Despite me moving in slow motion all day, I was able to get to the gym AND make a yummy dinner tonight. *Pat on the back!*
But first, can we start with something I’m struggling with at my gym?! Go with me for a few.
I work out at a wonderful all women gym. The facility is awesome. So clean. Great instructors. Tons of classes. Lots of amenities. TWO THUMBS UP, right?
However, my gym has two distinct personalities.
1. Awesome Has Everything I Could Ever Need Gym.
Then there is #2…
2. Naked Lady Gym
Look. I get that we are proud of bodies. Yay women. Hear us roar! But is it absolutely necessary for me to be greeted by a naked woman in every corner of my gym? Today took the cake though.
I went into the steam room. Took a seat, with a towel wrapped tightly around me, and started to enjoy my steam. Ahhhh…doesn’t it just sound relaxing?!
A few minutes later the door opens and in walks a woman in nothin’ but her thongs (as my mother calls them. Flip flops to others. hehe) and a towel. It isn’t just any towel though. It is one of the FACE towels that the gym provides. I can’t help but think to myself, “What is the purpose of that towel? Is that supposed to cover something? Why is she using the face towel on her body parts?!” If that wasn’t enough, it gets better. She sits down next to me and then LAYS down. Legs up, head down.
Seriously. It was too much for me. I felt the urge to yell “hey naked lady! Keep your junk to yourself!”, but instead I just gathered myself up and got the heck out of dodge.
So my question to you folks is…am I making a bigger deal out of this than I should be? Am I being dramatic?! There is serious potential for me being too dramatic about this so I throw this out for you to weigh in. Don’t worry. I’m not leaving my gym over this, but I may throw a dirty look or two. Kidding…kind of.
While you mull that over, let me share with you what I made for dinner.
In the mix (Serves 2):
-1/2 cup black beans, rinsed
-1 sweet potato
-1/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
-green onion, chopped
*Wash sweet potato and pierce with knife. Heat in microwave for 3 minutes.
*Slice up potato and mix with chopped green onion and black beans.
*In food processor, mix potato, onion and beans to get a smooth mixture.
*In a separate bowl, mix the bean mixture with the bread crumbs. Use those hands!
*Create 9 patties with the mixture.
*In a pan sprayed with PAM, cook patties 1-2 minutes on each side over med-high heat.
I served my patties (3) with a little salsa verde and some steamed green beans with a little Garlic Garlic sprinkled over it. How did this meal get so good so quickly?!
These little babies are definitely going into the AGAHM dinner rotation!
