Last night as we were falling asleep Meeker turned to me and said: Do you want to come to the gym with me early tomorrow morning so I can run you through a workout? Uh…heck yes. I love having a personal trainer husband.

So this morning, I started off with some water and a snack before we hit the gym.

Usually this is my favorite snack on earth, but I just wasn’t feeling it this morning. I ate the dried apples, and left the walnuts. At the gym, Meeker put me through a fun strength workout which involved me balancing on a lot of exercise and bosu balls. I looked like a bowl of jello for most of the hour as I tried to maintain my balance. I’m just glad it was early morning and there weren’t many people around to stare at me. I left with a tired body – which is the point, I suppose.

I came home and was craving one thing – a smoothie. However, we had not one piece of fruit in the house, so I improvised.

Carrot, blueberry POM, and ginger slushie.

I’ll be the first to admit that this was weird. I blended one carrot, about a ¼ inch of grated ginger, and ¼ cup POM juice, then poured it into my slushie maker. It was alright…not great, but alright. After this I went to the grocery store to remedy the no fruit situation.

looked like this:

Last night’s leftovers + cherries

These cherries were so good…I had a few more handfuls throughout the afternoon.

Dinner looked like this:

Grilled green beans and corn + chicken meatballs

I made a soy sauce glaze to put on the meatballs and green beans by pouring soy sauce + mustard into the empty meatball pan and simmering it for a few minutes. It was a little salty for my liking, but it deglazed the pan nicely – which meant less pan-scrubbing after dinner.

Corn was 5 ears/$1 at the grocery store this week, so prepare to see a lot of this…

I just throw it on a hot grill…no oil, no salt, just corn. Mmm, lick.

And with that, I’m off to enjoy some dessert. Happy Tuesday, all.
