Back to Boot Camp

8 Jan

Boot camp started back yesterday, but I didn’t go. I was “recovering” from my eight mile run on Sunday. But actually, I was just too much of a wuss to go. Last time I tried to go to boot camp after running a long run my legs just refused to work. But I made it this morning! Despite waking up several times in the night to stop my dog from howling at the partying neighbors, I made it to the 5:30 outdoor workout. (I can’t be mad about the partying. A certain very awesome football team won a certain very important game last night!)

I had the morning off from work, so I came back after boot camp and slept/snuggled Henry/watched last night’s Bachelor episode for the next three hours. I forgot what a time commitment the Bachelor is! Well worth it in my book.

My plan was to go on a run before going into work this afternoon, but I couldn’t get my silly iPhone to sync up with iTunes, and I couldn’t find my iPod. So instead of just going for a run, I played with all of that mess for around an hour. Unsuccessfully. I got so worked up and frustrated that I just decided to forget it and cook up a delicious spaghetti squash lunch instead. I didn’t take a picture because it didn’t actually look very good.

Before cooking, I googled “Why is my spaghetti squash always watery?” (I like to make my google searches very specific like that. There is almost always someone who has had the same problem and posted a solution on the internet.) I learned two things about cooking spaghetti squash:

1) if it’s always soggy, you may be cooking it too long (guilty)

2) if you are adding sauce, make sure the sauce is room temperature or cool so that it does not continue to cook the squash, which causes the squash to release water.

I’ve always done the opposite of both of those things. I thought that cooking it more would cause the water to evaporate, but I tried these two tips and ended up with the perfect squash! I topped with some roasted vegetables and an avocado/nutritional yeast sauce. All in all a delicious lunch!

Since I don’t have a picture of lunch, here is a picture of the cute tea bag that I made ginger/mango tea with!


A sample of teas came in my PopSugar Must Have Box. I’m just now getting around to trying them. I’m partial to Republic of Tea teas, but these are delicious! I had white ginger pear, and it was super yummy.*
