Another morning up at 3:30am. I actually love working the morning shifts. People that workout in the mornings are either very happy or half asleep. I haven’t heard one complaint.
Now I’m at home watching Spongebob with Braiden and blogging before it’s time to take him to school.
Today I’m linking up with Running with Spoons for her Thinking Out Loud segment. If you want to check out some awesome blogs after here, stop on over there.
With my working out, I’ve decided to focus less on my “cardio” and more on my strength training. I think this will help me more in the long run. (No pun intended but it’s fitting)
I’m already out of cardio shape and will be pretty much starting over from scratch after the baby, which is fine with me. But if I can build and keep some leg muscles and core muscles it will not only make coming back to running easier but also labor easier.
On to the usual randomness.
Did you know it’s national cheeseburger day? Well you should and now you do. It’s a very important holiday to me and one that I take seriously. Let’s see what kind of creativness will come out of me today.
Saw this on Facebook and had to send it to Josh yesterday. Hint, hint Josh….
I laughed way too hard when I saw this. Totally true though.
(Yes, I’m still obsessed with Instagram. @kickashmom)
This made me fall in love with Aaron Paul Josh and life even more. Seriously, those two are just about perfect for each other. Lauren Paul’s kind campaign is everything I stand for.
I’ve had this recipe for a couple days now but I have been forgetting to post it. I have been seeing this sauce around lately and decided to give it a try. Healthy eating can get a little boring but when all else fails, grill some meal and add a sauce.
My chimichurri sauce is a nice herby sauce with a little kick to it.
It pairs perfectly with steak but would also be really good on a burger or grilled chicken.
Chimichurri is a Mexican sauce so when you say the name you’re supposed to roll the r’s. I however have never been able to roll my r’s and have always been jealous of those who could. I took Spanish for 4 years in school and failed r rolling miserably.
- 1 Cup Cilantro
- 1 Cup Parsley
- 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
- 1/2 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
- 2 Tbsp Juice From a Jar of Jalapenos (Optional)
- Red pepper flakes to taste (Optional)
- Process everything in a food processor. Scrape down the sides (don't be lazy) and process some more. It's that easy folks.
