Summer Food and Life Changes

Yesterday was wonderfully relaxing. Enjoyed a workout with Tab, came home and did my food prep & laundry, floated in the pool, and we bbq'd for dinner :-) Shrimp in a garlic/rosemary marinade , Quinoa salad, and corn on the cob, plus fresh strawberries & blackberries after. Normally I wouldn't do corn with quinoa (double starch), but hey - it's summer! :-)

Today has seen some major changes... Bill resigned his position as Arizona Sales Manager for Tot Turf and will now be pursuing his goals full time. I'll share more info soon, but suffice it to say it's an exciting & scary time around our house! :-)

9pm update: 20 minutes of grueling intervals on the stair-monster are complete. Grueling. Leave me panting, drenched and wobbly kind of grueling. My butt cheeks are throbbing, lol. No lifting today. I'm trying to baby my back (messed it up early last week) so leg day was out, but the stairs don't hurt my back... kinda felt it was an ok trade. Yesterday was chest and triceps. Tomorrow will be back & biceps. I'd love to do abs, but I've gotta wait and see how my back is. 

The hubby had to go to Tucson today and is just now traveling back home (long day for him!). I know he's already eaten (though probably not something Chelle-approved), but I decided to bake up a new recipe. www.ElanasPantry.com has one for Blueberries & Cream cupcakes... I didn't have any frozen blueberries, but I did have cranberries, so I tried that. Haven't tasted them yet. Waiting on the man. :-)  If they're any good, I'll post the recipe and the nutritional data.

Dinner was super simple, since it was just me... grilled lean pork loin and 1/2 cup of quinoa salad.  I'm working on getting the nutritional info for that up, too.
