This last year my self care and healthy habits took a hit, but that is to be expected with a new baby. I am trying to find a balance though because I fully believe in the oxygen mask analogy (in order to be good for others you have to take care of yourself too). So I have been toying with the idea of finding a trainer...to workout with...that's what they're called right hehehe. Those that know me just re-read that line I am sure because I loathe working out...in a gym.
I love yoga and being active, but running on a hamster wheel or throwing around some 2 lb weights is not my idea
of a good time. However, I need some accountability, but I am resisting it. For one, I am not coordinated and I don't want to do a bunch of stupid
exercises (see: that time I tried to do a burpee), I also don't want a drill sergent - I don't need a cheer squad and
lastly it is not necessarily what I want to be spending my time doing.
So there are my really positive, unfiltered excuses, now I just need to suck it up and commit because I need to get into a routine. I also need some expertise because I don't know what Im doing with all those contraptions. We shall see, in the meantime, I am cleaning up our diet a bit and trying to eat a little less meat. This soup is great because it is light and vegetarian, but you get some good protein and whole grains from the farro. Please find sous vide and traditional instructions below.
