It’s nearly one in the morning and I can’t sleep, so you know what I decide sounds good? Coffee. Probably not one of my best choices but you know what? I’m ok with that. I may not make sense but, what can I say, I love my coffee!
Today was a take it easy kinda day. I have been really pushing myself this week and I wanted to give my body a bit of time to recover before starting the Couch to 5k program next week. I’m finally going to start my training since the 5k I signed up for is quickly approaching. The closer it gets the more nervous I get. I’m pretty sure that in the beginning this program (and possibly the entire thing) is going to be one of the hardest things I have ever done. I’m hoping though, that I will eventually grow to love running, if not I will at least be able to say “I am a warrior!”.
Since it was going to be a less intense day, I decided to have my “consciously active” thing be raking leaves in the back yard. I got a good portion of the yard done while Abby was sleeping. Not only did I get something active in, but its less work to do later. I also spent a portion of my morning shopping for a few birthday gifts. I thought that we had a birthday party to go to tomorrow but it turns out its actually next week, Oops! I guess I’m ahead of the game but that means we have no plans for tomorrow. Please don’t worry, I’m sure we will figure out something .
I didn’t have much of a plan for dinner tonight. I was actually thinking PB&J would be just fine, until I saw the spaghetti squash in the fridge. YUM spaghetti squash spaghetti!
Have you tried this before? I’ts great its such a healthy and great tasting alternative to traditional spaghetti. It’s super easy too!
Simply cut a spaghetti squash in half from top to bottom then using a spoon take out the seeds. Spray the inside of the squash with a non-stick spray or drizzle with a little olive oil. Place the Squash cut side down on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 50 minutes. Once the squash is finished baking, flip the squash and using a fork drag across the “meat” of the squash to create noodles. At this point top with anything you would top regular noodles with.
I had some tomato sauce and ground turkey left over in the fridge so I through together a quick easy sauce. I don’t have a recipe for the sauce I just kinda threw in what sounded good at the time. Here’s what was in my sauce today; onions, garlic, tomato sauce, ground turkey, Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and a good amount of Cinnamon (I use the cinnamon as a replacement for sugar, it gives a sweeter unique flavor). I was very happy with how well the meal turned out and it looks as if Abby has a new favorite meal.
Once Matt got home I rushed out the door to go to a friends house who was having a thirty-one party. Have you heard of this company before? I hadn’t. It seems like a pretty cool company. Besides the cool bags for any occasion, this company is an american and a Christian company, both are bonuses in my book! I practiced self control and only ordered a few items, and several others made it to my wish list.
Well, it seems as though the coffee didn’t have too much of an affect on me, I’m beyond tired. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
