First off, Happy Halloween!! Eat lots of candy today!
Okay, don't do that. But one piece won't kill you. (hahaha I HATE when people say that!)
Second, I almost didn't make it to Halloween this year because I almost died last night.
Okay, not really but things could have been pretty bad.
This, my friends, was a tortilla. A brown rice tortilla to be exact.
I coated it with a little olive oil and stuck it in the oven to crisp it up a little and literally 3 minutes later I opened the oven to check on it and there were FLAMES. EVERYWHERE! I screamed, obviously, and B came rushing in. I feel like everything you are taught as a kid about fires and what to do in case of a fire completely goes out the window when there really is a fire right in front of your face! Anyway, he tried swatting it a few times with the kitchen towel and that didn't do anything. So then he closed the oven (suffocate it?) and when he opened it back up it was literally twice the size. That was the "oh shit" moment. Then, after freaking out together for another 10-15 seconds B grabbed the kitchen faucet and sprayed it until it went out. DUH. Why didn't we think of that right away?
I will be forever made fun of for this, but don't worry dinner turned out just fine in the end. Thanks to the microwave.
On a completely separate note, I've been getting lots of questions about how my rest week is going... it's going great! I've been getting lots of sleep and definitely feel like I could go back to the gym now, but I'm going to give myself the full week so my next workout will be on Friday morning. Let me tell you... I. CAN'T. WAIT. If you're ever feeling like you need that extra push in the gym, just take a few days off. The rest will give you all the excitement and motivation you need!!
