So, today was the second day of my Couch to 5K Challenge.
It went good! It was a busy day of work, temple, meeting,
and finally the gym, but it felt so good to be in the gym again.
If found myself wanting to do more, but I held back and still
felt like I got a really good workout, if the sweat rolling off
my face was any indication.
Also, on a side note...here are a few healthy recipes I tried
that I found off of Pinterest. First up, THIS JEWEL...

I'll admit, I was a little nervous to try this recipe, I have never loved
sweet potatoes unless they're drowning in butter and sugar, but I threw
a sweet potato in the oven before I left for the gym. I hurried
home, and made the black bean salad, which seriously takes
5 minutes and I happened to have EVERYTHING on hand. win/win.
I absolutely loved this meal! It was super good, super nutritious, and
the flavors went really well together. I already can't wait until tomorrow
until I can make it again.
On to the next...
THIS meal happened to be disgusting.

I am not one to shy away from trying weird healthy substitution
things. For example, Spaghetti made out of Spaghetti squash is a
WINNER. Delicious! Cauliflower Pizza, though, not so much.
It had a weird texture, it fell apart easily, and it has a hard time cooking
all the way through to the middle. The outside crust wasn't to bad, but a few bites
in the middle and it was about all I could take. I had a lot left over when James
came home from work and he wouldn't even touch it. But, there are a
TON of comments on the website where this recipe is from and lots of people
loved it. So we maybe the weird ones, but I kind of doubt it. haha
Anyway, if I try anything else that's good, I'll let you know.
Well folks, that's all for now!
Wow, blogging to the world is a great way to hold myself accountable!
If anybody has any great recipes for healthy foods, I'd love to hear them!
