A Free Day

Happy Tuesday!

Are you one of the lucky ones waking up to snow flurries this morning? I am super jealous if you are…although, most likely if you did wake up to flurries this morning you aren’t feeling too excited. You probably live somewhere where it snows often!

Want to know my favorite kind of Monday?

A Monday where I’m off of work!

What a great way to start the week with a day of mental rest. Love it! I started the morning off with a great workout at my local YMCA. Monday morning bootcamp (X-Train) is my favorite class. It’s always different – which keeps it interesting. Yesterday’s workout:

Our leader explained that we were literally “chipping away” at the huge numbers she was challenging us with. Obviously the entire workout was challenging, but darn those glute bridges were tough!! My booty was burning.

We started our workout with a mile run, and I’m so happy there wasn’t more running. My legs were tired after the Zumba-thon.

After my workout I came home and made a yummy breakfast:

Silver Hills Bakery Gluten Free bread topped with Greek Yogurt, Tomato, Avocado, Scallion, Bacon, and an Over-Easy Egg

My favorite breakfast! It’s a delicious combo, and it keeps me full for hours. Win – Win.

I had a busy day of laundry, cleaning, and grocery shopping, but it was nice to get everything squared away before a busy work week and weekend. I had a little bit of extra time in the afternoon, so I splurged on dinner!

Ahh Bibimbap. SO. DARN. GOOD!

Honestly I would eat Bibimbap everyday if it didn’t take so much prep work. I wish I could find a way to make the process easier, but at the same time, it’s delicious, so why mess with a good thing?

Oh the crispy rice.

The crispy rice is so good! And the bulgogi beef…

the beef is SO GOOD!

Once again, I used the recipe HERE from Bon Appetit. I only prepared the zucchini and carrots from the recipe. Bok Choy and mushrooms were my own addition. You could honestly just add in any veggies that you like – top it with an egg – it’ll be yummy!
