A few nights ago, Matt and I got home from a run (I know, me running? I can’t believe I just typed that!) and we were craving something nutritious, yet still comforting and filling for dinner. With two luscious sweet potatoes on the counter and a pantry full of quinoa , the choice was simple. A protein and healthy carb-filled meal. Quinoa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.
Before I talk about the food, I just need to quickly talk about motivation (or the lack there of in this case), particularly in the exercise department. Monday and Tuesday of this week Matt and I went running, only a short 25 minute runs, but it was better than nothing I suppose. But I just can’t seem to push myself to exercise every day. In the summer it’s easy, I can go for a walk outside, it’s light and bright out when I get done with work. But during the winter months, I get done with work, it’s dark, cold and snowy, and I all I want to do is go home and bake.
What’s up with that? Does anyone else feel my pain? If so, please leave a comment below (like pretty please) and tell me what you do to stay motivated. Or better yet, send me your workouts so I can get some inspiration from you. I need something to get me out of this wintertime slump. I promised myself a yoga class tomorrow!
