Today was one of those days where it was a pretty normal day. I went for a run, did yoga/pilates, and then some strength training. I found my yoga/pilates video on netflix and it’s pretty awesome. It’s very relaxing but an amazing ab workout. I love the stretching too which is something I am terrible at doing. They have a 10 minute one as well that I am hoping to do every day when I come home from work simply as a way to stretch out my muscles. The videos I am doing are workouts not a typical yoga meditation video if that’s what you are looking for. After that I decided to tackle our house. I put away all of our Christmas decorations which I now have a place to store. I then cleaned up the house. After some veggie wraps I tackled lesson planning. I wasn’t looking forward to doing any school work but it went by fast and I am excited for my lessons for the next month. Crazy that the semester is almost done. I decided I was going to make lasagna for dinner. I love lasagna as long as it is vegetarian and has bechamel sauce or some form of it. After getting rid of a lot of acidic food in our diets because of Dave’s acid reflex when I have highly acidic food I get pretty bad acid reflex so I try to avoid it. I made a recipe that I really like from Emeril on Food Network. It’s called Spinach, Mushroom, and Four Cheese Lasagna. My only problem with lasagna is the time it takes. I would say this one is a a medium on the time scale but it still took at least 40 minutes to make everything. I also do a half soy creamer/half soy milk mix and I cut the recipe in half. I only use mozzarella cheese as well.
This is from the website so mine will obviously look better:) Bonus of waiting for the lasagna to cook – getting all of my dishes done and enjoying a glass of wine. Not bad for a day of not working. Other bonus of my day reading on Skinny Runner’s Blog a sale for Mizuno running shoes. I am normally a Brooks shoe girl but I cannot find them for under $80. That may not be much for some but I go through a lot of shoes a year so I try and find them for under $60 and by them in pairs, something I neglected to do this last time. I wanted to try a new pair and thanks to the Runners World Shoe Finder the pair I got was a recommendation for me. Thanks to the amazing sale which was $40 off a pair of shoes I got two pairs. Pretty pumped to see them on Wednesday and for the fact that I paid nothing for shipping or tax:) Happy Thursday!
