Lifting, Living, Decorating - Move.Eat.Live.

Phew, finally made it to Friday! That means Fun for Friday around here. I've been enjoying recapping my Move.Eat.Live. moments from the week, so I thought I'd share again. And, as always, I would love to hear your Move.Eat.Live. moments as well.

Move

I've gotten in some good runs this week, including a 10-miler yesterday morning. It's supposed to be uncomfortably hot this weekend. Since I was going to be up at the crack of dawn running yesterday anyway, I thought it'd be smart to get the run done. I had wanted another 12-miler, but will gladly take the 10, especially because it was shared in good company with Amy.

I got in some good weight workouts this week as well. I love working so close to my home. This lets me get in weights easily during my lunch break. Plus, slinging some weights around can help if you're feeling stressed.


Eat

Last night I made a version of my garlicky tomato sauce (sorry, forgot to take pictures but I can assure you it was yummy). It's such a simple sauce using fresh cherry or grape tomatoes, tons of garlic, white wine and fresh basil.

But last night I wanted to thicken the sauce a bit so I added in some tomato paste as well as nutritional yeast flakes, spinach, artichokes and some tofu that I had marinated in a homemade basil vinaigrette.

Jason immediately asked what I had done different. Sometimes it turns out in your favor to revisit a tried-and-true recipe and jazz it up a bit.

Live

This week was pretty busy for both Jason and I. I didn't really get a chance to just sit outside and read, though, it was too hot for that quite honestly. But I did manage to finish some home decorating projects (which you've probably already seen me sharing and posting about).

I'm hoping to enjoy some down time this weekend. We may go to a baseball game. This is the last weekend for the Arkansas Travelers to be playing here, and wouldn't you know that it's supposed to be 100 degrees. Guess those temps will be a fantastic excuse to enjoy some pool time though right? Anyone want to join me?


What's your Move.Eat.Live for the week - or for the weekend?
