I was able to leave work a few minutes early again yesterday which was so nice. I spent a few minutes relaxing on the couch with a book before I got started on dinner. Got started on dinner – who am I kidding? I feel like it has been such a luxury this week… because we cooked on our rainy Sunday dinners have literally been reheating! I love it – more time for reading.
Last night’s dinner was a chicken, squash, and rice casserole. It wasn’t really my favorite but Adam loved it. He asked a couple of times if there was more.
For me, the dish was somewhat cheesy and the texture just wasn’t really my favorite. I’ve never been a fan of that texture and I really shouldn’t have been surprised… But, I had wanted to try it again as this was a very “skinny” version of a traditional casserole.
Adam was definitely very surprised and happy to see me making it on Sunday! I ended up having some whole wheat bread with dinner and then I snacked on some frozen berries and oranges after dinner. All in all not a bad dinner … not my favorite but not bad. If you are interested in the recipe, it can be found on CookingLight. I made a few minor substitutions based upon ingredients that I on hand but nothing too noticeable.
This mornings workout was 90 minutes on the arc trainer followed by 30 minutes with weights. I’ve been slowly building up my weights … increasing the weights with some of the exercises and increasing reps with others. It is starting to feel really good.
With a good workout behind me … I am really ready to kick of the day! Nothing major in store for me but the weather is looks nice and there is a farmer’s market outside of my office that I may hit up during lunch. What about you? Anything fun on your calendar for today?
