Hammy and Chili

Tonight's Bikram was my first class since I pulled my hammy a few days ago. I thought I was healed, since my hamstring no longer hurt during normal life, buuuuttt no. 

About half way through the class, I started to feel that sharp ache in the back of my right leg again, so I just decided to not push it and only do the postures that didn't aggravate that area.


But that's ok, because I had THIS to look forward to...

I made this Vegetarian Butternut Squash & Bean Chili last night and let it simmer right up until we went to bed, so dinner was ready when I got home tonight! My favorite :)

I dumped a BUNCH of veggies on top of my chili, but I promise there is chili under there, and it was DELISH.

With I side of the best homemade cake buttermilk cornbread EVER.

I topped it off with some freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese and a few drops of unnecessary was spicy enough on it's own!

Today's lunch was a quick one due to an enormous amount of work to be done. A cinnamon raisin english muffin topped with Justin's Vanilla Almond Butter (OMG). I also had a big 'ole apple, handfuls of Goldfish, pretzels, and a Luna bar. 

Not the most nutritious lunch, but THAT BUTTER...insane. If you see this at your local Whole Foods, stock.up.

Breakfast was a bowl of plain oats topped with Biscoff and Wild Squirrel Sneaky Cinnamon at my desk. I completed an hour on the elliptical this morning (resistance level 11, default incline) while looking at food on Pinterest THE WHOLE TIME. Issues.

Now time to enjoy my last slice of funfetti cake, grab my book, and head to bed. It is amazing how much harder I sleep if I read right before going to bed. I realize this is not a phenomenon, but worth mentioning :)

After finishing the Hunger Games series (absolutely loved), I started The Kite Runner. Everyone said it was amazing, so I was intrigued. I am still waiting for it to pick up, but starting to realize that it may not pick up and just might not be the best read after the action-packed Hunger Games...

We'll see!

I hope everyone's week is off to a great start! Make it a good one!!

Have you read The Kite Runner? Thoughts??


  1. Read the Kite Runner in HS and it's most definitely worth the time to read! Stick with it :)

  2. The Kite Runner is one of my favorite books... seriously... stick with it. It'll pick up. and probably make you cry. a lot.
