Saturday night me and my husband, who is from the Dominican Republic, went to visit with some other Dominicanos that he had met randomly. (It is hard to meet Dominicans in the U.S., let alone the western U.S. so he was super stoked about it.) We sat and talked for probably 2 or 3 hours before dinner was ready and we feasted on one of the most delicious meals I have ever had: sancocho. Sancocho is a latino dish that varies from country to country. And even though I have never tasted it before, I think Dominicans do it best! It was so good! I made the mom of the bunch promise that she would teach me how to make it.
Sunday we just lounged around still in a food coma from the night before. In the afternoon I finally got my butt up and decided to get ready for the week. I made these overnight oats, which I love because they are grab-and-go and easy to eat for lunch at work.
In other news…today I am 25 weeks! Super crazy to see my body changing so much. I feel like I look like a hobbit in this picture…my legs look so short!
After work today I changed into my workout clothes and then had my go to snack of cottage cheese and strawberries.
I guess that motivated me, because then I actually went for a nice walk for just over a mile (but the hills in my neighborhood are INSANE!) I walked down to the library to see if they had a book that I wanted…they didn’t. My library is so small that I think they only have a total of 200 books….seriously. But it was nice to get some fresh air after two weeks straight of rain.
