Evening in the life + easy dinner idea.
Today I thought I’d share a Tuesday evening at our house. I got off work at 4:30pm that night and had signed up for a ClassPass pilates class. I’m really liking ClassPass. I love getting variety in the classes I can take. I’m planning to write a post on activity/movement soon, I’m just trying to figure out what I want to say.
That evening I tried out BodyRock Pilates.
The class was right before dinner, but I knew I needed something to eat. So I grabbed a handful of chocolate covered almonds.
I loved the instructor of the pilates class. She kept making jokes about how pilates is so great because you don’t have to sweat. Then she said that if any of the ladies had a date after class she’d be happy to turn up the fan intensity to make sure no one sweat. I like exercise instructors who don’t take exercise/their body too seriously.
This was only my second time using the reformer machine. They’re so different for me! I really enjoy it.
AND the studio had this chair in it, which was awesome.
Once home, I prepped dinner. That night we had burrito bowls of sorts.
When I grocery shopped for the week I felt so tired of rotisserie chicken, so I ended up getting these chicken meatballs. They were a fun change. I think they’d be good on pizza.
The meatballs came fully cooked, so I just had to sauté them until hot. I cooked some farro (aka the fluffiest brown rice…I’m still a huge farro fan) and chopped up some veggies. Veggies included: radishes, orange bell peppers, and cilantro.
Served with a side of tortilla chips. Topped with cheese, guac and salsa. I ended up going back for seconds because I decided I didn’t get enough meatballs or guac the first time.
To drink I had my favorite summer drink of lemonade + sparkling water.
After dinner, Maggie and I hung out outside for awhile.
I played on my phone and found this lovely positive affirmation that the donuteatingdietitian shared. I screenshot A TON of positive affirmations like this and save them in a file on my phone to share with clients as needed. And they’re great positivity for me too.
Later that evening Andrew and I watched TV while I put together Wednesday’s blog post. Then I made us a cookie snack from this recipe. Enjoyed with a glass of ice cold milk.
I hope your week had been filled with food and movement you enjoy! I would love to hear about it.
