Monday, you can go to hell!

March 4, 2013

Guess who was in a chipper mood this morning?  Hopefully it was you — I know for sure that it wasn’t me!  The hectic weekend (not to mention all that running with the dogs) left me desperately needing more sleep than I had time for this morning.

Workout — 3.4.2013

I somehow managed to crawl my way out of my comfy, warm bed and into the kitchen for a breakfast of PB toast and oatmeal.  After a cup of sweet, mother coffee I put together an at-home circuit workout.  Here is what I did:


I only did 2 rounds of this circuit and I used a set of 2o pound dumbbells.  I failed to check the time before I started but if I had to guess, it probably took me around 30 minutes to complete.

I kept the rep numbers low for this circuit, because I wanted to be able to quickly move from one exercise to the next without having to worry about recovery time.  I was a sweaty mess when I was done so I think that I accomplished my goal!

For the most part, Sadie sleeps through the morning and into the afternoon but, without fail, every time I start working out in living room, she seems to think that it is perfect time to wake up and want to play.  I was part way through my first set of jumping jacks when I turned around to find this:


May I remind you that she was in a deep sleep not seconds before.  It really is a wonder that I get anything done around here with this needy dog hanging around.

Dinner Prep — 3.4.2013

We have had a chicken taken up residence in our freezer and I figured it was high-time that thing got cooked.  I recently came across a recipe for cooking a chicken in a crock pot — pretty much you just put the whole chicken in there and cook it for 8 hours.

I thawed this chicken for a few days in the fridge and this afternoon, it was time to get cooking.  I tried to recall the recipe in my head (I don’t remember where I saw it, other wise I would link to it in this post.  Sorry) and if I remember correctly, you chop up some onions and throw those into the pot.  Then you add the whole chicken (after removing the neck and gizzards which is always a delightful task), throw some seasonings on top, set the timer, and walk away.


I am a little skeptical of how this bird is going to turn out but I am keeping my fingers crossed.

I will let you know how it turns out!
