Push ups, spin, and quinoa

So, I had yesterday and today off from work, yay!! I spent yesterday getting all my Christmas shopping done and getting the tree up! Last year we were in a rental house that did not have much space for a tree so we had purchased a rather small 5ft artificial. It worked well last year. Now that we are in our own house, with much more space, the same tree looks rather inadequate. It will do for this year, it is just hubby and I, but next year I think we'll get a different tree. Since I had the day off, my trainer and I met a little later for our Wednesday strength training, so I was able to sleep in just a bit! We had a great workout, including some crazy push ups, I'll share the picture once she sends it over! Then as we were finishing up, she told me that if I was free this afternoon, she's going to a 4:30 spin class and I'm welcome to join her. At first I was a little iffy, I mean, this is my day off, I want to relax and play on the computer all day! hahaha I decided to text her this morning while I was waiting on my tires on my car to be rotated and balanced and told her to count me in! So, I'll be heading soon for workout # 2 today - spin class! Woo hoo!! Excited!! In the meanwhile, I'm re-coloring my hair as my roots were starting to show and waiting on my pudding to cool. I bought hubby some decaf black vanilla tea by Numi and on the box was a recipe for Black Vanilla Quinoa Pudding. I've been meaning to try Quinoa after a recommendation from my surgeon's office that it's a fabulous grain - high in protein and better tolerated by the band than rice. So, finally a reason to try it. It has raisins, walnuts, tea, apple juice, various spices and of course the quinoa in it. Smells good cooking, not sure how it will taste. going to have some before my spin class to see! :)

My hubby just bought some Quinoa because he read it helps to lower triglycerides, which his were slightly elevated at last check.
He'll be eating it this week so I'll ask him how it was. I was afraid to try it as I don't tolerate rice. Now I'm curious!
