Crispy Burritos on Rest Day Wednesday

Rest Day Wednesday
I wanted to really thank everyone for the workout clothing suggestions. I learned of some brands I'd never heard of before and now would feel more comfortable shelling out the money for Lululemon too. I did find it interesting that a few of you are very loyal to a specific brand or two and some don't care as long as it was a great deal. And, apparently I'm one of the only people around who doesn't care for running shorts.

Well, today ended up being a rest day. My legs are worn out and needed a break after the front/back split workouts. Even boxing didn't sound appealing today. That meant standing ;-) So I fitfully dozed after Jason left for swim at 5 am. Actually, I had a pretty crappy night's sleep. I was up 5 different times. I just couldn't seem to get comfy and stay asleep. I think I am starting to get a bit nervous about the Cathe Road Trip next week. I'm going over lists in my head and worrying about all the things we have yet to get the hotel in Philly for Sunday and Monday nights.

This was the most spontaneous trip I have ever signed up for. I am a planner, this was soooo not planned. And, it's still not planned really. I know it's going to be a blast thought - I just keep reminding myself of that.

Busy Afternoon = Jason Cooking
Anyway, after work I went and indulged myself with a hair cut and a trip to Target. This time I was more successful with workout clothes. I picked up 2 pairs of short and another (black) sports bra. I think I may hit up the other Target in our area to see if they have my size in a particular sports bra that would match one of the pairs of shorts. So, needless to say, I got home a lot later than normal and was STARVING. Thankfully, Jason beat me home and started quesadillas that ended up being Crispy Burritos. The filling was spinach, black beans, tomatoes, red and green bell peppers, fresh jalapenos, onions, and MealStarters Chik'n Strips.

Unfortunately I was out of homemade seitan to use for these. He was going to do veggie burgers, but I am out of those too. Apparently I need to get myself in the kitchen at some point this weekend.


  1. Your freezer sounds like mine at the moment. Seems like I am out of everything right now too. Sounds like a great impromptu dinner to me, BTW. ;-)


  2. I hear ya! I need to stock up my freezer with bean burgers! I always make a great plan to make a lot and freeze them, which I do...and then I eat them!

    I am so jealous of the Cathe trip! I can't wait to hear about it!!!

  3. Cannot WAIT for the RT! Spontaneous! Love it! And we are going to have a BLAST!

  4. You were out of your frozen goodness?! This isn't like you! Jason is so sweet for having your meal ready for you ;)

    Do you plan your meals for the week? Or just whatever goes?


  5. hey lady i do vaguely remember that home gym post. i dont need tons of stuff, just a few key items. I thought you had a pretty macked out gym (from memory)! Anyway, not having much in the freezer or made up? Enjoy the spontanaeity that comes w/out planning or over thinking things!

  6. That trip looks sweeeeeet! Spontaneous trips are the most adventurous kind. Take lots of pics! I can't wait to hear about it!

    Glad you found success with your workout wear. Target makes some cute running skorts. I also hit up Walmart for workout capris. My workout clothes never last long, so I usually aim for the affordable kind.

    Those burritos look delish! Your man can certainly COOK! :)

  7. Girl, you know I am all over those crispy burritos. I may just have to try and work those in this week:) Gotta love when the husband takes charge and gets it done!

    I'm so excited for your trip! Sounds like so much fun.

    The crispy burritos look awesome! Your trip sounds like it will be so much fun! I swear by Lululemon for workout clothing - a lot of my items I've had for 5+ years!

    I wish I could come on the trip with you!! I always think i'm a super stepper until I realize there is no way I could talk like Cathe is during the videos :)

    I hope you and your body enjoyed the rest!

  10. I'm glad you had some good retail therapy! I am a total planner and my road trip has been keeping me up at night. I should be done planning it today with any luk!

  11. Alicia @ Vegan Epicurean I don't know how everything just seemed to disappear all at once LOL.

    Sarena @ The Non-Dairy Queen At one point Jason kept complaining about ALL of the veggie burgers stuffed in the freezer, now there's not even a store-brand to be seen. I will definitely post all about the Road Trip!!!

    Tanya @ Tanya's Daily Product Reviews I'm going to have to seriously work on re-packing mine ;-)

    Jolene @ To Be Determined I'm still blaming it all on you and Jessica by the way ;-)

    Kris @ iheartwellness I used to plan very well, now it seems to be whatever goes. Not sure how that happened.

    Averie @ Loves Veggies and Yoga No space for a totally macked out gym unfortunately.

    Laura @ B Foxy Fitness This trip will be insane I swear. I'll be sure to post the itinerary. He used to be a cook at a French restaurant actually, so he really can cook. LOL

    Candice @ ChiaSeedMe It was definitely nice not to have to try to cook b/c I was SOOOO hungry. I was on the verge of being at total bear.

    Sarah @ Run Sarah I guess if they last that long then they are definitely worth the extra money. Thanks for letting me know.

    April @ The Weigh I Am I wish you could join us - how fun would that be to meet up like that! I am totally expecting to have my butt kicked ;-)

    Bela @ It's Life, Max it Out I'm typically the type that prints out a map and plots out everything down to the nearest grocery store. This one is keeping me up b/c I haven't done anything like that. Wow......

  12. Your road trip is going to be so much fun! I can't wait to read all about it!

  13. Those burritos looks wonderful!!! The road trip will be really fun!!! I can't wait to hear all about it!

    It sounds like you guys are going to have a great time! Some of my favorite trips are ones I decided on last minute

  15. That event- the Cathe one- looks like so much fun!! I'm going to be in Wildwood NJ that week- I wonder if it's anywhere close to that- too bad it's sold out :(
    YAY for new workout clothes- oh ya- totally forgot to mention Target- guess other people did :) I love their workout stuff too..and of course Old Navy.
    Target does damage on my wallet though- I can never manage to get out of there w/o buying a few things that I had not intended too- haha!!

  16. good to give yourself a break!

    your food pics always seem to have a similar theme/color/or common ingredient--i can't pin it. is it tex/mex?

  17. Your trip is going to be a blast!!! I am looking forward to hearing about it!!

    The wrap combination sounds good!!

  18. Tell Jason to come on over and get started in my kitchen:)

    You focus on what you CAN control. Don't worry about the things you can't. You're going to have a blast!

  19. sometimes its nice to reverse roles for the day. Jason knows exactly how to treat his wife. Good job on training him, haha! jk!

  20. spontaneous road trips are scary for sure but i think u signed up for quite a blast! you will enjoy urself im sure!! i love the idea <3

    oh crispy burritos? great switch up to soft wraps!!

  21. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg I know I'll end up having a total blast - I do get to meet 2 blogger buddies as well. How can that be bad? We'll also be staying in Philly 2 nights, Never been there.

    Kelly @ Healthy Living with Kelly Thanks girl. I bet it'll end up having to be like a 3-part series!

    Madeline @ Greens and Jeans I'm really hoping that this turns out to be one of those awesome spur of the moment decisions.

    Holly @ Greek Yogurt and Apple Slices Hmmmm, need to see how close Wildwood is to Glassboro. It'd certainly be cool if we could somehow meet!

    Kenzie @ A Healthy Purpose The break was much needed. Maybe it's the photography LOL.

    Jolene @ Everyday Foodie Thanks, hope it's not going to be too boring to everyone else to read about - expect lots of pictures at the very least.

    Nichole @ Live for the Run Very good suggestion on where to focus my energy.

    Lindsay @ Cotter Crunch Yes, it really is nice to not have to cook all the time.

    Kelsey @ Snacking Squirrel I think it's kind of funny that only my blog readers would really understand the insanity of this RT and think it's cool - I mean, paying to get my butt kicked for a whole weekend??? ;-)

  22. i love cathe! that sounds so fun!!! you will have a blast!! thast graet for listening to your body and taking a break!!

  23. Good for you for resting!!

    My freezer is bare too. Hence all the cabbage and cauliflower for my only veggies! Ha!

  24. Hey Love! I just wanted to stop by and let you know that I awarded you today ;)


  25. I definitely need to get a guy! That is too sweet that he had already started dinner!
    Those burritios still look amazing!

  26. AnonymousJuly 22, 2010

  27. Naomi @ One Fit Foodie I really can't wait to meet her. That will just make my year!

    April @ Foods of April Glad I'm not the only one pulling out the dregs of the freezer. Though, cauliflower and cabbage sounds good to me ;-)

    Kris @ iheartwellness Thanks sweetie!

    Kristen @ Swanky Dietitian Thank you ma'am. I got pretty lucky.

    Kalli @ Fit and Forty Something It's hard not to thing "what have I gotten myself into!!!" LOL

Hump Day and More Pineapples

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too

Hitting the Gym and Lazy Means Creative Tex-Mex Creation

Sunday, Gym Day Why do vacations and min-vacations go by so quickly? Just doesn't seem quite right. Anyway, we left Branson around 9:30 am to head back home. It was a pretty uneventful drive back, which is usually a good thing. We got home and unpacked, then I headed up to the gym. I started with a 10-minute treadmill run to warm up before hitting the weights for back and light legs then abs. I went with a giant set for back then supersets for legs. GS - 4x8 Underhand barbell rows Pullovers Double-arm rows SS#1 Rear-leg elevated lunges (Bulgarian Split Squats) - 3x8 Calf raises - 3x20 SS#2 - 2x8 Walking lunges Plie squats with low-end pulse Single-leg deadlifts - 2x8 I did some ab exercises, stretched, and called it quits. Lazy = Crazy Dinner I may have made it to the gym and washed a few loads of laundry, but I never made it to the grocery store - lounging in the pool trumped grocery shopping. This meant getting creative with dinner. We had another package
