Too soon for hot chocolate?

Nah, I don’t think so!  It was a mini cup, which actually makes my hand look like a giant’s hand, but I digress. As I said yesterday it was raining, and although it wasn’t actually cold outside, it looked cold so I told myself it was ok to have hot chocolate. And I’m glad I did because it was very tasty.

Other than being on a crazy chocolate kick recently, I am totally obsessed with Edamame .. especially the frozen kind from Trader Joe’s:

I ate about a third of the entire bag today:


And to be completely honest, if I had taken the entire bag to work I would have finished it, thank goodness for Ziploc baggies. This was the perfect mid-morning snack. When I got home from work, I had ever intention of doing Day 8 of my Jillian Michaels “Making the Cut” workout, but when I looked at the first move in the circuit I realized.. hmmm. this might not be for me right now:

Somehow I just don’t think this is physically possible for me to do right now.  I used to be able to do it…. but no thanks, I won’t even attempt it.  I think I will have to stick to the leg workouts in this book until after my surgery and 4 month recovery (BARF).

So instead of working out after work, I sat my but on the couch, had a teaspoon of peanut butter, and watched Cupcake Wars… Has anyone ever even heard of this show?! It is amazing. haha. I love food shows, and this one takes the cake.. haha get it? sorry…. Last night’s episode each team had to make a cupcake out of three different dishes, Shrimp gumbo, pulled pork with mashed potatoes and gravy,  and another dish I can’t remember.  I couldn’t even imagine of making a cupcake with pulled pork and mashed potatoes.. but they looked pretty darn tasty… I heart you Food Network!  I don’t think there is one show on that channel that isn’t amazing.

When Erik got home, we headed over to his parents house for dinner.  His dad made a really yummy German dish.

Please do not ask me what it was called because I have no idea… It was ham, sauerkraut, and German potatoes.  So good.  This picture is what was packed in Erik’s lunch for today, I forgot to take a pictures last night. German food isn’t exactly the prettiest food, but it sure is tasty!

We got back home pretty late last night, so we let Ella sleep in our room on her bed.  Thankfully she slept in her bed until about 5am-ish… when I woke up and she was whimpering like a baby (seriously it was so cute) in the middle of our bed.  She was definitely having a nightmare, poor baby.  AHH I just love her so much haha.  I obviously chose to sleep in again, instead of going to the gym.  My shoulder has really been bothering me all week, and I don’t really want to make it any worse. But I did start my morning off with a delish cereal combo with blueberries and 1/2 a banana…

I hope everyone has a great day!

    There is no such thing as too soon for hot chocolate. I add it to my coffee year round – it’s so good!! I had the best edamame salad the other day, but I ran out… better get to trader joes! That stuff is so good!
