Long Workout, Quick Dinner

Phew! Hope you all had a wonderful day...this post will be quick one because I'm exhausted! After work, I got some things done around the house and took off for the gym. I taught 45 minute Body Step with my friend Kristen, took 45 minute Body Pump, and then we had Body Step practice for our upcoming launch for another hour or so. My belly was talking quite loudly on the way home, so I threw together the quickest dinner I could!! Sweet potato with white beans and salsa:



More papaya

I also consumed lots of almond butter with some crackers (un-pictured mmmm).

After reading this post about Osteoporosis from Inside I am Dancing, I remembered how important calcium is for women and that I NEED to start taking calcium supplements again. I ran out to Publix today and picked some up!


Ok time for some Twilight (did you all see the New Moon Trailer???) and bed with my boyfriend...


Have a great night- tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!!

Ya know, I've never had papaya. Do you get it at the regular grocery store?

lilveggiepatch said...

Hmmm..sweet potatoes with white beans and salsa. I take comfort in the fact that I am not the only one who concocts interesting dinner combinations :)

I need to get on the Twilight train!

Papaya. Now that's something I've yet to try. Kinda looks like Mango.

lesley said...

I bet your belly was speaking loudly after that!! Glad a sweet potato could satisfy it : )

Lauren said...

Mmm, beans, sweet potato and salsa is probably one of the best combinations ever!

I've recently started taking calcium suppliments too. I hear that women are to be getting 1500 mg of caclium a day and I am no where near that, so I try to take a multi-vitamin in the morning and then a caclium chew in the afternoon.

Bone strength is so important for us ladies!

Yay for Friday! Hope you have a wonderful day beautiful girl!

Red Head, Yellow Dog said...

you are one busy girl!!! and totally with you on the calcium thing. I'm just so bad at remembering to take it!

ps your boyfriend is hot ;)

Jessica said...

I need to work more with variations of sweet potatoes. I generally just make them for breakfast.

I can't wait for New Moon. Twilight is next in our netflix and I can't WAIT! :)

Yum, you can never go wrong with a sweet potato and salsa!! Strangely enough, papaya is the one fruit I have never tried. I will definitely try it soon! Have a great Friday:)

Allie (Live Laugh Eat) said...

All your group fitness instructing is making me jealous! Since working here, I keep thinking about how much fun it would be to teach exercise classes!

I take SOOO much calcium...it's good to see I'm not the only one!

bhealthier said...

Finsmom said...

You absolutly MUST read the last book! It is the best of them all, by far!

I admit to drawing them out a bit as well, waiting for the perfect time to sit down and read them... I didn't want to "waste" them!
