Last night, I had planned to do one of the "Six Pack Abs" workouts at home and then head to spin class at 7pm. As I drove home from work, I knew none of that was going to happen. I needed a day of rest. The 10 miler really took it out of me and my legs were just plain tired.
I did manage to take Oscar for his regular evening walk in the park. Mainly because he starts jumping for joy as soon as I get changed into comfy clothes. If I take too long getting ready, he starts doing this sad cry. He really knows how to "work" me.
Dinner was simple, but extremely tasty. I had picked up some Black Refried Beans at trader joes after seeing them on Itzy's Kitchen and wanted to make Grilled Quesadillas, inspired by some of Erica's creations.
I used whole wheat tortillas, courtesy of Trader Joes also.
Toppings included Black Refried Beans w/ jalapeno peppers, green chiles, sauteed red peppers and red onions, and grilled chicken.
Missing something? uh...yeah. CHEESE and lots of it. Mild 2% Cheddar to be exact.
Grilled in a little smart balance and then served with 0% Fage (to act as sour cream) for dipping.
I whipped up a Breakfast Smoothie using my Vita-Mix 5200.
- 1 banana
- 1/4 c blueberries
- 1 clementine
- 2 spoonfuls of 0% greek yogurt
- splash of skim milk
- 1 cup ice
The greek yogurt really added to the creaminess factor.
Pets on Wheels
"Pets on Wheels is a not for profit volunteer organization which provides friendly visits from volunteers and their pets to those requiring the support of an institutional setting. "
A friend of mine recently told me about the Pets on Wheels organization and I immediately said, "Where do I sign up?". I have been wanting to do something like this with Oscar for a long time.
I was just contacted this morning to schedule a screening for Oscar to ensure that he isn't an attack dog and obeys simple commands. I am so excited for the screening because Oscar and I will get to show off all the things he learned in his Puppy Kindergarten and Basic Obedience Class!
The screening will happen a month from today, so we have lots of time to practice. Oscar is pumped.
I love when his lips get stuck on his teeth.:)
