Training is going great, except the little set back of an ear infection and then getting sick over the weekend. Although, I knew that meant my body was telling me to take a break! My life lately has been go, go, go....you know the thing when you think you are Superwoman and can do everything? When you say yes to EVERYONE! It made me re-think some things when I was at dinner and didn't feel well and kind of almost passed out at the restaurant that I had to slow down and maybe NOT say yes to every one of my friends and family when they ask me to go somewhere or do something. I needed to prioritize and cleanse. So this weekend, Mike and I cleaned the house and I have to say this made me feel soooo much better :)
Anyway, I tweeted and facebooked all these great foods I was having over the last couple weeks so I thought I would share a couple of them. They both just happen to be Mexican-like dishes. I am obsessed with anything Mexican. Both of these dishes were great and can be used for multiple meals so it's perfect to prep on a Sunday and gives you less time to make your lunch or think about what to have for dinner when you are strapped for time!
