That’s what my night consisted of.
Tonight was my second to last class subbing for Ed’s Wednesday night spin. Lots of familiar faces tonight: Tim, Katrina, Stanton, and Jen! Next week will be the last Wednesday (for now anyways) – I’m gonna miss doing it.
I was super sweaty tonight. Sometimes I measure the intensity of my workouts based on how much sports bra sweat I have afterward. Even though that doesn’t really have much to do with it. Tonight my entire sports bra was soaked. TMI? Oh well.

Serves 6-8 as a side dish

- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 pounds fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
- 1 28-ounce can of diced tomatoes (low sodium)
- Ground pepper and sea salt to taste
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
- Add the diced onion and cook for 3-5 minutes or until translucent. Add in the minced garlic and cook for another minute.
- Mix the green beans and tomatoes (don’t drain!) into the skillet. Season with salt and pepper.
- Reduce heat to low, and simmer (uncovered) for 45 minutes or until the beans are soft.
- Season again as necessary, to taste, and enjoy!
I’ve never had the two different dishes together before, but it was pretty good combined. I ended up eating it all together even though I started out with two separate sections on my plate:
Best part is the leftovers I have for tomorrow / Friday!
