O.M.G. S.O.R.E.

Ouchy ouch ouch ouch.  Day 2 of weight training is going well but painful.  Yesterday I did chest, calves, and abs, and this morning, the pain woke me up.  Today I did quads, hamstrings, and biceps.  Wonder how I’ll feel in the morning.  To fuel myself this morning, I had a hard-boiled egg and oatmeal:

With peanut butter, apple butter, and banana.  Lunch was some leftover chicken in a salad:

I made six boneless chicken breasts yesterday so I could make a few meals and snacks.  It made dinner last night, lunch today, and a snack I brought to work later which was half a chicken breast and a Kashi kids size peanut butter granola bar, and dinner tonight (and I still have some left for tomorrow).  Dinner so easy to throw together, as I also made a big pot of brown rice yesterday.  I got home late from work, chopped up 2 cooked chicken breasts, and threw them in a big pan with a can of black beans, a cup of frozen corn, about a cup or so of salsa, a pinch garlic powder and onion powder, a palmful of cumin, pinch of coriander and cayenne and simmered for 15 minutes.  I served it over brown rice and melted some fat-free cheddar cheese, with a dollop of greek yogurt and hot sauce:

Awesome!  And if it didn’t hurt so bad to move, I would get up off this couch and get me some chocolate.

TGIF:Thai goodness, it’s Friday!

Hi Friends!

It’s Friday,yay!  I stayed at my sister’s house last night and for breakfast I made us some oatmeal with peanut butter in it.  Please leave comments for any oatmeal add in suggestions you might have, I’m up for trying new things.

Then I suckered her in to doing Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred with me.  It’s a killer, enjoy those sore muscles sister!  I played with babies (she has the cutest twin babies in the world, I’m sure of it), then scarfed down lunch before I left for work:

Kashi Mushroom and spinach pizza.  We split this 3 ways and it was much smaller than it looked.  I was still hungry, but running late, so I had a handful of these as I ran out the door:

Honey roasted peanuts.  I made it to work on time, but had another snack on the way:  A unpictured half of a Larabar.  I worked for a few hours.  I met with a new bride, her colors are purple, brown, and ivory.  This will be the first wedding I design, I’m so excited.  I got home late, but not to late to make an awesome, healthy dinner:

Thai shrimp and chicken with broccoli over brown rice with lots of hot sauce.  I had Jordan dig this jar out of the recycle bin to show you, it’s so easy and so healthy.

Hope you all have a wonderful week-end.  Remember, I welcome comments.
