Kevin and I sort of had a little date night last night, so I’m going to keep this post short n’ sweet. There’s no time for post-prepping when there are snuggles to be had!
I started off the day with a workout. A good sweat is the best way to start a Monday… well, unless you’re on vacation or something. I did my Power Pyramid Treadmill Workout again, and I liked it just as much as last time.
Don’t mind the semi-creepy lighting…
Lunch was simple, yet it was also simply delicious! Romain with pear vinaigrette, strawberries, cauliflower and some of the chicken I baked on Sunday. You’ll be seeing a repeat on WIAW for sure!
Speaking of repeats, Kevin and I loved this Cuban Picadillo recipe the last time I made it, so I whipped it up again last night. My body was craving some iron, and beef was just the ticket. Couple that iron with the vitamin C from the tomato sauce, and talk about a winner! The olives and raisins, on the other hand, those just taste good.
Have I mentioned that the hubby and I are both olive freaks? We both swiped a couple extra before throwing the others into the pot. Yum!

Exhausted. That’s the first word I’d pick to describe myself right now. This picture of Cleo shows exactly how I feel. She’s totally passed out, but she’s still got a content little grin on her face. (What? You know you give your pets people-like expressions too.)
I was up early Saturday with a lot on my to-do list. Remember that barre video I linked to in Friday’s post? I recommend you check it out if you’re into that kind of thing.
I did these two videos back-to-back on Saturday morning. Though I wasn’t sore after, my quads were definitely feeling it!
After a couple errands, Kevin and I drove up to Raleigh to meet some friends. They’re getting married in a few months; aren’t they cute??? All of us got to watch the Hurricanes beat the Panthers. Go Canes! (my first NHL game)
Sunday was the usual- cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, and my favorite show, 60 Minutes. I whipped up some tasty stuff though, including some awesome muffins, which I will share with you tomorrow, my lunch for the week, and this awesome dinner. Winnner!

- Did you have a busy weekend?
- Are you as exhausted as I am?
