Busy, busy Tuesday

Today was a busy day. Work went well and kept me busy all day. I left to go to the gym afterwards. I had to force myself to go. I was not in the mood to go anywhere, but home. I was just feeling like a home body today. But, I had things I needed to do before I could go home.

At the gym, I spent 30 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes on my arms. Usually, I spend another 30 minutes on my abs. But, ever since this weekend, my back has been hurting. I had my hubby take a look and he said I have 5 little red dots where it hurts. It seems to be getting better, I just didn't want to bring on the pain. I wasn't in the mood.

I left the gym a half hour early and went grocery shopping. It was so busy there. Again, something else I wasn't in the mood for. Oh well, it needed to be done. I was in and out in 45 minutes (I think that may be a new record for me).

When I got home and put things away and showered, I heated up dinner that I made yesterday. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out. It was Pantry Pasta. It was super easy to make. Which is always a good thing.

Here's the sauce simmering for 45 minutes while I did other things in the kitchen. Good thing I had a lot of energy last night (because I sure don't tonight).

I tossed the sauce with whole wheat pasta. It was ok to eat. I'm just glad I made it ahead of time!

Last night, I did sneak a brownie. They are so good. It tasted like the boxed brownies (which I love the flavor). But, this was home made and I know exactly what is in them. I love that! If you like brownies, these are a must make!! I knew I could count on the Brown Eyed Baker!


  1. At first I thought that was avocado in the pasta sauce, but it actually is broccoli I'm guessing.

  2. 5 black dots? Where they aligned on a rib or on the spine? If so they could be shingles? You should take that seriously.

  3. Awesome job getting to the gym after a tough day. And UGH to the busy grocery store!!
