My Fairy Tale Life

Hola friends!

I am tuckered out! I didn’t feel like running after work today so I came home and let Jillian beat me up a little…aka, I shredded! 20 minutes at Level 1 and my arms were shaking, my breathing was labored and I was a schhhhweaty lady. Ben laid on the couch, watched and commented when I wasn’t squatting low enough, punching hard enough, etc. I politely not so politely told him to join me…or can it. He canned it :)

I wasn’t very hungry when I was done, so I opted for a lighter dinner tonight: Lemon Pasta with Chicken. Perhaps you may remember this sweetie from my brush with the 101 Simple Salad Challenge?

How much tv do you watch??

I really like Fall television. Actually, one of my favorite things to do is snuggle with Ben in a big blanket and catch up on “our shows.” It’s dark out anyways, so I feel like I’m not wasting valuable time or weather by sitting indoors…know what I mean, bean?

Isn’t personal taste funny? I loved hearing what you guys “won’t even eat roasted” last night. Do you think taste is nature or nurture? I think it’s a little of both. I happen to hate cooked carrots because I was forced to finish my pot roast dinners when I was…
