too much thought, I finally decided on a workout yesterday. I really miss being able to workout outdoors, I am seriously lacking in my Vitamin D this week! This heat wave needs to end like now please!
Anyways, I decided on an old DVD that I haven’t done in awhile
And let me tell you, I am soooo sore this morning. The process of sitting is absolute torture! I guess that means that it worked. The DVD has 2 parts – Metabolic and Strength for a total of about 50 minutes.
Now on to something more important 😉
Dinner Last Night
Meatloaf! Not your momma’s meatloaf that is…
It has oatmeal in it for a health benefit and extra oomph. Here is my healthified version…
Not My Momma’s Meatloaf
- 1/3 cup BBQ sauce
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. seasoned salt
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 2 large eggs
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- about 1 lb. lean ground beef
- 1 cup quick cooking oats
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and mist a 9×5 loaf pan with cooking spray.
2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix gently with your hands until incorporated. Gently pack the mixture into the loaf pan
3. Bake for 45 minutes then carefully remove and spread more BBQ sauce over the top and bake for 10 more minutes. Let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and then enjoy!
On the side I whipped up a simple summer salad by cutting up some red, yellow and orange peppers, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and onion. Then, i drizzled some Fat Free Italian dressing over it and mixed it together (the longer you let it marinate and sit, the better it tastes!) And that’s it for that! So simple and so delicious!
It’s a great salad for a summertime BBQ 😉
This morning’s breakfast looked a lot like yesterday’s – except I added a new cereal that I bought yesterday to the mix
I think it has to be my new favorite – it was so good! I mixed in a little bit of my “cinnamon toast crunch” like yesterday and I was sad when I saw the bottom of the bowl 😦 Food does that to me sometimes.
I added some strawberries, vanilla unsweetened almond milk, yogurt, banana and the white pomegranate tea from yesterday also. Yummy!
I forgot how much I loved cereal, I was stuck in my oatmeal rut for the whole winter – but it is way too hot for all that.
AND check out that rockin’ mug
My sister painted that for me for my graduation 😉 Ain’t it so pretty? (It’s a world because my degree is in Global Affairs for all of you playing at home)
Looks like I’m stuck inside again today – don’t want to melt in that VA heat.
Have a great day!
