Happy Tuesday bloggies! I am REALLY starting to like my Tuesdays and Thursdays? Why? Because I have PT sessions at 1:00p.m. Even though they hurt like HELL (yes hell…no exaggeration) I like being able to physically feel my progress. It gives me hope. While my groin does feel a lot better my knee is still pulling pretty badly. But that’s okay. I am REFUSING to be in bad mood. REFUSING! I am taking it day by day and today I am just going to focus my therapy session! 🙂
I did have a good workout this morning. I ellipticaled 10 miles. WOWERS! It was tough, kind of fun, and a little gratifying! hehe! The things that make me happy…I bet if you polled most people ellipticalling 10 miles wouldn’t be on the top of the list! What can I say…I am a freak! But I am okay with it…truly I am. Thanks for everyone who is giving me encouragement on my “no run” gag order. I am definitely finding new things to do! I am currently contemplating this beauty: The AquaJogger.
What are your thoughts on the AquaJogger?
Yesterday, Tina asked what our Monday mini goals were. Mine is to CLEAN MY HOUSE! I know this sounds easy but really there is nothing I HATE more than cleaning. But I figured if I broke it up everyday then by Friday I would have a completely clean house. So yesterday…I cleaned (scrubbed) my kitchen and mopped. So here’s the thing: NOTE TO HOME BUILDERS: Putting in a stark white tile floor in the kitchen is not cool. Not cool at all. Okay I feel a lot better!
What is your least favorite cleaning job to do?
Lastly, I made another rendition of my steel-cut oats. I usually make a big batch once a week for Keith and I to eat on all week. This week’s edition was apple pie steel cuts!
APPLE PIE STEEL CUT OATS
1 cup steel-cut oats
4 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup brown sugar, not packed
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1 Tbsp. apple pie spice
1 apple, chopped
Add everything, except apple, into crockpot. Cook on High for 4-5 hours, stirring often. Once finished stir in chopped fresh apple and tada…apple pie oats! Makes: 6 cups (Keith and I usually get 8 servings out of this)
