Day 16: I Actually Cooked a Meal

Today was one of those days where nothing went according to plan.  I ran late all day, and every errand I ran seemed to take forever.  By the time I got home, I knew that I needed to do resistance training, but I also needed to go to the bank and the grocery store, so I used my warm up time to briskly walk to the bank, the store and home again.  Not the ideal warm up, but it was the only way that it was going to happen.

I did the RT exercises, but swapped out the bent leg curls for an exercise that my chiropractor wants me to do.  I’m hoping to add the bent leg curls back next week, but right now, I am a little worried that they are too rough on my back.

After my RT was over, it was time to make dinner.  A few weeks ago, I bought a Groupon for eMeals, a meal planning service, because I hate trying to think of interesting things to eat.  for $50 I get a year’s worth of weekly meal plans for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The dinner ones are portion control, and designed for two people.  Since Hubsy works most nights, I’m usually on my own for dinner, and most recipes are for four servings.  I’m not much of a cook, I usually do a frozen meal, or cobble together things that are heat and eat.  Tonight was my first time cooking anything beyond latkes and matzoh balls in a long time!

I made chicken breasts in a balsamic vinegar sauce with a side of baby gold potatoes with a ranch sauce.  I also added a salad of spinach with sunflower seeds to get the greens in.  All of the ingredients, except for the milk added to the ranch dressing, were organic, and it wasn’t half bad!  I cooked up three chicken breasts, and only ate half of one, so I have enough leftovers for lunches and dinners for a few days.

All in all, today was a better day movement wise, and I am looking forward to my run/walk tomorrow!
