Hello friends! I am happy to report that I am feeling much better since seeing you last night 🙂 Phew… hoping it continues this way.
However, I still didn’t want to push it with the workout today considering I have to be in tip top shape for tomorrow’s presentation and didn’t want to chance anything!
So in lieu of a vigorous workout, I opted for taking Lucy Dog for a nice mile walk (and rehearsing my presentation while doing so – yes, I am sure I looked ridiculous talking to myself!) and then tried out the P90X “ab ripper X” afterwards.
Thoughts??? I loved the routine, it was intense 🙂 In fact, I loved it so much that I think I’m going to incorporate it into my workouts a few times per week!
Dinner tonight was simple & deelish. 45 minutes from start to finish – yes please 🙂
First on the menu was a london broil ($4.03 at TL’s & a lean cut of meat, deal.) that had been marinating overnight & all day in this mixture:
When I got started I realized that last night in my not-feeling-so-well haze that I totally forgot the olive oil oooops! Well folks, guess what I learned? You totally don’t need it! All I did was drizzle 1tblsp veg oil on the steak while cooking, perfection. I love unexpected lessons in the kitchen, especially when they totally healthify a dish 🙂
Grilled up on my fave cast iron grill 😉 bfffffffs!
There were some side dishes using these guys as well:
Simple roasted veggies
- broccoli w/ 1 tblsp EVOO, 2 cloves minced garlic, salt & pepper
- 2 roma tomatoes, quartered & salt/peppered
- 1 onion, cut into large pieces
Coat pan with some cooking spray, then just let them happily roast away at 400F for about 20-25 minutes!
And in no time you’ve got some sweet, caramelized veggies!
I also made some basmati rice using the leftover chicken stock – this really kicks rice up to a whole ‘notha level peeps!
All together now 🙂
Well friends, I have some presentation practicin’ to get to here… I am sure The Man can’t wait to listen to this 😉 I also have some intellectual television trashy teenage tv aka The Hills to watch and some google reader to get to… so gotta run!
Can’t wait to see everyone for hump day and have a lovely night!
