Last Monday, I woke up and decided, It's a new week and a new month, so NO MORE FUNK! I forced myself to start working out. I knew I needed to take control, and I'm certainly glad that I did. :)
Monday: 10 squats (#GGHMuscleMarch) + Strong Stride DVD (Program 1)
Tuesday: 2.27 mile run (easy) + 2 sets of 15 reps: Dumbbell Extensions, Dumbbell Triceps Extensions, Dumbbell Bench Press
Thursday: 3.15 mile run + 3 sets of 12 reps: Alternating Dumbbell Curls, Bent Over Rows, Overhead Shoulder Press
Friday: 20 squats (#GGHMuscleMarch) + Strong Stride DVD (Program 1)
What's for Dinner?
We ordered a couple new toys for the kitchen, and I can't wait to play with them this week.
OXO Good Grips V-Blade Mandoline Slicer - I've never actually owned a mandoline slicer before. I've already done a little slicing with it, and I'm super excited about how quickly it's going to make dinner and salad prep! Whoo hoo!!
Aroma Digital Rice Cooker and Food Steamer - I don't know why it took us so long to buy a rice cooker. I've been cooking it on the stove, and it always boils over and make a stinky mess. This one also steams veggies and other things. I'll be using it this week for making stir fry.
Sunday: A variation of Summer Vegetable Tian. I've never tried this before, but it looks so good!
Monday: Slow Cooker Lasagna. Jeff's special request. He loves this stuff! :)
Wednesday: Chicken and Asparagus Stir Fry. I made this last time we got asparagus in our Bountiful Baskets, and it was the best stir fry I'd ever made, so it will definitely be a staple whenever we get asparagus.
Thursday: Baked Chimichangas
Saturday: Hummus Crusted Chicken
Overnight Spiced Vanilla-Pear Oatmeal
Cheddar Apple Muffins
Chips & Salsa
Slice veggies for tonight's tian
Prep sauce for tomorrow's lasagna
Prep salads for this week's lunches
Slow cook chicken for salads and chimichangas
