy almond butter. Yum! This was good oatmeal! After breakfast it was time to start getting ready for my nephew's 3rd birthday party. He has a little ride on John Deere tractor that he absolutely loves to drive so the party was tractor themed!
This morning for breakfast I tried to make whole wheat buttermilk biscuits. They tasted really good but they didn't rise. I later noticed that my baking soda was expired so that could be the reason! Anyhow they were still edible...just flat! I served them with two fried eggs. After breakfast I helped my daughter with a TON of math homework. Bluck! Then I hit the gym for 45 minutes of rolling hills on the elliptical. I did a quick strength training workout before bed last night so today was all cardio. After the gym I made a cheeseburger in pita (see Friday's dinner) and took a bit of a nap! Sunday afternoon naps are what I live for!
After my nap I showered and got ready to go to dinner. My husband has been wanting to hit the Mexican restaurant all weekend! We met our friends Mike and John and had a pretty good feast! I had chicken fajitas with mushrooms, green peppers, and tomato. No onion for me! Served with rice, beans, lettuce, and guacomole. So good. Plus I have leftovers for tomorrow! I don't feel guilty when I go out to eat. I feel like I eat healthy at least 80-90% of the time so a splurge once in awhile is fine!
Now for the recap of my first 11 days of yoga! Going well. I'm glad I accepted the challenge. I wish I had more yoga options but even with my Denise Austin and You Tube videos I'm feeling a benefit. I especially like to do relaxation yoga before bed. It's helping me get to sleep earlier! I still haven't learned to like a sun salutation but there are still 20 days to go...maybe I'll get there! lol!
