Plyoburn!!!

This morning I got to attend my absolute favorite workout class! Its called Plyoburn and it can only be found at Castle Hill Fitness in Austin. The instructor, Amid, is intense, and plays really good music for working up a sweat. Its all hip hop :). I seriously dream about this class when I am away at school. Its a mix of plyometrics, lighter weights with high reps, and cardio. And it burnssssogood.

For lunch and dinner, Courtney and I went a little stir fry crazy. She is vegetarian, almost vegan and a good cook!

For lunch, we stir fried some eggplant, red bell pepper, onions, and bok choy with a little olive oil, cumin, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. We also threw some garbanzos in there. I wanted some carbz so I shoved the veggies to the side and stir fried 1/3 cup rolled oats with a bit more oil. To serve, I mixed it all together (…with a blob of almond butter).

After a day of shopping with zero successes, we decided to drop by HEB for groceries. HEB is a Texas grocery store chain and it is awesome. It is huge and has everything. But its not organic… it just as an organic section. Great prices though!

For dinner, we prepared red lentils by boiling them for 45 minutes and quinoa for 15 minutes. Then we stir fried some broccoli, egg plant, red bell pepper, onions, and bok choy with a little olive oil. To serve, we mixed it all together with Soyvay Teriyaki sauce. And I may have added a blob of almond butter to the quinoa… Delicious!

Get excited because tomorrow is Sweet Potato-Pecan-Quinoa Tamales!! I know I am.

PS… I miss Pace.
