Monday morning workout: 4 miles in 33 minutes – Rainy and breezy
So much to catch up on! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was filled with running, cooking, and a night out with the ladies! I went to Gloria’s with some of the girls from my running group. Gloria’s is a Latin restaurant that has salsa dancing on Saturday nights. They always have a live band and it is always a blast. We danced and laughed the night away.
Saturday was also the first day back since the marathon coaching my running group. I logged a total of 7 miles and we also some drills. It was pretty chilly out…28 degrees – wind chill was 15! After the run, I warmed up with some coffee. Overall it was a great run…I think I am finally getting my running mojo back.
This weekend I also experimented with some new recipes! I made some kale chips. What are kale chips, you ask? Well they’re the most delicious alternative to Doritos! Okay not quite, but they really do make a great snack and are easy to make. All you need is fresh kale, a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. Break up the kale and bake them in the oven on 350 for 10-15 minutes til they are light and crispy. Yum yum!! I loved them so much I even made them this morning to go with my turkey sandwich for lunch.
On Sunday I also made some garlic crusted salmon, roasted asparagus, and potatoes. Eric loves my asparagus and always asks me how I make them so tasty…I am slowly getting him to eat lots and lots of veggies.
We spent last night resting and watching the Grammys. I kept going back and forth between that and the Atlanta Housewives on Bravo.
I will end with one of my all-time favorite Whitney songs…may God rest her soul.
Did you watch the Grammys? What is your favorite healthy snack?
