It has been uber humid here for the past couple of days. I can’t complain too much, I love summer, but it can be pretty draining at times. I can handle dry heat, but excessive humidity, where you are constantly sweating and feel tired all the time, like you just climbed a mountain, can be a bit too much. I can’t change the weather, so I guess I just have to embrace my sweaty self 🙂
In this exhausted state I find it even more difficult to get my butt in gear and exercise, but I somehow encouraged myself to do some “Insanity” and yoga after work today. It sorta feels like running in a sauna…Ha! I felt great afterwards and made sure to drink lots of water.
I opted for a refreshing dinner tonight. Something light and fresh. I often find that my appetite dwindles when the temperature soars, which is VERY strange for me, as I always have an appetite! So a ginormo salad was what I was craving tonight.
I had some leftover brown rice from yesterday to I was searching for a recipe to use it up.
I was inspired by a recipe from TLC; a Asian Brown Rice and Peanut Salad Toss. I tweaked it a bit by serving it all cold, and by adding some spinach, cabbage, tofu and shrimp.
It was perfection. I great mix of flavors and textures. I loved having the peanuts in there to give it some good crunch.
The end to another great day.
I am off to watch some girly TV.
