Tonight I made a very successful Cooking Light meal—the yummy pasta salad that is featured!
I made some adjustments. I didn’t want to buy a special type of pasta when I already had pasta in my pantry so I just used the whole wheat spirals I had on hand. I didn’t use anchovies or capers because I dislike both and used kalamata olives instead of small pitted nicoise olives. It was very very yummy and incredibly easy to make! I made two servings and am saving the other one for dinner tomorrow night. I also had a crudite platter with raw carrot and cucumber slices.
For a snack later I am packing a string cheese for protein and this brown rice treat that I got free at Whole Foods. It looks pretty yummy and is all natural so I thought I’d give it a try tonight!
Today at the gym I did triceps, back and shoulders. Here was my routine:
Run 2 minutes on treadmill to warm up
3 sets of seated shoulder press holding 15 lb weights. 12 reps to each set
3 sets of dumbbell lateral raises holding 5 lb weights. 15 reps to each set
3 sets of lying triceps extension holding 15 lb dumbbell. 12 reps to each set
3 sets of triceps pressdown using 25 lbs on the machine. 12 reps to each set
3 sets of wide-grip lat pulldowns using 40 lbs. 12 reps to each set
3 sets of single arm dumbbell rows using 15 lbs. 12 reps to each set
When I got back, I refueled with this yummy snack: a 0% Fage mixed with a peach fruit cup (packed in pear juice not syrup) and a small handful of toasted almond slices.
Off to school. Big night!
