Ready to Take on the Rain!

I shopped the sales at Lululemon yesterday and scored some track pants and matching track jacket. I am totally one of those girls who wears matching outfits to sweat in...:) If I am going to get myself motivated, its not going to be in a drabby outfit that makes me feel unattractive!

I can't wait to try my new gear out tomorrow morning...bring on the rain:) Onto my very delicious dinner last night that the boyfriend cooked me!

Flank Steak with Mexi-rice, Peppers & Onions

The steak was marinated in garlic, salt, pepper and lime juice, then pan fried in a cast iron skillet (until desired temp...we like medium-rare). Let rest and cut into strips.

Slice a red and orange pepper and a red onion. Sautee in extra virgin olive oil, lime juice, salt, pepper, chili powder and a sprinkle of sugar. We don't usually measure...so we go on what looks/tastes right. Just add until it has the taste you like!

The mexi-rice is white rice cooked in half water/half stock, then mixed with diced plum tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice, and a little salt and pepper.

Complete meal:
I ate about half the steak on this plate;) I used the left-over steak and peppers and onions and topped a bed of spinach for my lunch...pretty tasty! I love using left-overs for lunch. Well I'm off to watch a little american idol and get to be early! Back tomorrow with bootcamp day 2!


  1. Oh my goodness! Your meal looks incredible. I may have to try that soon!

    You also look adorable in your rain work out gear! I just hope you add shoes!:p

  2. WOW delish dinner! i love me some flank steak!

  3. Yummy dinner! And lovely jacket. Girl you are gonna need it with all the rain you get up there. You will have to give us pointers on embracing the rain runs. I have only done a few and loved them.

  4. There's a Lululemon outlet an hour or so from the city -- I'm really going to have to get there soon! I love their stuff, but it's way too pricey...

    Also, has anyone ever told you that you look like Ali, the first female winner of The Biggest Loser? I think it's the bangs... :)

  5. Had to come back and find this recipe! I am making it for dinner tonight. :)
