Catching up, or trying to!


It literally feels like I lost a day somewhere.  Who knows where it went?

I had a million+1 things to do, and I think I got 2, maybe 3 done. I guess that’s how it goes sometimes.

On to a quick meal, that was surprisingly good.

I had planned on making tacos yesterday out of brown rice and beans, but the taco spice mix was nowhere in sight.

I was pressed for time, and I found this lovely packet!

I combined:

  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 2 cups pinto beas
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1 packet mild chilli seasoning mix

I cooked it for about 10 minutes and then topped it with some cream and cheese.

Again, it was surprisingly good.

I only wish I had sautéed some onions & green peppers and this meal would have been an A+.

I had a weird night with Brielle last night. She got up an hour after I put her down, which usually never happens. Then she woke up at 4:45 am all happy and ready to play, play, play. I had planned on running at 5 so that went out the window.

After about an hour of her looking around, waving her little arms she finally went to sleep. So I really needed the run and I hopped on the treadmill and was able to squeak in a 2.5 mile run. I’ll take what I can get at this point :)

I’m planning on another weights workout in the am, but let’s see if I have another play date with my bebe at 4am. Let’s hope not :)

Yay, hooray for Friday!
