Dinner last night was Roasted Bell Pepper Pasta that we received in our Full Circle Farm box last week. Once the pasta was cooked I tossed it with some butter, garlic and parmesan cheese. With fancy pasta like this I find that I prefer the taste of the pasta over a heavy sauce any day — yup, this coming from the girl who ate spaghetti drowned in sauce every day as a snack for close to a year.
(I can’t believe I just confessed that.)
I also roasted some squash, orange carrots and white carrots to have on the side. It doesn’t get much better than a huge pile of roasted veggies!
I had an early crack-o-practor appointment this morning so I got in a quick, at-home circuit. Here is how it went:
I set my interval timer for 30 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest/transition. I used 10 pound dumbbells for the Lunge and Shoulder Presses, the Push Up Rows and the Low Jacks.
I did 2 rounds and had to hurry off to the shower and I just didn’t feel like I had gotten a full workout in. I promised myself that I would find time later in the day to do 2 more rounds and that is exactly what I did!
Later in the day I managed to squeeze in 2 more rounds of this circuit and I felt much better after I did.
Just goes to show you don’t have to spend hours sweating it out — a few mini workouts throughout the day can be just as productive.
Speaking of sweating it out — tomorrow is another morning at the gym and I am looking forward to running fast, lifting heavy things and getting all sorts of sweaty.
Ta ta for now!
