Well, here it is since you all asked for it!
FRIDAY: 30 minute run with suicides/abs
SATURDAY: legs/swim laps with Ryan
I really stick to it since I write it out on a calender and stick it to my bathroom mirror. It might seem intense to some but this is what works for me and when I stick to doing this and eating clean, I feel and look my absolute best. I’ve already noticed significant differences in the way I feel (much more energy) and look since I started lifting heavier weights and eating more protein. I know to some my lifestyle may seem too stringent, but to each their own and you have to find out what works for you!
Tonight when I got home from work I just really didn’t want my leftovers after all. I think I can eat something two days in a row before I just get bored. I love food so much! It will work out much much better when I move in with Ryan this Christmas (!!!!!) and can finally cook for someone other than myself. Guys are like human garbage disposals after all. 😉
Tonight I reached down deep in my endless supply of chicken recipes and decided upon my Spicy Oven Fried Chicken. Here’s my recipe:
To serve 1
1 chicken breast (about 4-5 ounces)
1 tbsp soy sauce, low sodium or tamari
1 heaping tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1. Preheat oven to 450. In a shallow bowl, pour the soy sauce. Dip the chicken breast in the soy sauce.
2. Put all the other ingredients in a plastic zip lock bag. Add the chicken, seal the bag and shake well!
3. Mist the chicken with cooking spray and bake for about 20 minutes or until the internal temp. is 165 or higher (I always temp. my chicken).
4. Serve with ketchup to dip—it’s the best!
I also had a sweet potato smeared with earth balance, a bunch of steamed broccoli and asparagus and a dark chocolate for dessert.
I think I’m all ready for the last two real nights of class (since Friday all we are doing is cleaning). I have everything laid out and am ready to bake. I feel much more comfortable in the danish realm because I just love dealing with yeast doughs. Tonight is actually my last time ever mixing a dough in culinary school! Tomorrow I just bake everything off and my next class is chocolate and sugar where we just sit and mold sugary confections all night. Thanks for all the moral support today! I can always count on you all to really make my day so much better with your kind comments and I PROMISE a picture on Friday morning of my final products.
For a snack tonight I am packing a cup’s worth of Go Lean Crunch:
Have a great night y’all!
