His and Her's

Recap of last nights dinner. Hubby and I were in to mood for some warm and comfy bowls of soup. So we had some His and Her's soup. I had my butternut squash soup I had picked up at the store, but we were all out of Hubby's fave, tomato soup. I knew I could make it from scratch, how hard could it be? So I found a simple recipe and improvised. I used a can of tomato sauce, 1/2 cup of skim milk,basil,garlic, oregano, and some parmesan cheese. Hubby said it tasted just like the can:) Well I shall never buy tomato soup again! I had a salad with some sourdough bread with my soup. I made Hubby 2 grilled cheese sandwiches, he is easy to please!

The hubby and I woke up exhausted this morning. We both tossed and turned all night. I felt like I had restless leg syndrome, from my hips down I was in some uncomfortable pain. Hubby was sore too, from all the softball he played this weekend. We are both in desperate need of massages! I could have woke up at 5 this morning but I knew I had a long day ahead of me so I snoozed till 6. When I got up I felt better. I am going to do some Yoga and deep stretching before I head out to work. I was going to make some homemade granola this morning , but I was out of Old fashion OATS, I only had my Coach's Oats. So I guess I ll have to run to the store today and make them tomorrow.

After we got out of bed look who decided to take over!!

I made a great big bowl of Pumpkin Oats this morning, inspired by Kath. I think this was my best bowl yet.

1/2 cup Coaches oats
1/2 cup vanilla hemp milk
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup pumpkin
1/2 banana(which I have never put in my pumpkin oats)
handful of sliced almonds
handful of flax
handful of granola
honey drizzled on top

I loved the texture I think the banana helped.

Well I am going to do some Yoga, have a nice long quiet time, and enjoy the rest of my morning. I hope I make it through kickboxing tonight my body's feeling pretty beet up today. Have a beautiful day everyone.

Oh and I have a question for you all, what is one thing you love about blogging and why?

I think for me it has been great to have a community of people that have similar passions as me. I also get inspired by reading other blogs, to eat healthier, work out harder, and just be a better person all around! I also love writing about things that I love and helping others become inspired as well.

P.S. Hubby just told me that yesterdays Tri was an 11 mile bike ride and the last Tri I did was only a 9 mile bike ride, so I did do better!!!

WOW! I'm amazed at your athletic prowess! You're a star. I hope you guys DO get massages.
How cool that you made your own soup!
My favorite thing about blogging is getting to know other bloggers and getting ideas from them. :)
Have a great day!

I love blogging because it helps me to share my experience and it's nice to see how others are going through their training.

Yesterday was a soup kind of day. Blogging helps keep me motivated and I feel like it holds me responsible for my workouts.

reading your blog always leaves me hungry... the food you show looks so good and that soup sounds wonderful. Now I just have to remember to read it around lunch time.

I'm falling in love with soup now that it's finally getting cold out. Maybe now I should take a swing at making my own?
