Thank you to everyone who recommended a bunch of podcasts on yesterday’s post! I’m looking forward to listening to all of them
and perpetuating my dependence on technology to keep me from feeling lonely.
I love that podcasts can make me laugh out loud. I like laughing. 😀
Since I started my internship at 3pm yesterday, I had a little bit of extra free time in the morning to make some more “fancy” food. Fancy = takes more time.
Breakfast was Frrrreeeench tooooast (said in my pitiful, wannabe-hardy French accent). I dipped Dave’s Killer Bread in a mixture of: 1 egg, a splash of 2% milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Then I plopped the battered bread into a skillet sizzling with butter.
Served with a pool of peanut butter and bananas sautéed in a little more butter. Plus the last of a plain yogurt container with more cinnamon, nutmeg, stevia (yeah, I used it) and the sweetest of mangoes.
For lunch, I had another English muffin sandwich with an egg, avocado, and goat cheese + salad + an unknown number of white cheddar Popcorners + a plum!
Around 11AM I whipped out the crockpot and almost 6 lbs of boneless pork ribs, compliments of Costco. After practically sawing off the excess fat (I left plenty on, but I took off the 2 inch strips and chunks o’ fat), I seasoned the ribs with Bobby’s rib rub and then threw them into the crockpot with some garlic and onion.
8 hours later…
You can see my first taste of the ribs on Snapchat.
For dinner I served the ribs on microwave-steamed sweet potatoes with kale sautéed in avocado oil, salt, pepper, a little maple syrup, and spicy brown mustard (<— do this!). Plus a dollop of Greek yogurt because the ribs were kinda spicyyy.
What a blesséd meal.
Since I haven’t shared my weekly moves and grooves in a couple weeks, I thought it was a good time to share again! Still keeping things pretty low impact/intensity and feeling great about it.
I’ve been working on gaining some flexibility and mobility back in some (all) of my tight joints with yoga and stretching. Physical therapy interning has me inspired to stay as mobile in my joints as possible!
- Friday: Rest
- Saturday: lower body barre
- Sunday: 8 min abs
- Monday: 60 min yoga
- Tuesday: gymnastics warmup + handstands + lower body exercises
- Wednesday: 3 mile walk
- Thursday: 8 min abs + 60 min yoga
Hip hip hooray for Friday!
So tell me:
What did you eat for dinner last night?
Do you consider yourself flexible?
