Math equation time! Written in third person, of course.
If Kendall naps from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. and has a midnight bed time, how many hours sleep will she get if she goes to 6 a.m. yoga?
If you guessed 8 hours of sleep, you win. What you win, I don’t know.
For the second day in a row, I made it a point to listen to my body. After a long afternoon at work I was tired, and with the weather acting weird (scorching hot Monday to slightly chilly today), I knew my body/sinuses were not happy.
Upon arrival from work, I promptly laid out on the couch to watch the RHONJ finale. I only made it 10 minutes into the most drama-filled show ever. You know I was tired.
My nap kind-of worked out amazingly, though. Nick was working until 9 tonight, so I was on schedule to make a dinner that would be hot on the stove and not in plastic containers ready to warm up.
Baked Eggplant Parmigiana
1 medium eggplant, sliced .3 inch (or smaller)
.25 cup breadcrumbs (I used Progresso Italian Style)
.25 t. onion powder
.25 t. garlic powder
.25 t. dried oregano
2 egg whites
1 t. olive oil
Last night I peeled and sliced the eggplant and layered it in a dish, slightly salting between the layers, then refrigerated over night. The salt brings the moisture out of the eggplant so it will bake up firmer.
I broiled the eggplant for about 20 minutes, flipping half-way through. When it was brown and crispy, I topped half of the slices with shredded mozzarella and placed it back in the oven for 2-3 minutes.
*Note – You may want to cook this at 400* in your oven. It has always taken a little longer to bake in mine, so I usually add a good amount of degrees to my baking temperature.
Math equation #2 – Probability of Kendall getting her butt to the 6 a.m. yoga class.
If her feline alarm clock wakes her up at 5:30 a.m., just like she’s done for the past two weeks – 80%.
If it’s cold and rainy out – 40%.
Just to see if morning yoga is something she likes – 100%.
Here’s to hoping my motivation is around at 5:30 a.m.
