Hi everyone! Hope you’re all having a great day so far 🙂
Last night I was in the mood to cook again (who is this person? ;)), and ever since seeing the fajitas Kjirsten made over the weekend, I haven’t been able to get them out of my head! So I finally made it happen and my cravings were definitely satisfied…
I made the fajitas by just slicing up 3 chicken breasts and sauteed it in a pan with 1 tbsp. olive until browned and no longer pink in the middle. Then I sliced up 2 bell peppers and half of one large onion and sauteed in a pan with 1 tbsp. of olive until crisp tender. Once that was done I placed the meat back in the pan with the veggies and added 1 packet of McCormick Fajita Seasoning Mix and 1/4 cup water, stir, and you got deliciously flavored fajitas…
For awhile now I’ve been meaning to tell you all about a few goodies I found at Whole Foods a couple weeks ago. The Kettlecorn is out of this world good…and dangerous to keep in the household since this sweet tooth monster killed the bag in a couple days 😉
And this cereal was a new to me one from Kashi, and though I do love the “Go Lean” varieties more, this was a nice change to the cereal rotation…
I’ve been enjoying it for my early morning breakfasts with some Kashi Go Lean mixed in as well…
The Go Lean can be kinda of bland so I love pairing it with a sweeter cereal in giving the perfect amount of sweetness and variety to the taste buds 🙂
Yesterday when I was at the gym I came across a trainer who helped me during my disordered eating/over exercising days, and she did something that both shocked me and made me so happy. She took my hand and said with the most genuine smile and caring eyes, “you look so beautiful and happy, and I just want to say I very proud I am of you.” It absolutely made my day.
I haven’t talked much about this lately, but I admit that ever since we’ve been trying for a baby and have been diagnosed with HA (Hypothalamic Amenorrhea), there have been many hard days. I’ve put on about 5 more pounds (it’s the heaviest I’ve weighed since high school and I’m still getting used to this body I haven’t seen in 10 years); I’ve quit the majority of my favorite Spin and Vipr classes (I’ve really been missing the energy and camaraderie of my fellow gym buddies and instructors and some days it makes me sad – almost every other day someone comes up to me and asks where I’ve been); and everyday I question what’s going on with my body and why it’s not doing what it’s meant to be doing. There are days I’m angry and frustrated with it and I just want to scream, and days where I remind myself to be calm and be happy with how great my life is in this moment. And what she said solidified that for me. That I have to be happy in this moment, and to remember how far I’ve come since those dark days of my disordered ways…it was strong enough to overcome that, and it will be strong enough to give us our miracle – I just have to trust it, give it time, be patient, and live in the moment.
I hope you all have a fantastic Thursday and though I skipped last week’s Friday Lovin’ I promise to have one for you all tomorrow! 🙂
Have you had a time where you’ve had to stop and remind yourself to “live in the moment”?
What compliment have you been given that made your day?
Do you like fajitas? If not, what’s your favorite Mexican inspired dish?
