Guess what. Last night, I cooked up such a good dinner! It’s kind of sad how proud I was of myself.
Anywho, here’s what I made:
Baked (roasted?) potatoes (with garlic, Italian seasoning, onion powder, olive oil):
Some sauteed carrots, onions, and bell peppers:
And my mama’s marinated chicken which I cooked up on the pan, too:
Yeah. All that with some S&P and Sriracha sauce and you have one super-filling meal. Actually, I had a bunch leftover for another meal…
Cut to this morning.
I had a light breakfast and then I chilled, checked emails, then did a quick upper body workout.
Building up to first push-up PHASE 2. That’s right. I actually did phase 1.5 on Sunday (doing some with chin-up grip and some with pull-up grip). Phase two is lowering down, all with pull-up grip (palms away from you).
I am pleased to say that I am WAY more capable of this stuff than when I started two weeks ago. That first time left me wrecked. Now, I can actually lower down slowly instead of just dropping down to the ground.
After 5 sets of 8 reps, I did 4 sets of 15 push-ups with the pull-up bar. Again, I think this makes it easier, which I loves. I can’t believe I’m doing them all on my feet though 🙂
Finished it all off with about 8 minutes of shoulder/arm burnouts. Holy crap, it BURNED.
Now here was my post-workout meal:
Bell pepper with an egg in it and cheese on top (that’s where all the protein is). Leftover potatoes, carrots, and some fried up spaghetti squash with Sriracha sauce.
Now it’s sitting like a brick in my stomach. SO FILLING, I tell ya!
I’ll be visiting SF MoMA today! Then I gotta work on some papers, and I MIGHT go for a short run (hill repeats… perhaps).
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
