January Challenge, Day 6

January 7, 2015

Yay! I actually got in a little exercise yesterday! I walked on the treadmill, at an incline even, for 30 minutes! I got my heart rate up and burned a few calories. Then I did 30 minutes of various stretches, Yoga moves, crunches and push ups.

Note to self: Exercise makes you happy!

When I went to Scottsdale in November and stayed at the Omni Hotel, I had a really yummy Quinoa Burger for lunch one afternoon and I’ve been thinking about trying to make it since then!

I played a little in the kitchen last night and came up with a Sweet Potato, Quinoa Burger that I thought was really yummy, but it needs a little tweaking.

I’ll work on it and post the recipe when I think its worthy.
