First Run of Spring & BBQ Bean Sandwiches


I was itching to get outside all day yesterday because the sun was shining and it was finally warm. Right after work I ran home to change and grab the pup for a run. I typically put the harness on her when we’re out at parks with other dogs just because she’s easier to control, not that she’s aggressive…just VERY excited to make friends.


The park we go to has a 1/2 mile loop and although I aimed to do 1-2 miles, Ivy had other ideas. We made it a mile with me practically carrying her the last 1/4 of it. I think we need to build up her endurance after a winter of fattening up.



When we got home, I set to work on making dinner – BBQ bean sandwiches w/ slaw and sauteed garlic green beans. I’ve had a jar of Trader Joe’s sriracha bbq sauce sitting in our pantry forever and I’ve been racking my brain for how to use it. We’ve been eating more beans to add protein to our diet and I love how they keep me fuller for longer, not to mention they are so cheap. I tried my hand at soaking some pinto beans, but they weren’t ready in time so I used up the rest of the canned ones we have on hand. From here on out — no more canned goods!

I meant to hit the gym this morning, but my blanket cave got the better of me so I’ll be doing an indoor workout tonight due to the rain and then tomorrow is Day 1 of the #DetoxYoBody yoga challenge!
