Kevin came home sick today. (Vacation hangover?)
No ballroom dance class for us tonight.
I’m a little happy because I didn’t have to dance with 11 strangers. But very sad because next week I will be the remedial example student x 10!!! Ayiyi.
I thought Kevin deserved some soup. I also felt like we probably didn’t need any extra pasta after this past weekend. I Googled Paleo Chicken Soup and came up with this recipe for Chicken Tortilla(less) Soup from Paleo Comfort Foods. Perfect.
And because it’s that time of year, I thought it would be a good idea to add some squash.
Squash is hard to cut. So I cheated. I’m not ashamed.
This was an even better cheat.
And I didn’t use spices. I used the Simply Organic Fajita spice packet. Obviously, I wasn’t feeling overly ambitious tonight.
Papa Bear & Mama Bear sized bowls. Kevin had some Red Hot Blues crumbs with his, and we both had avocado! We ate dinner in bed. I could get used to that!
I’m on the fence about the addition of the squash. I really don’t like squash by itself. I think it’s gross. Super gross. But I’m okay with it when it’s spiced over. Maybe if the chunks were a little smaller? I found myself wishing the squash chunks were sweet potatoes. Maybe it’s a sign…
I just have to tell you that the dogs did not get up until after 11AM this morning!!! That’s totally unheard of. They’re typically clamoring for breakfast by 8AM whenever I’m trying to sleep in. And as soon as I made the bed, they jumped right back in.
5k run with Pippa C. We averaged an 8:22 pace. That’s one of the fastest paces I’ve done with my little squirrel huntress — it can be a little risky!
Fabulous 50 - (via LAX Home WODs)
- 50 tuck jumps
- 50 squats
- 50 air squats
- 50 supermans
- 50 lunge walk steps
- 50 situps
- 50 second plank hold
- 50 burpees <—- Always a fun way to finish!
My time – 19:58! I was really pushing the burpees to finish under 20. Hooray!!!!
Super sleepy Pippa. I called her name, and she opened an eye and an ear for me. What a sweetie.
How do you like people to take care of you when you’re sick? I tend to just be in complete denial that I’m sick since it happens so rarely, and I’m so stubborn about it. I’m feeding Kevin Fitmixer aminos and paleo soup. Sounds about right.
