Today has been like every other Monday. Do any of you experience a bit of a drag on Mondays? After a weekend of indulgences and a big Sunday meal, It takes me a little bit to get going on Mondays. I did a short mile run before the GPP workout. The workout was “3 bars of death”. I have done this workout before and it is a tough workout to RX as is, but I wanted to give myself a little challenge to push me out of the Monday drag. I upped the weight to 105 for dead lifts, and 65pds for the power cleans and push press.
This workout with heavier weight made this a completely different workout. The little push, was more then a hard shove. It was a good challenge. I was able to use the heavy weight for 17 rounds then I decided to drop to the RX weight to finish off the last two minutes of the workout.
I made a shake before heading to the workout.
I’m really loving the plant fusion protein! In the mix I had almond milk, ice, 4 strawberries, 1 scoop of chocolate plant fusion and a a tbsp. of chia seeds- TO GO!
The rest of the day was spent catching up with all the house chores that comes up after a weekend trip. Unpacking, laundry, laundry and more laundry…
I taught body attack tonight, quad is still bugging a little bit, but it was a great class as usual.
I came straight home to make dinner, I had some grilled chicken on had so I quickly steamed some veggies on a skillet before adding the chicken and dressing.
Sesame Ginger Chicken Fry.
- 1 C. Broccoli
- 1/2 chopped/diced purple onion
- 1 C. frozen vegetable medley (carrots,corn, green beans)
- 6 oz. Grilled Chicken breast
- 2/3 C. Brown rice
- 1/2 C. Walden's Farm Sesame Ginger dressing
Steam your veggies
Add your chicken and dressing
Stir and serve on top of 1/3C. of Brown rice.
I use this rice. It is so easy. Too easy.
40 sec and done.
No dirty rice cooker or burnt pan- SO simple. And tasty.
I will admit, I love cooking and I love good rice but I am NOT good at making good rice. I think I burn it every time because I can never get the water to rice ratio perfect. To dry, not cooked thoroughly, to sticky or mushy. I really hate making rice so this is as good as it gets around here.
Questions of the day:
What do you do to beat the Monday drag?
What is something you hate cooking or something you make that never turns out right?
