Das Boot

Yesterday morning I woke up at 6am and decided to head out for a run… I completed 4 miles in 35 minutes and came home and did the 10 pound slimdown yoga video. If I don’t get my workout done in the morning its likely it wont happen!

After a quick shower I whipped up some protein oatmeal. Because everyone likes hot oatmeal after a sweaty workout in 100 degree weather, right?

In the bowl: 1 packet of strawberries and cream oatmeal, 1/2 smashed banana, 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 scoop cake batter protein, 1T chia seeds and the other 1/2 of the banana sliced. SO GOOD.

Side Note: I’ve had this bowl for 10 years 🙂 Isn’t it perfect?

I cleaned the entire apartment yesterday (which is small) and it took me all day. I clearly have ADD. I took a break for lunch and grocery shopping!

Leftover sloppy joe, an ear of corn cut of the cob and romaine lettuce

I have to remember to only stick to my list when I go grocery shopping on the bike! I almost hit about 8 people on my way home because the weight of the bags steered me in every which way direction. Whoopsies!

I threw dinner in the crockpot and headed to a free fitness in the park class. The flyer said it would be a hip hop class…When I arrived the teacher explained that the hip hop teacher couldn’t make it but she would be happy to teach modern dance. I was cool with it…or so I thought. WORST WORKOUT EVER. I couldn’t even call it a workout. She had us prancing around, rolling around in the grass and crossing our legs like a butterfly. I left 25 minutes into the class and snapped a picture of the prancing while running away.

Not my thang.

On my walk back home I noticed there were pieces of paper all over my car.. I walk up and bam.

I’m booted. Seriously Hoboken? Ticket me and boot my car. Thanks for ruining my day!!!

Thank goodness dinner was ready when I got home. The crock pot saves me once again.

French Dip sandwiches on whole wheat buns and a side of roasted zucchini.

I get A LOT of searches on my blog for Pot Roast so I thought I’d share this recipe because it couldn’t be ANY easier.

Pot Roast in the Crock Pot

Ingredients 

  • 2 lb Chuck Roast (trim the fat (but not all of it)
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Lipton Onion Soup packet
Directions
  • Add all ingredients to slow cooker
  • Cook on low for 6-8 hours
  • Pull apart beef for sandwiches
I topped Adam’s with cheese and poured a little extra sauce on the sandwiches since I didn’t have enough to dip them.
I don’t like to toot my own horn but….beep beep. These were good!
Dessert was something that was definitely on my agenda tonight since I was SO angry about my car.
Graham cracker spread with natural peanut butter, dark chocolate chips and sugar free cool whip. Might be seeing this one quiiite often.
I have a long to do list to tackle today…and more brown bananas so I’m thinking of making banana cupcakes! Who wants some?

QUESTIONS: Has your car ever been booted? Have you ever taken a modern dance class?
