Last night I went for a very simple approach when it came to cooking my first meal as part of my “Eat more fresh and whole foods” challenge.
My plan was to marinate some of my Trader Joe’s chicken in herb and garlic and then saute it up while I roasted some red potatoes with olive oil and spices.
Imagine my surprise when I opened my chicken and realized it was the pre-cooked kind that had already been grilled and seasoned for me. All I had to do was heat it up. Not what I was going for, but oh well.
So instead, I turned my attention to the potatoes.
Week one = success!
Workout wise last night, I did a 30-minute living room bootcamp since it was way too cold for me to schelp to the gym and I wanted to watch some TLC. (sidenote: Comcast had taken away TLC and several other channels for like a month, so we had to upgrade our cable to get them back. I just got TLC back over the weekend. Talk about major withdrawal.) I did a very Jillian-esque style workout. Lots of strength circuits with two minutes of cardio blasts in between. It was fun, but I kind of miss running, even if it’s on the dreadmill. If it’s not tooo frigid tonight, I might try to brave the cold and head to the gym.
I’m such a wimp in the cold weather. I just want to batten down the hatches, cuddle up under some blankets and not leave my warm house until spring.
How do you all deal with the cold?
