It was another Ellie Krieger recipe night in the In My Tummy house. Tonight we had Balsamic Chicken with Baby Spinach.
Surprisingly, I didn’t change the recipe at all. The only problem was that the garlic burned when I added it to the oil and then the bottom of the pan burned when I cooked the chicken in it. That didn’t happen to Ellie. It was still good though.
I have this problem where I basically eat another dinner while I’m cooking. Well, not another dinner, but a large snack. Today, for example. while I was cooking, I snacked on hummus and a bunch of baked lays. I don’t know why I do that. I guess I should just cut up some veggies to snack on or something. But that never seems as appealing.
Jason and I went to the gym after dinner. I did 20 minutes of run/walk intervals. I walked for 2 minutes at 3.5mph and then ran for 1 minute at between 7.0-7.5mph. This ended up being about a mile and a half. After that, I did a NRLFW workout:
1. Wide-grip deadlift from box, 30lbs, 10 reps, 2 sets
2. Bulgarian split squat, 25lbs, 10 reps, 2 sets
3. Reverse lunge from box with forward reach, 10lbs, 2 sets
4. Swiss ball crunch, 10 reps, 2 sets
5. Reverse crunch, 10 reps, 2 sets
6. Lateral flexion, 10 reps, 2 sets each side
7. Prone cobra, 40 seconds, 2 sets
Obviously, I had the book next to me this time to blog what the exercises were called. When I did some of these, especially the first one, I felt like the trainers were going to walk over to me and tell me that I was doing something wrong. The trainers at my gym are a bit hawkish. If you make eye contact with them, it’s all over.
Well, I’m about to watch the last episode of Dexter. Oh, before I forget, I am featured as this week’s Worker Bee on On A Lobster Placemat. Have a looksee. I had to take multiple pictures before I found one that didn’t show my messy desk!
