Holy crap am I sore today! It really feels awesome, though. It’s a reminder that I worked hard last night and it motivates me to keep going!
Matt had to plow pretty much all day yesterday, so I stayed home again last night so he could get some sleep and get ready to go out for another night of plowing/salting. This gave me the time to workout and make a good healthy dinner, as well as prepare some things for lunches. As I mentioned before, last night was legs – here’s what I did:
Bodyweight Squats – 3 sets of 8 reps
Plie Squats – 3 sets of 8
(^Repeat both twice)
Jump Squats (with dumbbell) – 3 sets of 15
Stiff-legged Dead lifts – 3 sets of 8
Walking lunge (with weights) – 3 sets of 30 steps
Stationary lunges (with weights) – 3 sets 12
Calf Raises (with weights) – 3 sets of 12, 10, 8 reps
Afterwards, I walked downstairs to grab stuff to make a smoothie – I was already sore just going down the stairs! After my smoothie, about an hour later, I decided to make a healthy dinner, but didn’t have a whole lot in the house to choose from. I knew I had to make some grilled chicken for lunches, so I looked up some recipes I could use. I decided to just throw some things together and see how it turned out. Here’s what I ate:
What you need:
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
3/4 cup whole wheat pasta
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
A few baby spinach leaves
1 tbsp. olive oil
What you do:
I used a George Foreman grill to cook my chicken. I put a little bit of olive oil on the breasts before putting them on the grill, just so they would brown a little bit.
Cook the pasta according to package.
Chop up the garlic and spinach and throw it into a skillet with the olive oil, put it on low heat.
Once the pasta is done cooking, add it to the garlic/spinach skillet, add the cajun seasoning, and stir it all together until well mixed.
Add cooked, cubed chicken in and put into a bowl and EAT!
