Listen to this song. I DO NOT do things like this, but I swear I got out of my chair just to dance around the room to it this morning! (NOTE: Skip to :52 where the song starts ) I feel like I have shied away from country music and the South in recent years, especially since moving to a “big city”, but by gosh I used to go to bonfires in the country in hay fields just like the one in the video all the time when I was in high school!!
PS. The lead singer looks just like my bachelor neighbor, who LOVES beer on Friday nights 😉
I definitely think my mood is better today. Who knows if it was the vitamin, the song or a psychological effect. I went to the gym mid-morning and had a great workout. I didn’t bike there today because there was a chance of rain, but I sure feel guilty for driving! I arrived just 15 minutes early for a cycle class and decided to go (luckily I had thought to pack my shoes). I warmed up on the ET while I waited for class to start, sweat buckets in the 45-minute class, and then ended with some of Kelly’s moves. She sure is smooth! I was able to do the lunges and the pushup/pikes but I was sure more awkward than Kelly!
I got home and put some veggies in the oven while I showered. I am SO THANKFUL to be able to cook lunch at home a few days a week. This was a small acorn squash, 1/4 a large green pepper, a portabello mushroom and a carrot, all sprayed generously with cooking spray and sprinkled with salt, pepper and garam masala and baked for 30 minutes at 400*. I ate about 75% with lunch and have a few leftovers.
I topped a bed of baby spinach (which was drizzled in EVOO and salt) with about half a cup of leftover Red Lentil Dal and Near East Pilaf long with the veggies and a sprinkle of pecans.
And had a plate of oranges with it –
And I had a few beans for dessert –
