we went on a retreat with Christian faculty from the naval academy over the week end. such a blessing to spend time with those folks. i am so encouraged to just know that they are there... where i will be living soon! we also picked out our wedding bands. beautiful!! i can't wait to put it on!
week ends are hard, especially because with traveling so much jeff and i do a lot of "vacation eating"!!
but, the week is better. last night i made de.lic.ious coconut encrusted chicken and shrimp from mark (i just made the shrimp the same way as the chicken). i ate the chicken on a salad for lunch and it was so.good!! and, i snacked on the shrimp throughout the day. such a wonderful alternative to fried breaded coconut shrimp!!
kristen and lindsey came over for dinner and i made this yummy shrimp and broccoli with onions. but, i just used olive oil, fresh garlic, lemon pepper and a bit of sea salt instead of the suggested spices. it was great!! for "dessert" i made these super easy microwave baked apples with blueberries. they were very good! but... i mean... who wouldn't rather have something full of butter or covered in chocolate?! i hope that someday i will choose baked apples over brownies because it's just what i want and not what i know i should do....
kristen and i got our booties to the gym this morning and after a torturous ab workout we did sprints on the bike. 2 minutes warm.up then 10 sets of 30 seconds sprint and 1:00 easier (but not easy!). i did a pretty tough resistance and i was wiped afterwards!!
thanks for reading :)
