Hi! It’s so weird because its only Tuesday, but today is my last day in the office this week! I am going to Kansas City, MO for work tomorrow, so I’m working from home in the morning and then flying in the afternoon, so for me its kind of a short week. But don’t be too jealous – – I have to get everything set up tomorrow night for the course, and then work starts at 6am on Thursday and 7am on Friday while I’m there.
I’ve had several people ask about the grill pan I use at home, mostly as a result of yesterday’s post on fajitas. Just to jog your memory, here’s how the veggies and shrimp turned out:
The grill pan I have goes over two burners on my stove, and has one side that has grill marks, and one side that is flat like a griddle. This is it. It’s AWESOME and something I would highly recommend getting for your kitchen if you like to grill and have limited access to an outdoor grill like me, because I live in an apartment. Feel free to ask me any other questions about the grill pan – – there’s some pictures of it in action on this post.
Last night, I got in a great workout before making dinner. I ended up being at the gym just over an hour and here’s what I did:
- 5×50 jumping jacks (250 total)
- 3×15 bicep curls with 10 lbs in each hand
- 3×15 tricep curls with a 15 lb weight
- 3×15 shoulder press
- 2×15 wall squats w/a ball
- 25 minutes running – 2.63 miles (6.2 – 7.0 mph)
- 15 minutes walking at 4.0 at a 10 incline
- 5 minute cool down
Whew! I was a sweaty mess after the workout but it felt GOOD. I’m a little sore today but in a good way.
Breakfast this morning was a delicious yogurt bowl:
In the mix:
- Oikos 0% honey greek yogurt
- 1/2 grapefruit
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- canned pumpkin
- pomegranate seeds
- sprinkle chia seeds
Perfect blend of flavors and textures. The yogurt was sweet because of the honey so it was perfect with the tart grapefruit and the crunch of the pom and chia seeds was great against the creamy yogurt and juicy grapefruit. I could eat this every day and be happy.
Do you like in a house or an apartment? Where are you from and where do you live now? I mentioned it above but live in a two bedroom apartment in Arlington, VA (right outside of DC). Originally from Connecticut, but I moved to DC for school at GWU and never left. Go! 🙂
