Catching up

Do you ever have one of those weekends where you are non-stop and when Sunday night comes you realize you didn't get in any quality couch time? Well, that was my weekend. We were go-go-go from Friday after work until last night, and since I didn't have time to blog over the weekend I have some catching up to do! I was very impressed with this picture I took while we were enjoying date night at a yummy sushi restaurant (did I mention we had sushi twice this weekend? Ooopsie. Yum.) It made me think just for a moment that we were somewhere tropical and beautiful, but then I snapped out of it.

I also just had to share that for the first time in my life, I tried brussel sprouts, and liked them! I'm not sure why but my mom never made brussel sprouts when we were kids, but she didn't (I'm guessing she doesn't like them...) so I never had a reason to try them until now. 

You can make them just as you would any other veggie- steam, bake, raw, boil (don't recommend this though). I decided to coat them with a little olive oil, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder and I baked for about 20 minutes.

They were good enough to buy again at the grocery store to have with dinner this week, but I have to admit they're not my favorite veggie ever. B said he liked them, but I think he just liked the idea of not eating asparagus [my favorite and I may or may not slightly favor it for most meals]. This is kind of like how he decided he really likes french beans, but I think they are exactly the same as regular green beans, just cut thinner... basically I think he just likes anything new :)

After a nice Sunday spent with family watching football and a dinner out with good friends, Monday is here again.

And now it's back to the grind. 

Oh, I almost forgot- we started Phase 3 of Jamie Eason's LiveFit trainer today! Phase 3 is the leaning out phase so we are doing high rep ranges with lots of plyo and HIIT. I will have to admit, it's going to be a big commitment to make it through these 4 weeks without slacking, just because the workouts are so dang long and it's forcing us to go to the gym (and get up) earlier. {The alarm goes off at 4:30am. Crazies, I know!} I totally think it will be worth it though and I'm hoping by the end both B and I will be at a place that we would like to maintain and we can go back to doing regular workouts. If you haven't already checked out the trainer you should! Click here to learn more :)

Question: What veggie did you think you would never like, but then tried it and it wasn't so bad after all?
