Got my secret video project done this AM, so Friday is looked much more wide open 🙂
Then it was off to the gym. I met Victoria in the cardio area for 20 minutes of Stairmaster before we went into Sculpt class. Yet again, the class left me shaking. I can’t stand that burn when your muscle is SOOOO tied and you think you’re done and she says “One more set!! 16….15….14…” ARGH! So much pain!! But I survived
Oatmeal fueled me well this morning and by 1PM I was ready to eat –
Yep, that’s a good ol’ hot dog!!
Applegate Farms sent me some dog-shaped goodies! Um, a LOT of goodies!!! Most are going in the freezer to be enjoyed throughout the fall.
I started the taste exploration with a good old fashioned nitrate-free, organic, grass-fed hot dog. There’s zero guilt in this dog! They are 110 calories each and come with a piece of mind. Sure hot dogs are a bit high in fat + saturated fat, but consider I do not dine on red meat, whole milk, sausage, french fries etc. on a daily basis, no worries here. The nutritional info can be found here.
I didn’t have time to grill him, so I nuked until hot and put on a toasted fresh Great Harvest bun (which Matt made for me this morning – otherwise I would have just had it wrapped in a slice of bread!) + ketchup and mustard. It was totally awesome!!! I can’t tell you the last time I had an old fashioned hot dog. What delicious flavor! Could have been the grass-fed beef, which I actually prefer to regular these days. (I can’t describe the difference – it’s almost gamier (is that a word?))
Served with grapes
And a salad
Greens dressed in olive oil topped with some leftover sweet potato fries, carrot, green beans and the very last of my hummus.
My dog was very filling, though, so I only ate half of the salad (and of course all the good toppings!) and am saving the rest for later.
Sleeping Beauty. He loves his floor naps!!
I’m off to a walking study session, then test + class, then home to a husband-made soup.
