MAKE THIS.  Dinner last night was curried coconut quinoa with greens and roasted cauliflower. This is not my picture (because the entire pot is in my belly).  This was our first time cooking with coconut oil. It was hard not to spoon big globs of the stuff into my mouth hole. 

Recipe edits for next time (because there will be a next time): Use olive oil instead of coconut oil to roast the cauliflower florets. They’ll brown/crisp up faster (because coconut oil has a lower smoke point). Also, nix the raisins (because who really likes raisins?). 

Today is my “Friday.”  I can feel the light at the end of the tunnel on my skin. Have a good one!

•Monday’s WOD: bench press, decline bench press, flies, eliptical. (No, I did not work out for 2 hours and 40 mins. Haha! I forgot to turn my HRM off).

•Essie’s All That Metals. Can’t stop looking at my nails! 😍

•Sometimes Mani plays the pug spa/massage music when he gives her belly rubs. We think she’s into it.

•Work is so so busy this week. Too many interrogatories drafted. Too many minutes spent on the phone with outside attorneys having various levels of competency. Send halp. HALP.

•So so ready to road trip this weekend. We’re headed to Enchanted Rock for hiking and wine and bluebonnets. Gimme gimme gimme.

Scenes from our Pacquiao fight viewing party on Saturday. We made pancit (Filipino lo mein) and Filipino-style BBQ (marinade = soy sauce, onion, garlic, sweet & sour sauce, ketchup and brown sugar). My mom made rice cake. My sister-in-law and her family brought even more food.

Pacquiao won. Much sodium and refined sugar were consumed. We somehow managed to find seating for 15 people in our little townhome. Good times were had all around.

Foto of last night’s lunar eclipse: the “blood moon” in the bottom left and Mars in the upper right. Mars was the closest it’s been to Earth since 2008. Moon, sun and Earth alligned. Earth, Mars and Spica alligned. The moon eclipsed Jupiter. It was a wild and crazy night for stargazing. Thank you, Sky Guide app. 

Due to some freak cold front, it was 40 degrees in TEXAS last night. We were the only weirdos standing in the middle of the park at 2 a.m. in PJ’s and several layers of clothing, shivering, and drinking Sleepytime tea to stay warm. But it was worth it. 

SCIENCE.

Last night’s WOD: tricep extensions, lat pulldowns, planks, oblique dumbbell side bends, and eliptical.

Today’s WOD: strength training class.

Bonus: check out my sweet new lifting gloves. $7.99 at Homegoods, baby!

So much cooking to do for the Pacquiao fight tonight. I fully plan on grubbing hard. Have a good weekend!
