My desk is clean, organized, and ready for work! I even dusted it! 😉
I did a couple of “arts & crafts” projects while cleaning.
This scrap-paper holder is the bottom of an old thank you card box.
I even organized the shelf in the office. I was en fuego! 😉
I tried something new for lunch today. I had a small zucchini and a yellow squash that needed to be eaten ASAP, so I made them into squash fries— sort of like my sweet potato fries.
Here’s a quick tutorial: chop zucchini/squash into “fries,” put in Tupperware container, add 1 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp ground flaxseed meal, 1 tbsp whole flaxseeds, and salt + pepper to taste.
Put on cover and shake like crazy.
Spread fries on baking sheet and then bake for 20-25 minutes on 475*F.
My squash fries turned out really well. They were sort of crispy on the outside, but still soft and “squashy” on the inside. I really liked the grainy texture and flaxseeds on the outside.
To go with my “fries,” I made a couple of dipping sauces: pesto + sour cream and buffalo sauce + Four Cheese Rosa sauce.
Both dipping sauces were pretty good, but (not surprisingly) I preferred the one with buffalo sauce. 😉
In honor of Cookie Friday, I attempted a new cookie recipe, but it totally bombed. 😕 These cookies were edible, but nothing special. Boo.
I also added a Siggi’s yogurt to lunch for some extra protein.
A little while after lunch, I snacked on a pear. Now, I am hungry again.

I still need to finish packing for my trip tomorrow. I feel so unprepared! I need to get my act together ASAP!
I’m meeting Julie at the Body Pump 73 launch tonight. I’m so excited to meet her in person. Hopefully, BP 73 doesn’t scare her– I’ve heard it’s really tough!
