This week is crazy at work! I’m watching Top Chef while drinking some Sugar Cookie Sleigh Rides.
I am having issues getting my pictures to my computer, so no pictures of food today!
I had pumpkin cream cheese (I’m almost out!) on an english muffin. Part way in the morning I had oatmeal.
Leftovers for lunch!
I made a batch of Coconut Curry Quinoa for dinner. This time I added chopped carrots to the sauce while it was simmering. I also paired it with roasted green beans.
I’ve never roasted green beans before! I don’t know why. They were delicious. Roasting really brought out the sweetness.
I also used this fun new purchase while prepping dinner.
I was drawn by the Food Network a little. I love the Food Network.
I bought them at Kohl’s as part of a buy one get one half off.
They were really handy! I liked all of the different sizes, so I don’t have to move things with measure cups. I also don’t have to have my clunky bowls out. I only have four bowls to begin with, so sometimes trying to get ingredients out were a pain. They are also very compact and make for easy storage in my tiny kitchen! (I might like them a little too much). Thanks Food Network for not letting me down!
As part of a resolution to strength train more, I decided to do a work out DVD! I plan on doing more weight room strength training, but I also like doing “strength training” workout DVDs, for non-running days.
I tried this Jillian DVD on demand a few weeks ago with my college roommate. I felt the burn for sure! I didn’t get as sweaty as her other workout dvds, but I still liked it. Sometimes not getting as sweaty is good.
It is hard to do some of the floor moves while I have interested cats weaving around my legs. I still manage! Some how.
Do you strength train? How (weight room or other)?
The weight room intimidates me some!
