Unfortunately I am NOT referring to a killer kickboard workout.
I got kicked out of the pool!
By a swim team practice 🙁
I biked to the gym and arrived into the pool room right at 5:15. And just happened to note that the practice started at 5:30. I swam as fast and hard as I possibly could for those 15 minutes.
When I got out, I noticed one lane was staying open. But there were already 2 people in it and they were those types that do a stroke ever other second (as opposed to my thrashing arms trying to speed-swim) so I decided not to bother them. I hate sharing lanes.
I considered taking a rinse-off shower and going back to do some elliptical, but I figured that just wasn’t that cool. So I settled with my 15 minutes of hard swimming and 30+ minutes of easy biking to and from and called it an easy day. Bummer though because I had the TIME, ENERGY, REST and WEATHER to make it such a good workout!
I came home and helped Matt prepare a romantic Tuesday night dinner fer 2
Dinner featured eggplant parmesan – very similar to this recipe. Matt just broiled them 3 minutes for side and then baked for 15 minutes, smothered on some sauce and Organic Valley cheddar and baked for another 10 minutes or so.
They were DELICIOUS however the integrity of the eggplant was questioned. It was not on its freshest day. I ended up eating 3/5 of my rounds (and the cheese off of those last 2!)
On the side we made these incredible salads – romaine dressed in olive oil and honey and sea salt and topped with sauteed mushrooms, fresh tomato, avocado and some thin cheesy croutons made from Matt’s whole grains sourdough. SUCH a good side salad!!
Lastly! A small piece of sourdough from his loaf he brought home from work. Crunch!
We chatted over Table In A Bag
After dinner I had my last bite of Banana, Date, Coconut Chocomize. Scrumpt.
I have a few more things to do and then I’m headed up for some reading. With all the times I mention reading in bed you’d think I’d fly through books like Jenna does! But I am a pretty slow reader and only get through a chapter a night (if I’m lucky!). But I love to read!
