Wow it’s felt like a crazy week. Rush rush rush, thats how it’s been for me. Each night when I get home from work I’ve felt like I rushed to the kitchen to get dinner going, then we eat, hang out for a bit and I’m off to bed. With my early wake up call I get real tired so early in the evening. Sometimes it makes the day feel so much shorter 😦
The dinner’s I’ve rushed to make have been very tasty though. Wanna see? yes yes yes
Mango chicken with sauted veggies over soba noodles. This was my first time cooking up soba noodles (which for anyone wondering are made with buckwheat flour) and we really liked them! Plus they were done in 3 minutes. Total time saver.
Italian barley bake (Italian turkey sausage, barley, tomato sauce, mushroom, onion, spinach and mozzarella) and a side salad.
My friend at work actually challenged me that I couldn’t make a polenta pizza… oh yes I can! The mini’s have all different topping combos using italian sausage, asparagus, onion, red bell pepper, swiss chard, butternut squash and mozzarella. They were yummy and fun, but the crust was a bit more labor intensive.
One thing that helps keep me sane when life gets busy and stressed is exercise. It’s my time away from everything and ends up giving me energy to handle life.
So far this weeks my exercise has gone like this:
Sunday – 9.1 mile run
Monday – 25 minute walk and 15 minutes of abs
Tuesday – 50 minutes of shoulders, triceps and biceps
Wednesday – 2 mile run
Thursday – 35 minutes of legs and back and 15 minutes of abs
I’ll probably get some more walking in and some yoga this weekend.
What does your exercise look like this week?
