Busy Lazy Evenings

Good morning!

Yesterday evening seemed very relaxing, but I managed to get a lot done.  The husband, the workout buddy/neighbor and I went on a 30 minute walk after work.  That was a good start to the evening.  I felt a little like I was dragging and I am hoping that is no indication of how I will feel during week 1 day 2 of C25K tonight.  I am actually looking forward to it.  I am also looking forward to lunch time yoga today!!  YAY!

My laziness was probably most reflected in the dinner I prepared. wasn't take out, so I will chalk that up as a win for productivity.

The salad was spring mix, mushrooms, cucumber, reduced fat feta and boiled egg white for protein.  I added tomatoes to the husband's salad because I am nice and he likes them.  I do not like raw tomatoes so much.  The star of the salad was a lemon vinaigrette dressing, which is super easy to make.

  • juice of one lemon
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp cumin seed
  • salt and cracked pepper to taste
Whisk all the above ingredients together and you have dressing for two large salads.  It is easy and really tasty.  The dressing adds one point + to the salad as does the reduced fat feta.  So my salad was a whopping 2 points +.

In addition to salad I also made us some roasted asparagus.  If you have not roasted asparagus, you really should.  Spread it in one layer on a cookie sheet, spray it with olive oil from your misto or use your olive oil cooking spray, sprinkle with garlic salt and put in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Delicious.  I record the asparagus at one point + because of the olive oil, I doubt there is a whole teaspoon on it, but better safe than sorry.

I also managed to get some laundry done, which was nice.  Trixie was a big help.

Okay, actually she was having a lazier evening than me, but she sure looked cute doing it.

Have you heard of The Naked Face Project?  Caitlin Boyle who writes Healthy Tipping Point, a blog I love, and another woman, the founder of Girls on the Run are doing no makeup, no shaving, no grooming for 60 days.  They are pretty much, brushing teeth, bathing/washing faces and that's it.  Check out the project and let me know what you think.  Tomorrow I will be blogging my thoughts about it.

Interesting Magazine Ad

I got to thinking about it more last night after I got in bed with my magazine after a nice shower that included leg shaving and using an exfoliating scrub on my face and was closely followed by my evening regime of eye and face cream.  These ladies have given up all these things (except the shower) for 60 days.  Check out the site and the reason why they are doing it and let me know what you think tomorrow.  I'll detail my thoughts then.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
