So- August through the beginning of October, I was working on the beautiful and epic musical, Ragtime. I was very excited to play a dream role, Mother, with such a wonderful cast and production with Fiddlehead Theatre.

So. The PointsPlus counting has been extremely lazy lately. I have no excuse. I know it's easy. I know I can do it, I just have had a hard time. Mostly, I've been good for a few days in a row and then I'd kind of ruin it for a couple, then back to being good... I admit, I have not been to a meeting in a couple of months and I'm sure that's part of it. I need to go back. It's been so easy to brush off for a while, though. The holiday season is coming up, though, and I NEED the stability. I need the support. I am going back! (Sadly, next week. Because this week, I am having a tooth pulled... ick) But- I have been tracking since Monday. And I'm feeling good about it. Thursday will be the test.
Ok- "recipe" time. "Recipe" because I didn't do a whole lot to make this good.
I took a picture of it, but it just looked disgusting. It was amazing, though!
Tofukey Chorizo and Pumpkin Millet
Millet- 1 cup dry
Water- 3 cups
Pumpkin- 1 can
salt and pepper to taste
Tofurkey Chorizo- 1 package
Onion- 1 large, diced
Red pepper- 1 large, diced
Put the millet and water in a large pot and bring it to a boil. Turn down the heat and let it simmer about 25 minutes. Add the pumpkin and salt and pepper.
In a skillet, cook the garlic and onion for a few minutes and then add the pepper. After about five minutes, add the chorizo. The spices on the chorizo were so yummy that I didn't add anything.
Serve together... I got about 4 servings out of this. It was amazing. But not attractive. But amazing.
It's been a while. I've been running maybe one a week. And not far. I blame this guy-
Ok. He's not totally to blame. But it's just so hard to leave him sometimes. And he doesn't like running. Not for more than a quarter of a mile.
We adopted Winston in August. He's a wonderful addition to our family! But he makes me slightly less productive than I would like to be.
Anyhow- I'm getting over it. Mostly.
More on running- I know I was supposed to run the Salem Wicked Half marathon in September. It turned out that we had a ten out of twelve rehearsal (10am-10pm with a two hour break) and I wouldn't have made it on time. Ah well.
BUT- once I have a better idea of what my next year will look like, I will start picking out next year's races and train!
Also- since I last blogged, I started teaching BodyCombat, Tabata, Circuit, and re-started BodyPump. They're all going well and the different classes keep me busy and entertained. I definitely prefer this to the 40239420 Zumba classes a week that I used to teach. I still teach and love Zumba, don't get me wrong. Now I just teach it 1-2x a week and I enjoy it.
PS- lunch time discovery- frozen Brussels Sprouts are horrid.
