Awesome weekend and green inspiration

This weekend was amazing! Not because I did anything special in particular, but because I was an exercise phenom! Nutrition could have definitely been better but working on them baby steps, right?

Got off of work and when I got home, the boyfriend was just about to leave for his job so I quickly got changed into my workout clothes and went with him...  not to work but to walk/jog home.  He works about 4 miles away from our condo so it's a decent route.  By the time I got back home, the sky was looking like this:
A.M.A.Z.I.N.G, right?!

Started the day kinda early (for a Saturday anyway).  We still have several weeks of doggie school left for Beans so Anthony leaves our place around 8 am.

Instead of catching a ride with him and walking around the park while class is going on, I leave our place about 15 - 20 minutes after him with our other dog, Poki.  The park is a good two or three miles away from our condo so again, a decent walk, but Poki and I usually take the scenic route which will take us about an hour and a half to walk/jog.

Got up early again to take the girls on a hike but forgot that Sunday's are hunting days in our mountains.  Packs of hunting dogs and wild boar running around on the hiking trails isn't something we wanted to deal with so instead, we went for another walk.  This time a six miler that took us to the beach.  It was blazing hot but another good workout! Got home in time to wash the dogs, shampoo the carpets, scrub the bathroom and do three loads of laundry!

Hopefully I can get the exercise routine down again and slowly work in more cardio and weight sessions.  I have been lifting weights about two times a week but want to increase that to three or four split routines.  BABY STEPS!!

Remember last month I posted about some green inspiration I was hoping would help me eat from my kitchen instead of out of a take-out container?  Well look how much it's grown in about a month!!

And 'after' includes cutting and using the herbs several times a week!

The herbs are doing awesome... almost to point that I can't use them in time but that's nothing to complain about.  I've used them in sauces, quiches, soups, breads, eggs, meats, salads... almost everything!  And we have our first chili pepper coming up.  We only have one but I can't wait to use it.
