All Ears

Posted on January 10, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Well it happened last night. I had a post-New Years fitness slump. It takes two weeks to make a new habit? I need to make sure I stay on point this week after having such a great week with exercise and diet last week. Last night I was just exhausted. I didn’t want to go to bar. I didn’t want to do any workout of any sorts. I was just blah. And sometimes I know when I’m just being lazy and I still push myself and get in a little workout and I feel better but last night I just knew that I needed to go home. Sometimes you just have to listen to your body and I’m glad I did because I feel so much better today.

I did make a delicious dinner last night from the Flexitarian Diet book – cooked orzo, roasted red peppers and corn covered in a lime/cilantro/garlic dressing. It was SO delicious! It gave me the comfort and warmth of a decadent pasta dish but was veggie filled and light. I also topped it with a little bit of feta cheese for an extra kick.

My dinner really looks massive in this photo.

I rounded out the evening with some laundry, food prep for the rest of the week and the last four episodes of the first season of Shameless. Yup, I ordered Showtime yesterday online. Of course when I got home, it wasn’t working. So after two sessions on hold (20 minutes then the call was dropped and then an additional 18 minutes), I connected with Ebony who helped me out. I even told her that I was hooked on a show after the free preview over the weekend and she paused and then said, “You mean Shameless?” I burst out laughing and told her it was the greatest show. We even chatted about a few other Showtime shows for the next few minutes while she helped me. Gotta love some good customer service!

Happy Tuesday!
