Tofu Scramble, Group Ride & Grilled Portobello Sandwiches

Sunday Night Scramble 
Last night we ended up having breakfast for dinner. This is a real rarity as I've never been a big breakfast foods fan (other than say oatmeal). I made up an easy tofu scramble with bell peppers, onions, and spinach. I served up some tempeh bacon and half a bagel with peanut butter. Super simple.
 

I am going to have to remember this meal more often. It wasn't too heavy and you can change out the veggies in the scramble for endless combinations.


Monday Spin
Today ended up being spin class for me. We had rain chances in the forecast, plus it was going to be too warm and muggy for a run. I was supposed to meet a friend after work for spin, so it was all sort of decided ahead of time: Monday = Spin. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to make it. But I went anyway.

It was a pretty good class despite the fact that I've done this one track at least a million times. My legs were talking to me the whole time though. I think they were more tired from yesterday's run (the intervals most likely) than I had realized. But it was good to get them moving.

This is going to be another one of those weeks when I have to be strategic about my workouts. If I want to run, it'll have to be in the morning or at the gym. We have rain in the forecast almost all week. Also, my rest day really needs to be Saturday as we'll be on the road that day heading to the beach. 

I am planning on running in the morning with a friend. This means I must get my butt out of bed and actually do this. At least I know it'll be cooler for the run. Now just need the running gods to smile upon me since my last few outdoor runs weren't on the suckier side.

Grilling Out Sort Of
While it wasn't exactly gorgeous grilling weather, the rain was holding off (or so I thought). Jason had gone to the grocery store and picked up portobellos and some goat cheese. He's not subtle when he wants a certain dish ;-) It's so rare we have real cheese at the house anymore; big treat.

So, I decided to go ahead and grill up the dinner. This wasn't a complicated sandwich. I just wiped the mushrooms with balsamic vinegar. I also brushed some tempeh slices with the balsamic vinegar as well (wanted the protein).

When I went out to top the mushrooms with the goat cheese, that's when I had to go to plan B. The propane tank had just ran out and it started raining at the same time. Guess that worked out quite nicely I suppose.

I had to finish up the sweet potatoes I was also grilling inside. I mean, I was making a sandwich so sweet potatoes had to come into play right? Anyway, I layered up the sandwich with tempeh, portobello, roasted red bell peppers, and spinach and used whole-wheat sandwich thins.

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon . The support and words mean so much to me. My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on. I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear. But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well the

My Home "Gym", Super Saturday With Quinoa Granola Bars

My Home "Gym" As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I had a request to do a post about my home gym. After mulling it over, I thought it was a really great idea. I can show everyone that you can indeed get really great results without having to spend a fortune on a home gym. Don't get me wrong of course, I would LOVE to have the money and room to have a treadmill, a nice weight machine set up, squat rack, even a barbell. Yes, you read that, no barbell (for now). I don't' even have a bar to do chin-ups or pull-ups. The ones that are supposed to fit every doorway do not in fact fit doorways built in 1890 apparently. I must also say that I do have a gym membership that I almost only use for the cardio equipment. It was not until this January that I actually did weights at the gym. So, while I do have gym access, I still choose my home "gym" mostly out of convenience.  Back to my gym: I also wish I had a much larger room. The room used for weights is r

Tex-Mex Quinoa Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Pumped Up Workout I'll readily admit that I did not want to go to the gym today. I had no real excuses to not go though. I was just feeling lazy to be honest. But, I did myself a favor and made myself go. I knew I'd regret it if I didn't go. I think part of my reluctance stems from a bit of boredom. I've gotten into a rut again with workouts. That and sometimes I just am flat out tired of seeing the inside of that place. But, that part aside, boredom all the way. So, I decided to try to do something a little different for my biceps/triceps workout. It's nothing earth-shattering. But it's a switch up from my typical 3 different supersets done as 3 sets of 8 reps....yawn. So, today I did 4 sets of 8 reps for two supersets then I did dropsets at the end starting with heaviest weight for 6 reps, then increasing the number of reps by 2 as I decreased the weights. I did this 4 times (6, 8, 10, 12). SS#1 Alternating bicep curls Double-arm overhead triceps exte
