Sunday mornings are definitely happier than Monday’s around here (especially Sunday’s where I get an extra hour of sleep!)…early morning class (and I have to be there half an hour early today) means a lot of rushing around.
And I might be biased about Sundays because of this.
Chocolate chips in my protein pancake. Never deny the sweet tooth, even with breakfast.
This means I am officially halfway done the program! This was week 2 in phase 2 of the program, so it was a repeat of last week. I followed the plan to a tee this week – no changes to the workouts, and no added workouts either. It’s definitely working so far, I’m starting to notice a difference in my leg muscles – they feel stronger and they’re starting to look more muscled too!
In the first week, I had a lot of trouble getting through the circuit workout. I already feel like I’m improving with them, so I’m ready to completely rock them out next week! Of course, looking forward to seeing more changes as I keep building that muscle.
Sunday night dinners should always be something hearty, shouldn’t they?
Spaghetti with meat sauce always screams comforting and homey to me. I’m usually too lazy to make homemade sauce, but I always amp up the jarred sauces I buy. For this sauce, I sautéed a chopped onion, 2 teaspoons garlic, 1/2 diced bell pepper, a pound of ground chicken and a bunch of Italian seasoning until cooked. I added the jar of sauce and a few handfuls of chopped spinach. Sneaky way to add veggies while adding flavour and bulk – it’s a good way to go about it.
Although, I realized halfway through cooking that I didn’t have Parmesan cheese. Definite fail – just not the same without the cheese.
Nonetheless, still made for a good Sunday night dinner.
Off to start the long day at school – have a good Monday, everyone!
<— Random side note: I have the driest lips EVER right now. As in, so dry chapstick barely does anything. Any suggestions?
<— Are you a chocolate-with-breakfast sort of person? I’m of the chocolate-at-any-time sort, myself.
