While my mom and I waited for the boys to get home, we sat on the back porch playing Scrabble and relaxing. It was a nice afternoon to just SIT. I go, go, go, go all the time. Every weekend is booked and planned with workouts, bike rides, hiking, stuff with friends. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice having a busy social life. But it wasn’t until I sat outside for an extended period of time on Saturday doing NOTHING that I realized how busy I really am.
We’d had a great time at the Markets. I did a lot of walking all day and my feet were tired. I wasn’t feeling any after-effects from Saturday morning’s Brick workout beyond my feet being tired, so that was a good sign!
Around dinner time, I prepped the food for the BBQ on Saturday night. When Michael and my dad got home, everything was ready to make!
Michael made Turkey Burgers and I grilled the asparagus. It was the first time I’d ever used the grill on my own and at first it was a tad scary but I think the asparagus turned out great.
I had a slice of Havarti cheese on my burger. So tasty! We did not need fries or chips with dinner at all. The raw carrots and BBQ’ed asparagus were crunchy enough as a side.
Dessert was some organic, fresh cantaloupe that was the sweetest fruit I’ve tasted in a long time.
It was a really fun evening and my parents enjoyed the food, so that’s great. I showed them how to use the Foam Roller and explained what it does. I think my mom wants to get one now. 😉 I crawled into bed at 10pm and I don’t remember falling asleep!
I somehow also ended the night with over 700 calories left! I had had a great day food-wise and with all the snacking I did at the Farmer’s Market, I didn’t feel like I was hungry at all during the day!
