Happy Monday folks!
How was week one for you? I had a client check in with me today with a weekly log of her workouts she did outside of our regular sessions last week and this made me SUPER excited. We struggled to find something that worked with her schedule to move outside of the studio because LIFE people. It can be challenging and it took a bit of planning on her part and sticking with it, even when it seemed there was no time and she just didn’t feel like it, she did it. She was proud, I was proud and I could sense her feeling of accomplishment.
What were your challenges and success last week? Did you clean out your kitchen? Did you move your body and enjoy the great weather? Maybe you did, maybe it was a rough week. That is okay too. Take a few moments to write down what worked and what didn’t and make adjustments for this week. You didn’t fail. Each day is a new start. Each day you learn something new about yourself when you are trying to break bad habits and start healthier ones. I got PISSED when I didn’t have any chocolate in the house. Like really mad. It is silly but true. Then Dan pointed out that there were chocolate chips in the cabinet. I got so excited! I ate too many and then felt worse than I had before. I have very little control if something yummy is in front of me and I think a lot of people can relate to this. Instead of that happening again, I am going to make some healthier version of muffins and snacks that I feel satisfied snacking on and don’t feel the need to overindulge.
Now, I know I send you something with lentil last week but this was a super easy dinner that apparently hit the spot with Dan because he wouldn’t stop talking about it. He loved the flavors and it’s simplicity.
This recipe here in made in the instant pot. People, you all know I rave about this thing. I love it. It makes life so much easier. Totally worth it and I plan to make a video on me using the instant pot in case you are terrified of the idea of pressure cooking. Pressure cooking takes the pressure off of cooking I say! I am not affiliated with them, I just swear by it.
I made a few changes. I didn’t add kale because I didn’t have any. I had some Trader Joe’s frozen green beans. I seared them on the stove with salt and pepper. I also made the jasmine rice in the instant pot. I made extra so I have some for the week. It is a life savor folks. So there it is. A quick and easy healthy dinner!
Dig in and enjoy!
