It is 8:30 A.M on my Spring Break (PS work at a charter school and you get 2 spring breaks….my second one is the week before BOSTON, perfect) and I have already…..
Taught a spin class,
Ran an 8 mile recover run @ 8:00 pace,
Stretch, foam rolled,
Ate breakfast and
SHOWERED and WASHED MY HAIR (feel free to clap for this one, your co-workers/family will only think you are semi-crazy).
Considering yesterday I didn’t even get out of bed until 10:30, I am feeling pretty productive.
Let’s be honest……as soon as I push publish I am crawling right back into bed with my laptop and amazing stalker abilities to enjoy YOUR blogs!!!!
I don’t know what it is but I LOVE mexican food. Between the tortilla, spiciness and the fact that Billy loves it too, we eat Mexican food a lot.
For din din I made some fajitas.
First, you have to try these tortillas. You buy them at Costco next to the cheese, they are just raw (still dough) tortillas. You cook them yourselves in a pan on the stove top (about 2 minutes per tortilla) and they taste SO FRESH. Try them. (They are TortillaLand brand).
I don’t even know what is going on with my hair but rest assured that it is now washed and air-drying. I will not expose any more people to the rats nest that was going on up in there. In the shower I found 4 bobbi pins that I did not know were in there.
I cooked some chicken in a pan with taco seasoning and in another pan green peppers, red peppers and onions. Don’t overcook the veggies, you want them to still be a little crispy ya know?!
Throw the goodies into your fresh tortillas with some cheese, avocado, sour cream and salsa and you’ve got a meal that is better than a restaurant meal. When I worked at a Mexican restaurant they charged $16.95 for their fajitas and they weren’t even half as good as these ones. We made ours for about $6 for two people (that is a savings of 13.95 per person)!
Even though I was stuffed the sugar beast showed its ugly face and forced me to have rocky road ice cream with chocolate chips.
Here is the dealio. I HAVE to have something sweet after dinner, I feel like something is wrong with me.
For my first marathon I cut out sweets to help my performance and somehow I trained my body to live without desserts for 4 months. For my birthday we even had a fruit salad to replace my cake. I know…..who was I?
I LOVED not feeling that I NEEDED to have something (the best part for me by quitting caffeine is the fact that I don’t feel like I have to have it).
Here is my question……..
Do YOU feel like you NEED something sweet after you eat lunch or dinner? Do you cave in like me?
-Lunch isn’t as bad as dinner but after dinner my mind can only think of one thing C.A.N.D.Y.
If you don’t feel like you need dessert after dinner have you always been that way? How did you train your body to not crave it?
-I was so focused on my training last year that I did whatever it took to make sure I was fueling my body with the best foods possible. Slowly the sugar crept back in and I feel like it now has a hold over me:)
Let’s get it out in the open…..How often do you wash your hair? Be honest.
-Twice maybe 3 times if I have a hot date:) There have been a few weeks in my history that it just happened once, wow that felt good to get off of my chest. Just like weening off of sugar I think you can train your hair to not produce as much oils and therefore not have to wash it as much:)
