The Couch is my Friend

by Meghann on July 21, 2010

Fun fact: I started writing this post from the bottom up. πŸ˜‰

Do you ever have one of those days when you walk through the door and you think to yourself “Thank God I’m home”? Today was one of those days. I swear my couch never looked as glorious as it did this evening.

Here’s one of my dirty little secrets: I only work out in the morning, so I can come home after work and turn into a couch potato without any guilt. The couch just calls my name after a long day! Well, the couch and my DVR. You can’t forget the DVR. πŸ˜‰

Before leaving work I had a Peanut Butter Kashi Bar.

Dinner was inspired by Tina and her recent admiration for buffalo tofu.

The tofu was nothing fancy. After pressing the tofu I marinated it in some buffalo sauce then baked it at 420 for 20 minutes, flipped it, and baked for 20 more.

Underneath the tofu was where all the magic lived. πŸ˜‰

I made a chopped veggie salad of sorts with broccoli, olives, roasted red pepper, artichoke hears, rolled dates, mushrooms, and a drizzle of vinegar. The blue cheese on top really pulled everything together. It kind of reminded me of buffalo chicken wings with blue cheese dressing. An old favorite I haven’t had in ages. You can’t go wrong with blue cheese and buffalo sauce. πŸ™‚

There’s always a big debate at every table on what goes better with chicken wings: ranch or blue cheese dressing. I’ve always been a big fan of blue cheese, but I know there are ranch fans out there too. What about you? Ranch or Blue Cheese? You can only choose one! πŸ˜‰

A tiny assortment of chocolate, cereal, and strawberries satisfied my sweet tooth for dessert.

I still have a solid hour of quality time to spend with my couch before bed. I better make the most of it!

Good night! πŸ™‚

Well, did I have a fun morning. Let’s just say the rumor mill was flying like crazy around here and I was pulled into an hour and a half meeting to try and separate fact from fiction. Office drama is so much fun. πŸ˜‰ The impromptu meeting took me through snack time and right into more Β»

July 21, 2010

My gym changed the class schedule up on me this morning. Well technically they changed it on July 11th, but whose paying attention to that little detail? Instead of the Back2Back Body Power & Cycling session I was expecting I got Back2Back Group Active & Cycling. Now, I’ve never tried Group Active before, so I more Β»
