I've been killing myself at the gym these past couple of weeks.
Like... I just tried to cross my ankles, while sitting here blogging, and I flinched because my legs are so sore from an intense weight lifting routine I did yesterday with my BF. lol
I'm SO an all or nothing person. Hence the reason I've totally fallen off the wagon and gained way too much weight back. I just wanted to enjoy ALL the bad foods these past few months - didn't want to leave any, one thing out of the crappy food feeding frenzy.
ughhhhh... no good Shelley, no good.
So, in an effort to make up for a loaded handful of bad months, I'm trying to kick my butt back into gear, and eating healthier is the BIGGEST challenge for me.
It takes SO MUCH time and effort and doesn't come naturally to me. I KNOW it was a habit a few years ago when I dropped a bunch of weight, but freak, I need to retrain myself!
So... I thought I'd share my new favorite side dish that my best friend Kathryn and I have tweaked and modified from a couple of other recipes. We call it, the Colorful Quinoa Salad.
It's packed full of yummy veggies, awesome flavor, and has a spicy kick to it too.
