A Small Little Frustrating Update

This week flew by...seriously I think I blinked and it was already Friday.  I'm assuming that is because I have been busy at work and boyishly obsessed with the new Call of Duty DLC...ugh I'm so embarrassed that I even know what DLC means...(downloadable content).  Good thing I wear dresses and makeup almost everyday...

Anyways...I did meal prep a pretty awesome dish this week and ended up going to the gym...once.  Considering the fact that I am still nursing my back...I'm counting that as a successful week.

I'm going to first start with this awesome meal that I used to make all the time and brought it back to life this week! It's SO easy...and doesn't include avocado...I'm just as surprised as you are...

There is no recipe because I am famous for just throwing random shit together and calling it a meal.  I once ate this couscous salad thingy and that is what inspired me to create this delish clean meal.  So basically it's just grilled chicken served with couscous that has cucumbers, tomatoes and red onion in it...topped with feta. I put a Mediterranean sea salt seasoning blend on my chicken and it turned out amazingly good.  As for the couscous...if you want to get a little dirty with it...add a little Italian dressing to it for flavor.  To be honest I did that this week and it was so good.  You can eat it warm or cold...leftovers out of the fridge taste on point!  I ate this all week and even served it to my friend who also loved it.  Quick and easy...just how I like it.

Clean or's goooood

I know I know...going to the gym 1 day a week will not help my weightloss efforts. I'm aware of that.  I am basically going just to keep my motivation and have some fun.  I love zumba and lately I haven't been obsessing over it. I'm hoping that if I keep going every week I will get my obsession back.  And anyways...1 workout is better than 0, am I right?

Wednesday Zumba
I'm not going to hide it...after/during zumba my back hurts.  A lot.  It's sore and awful.  However, it's a sore that I'm used to by now and I just need to keep resting it.  I am really anxious for the weather to get nicer so I can start going on walks after work.  It seems like I am in a gym rut and I need to do alternative outside walking.  I am really itching to do some outside exercising!!! Maybe it's all this dumb snow but it really has me counting down the days until Spring! I miss my 5-6 mile walks!! And no...don't even say it...I don't want to do it on a treadmill. It's not the same :)


  1. Back pain is no joke! Hope it goes away. Take care of yourself and have a wonderful weekend. I'm with you on the fact that 1 workout is better than nothing :)

  2. It's been a while since you posted. I hope all is ok. Post and let us all know how things are going. Oh and by the way, going to the gym only once just to keep motivated while you are nursing a hurt back is all good. Your back is more important than worrying about how many calories you burned in Zumba or on the treadmill! Take care and hope to hear from you again soon.
