Mundane Monday

I stopped at Trader Joe’s after Pilates last night and picked up some food. The problem with Trader Joe’s is that I buy a lot of things there, but nothing that really works together as a meal. Though I suppose that’s the danger of shopping anywhere without a grocery list. I had planned to make beans and rice for dinner but accidently purchased tomato sauce instead of stewed tomatoes. So I ended up eating hummus and baked chips with a side of sliced mango. Not the most balanced of meals, is it? I find that whenever I have a snacky sort of dinner, I can never really get full. Full isn’t the right word. More like I never am satisfied. That leads to a lot more snacking. It’s just a vicious cycle. Moral of the story – make meals for dinner!!

By the way – Trader Joe’s Whole Grain Drink: GROSS!! Major TJ fail. I should have bought the almond milk that I was going to originally buy. Or just stuck with cow’s milk since that’s what Jason prefers and I don’t drink much milk anyway.

I stopped at Kroger after work tonight to get the correct tomatoes. I was going to make the beans and rice but Jason wanted the other dinner that I had ingredients for – Inside Out Lasagna


On the side, I roasted some broccoli. For my roasted broccoli, I tossed some fresh broccoli with about a tablespoon of olive oil. I sprinkled it with Adobo and stuck it in a 375 oven for half an hour. When it was done, I sprinkled it with parmesan cheese. Yum.

Today marked the beginning of the fifth week of P90X which means that I’m scheduled to use some of the DVDs that I haven’t used before. Today was chest and shoulders. I’m going to take pictures to see if I can notice any changes from the way I looked at the beginning and now. I don’t expect to see much of a difference, but I do think that my arms have a little more definition.
