Rejuiceanation

Friday I treated myself to a lunch out in Hoboken. I usually wouldn’t do this. Especially because I’m currently unemployed, but I had a Living Social deal so it was kind of free?

The restaurant’s name isĀ Rejuiceanation. Their about us section on their website says “Rejuiceanation makes it a priority to promote nutrition and its vital role in helping people uphold healthy and active lifestyles.”

When I got to the restaurant I was overwhelmed by all of the choices on their build a salad menu… I had to be choosey though because everything was quite pricey. $1.75 for avocado? $1.75 for artichokes? $1.00 for asparagus? $2.25 for grilled chicken? $1.00 for sprouts? Add that to my $2.00 lettuce bed and we were looking at a $10 (HALF) salad.

The salad was small but good… It had a lot of avocado (not complaining) but I could’ve made the same thing for A LOT cheaper.

I also ordered one of their fresh squeezed juices. Red Velvet – Apple, Beets & Carrots

That was another $5. My total was around 16 or 17 dollars for the salad and juice. Whole Foods might even be cheaper than that!?

I’ll go there again, but only because I have enough left on my gift card for one more salad and juice. After that I don’t think I’ll be visiting there unless I’m feeling REALLY lazy. Which probably means in 2 weeks.

Adam got home early from work (weeeee) and we wanted to see Horrible Bosses so I made a quick Taco dinner.

Ground Chicken, Vegetarian Refried Beans, Romaine Lettuce, Salsa, Mexican Cheese, Greek Yogurt (used as Sour cream)

I made a taco salad with all the fixins and made us each half of a cheese quesadilla on a flat out.

We took public transportation to the movie (eh, i need to get used to this).

But the view ended up not being so bad.

Even if the people were a little creepy šŸ™‚

Horrible bosses in our opinion was hilarious. It’s definitely a crude type of comedy but the laughs were consistent and I’m always down for a night of giggling. We snacked on a small popcorn which made my belly sad butĀ there’sĀ something about movieĀ theaterĀ popcorn that tastes SO GOOD!

I think were heading out to explore NYC. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

QUESTIONS: Have you seen horrible bosses? What is your favorite type of movie? I like a good romantic comedy (typical girl)

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 šŸ™‚ 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

IngredientsĀ 

  • 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?
