Mmm...steak.

I love do nothing Sundays :)

I started the day off with some Pilates/Yoga blend and when I was done, I browsed Exercise TV for a quickie workout add on. I stumbled upon Jillian Michaels - 30 Day Shred. Now, I've read about this workout on almost everyone's blog and I'll admit I've been both curious and skeptical about it (I'm kinda picky about workout videos). I gave it a little preview, tested out a few moves and I think this might be my fill in workout now that bootcamp is over. I think I'm going to try it out this week and see how it goes :)

Dinner this evening was total comfort food. I pan-seared a steak, topped it with some roasted grape tomatoes and a drizzle of sauce from the pan and served it up with a side of green beans and a baked sweet potato.
The roasted grape tomatoes were a last minute addition when I opened the fridge and saw I hadn't even touched the pint last week. They were a surprisingly nice touch with the steak!

Again, up close because I was secretly hoping to get an artsy shot. How do people take such fantastic close ups of food??
After dinner, I followed up with a cupcake from yesterday and a mug of my favorite tea:
This stuff tastes more complex than regular green tea...and it smells a little like popcorn when it's steeping :)
